Im running into a problem trying to do a local install of Dropline Gnome. Ive downloaded all the files from the sourceforge ftp and put them in my /var/cache/dropline-installer as per the README file that comes with the dropline installer package. I run dropline-installer --install-local and it tells me all required libraries have been found and installation is sucessful. in actual fact, NONE of the packages have been installed, and a new file (not folder) has been created in my /var/cache/dropline-installer directory called 'DroplineFiles'.
Ive run this through over and over and im nearly 100% certain i havnt screwed up somewhere. Ive even burnt off the files to cd and run --install-cd and it tells me the same result- install sucess. (but no files acessed from cd or installed) A normal install (install from internet) is not an option for me, my linux box a) has no network card and b) ive only 56k acess. Any help greatly appreciated.
Not as of yet, no. Do I need to install them one-by-one in some sort of order, or just all of them in no particular order?
A little more investigation- when I run the -upgrade (-local or -cd)switches, I get the dependency check (ok) and then a 'welcome the the dropline GNOME upgrade system' but it drops me back to the prompt...weird.
HI I got the same problem with u. however I cheated the installation. I create a script from the file list I downloaded from Gnome Dropline site and I create this script. Put them on the /var/cache/dropfile-installer/DroplieFiles and run it. It just a shell script that rung installpkg for all the downloaded tgz's try it coz it work for me :-)
However I cannot get my nautilus to browse samba using smb:///windows-box-name method , please help
Yeah, I got it right after I saw Aussie's screenshot of it. I really like it, seems like a decent Gnome, still a flux guy, but when I want to get all oopy goopy I'll use dropline now.
The only problem I am having is with my Galeon now, it really borked it, and I cannot access https sites, tells me something about a "security" package or something. Anyway, just thought I'd thrown in my 2 cents here

Can someone who installed dropline and GTK+-2 try to download Evidence file manager, and compile it please? I can't finish off my GTK+-2 lib installation, and i can't figure out why...
Anyway, If someone has time to download and compile Evidence, and show off some screenshots i'll be very grateful, the screenshots on the homepage don't show much.
Anyway here's the URL: http://evidence.sourceforge.net/
heh, I was thinking of making a script like yours laikos, i was just preparing myself for the unholy cut-n-paste ritual
Of course, i realised this after doing a half-arsed install of dropline. I just went 'installpkg *' and watched as a dozen or so packages failed dependencies, then went 'installpkg *' again. None of the packages complained that time, and gnome is....running. Stable too.
As for nautilus & smb, I cant help your there im afraid. Im not running samba, so dont know if im getting the same problem (no network card in my box till next week)
