SliTaz ...some Menu items need downloading
  • davesurreydavesurrey March 2010
    I've noticed that if i select:
    Menu>Graphics>edit images
    Menu>Multimedia>Watch Video
    Menu>Office>Write documents
    it doesn't run an installed app but starts tazpkg to download the apps. eg
    in Menu>Graphics>Edit Images it downloads inkscape and gimp.

    I think this is a new way of working with v3.0 and frankly I think it's a backwards step as:

    1. it forces me to download apps I may not want. eg gimp if I only want inkscape
    2. it keeps a menu item "Edit Images" which runs inkscape and adds another menu item called inkscape.
    Same for the other menu items.

    Also with Menu>Multimedia>Watch Video it tries to install gnome-mplayer which doesn't work
    and reports missing "/usr/lib/firefox-plugins".

    Thanks dave, You are right. Each pkg installation must be confirmed before installing so that you have a choice what to install. I will fix this issue.

    I will check on gnome-mplayer deps (libfirefox should be added I guess).

    Hi jozee,
    Thanks for your comments.

    If you can fix it so that one has a choice whether to install an app or not that would be useful.

    I still feel that if you download all apps then it should also delete the menu item that calls for the download in the first place, otherwise the menus are getting too cluttered.
    (hope that makes sense.)

Howdy, Stranger!
