Unity on openSUSE ? Maybe…

December 17th, 2010 by

I’ve packaged a bunch of indicators and some of the dependencies for Ubuntu’s Unity Desktop. The saga goes on with 3 more accomplishments today…

1. dee –  http://launchpad.net/dee (packaged and submitted)
2. bamf – http://launchpad.net/bamf (packaged and submitted)
3. nux – on the forge… currently breaks due to being built with libpng14 (Ubuntu using libpng12) and some deprecated syntax.

A lot of support libraries like dbusmenu had already been packaged before for the Indicators. One step closer…

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    SUSEbuntu? Functionality of openSUSE with desktop of Ubuntu. Sounds cool.

      Won’t it be nice if you don’t have to change distro to check out Unity? I mean, can’t be that bad 😉

  2. Nmarques rlz!

    Nux is done as well…

  4. DUDE: awesomeness. I’d love to try out Unity, just install as extra DE, really nice. I already have worked with Smeegol that way, and GNOME 2 and 3, XFCE, LXDE, having this as another choice is just über-cool.

    Keep it up 😀
