Could you guys and girls help me install raptor-menu?

I need some help installing raptor menu. It seems really cool and I really want it.

Raptor - Improved menu system for KDE 4 | Raptor Menu

Then, on the download page (Download | Raptor Menu), it just gives some instructions for stuff to go in the konsole, but it never works for me :frowning:

Could someone please write up a comprehensive, n00b-friendly guide to installing this thing, including all dependencies and stuff so it works?

I’m running openSUSE 11 KDE4.

I’ve tried and tried and tried with kubuntu and this and it just doesn’t work for me. I know I’m doing something wrong. Please help me.

Hi

I tried to compile this a while ago :slight_smile: Today I managed to compile it by following the directions on there site. I think you need to install the dev libraries and cmake using yast. I am also running kde4.1 beta2 from the KDE4.factory repo. Only a black box ?

Cheers

I think my libs might not be in the right places. Will let you know if I get it going :slight_smile:

Thanks. I’m running the stable version of KDE4 (the one that comes on the openSUSE live CD) and I really want that raptor menu.

If you get it going, could you please post the exact names of all the libs you had to install that wouldn’t be there by default and all of the steps you had to take? I know that sounds like a lot, but it would be extremely helpful. I can’t find anything online whether I google, ask.com, or live search it.

Ok, seems that raptor is not in a usable state :frowning:

[Raptor-Menu] raptor builds but missing plugins and won’t start](http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/raptor/2008-June/000012.html)

Aw, man! :frowning:

Oh, well. I guess we have to wait for version 1.0 :’(

Yep! but svn fetches it & it compiles.
(Good find BTW)

I have a separate install for KDE4 that I have updated to the latest versions (<4.1)

SVN gets it and builds the folder & all those commands work; however, I get this when I try to launch it:


jim@linux-n6iy:~/raptormenu> raptormenubin

raptor(32241)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType  "Raptormenu/BackDropPlugin"  not found
OK, this is all you get for now, we redoing some stuff so don't complain;-)

I’ll just delete the raptormenu folder and try again in a few days:)

Have fun:)

It’s not going to make the 4.1 deadline. So I think 4.2 is when it will be ready for use. I wish people would start working on it, cause the menu concept is sweet.

DARN IT!!!

This has happened to me for so long! Please help!

After a long time, I have a similar problem.
I have partially solved:

>CMake Error: your C compiler: “CMAKE_C_COMPILER-NOTFOUND” was not found. Please set CMAKE_C_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name.

(i) you must install a c++ compiler (e.g. gcc)
(ii) pass the right argument to cmake:

cmake . -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=gcc
