GTK project moved to Sourceforge

Posted 08-22-2009 at 11:22 AM by radiodee1


I've moved my project 'Gaptsearch' to Sourceforge. Here's a link to the project:

The idea behind the project is that I like to do all my updates with 'aptitude' from the command line, but at the same time I like a gui for searching through the project database. To this end I made such a gui, called 'gaptsearch', for doing this display work. I don't use the aptitude ncurses interface.

The current version of gaptsearch searches the application database using aptitude or apt-cache (you can specify which) and displays the output on the screen without invoking the commands as root.

Gaptsearch does not execute any of the commands 'update', 'upgrade', 'remove' or 'install' and in that sense really isn't a package management tool.

At this time there's a deb file available for i386 and also a source tarball which has the debianized sources and makefiles. This tarball can be used to create your own deb package. During the build process you will need 'build-essential', 'fakeroot', and possibly other glade and gtk packages.

My system is debian testing/unstable, so the deb file works for testing. I have also tested the deb on lenny and ubuntu 9.04 and it seems to work in both cases.

This software is free but I recommend interested parties read the licensing material. There is no warranty, not even the implied warranty of "MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE."
