How to install Gnome-do on SolydX
Notice: Please perform all steps except Step 1 in the Terminal Emulator of your choice.


Step 1 Download sources to your home folder
gnome-do_0.9-1+rpi1.debian.tar.xz
gnome-do_0.9-1+rpi1.dsc
gnome-do_0.9.orig.tar.gz

Step 2 Unpack sources and apply patch

sudo apt-get install debhelper dh-autoreconf mono-devel intltool autoconf autotools-dev automake libtool libndesk-dbus1.0-cil-dev libndesk-dbus-glib1.0-cil-dev libmono-cairo2.0-cil cli-common-dev pkg-config libgtk2.0-cil-dev libglib2.0-cil-dev libglade2.0-cil-dev libgnome2.0-cil-dev libgnome-vfs2.0-cil-dev libgconf2.0-cil-dev libgconf2-dev  libgnomedesktop2.0-cil-dev libgnome-keyring1.0-cil-dev libmono-addins-cil-dev libmono-addins-gui-cil-dev libnotify-cil-dev libglib2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev librsvg2-2.0-cil-dev libwnck1.0-cil-dev

I took the time to backport this for a forum user not knowing it required patching to compile. The sources provided below are already patched and should compile fine.

Thanks very much crborga, it worked for me.

The mass of dependencies that were installed, I am guessing that they have more to do with the compilation tools than Gnome-Do?
I that were the case I am good for compiling other programs I may need from source that are not on the solydxk repo.

Once again thanks for the clear instructions, and the download source (4shared I did find a little challenging to access, but I got there in the end).

There's always the chance with a different package that there will be a different list of build dependencies that you will have to accommodate. For example, glade requires quite a different list from that needed for darktable.

systems is risky at best and entails serious compatibility
problems; usually it's the best way to destroy an install"

Ok thanks for that, clever stuff that "apt" does on our behalf then.
