I don’t know that there is anybody, who knows the globalmenu applet for gnome that can be found on google code. (gnome2-globalmenu - Google Code)
This applet has no prebuild packages for openSUSE, so I need to compile it my self. Its also requires to recompile the whole gtk2 with an addition c file (patch), that makes it possible to function as it supposed to be; display the menu bar in the applet.
What is my question is, where, and with what parameters should I run the following programs, so it works as it is now with the ‘patch’?
I know that configure will needs the --prefix parameter, but where to, and is it necessary to use the --with-gdk-target=x11?
You need to install gnome-panel-devel and gnome-menu-devel among other things, if you can spare ~1 GiB of disk space on your root partition, just open up YaST > Package Manager > <extras menu> > Install all matching -devel files
I tried downloading the packages. As for the menu itself (gnome-globalmenu-0.7.10-8.1.src.rpm), I can’t find it in the repositories. If I download it using the link on the build site, I get an error message saying “there is no rpm in the pool”.
This is for the Opensuse 11.3. If I try to download for Opensuse 11.4, there is no link from the build site and I can’t find them in the repository either.
