Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

hmm, archlinux' [community] is still on 16.1-1.
guess i'll have to wait a few days.
the git version is stable enough.
btw, you are absolutely right, i'd rather switch back to windows then start using another panel big_smile

Only gentoo has picked it up so far. Gentoo and slackware have been the most responsive over the last few versions.

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

Certainly those distro must have an Hoas-alike maintainer on their package manager big_smile

I've just flagged it as out-of-date, it should be updated soon wink

I tried to flag the Alpine package but there's an error with their website redirection so I will have to email the maintainer.

I happen to know that the OpenBSD port is currently maintained by @shep, who is active over at forums.debian.net & daemonforums.org so I could tell him as well (or update the port myself and send him a diff, which would be preferable).

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

I already flag it for arch and a few other distros. No need to email them.

OpenBSD is a different story, because they patch it heavily, but they never contacted me to try to integrate anything, so more work for them I guess.

In the case of tint2, the port is maintained via the mailing list:

https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&r=1&w=2

This means that any OpenBSD user can update the port — I would have done it myself but I use dwm in my OpenBSD box.

I have wanted to learn OpenBSD porting for a while now so I will take the opportunity and see if I can do it for this new release glasses

EDIT: don't hold your breath though, I ain't fast big_smile

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

I'm sure it's not complicated, but I think it's best for the project if the package is maintained by regular users.

What bothered me a bit was that I was seeing all kinds of patches in various distros, some that didn't even do what they were supposed to do, and the only distro that always contacted me about them was gentoo.

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

FYI In case you want to try helping them (or any other distro) with the packaging, I don't want to get involved. If there is a bug report on gitlab, I will reply, otherwise you're on your own.

Description:
Tint2 is a simple panel/taskbar made for modern X window managers. It
was specifically made for Openbox but it should also work with other
window managers (GNOME, KDE, XFCE etc.). It is based on ttm

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

^ Well, the last update was to v14.6 but the package was tint2-0.14.6, as you can see here:

http://openports.se/x11/tint2

I have no idea why the version starts with "0." but I thought it best to keep the practice.

When I sort the patches and submit the diff, I will raise the versioning issue with the ports tree maintainers, thanks!

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

Hold on a minute, you changed the versioning after 0.14.6, didn't you?

Ooops...  ops

Ah well, easily corrected, thanks for the heads-up.

EDIT:

Puffy:~$ pkg_info tint2 
Information for inst:tint2-16.2

The Makefile is cleaner now as well smile

Indeed. Thanks.

Since it looks like you're enjoying this kind of activity, the debian package has been out of date too for a while... wink

Hmmm, yes poor old sid is lagging a bit hmm

When the OpenBSD port is updated I will try a non-maintainer upload for the Debian package, that should be fun big_smile

You can't do that unless you're a Debian Developer with upload rights. (You're not, are you?) Even if you were, the correct procedure is to contact the maintainer, offering the patch, if you've got one, and suggest that they upload an upgrade. NMUs are for exceptional circumstances, like the maintainer is MIA, or the patch is very urgent and the maintainer can't be contacted...

tint2's Debian maintainer has a big list of packages to take care of, but last updated tint2 in November, which isn't so terribly bad, really. The latest upgrade has been noticed so it will probably come through before too long. If it is indeed urgent, you could certainly consider sending him a message. smile

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

Hi! First thanks for tint2, awesome bar. There is a minor issue I experienced. Searched everywhere and landed here in the end. I use it on a touchscreen device, multiple (2) desktops, vertical. When I click on the icon, it "toggle_iconify"s (as it's set), when I do it via touching, it's the same - everything fine.

However when I touch an icon (task) and want to switch to the other desktop by touching on it (instead of clicking), it drag&drops the icon there. Via mouseclick it switches the desktop as it should, showing the open windows there. Here an other user described the same on bsd. When I touch the icon, touch the same desktop, touch the other desktop, it does not drag&drop the icon. I have 0.12.12-3 (on stretch based debian). Is there anything I could try to stop this drag&drop behavior?

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

BL currently uses tint2 16.6 -- you can install it from our distro's main repository 'helium'. The packages are built for Debian 9 and are fully compatible. I suggest before debugging a strange behaviour to install the latest available version, since it's unlikely the developer will address issues with ancient versions, and given that in this forum most people are probably using tint 16 also. For repo information, see <https://www.bunsenlabs.org/repositories.html>.

Re: tint2 16.2 released :)

Thanks for the suggestion. Tried different versions but the issue remains, via touch the icon gets drag&drop.
