xfburner: location on xfce desktop?


I have just removed KDE from my install.

Having done so, I didn't expect to find Brasero, but I did assume that xfce would have a default burner, and on looking it up, i find it is called xfburner.
But I cannot locate it in my new -zenlike- radically denuded, non-kde cluttered xfce desktop....

Can some1 help with this?

xfburn is not part of a full Slackware installation, oddly, but you can get it at SlackBuilds:

Thanks again.
Could you go one more and remind me where to find the best, step-by-step overview of how to install software, using builds, on slackware.

(i've yet to take the plunge and install anything, not having had to until now)

thanks Roky,
I had the wrong name: it is xfburn and, as you can see from JW's reply, it is not part of the standard slack install

cheers,
tex

Here's the HOWTO, but I'll give you the rundown, having just taken the plunge recently, myself:

Download the "xfburn.tar.gz" file
Download the dependencies "libburn" and "libisofs"
Untar the files
Open the .info file for each, and find the URL to download
wget in console to download each of the three (xfburn, libburn, libisofs)
Put those downloaded files into each respective folder that you had untarred
In console (as root): chmod +x xxxx.SlackBuild (with xxxx being that particular SlackBuild)
And then: ./xxxx.SlackBuild

This will put slack packages into your /tmp folder

Again, as root, in your /tmp folder:

installpkg (name of each package file placed in /tmp folder)

Be sure to install the dependencies before you install xfburn.

Then you should be good to go. There's an easier way to do all this with SBOpkg, but I haven't delved into that, yet.

Thanks heaps.
I'll make this my task for 2mro.
My eyes just melted and drooled all over the keyboard... which is to say, time to hit the hay.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Hopefully, it goes well. There was a bit of trial and error for me when I first started using SlackBuilds, but I figured it out pretty quickly.

Previous post removed. I see that you quite clearly stated that you removed KDE. I should learn to read.

libburn -> libisofs -> libisoburn -> xfburn

You can try with new {libburn,libisofs,libisoburn}-1.3.0 and xfburn *future* v0.50 (http://git.xfce.org/apps/xfburn/). Here built fine with -current, except a missing icon, easily corrected:

My very first slackbuild, unsupervised! (I decided to try something that required no other files to be dloaded before grappling with the burner for xfce)

Nearly there?
But....?


Code:
root@tickles:/home/tex/slackware/packages/source/Xfce-Theme-Manager# dir
README                          Xfce-Theme-Manager.info  slack-desc
Xfce-Theme-Manager.SlackBuild*  doinst.sh                xfburn-0.4.3.tar.bz2
root@tickles:/home/tex/slackware/packages/source/Xfce-Theme-Manager# ./Xfce-Theme-Manager.SlackBuild
tar: /home/tex/slackware/packages/source/Xfce-Theme-Manager/Xfce-Theme-Manager-0.1.18.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
root@tickles:/home/tex/slackware/packages/source/Xfce-Theme-Manager#
I am be-numbed at how hard this is.....

Can anyone please tell me why this is returning "No such file ...." when clearly it seems to there?
Thanks,
Texterical

According to that dir command, you don't have a file called Xfce-Theme-Manager-0.1.18.tar.gz in that directory which you need in order to run that SlackBuild which is for Xfce-Theme-Manager. If you want use that SlackBuild, you'll need to put http://keithhedger.hostingsiteforfre...-0.1.18.tar.gz in that directory. (/home/tex/slackware/packages/source/Xfce-Theme-Manager)
