My Tint2 and Conky Configs (borrowed of course)
« on: May 29, 2015, 06:24:40 am »
my tint2 will show opn top of the screen with the date on the left followed by however many virtual desktops you have and then the system tray.  the desktops are translucent except the one you are on so you can tell the difference. use obconf to adjust the number of desktops.  obconf is a gui and easy to use.

conky will show in the bottom left and is a minimal conky

because of the background i have that is light on top and dark on the bottom my tint2 uses a darker text and conky uses a lighter text

info on hexidecimal colors here: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp


also here is a link to the tintwizard independent binary that i just made but havent tested yet.  it can be useful for tweaking tint2 but remember to open your tint2rc in /home/user/.config/tint2 before making changes and saving.  it doesn't open your tint2 by default it just shows a tint config and if you save it over top your own you will not be happy.  speaking from experience.

also here is a debian independent binary for tint2 ver 0.12rc5 that is supposed to have a tint2conf, a gui tool to edit tint2.  also i haven't tested it yet.  the source is here:  https://gitlab.com/o9000/tint2


if you wish to make your own debian binary of it

start by installing some dependencies:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake autotools-dev dh-make debhelper devscripts fakeroot xutils lintian pbuilder dh-make cmake git

also we need some more specific dependencies that require the enabling of source repos which sparky has by enabled default so

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get build-dep tint2


now create a directory to build it in

Code: [Select]
mkdir build directory

cd build directory

mkdir tint2

cd tint2

now we clone the git directory where the new tint2 is located

Code: [Select]
git clone https://gitlab.com/o9000/tint2.git
to build the source we need an original tarball in a specific format but the git directory doesn't include the required version number for the tarball to be built so

Code: [Select]
mv tint2 tint2-0.12

cd tint2-0.12

now we need to build an origional source tarball

Code: [Select]
dh_make -p tint2-0.12 --createorig
this puts that compressed file in the next higher directory in the tree. 

it will ask what type of binary you want to build.  press i for indpendent and hit return twice

when it finishes, continue the build

now per the build instructions for the package

Code: [Select]
mkdir build

cd build

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ../

i got an error asking for librsvg-2.0 so i then searched synaptic for the file

sudo synaptic

enter librsvg-2 into the search field and installed the file that matches that as well as it's -dev version

reran the

Quote
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ../

with no errors.  if you get other errors just search synaptic, install the matching file and its -dev version, usually right below or above it in synaptic

then did

Code: [Select]
make

now the build instructions ask us to sudo make install but instead, since we are building the independent binary, we will

Code: [Select]
cd ..

dpkg-buildpackage -b

when that finishes

cd ..

sudo dpkg -i tint2-0.12_0.12-1_all.deb

and now you just need to restart tint2.  i vote for using the taskl manager, lxtask, and seacring for tint2 and killing that by right clicking over it and selecting kill and then running tint2 from the main menu->run command and typing tint2 in the gexec window

i havent tested the build yet in debian but on another distro i could edit tint2 with the command tint2conf and it should show in the applications under preferences or system

I happened to be in an ubuntu based distro that came with me meerkat (intel nuc from system76) and built it on there and tested it and it works great

It's done.
Tint2 0.12-rc5 is installable from our repos now.
I put it in 'unstable' repos due the status of the project.
Anyway the config GUI works well.

Installation (both i386 and amd64):
Add 'unstable' repos:
Code: [Select]
deb http://sparkylinux.org/repo unstable mainto the file:
Code: [Select]
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.listRefresh package list & install:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tint2
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Thanks for this.  I had not looked at tint2 in quite a while.
