Description:

Here is an i386 RPM of the current CVS (23/07/2003) Slicker, basically development is a little slow at the moment so this is trying to stir a little interest in the project once again.

At the moment there are an initial 9 cards available for slicker all included in the RPM and also a new taksbar is being implemented to replace the original one.

Please remember this is PRE-ALPHA so in no way is intended for day to day use, and we know that new features are needed etc.

So please feel free to come join in at #slicker on irc.freenode.net of try the webpage at http://slicker.sourceforge.net.

sure you can - just open up Gimp and you are a step closer to creating a background for your desktop where you can comment on the cards you have :-)

Hi there,

Just installed the RPM in my Mandrake 9.1, and man, this is very good stuff. My desktop looks so much cleaner with these cards, please keep up the development in this Slicker. Because it ROX !!!

I like the embedded cards a lot, and they are so easy to configure, its great ! Is it possible to add two windows in one card ? What i mean is that, i have my xmms player (which now sits neatly in a embedded card... luv it), but it would be even cooler to add in the same card my playlist). Would clean up my desktop even more :-)

It's great stuff, putting a console near a monitorside makes switching back and forth so much easier.

Ah enough, IT'S GREAT !!! If you have Mandrake 9.1 run the rpm... it will blow you mind ! :-)

Keep it up guys.

I tried installing, and it says that it needs libGLcore.so.1 to install. According to slocate, it's in /usr/lib. Why won't it install?

I have this problem too, in RedHat Linux 9. If anyone can help, I would be much obliged.

Thanks.

I have some solution. This will work on NVIDIA cards for sure. When Slicker asks for libgl just install "NVIDIA_kernel-0.8-305.i586.rpm" and then "NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386.rpm" (names may differ a bit, of course, find em on rpmfind.net). This will make Slicker RPM install correctly. But this will also make X-server NOT start next time. To fix this, install brand driver from NVIDIA website. Mine looks like "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run". Before installing, check dependency (binutils is needed).
Good luck! I'll probably answer on questions that may appear.

I think that currently, the X-embeding card is the most useful one (and impresive)

Every since I heard of this project I have been waiting to see it blossom and grow. I think that when this happens it is going to become great substatue to the infamous & overdue for a make over KICKER and a huge improvement to KDE. Please keep up the good!

Drop shadows on the cards.. like the kde font drop shadow patch, or like in window decoration drop shadows. Just an idea for enhancement.

that is planned, just as soon as either

1) Xfree gets its arse into gear

2) Xfree forks and things like taht are worked on

as the dropshadow stuff is a workaround and not a part of X. But it will be there oneday (maybe even slicker may develop a workaround)

Also the transluency in the screenshot and the anti-aliasing of the cards won't be possible soon. (AFAIK)

A source tarball would be a little more helpful... what distro is this RPM for?

i built it on mandrake, but getting the CVS is just as easy just do:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/slicker login

#Password is blank so just press enter

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/slicker checkout slicker

Then enter slicker Dir and:

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure
make
make install
