.SlackBuild request for DoubleCMD


Hello fellow slackers,
I have found a nice program called DoubleCMD which is the closest I have seen to commercial TotalCMD for windows. And apart mc, I have been waiting for such app to appear in Linux world for ages. Now it has appeared, but I am not good at writing .SlackBuilds so I would like to ask for someone also interested in this application, to share a .SlackBuild with me. If it is not too much trouble of course.

Many thanks,
Egidijus

This should be the HOWTO to create a SlackBuild: http://www.slackwiki.com/Writing_A_SlackBuild_Script

(the link on the slackbuilds.org page link to slackwiki.org which is no longer registered.

Thank you for a suggestion, I am sure, I will have to learn this sooner or later, but at the moment the time is tight on me, plus if i click on writing howto, I only get empty white page of Slackwiki.org with the link to Legal terms in the center, which leads to another empty white page. Weird.

The stuff needs a pascal compiler, so that is where I stopped creating a real package... but if you get the SlackBuild scripts for fpc and lazarus from http://slackbuilds.org you can use the following SlackBuild as a starter (no guarantees, but it should work according to the installation instructions):

You can always download a "portable package" : http://doublecmd.sourceforge.net/

You could also use Alien BOB's SlackBuild generator: http://alien.slackbook.org/AST/
I guess thats what he used to create the above scripts.
Although it works fine it hardly ever gets mentioned

Slackware comes with p2c, a Pascal-to-C converter. Any chance that that would work for this?

If you are feeling really lazy and can't be bothered with the SlackBuild right now, you could quickly repackage one of the binary packages they provide for another disto. The Double Commander download page has an "openSUSE Build Service" link with several rpms. I just did the following on 32-bit Slackware 13.37 and it seemed to work fine for me.

Download the Mandriva packages to your /tmp directory:

Code:
wget -P /tmp http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Alexx2000/Mandriva_2010.1/i586/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1-2.2.i586.rpm http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Alexx2000/Mandriva_2010.1/noarch/doublecmd-help-en-0.5.0-6.1.noarch.rpm
Switch to root and issue the following (assuming your use a Bourne compatible shell) to repackage to Slackware format (copy and paste it into the terminal if you like):

Code:
mkdir -p /tmp/doublecmd-repack/{install,usr/doc}
cd /tmp/doublecmd-repack
rpm2cpio /tmp/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1-2.2.i586.rpm | cpio -id
rpm2cpio /tmp/doublecmd-help-en-0.5.0-6.1.noarch.rpm | cpio -id
mv usr/share/doublecmd/doc usr/doc/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1
( cd usr/lib/doublecmd ; ln -sf ../../doc/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1 doc )
cat << EOD > install/slack-desc
doublecmd-gtk: doublecmd-gtk (Twin-panel commander-style file manager, Gtk2 version)
doublecmd-gtk:
doublecmd-gtk: Double Commander is a cross platform open source file manager with two
doublecmd-gtk: panels side by side. It is inspired by Total Commander and features 
doublecmd-gtk: some new ideas.
doublecmd-gtk:
doublecmd-gtk:
doublecmd-gtk:
doublecmd-gtk:
doublecmd-gtk: http://doublecmd.sourceforge.net/
doublecmd-gtk:
EOD
makepkg -l y -c n /tmp/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1-i586-1ro.tgz
Now you can go ahead and install:

Code:
installpkg /tmp/doublecmd-gtk-0.5.1-i586-1ro.tgz
After I did this Double Commander showed up for me under Xfce's applications menu in "Accessories" and it seemed to start and run without issues.

P.S. If "Double Commander" doesn't appear in your applications menu under your Desktop Environment immediately, then issue the following as root

Code:
update-desktop-database -q /usr/share/applications

Last edited by ruario; 11-11-2011 at 07:44 AM. Reason: corrected doc location; fixed update-desktop-database command which was missing a /; simplified and added a slack-desc

Good morning,
Wanted to thank you all for help, I have tried Alien Bob suggestions, installed fpc and lazarus from slackbuilds.org, then tried SlackBuild, and it worked well , I now have a package of DoubleCMD and my Linux feels complete now

Many many thanks to all who took time to help.

P.S.
I think comparing my ability to learn SlackBuilds, to 99 year old, was a bit rushed. Given some quality time with them, I might learn a thing or two after all, so I'll give it a shot sometime soon, but probably with a program little bit easier than DoubleCMD
