Gnome-Pie in Arch/ Openbox
So, maybe you’ve heard of Gnome-Pie, maybe you haven’t… On a really summed up note, it’s menus which are activated via keybindings.
There’s a video demonstrating it here.
Anyways, it’s really useful and pretty and you should know by now, I’m a sucker for pretty and cute things ;P
I’ll be using the simplest method (via aur) so if you want to do the whole thing manually, go to that guide which I mentioned earlier.
1) Type in the terminal
yaourt -S gnome-pie
2) Did it work? Great, now you have gnome-pie and all you’ve gotta do is add it to the autostart file
Add the line:
(sleep 2 && gnome-pie) &
Save and you’re done. ^^
3) It didn’t work? Now let’s see the dependencies. On the error, there should be info about which packages are missing.
The dependencies are: bamf-bin, cairo, gdk-pixbuf2, gnome-menus, gtk2, hicolor-icon-theme, libgee, libunique, libxml2 and libxtst.
For me, there were a few packages missing:
checking for module ‘appindicator-0.1’
— package ‘appindicator-0.1’ not found
— checking for module ‘libwnck-1.0’
— package ‘libwnck-1.0’ not found
— checking for module ‘libgnome-menu-3.0’
— package ‘libgnome-menu-3.0’ not found
So I solved it easily installing gnome-menus and libbamf-bzr.
Note: one of them (I think it was libbamf-bzr) wanted to install ubuntu-gtk or someting of the sort and it was conflicting with gtk2 – I just said no and it didn’t finish installing everything – but it had already installed the libraries I needed so be smart on this one and if it seems like it’s going to replace something or it doesn’t find anything, just skip it – it probably already installed what you need anyway ^^
Any doubts? Feel free to ask me ^^
