Thread: Gmate Availability?

  1. #1

    Default Gmate Availability?

    A search on "gmate" turned up nothing, so looking for how to make this work. I found the install instructions for "Other Linux" (non-Ubuntu) here:

    https://github.com/gmate/gmate

    Then I looked for "python-sexy" and found that it is unmaintained here:

    https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Python_3_Status

    As that is not an 'optional' dependency, is there any way forward?

    (Note, I did find pyinotify and python-webkitgtk, the other two required dependencies)


    Thank You.

    Well, python-sexy might be unmaintained upstream, but there's still a package available:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/python-sexy

    Thanks. Finally got that to install. I really wish there as a "localinstall" option for zypper, and that Yast modern-Gui version wasn't affected by ruby version manager. But the "DOS-Flashback" version of Yast finally got me there (run 'yast' as root from a console). One also needs to install python-gconf (not listed in the gmate instructions).

    Then gmate didn't work / have any effect. It just opens gedit, and none of the special features are present. But then, the gmate install instructions stop at running the sh script. Maybe there are other steps to actually make it "do something." Or maybe it is because I use Gedit v3, and the python3 dependency?

    -----------------

    To any others who venture here, note that the Atom editor, open-sourced from the github folks, is workable. Another struggle-and-cuss ride of an install on a "non-ubuntu" OS, however, as there is no binary (AFAIK):

    But at least Atom works. It's not highway-robbery like jetbrains, nor buggy like Aptana, and its snappier than Aptana or Netbeans.

    Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean.

    The YaST modules themselves are written in ruby, so text-mode YaST is "affected by ruby version manager" just the same as the GUI version. (and the GUI _backend_ is actually written in C++).
    In fact both should _not_ be affected by RVM, as there has been an update that was intended to force YaST to use the system's ruby installation.
    I don't know whether that works as intended though, I do not use RVM.

    There is! At the prompt in a console, type in the following:

    Code:
    zypper in *the path to the local file*
