Somebody wanted gnome hearts ?

Hi,

  So someone asked for gnome hearts, the python install is missing a file, download from here, put in /usr/lib/python2.4/config/, this is easier than rebuilding Python 2.4.5, though the system does look like it gates faster if you do.

Download gnome-hearts-0.3 from here

gtar xvfj  gnome-hearts-0.3-os.tar.bz2

cd gnome-hearts-03

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static

gmake

gmake install

You should be able to see and play hearts in the games menu

Enjoy

Dave

Ps don't forget you need /usr/sfw/bin in your PATH

Gnome system monitor 2.26 on OpenSolaris B110

Hi All,

So I've been waiting for this for a long time, thanks to the gnome engineering team we finally have what Ubuntu and Fedora has Gnome System Monitir above 2.18.2, not there fault, our compilers had some issues.

I usually do a pull from the OpenSolaris gnome trunk every week

svn co svn+ssh://anon@svn.opensolaris.org/svn/jds/spec-files/trunk

Last night I found we had updated gnome system monitor to 2.26, I had to build glib 2.20.0, libgtop 2.26 and gnome-system-monitor 2.26.0.

Not that it did not have any compile issues but it was worth it, these screenshots are of the AA1 10 inch.

alt + mouse drag - life saver

So you guys probably know this, but I just found this out today.

If you get a gnome control panel or program preferences panel that comes up that does not fit on the screen and you cannot see the control buttons because they are of the bottom of the screen, you can hold the alt key down then drag the panel up the screen, holding down the left mouse button, you can  get to the hidden buttons.

gdmsetup is a good example.
