gnome-mahjongg-3.38.2.tar.xz not installing


Hi ZK,

I try too install gnome-mahjongg-3.38.2.tar.xz .
I created a file: /root/Mahjongg and downloaded it in that file.
download site:
https://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-mahjongg/3.38/

Then I did the following 'zk' command in the terminal:

root@4MLinux:~$ zk /root/Mahjongg
Creating archive:
gnome-mahjongg-3.38.2.tar.xz
Compressing archive:
addon_new.tar (1/1)
100 % 2,991.2 KiB / 2,992.0 KiB = 1.000 0:01
Done!
root@4MLinux:~$ zk /root/Mahjongg/addon_new.tar.xz
root@4MLinux:~$

Nothing happens after the last 'zk' command. Just a short blink.
As far as I know I did everything right, but hey, there might be a catch..
Perharp I miss a compile script in the terminal?
Anyway, just like playing with this stuff and finding things out.
I like your approach towards linux. No ugly inlog screen and no systemd.
Perhaps the safest linux distro around, feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
Kind regards, Edward

Hi,

1) Try to run "zk.sh" (instead of "zk") to see the output.
2) You forgot to compile the program :-)
Many examples of the 4MLinux build scripts can be found here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin...s/35.0/addons/

PS.
I've compiled this game. It seems to work in 4MLinux. You can try it by running the following code:
Code:
wget dl.4mlinux.com/addon_gnome-mahjongg-3.38.1.tar.xz
zk.sh addon_gnome-mahjongg-3.38.1.tar.xz
glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
gnome-mahjongg
.

If that doesn't work, PysolFC has some nice Mahjong games.

I'm partial to Double Canfield solitaire, myself.

.
Thanks a million, it works!
Have tried to compile it myself first, but got lost.
(Perhaps worth another thread (glib?), but I don't want to take up your time.)
So I used your code.
Just out of curiosity, are you doing this 4m project all by yourself? I mean everything?
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin...s/35.0/addons/
Thanks again, I need to keep training my brain as I get older.

Hi Edward,

Nice screenshot. Are you running 4MLinux in a real machine or VirtualBox ?

Basically, there are two developers: me and my cat

Real machine on a stone age laptop. That's all I need. For now as my next laptop might be one with touch screen,
so hurrah for the touch screen feature!
Spoil that cat! Very impressive as most linux distro's has teams, even company's behind the scenes.
May you continue with this project till quantum machines take over.
Greetings!
