Question Can I run Gkrellm on Fluxbox without having Gnome??


Hey folks,

I've got FluxBox installed over here (using the slackware .tgz file), and I wanted to run Gkrellm since it's a great addition to Fluxbox in my oppinion. However, i have not installed Gnome and during installation a directory named gnome is created in which gkrellm gets installed. This allready concerned me, and my doubts got confirmed when I *tried* to run gkrellm, which failed.

Anyway, does this happen because i got a bad package, or does gkrellm really need some Gnome libs??

Please help... I'm dreaming about Gkrellm at night...

CathodioN.

We can't know - you haven't posted the output of gkrellm, which should include an error message. Run it from a terminal (e.g. xterm) and tell us the errors it produces.

(tip: when you get gkrellm running use the "-w" switch to drop it in to the FluxBox slit)

It is this error I get to C

root@BrotthaThree:/opt/gnome/bin# ./gkrellm
./gkrellm: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

Hope this helps.

gkrellm is not a gnome application, it's a gtk+ application, which is significantly different. if you have the gtk libraries installed then there is no reason it won't work.

To add onto Mr. Kewpie's post...The error message in which you get is eluding to the fact that you do not have the gtk+ libs installed, as was suggested previously. Find em on the install cd for slack and install 'em with installpkg. Probably in the g dir or something like that.

Because gkrellm uses GTK (gimp tool kit) just like gnome and gnome apps do.

Becuase the maintainer of the Gkrellm packages decided to put it there.

If you mean the source package - it gets installed to whereever you select with the --prefix switch to ./confgure, just like 99.9% of the rest of the software out there.

thanks for your replies,

I installed the gtk+ package but gkrellm still doesn't run. i'll uninstall gkrellm and install it with the source file and C what happens then... I'll post the results here.
