[REPO] tint2 snapshot builds now available in BL backports repo

tint2 snapshot builds fresh from upstream source code are now available in the BL backports repository. After adding and enabling the BL backports repo, you can install them using

apt-get -t jessie-backports install tint2

The package is a backport of the Ubuntu package provided by tint2's upstream author, known as o9000 here on the forums. Watch his tint2 thread for new releases. The BL package will be updated accordingly.

Attention.

Note that new tint2 builds may introduce some new or changed behaviours that may or may not be compatible with the BunsenLabs desktop configuration packages. These builds are completely untested and unsupported by the BL dev team. Use this package at your own risk - tint2 is a core component of the BL Openbox desktop. If things break, you get to keep the pieces big_smile

It's a new idea. The plank  backport seems to be popular; so I thought a fresh tint2 might be interesting too.

Re: [REPO] tint2 snapshot builds now available in BL backports repo

Maybe this is common knowledge for people who are not noobs like me: the "jessie-backports" repo mentioned here is the one that can be installed as shown on https://pkg.bunsenlabs.org. It happens that the welcome script installs another repo also called "jessie-backports", but that one points to some Debian repo which is completely different.

Aside that, tint2 and tint2conf seem to work OK except for a crash in tint2conf when adding a new background. I'll fix that in the next minor release.
