Thread: Cairo-Dock Missing... Where to get it?

  1. #1

    Default Cairo-Dock Missing... Where to get it?

    I will also make a small 'note' that Audacious music player asks for a dependency that seems unable to be met. (Type of codecs. No repo has it available?)

    SO, I want to install Cairo-dock.

    I have searched RPM's online with google.

    I have found in short no RPM's listed for 13.1.

    I have found some old ones for 12x.

    I saw some also for... Factory and Tumbleweed listed.

    I finally enabled Factory and disabled the standard repos momentarily to get it.

    It's not there!?

    So anyone have a clue how to get and install Cairo-dock in OpenSUSE 13.1?

    I just installed this from the install DVD not that I think it matters but if it does.

    It's also about the only thing I can't find for a basic setup. I use this computer in my classes.

    It's a small easy to carry notebook.

    I usually run Xfce and wanted to get Cairo-dock here but seems unable and there seems also no 'selection' of the other docks commonly available in Linux?

    wbar? Others?

    No, I'm not interested in Docky and Gnome stuff and actually... I have been away from KDE for ages but for the purpose of class thought it might be interesting for the kids with the 3D eye candy so I also want something that will play nicely there.

    Also just familiar with Cairo-dock for my uses.

    At the moment it seems to not exist? Yes, I also saw it listed in Packman but... it's not showing up.

    Anyone have a clue?? Cairo-dock is missing...

    Install "audacious-codecs-extra" from Packman.

    If that doesn't help, please open a new thread and explain what you mean exactly with "Audacious music player asks for a dependency that seems unable to be met", i.e. exact error message, where/when do you get it, what type of media are you trying to play, and so on.

    I finally enabled Factory and disabled the standard repos momentarily to get it.
    You did what?

    If you want to run Factory, you have to upgrade to it via "zypper dup".
    Otherwise your system will break sooner or later.

    But I guess you _should not_ do that.
    Better remove the Factory repo again and stay with standard 13.1.

    The version on Packman is too old, it doesn't build:
    https://pmbs.links2linux.de/package/...tra/cairo-dock

    Apparently nobody cares about this any more.

    Maybe ask on the Packman mailinglist, or file a bug report:
    http://lists.links2linux.de/cgi-bin/...stinfo/packman
    http://bugs.links2linux.org/

    But it is available on OBS even for openSUSE 13.1:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/cairo-dock
    Just click on "Show possibly unstable packages" and you should see quite a few providers for the latest version 3.3.2.

    OK, so there's no build... pity.

    About Audacious... packman or the packman I 'have' doesn't allow me to get those missind dependencies and they're the codecs but I'll take a few moments and get the exact message here:

    WoW! Guess not... I used zyper to add something called 'Packman all'.

    It rather gave me the impression that 'all' of packman wasn't accessable?

    Now there's no complaint about a missing codec for Audacious and it's installing.

    I have nothing special to play. In fact on this computer I don't even have Music!

    It's for school use. Though I may have music on a USB or something at times.

    I use Audacious because it's noted as being fairly light and my music playing or media player needs are very simple... Plus I like the 'winamp' theme option.

    Guess that problem 'solved' itself and thanks for the heads up... nothing can be done for Cairo-dock at the moment.

    Before it just gave me a message, I should say Yast that it couldn't install without a particular codec and that the coded was not available. I believe it was 'win32' or such. (Not the actual codecs which I did install already... for windows 32 as they're called. This machine is a bit old so it's 32bit Atom CPUs. I don't recall the exact name and as I said... it seems to be solved now.)

    Sorry, just got an understanding of your note there... I should probably add I'm "NEW" to using OpenSUSE huh?

    I had actually done the package search before without realizing I could 'click' that line saying show unstable packages!

    I had done that before playing with the repos and yes... I have put my repos back the way they came.

    I really don't want stable and have no interest in Tumbleweed nor Factory.

    I have found the 'unstable' Cairo-dock now... thanks for the info. Very much.

    Well, so you probably only added Packman Multimedia at first?

    Most of the necessary libraries are in Packman Essentials.
    But if you add Packman All that's enough of course, as this contains _everything_ from Packman, i.e. it's the combination of Essentials, Extra, Multimedia, and Games.

    Before it just gave me a message, I should say Yast that it couldn't install without a particular codec and that the coded was not available. I believe it was 'win32' or such.

    You should not need w32codec-all anyway. That was useful years ago, but is mostly obsolete since years already.

    But it's hard to give concrete answers without any exact error messages and the like...

    But how did you find the package for Factory or Tumbleweed then?

    I really don't want stable and have no interest in Tumbleweed nor Factory.
    ???
    You don't want stable, and have no interest in unstable (i.e. Factory)?
    What do you want then?

    "Unstable" in this case just means that it is not officially included in the distribution.
    That doesn't mean that it is likely to crash your system.

    PS: regarding your mentioning of adding the Factory repo, and your confusion regarding Packman, I suppose it would be a good idea if you posted your current repo list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
