Hi, i can translate Talika to Turkish. But i can't manage to find .pot file in source tarball or svn tree. would you mind to add .pot file into source code? Also i'd like to build Mandriva Linux RPM package.

Great applet - but it needs to support themes (like dockbarx, which is missing the important window preview function)

superbar ftw ;-)

It works well in Lucid, as far as I can tell (been using it all day with no issues), even though the .debs specify Karmic. Thanks again!

For windows preview function has to depend on compiz?
The windows preview works with another windows manager (eg metacity gnome)?
good work!

Yes, it depends on compiz (i.e. called desktop effects). If it is disabled there will be no previews.

It should work with metacity or any other window manager.

I have a fresh install of ubuntu lucid and I currenty have metacity composition on. The preview works but instead of showeing a snapshot of the application it shows the icon of the app.

Is this a bug or it just doesnt work with metacity?

A icon is shown in case window is minimized.
Is it shows icon in case of maxmized windows also?

Report

sousuke

Yes. AN icon shows both when minimized and maximized. The strange thing however is that i had nautilus, midori and audacious open.

Audacious showed the correct preview, the other two did not. It seems GTK apps are the ones with the problem.

It looks like there is some bug in talika itself. I will try to fix this one soon. Thanks for bug report.

The applet works correctly on my Karmic, but appears with the Acyl icons (any color you like). Any suggestion to fix this problem?

Hi,

can you install from latest svn trunk. I tried to fix it. Let me know if problem still there.

Install using following commands. Make sure you have installed necessary build packages installed.

svn co https://talika.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/talika talika
cd talika
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
make
sudo make install

Compiz already has windows preview option..it can be combined with talika to give a windows 7 like option to manage windows...

although i didn't think i was this much of an idiot i did:

svn co https://talika.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/talika/trunk talika

cd talika

./configure & make aren't finding anything.

(~/talika$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory )
( make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. )

what am i doing wrong here?

Report

do i just merge(overwrite) what was downloaded from that svn link into a dir that has the source files? ..then compile from there?
