wanting to install wmalms missing header files


I do suppose Slackware does not have anything to do with these header files.
http://wmalms.tripod.com/ dockapp I am trying to compile

trying to get a dock app that shows cpu temp and speed mostly. this one is missing or showing cannot be used issues for lots of headers.

does anyone know a simple way to get them install and or working if not installed?

torvalds/linux
linux/include/uapi/linux/limits.h

that got a mean it is part of the Kernel source soo I am a bit lost here on this one.


Code:
configure: WARNING: limits.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: limits.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?

Sorry, it appears that lm_sensors package is missing
Please, obtain the package from
    http://www.netroedge.com/~lm78/download.html
that is a dead link

Hi,

The sources you're trying to compile are quite dated (Feb 2004), so it's normal that they can't be compiled in a modern distro. Today's kernel headers are a lot different from those 13ys back.

If you want an dockable app, to show you info about your system, you can use conky, or gkrellm to name a few.


FYI lm_sensors homepage is now located at https://github.com/groeck/lm-sensors and there is also a package for Slackware.

Regards

I've got gkrellm. I use it in Fluxbox, and I've done conky but this is WindowMaker it still has that 13 years ago look maybe even older as I am sure it has been around before Linux. So dockapps are like the thing to use in it. Anything else just does look right in it.

I just cannot get one to do my cpu temp is all.

They've all been written to use a different method so some dockapplib 3.0 I think it was that is not even findable and makes no sense seeings how the dockapp lib file by that same name is only 0.2.4 or something like that.

that is the thing about all of these dock apps they've all been abandoned when WindowMaker has been just updated. The latest stable version is 0.95.8, released on 11.03.2017. 11 March 2017. Seems no one wants to support its auxiliary items its based on other then host them on github. Which is Dockapps.

anyways it was worth a try.
Code:
Makefile.am  backlight_on.xpm   dockapp.c  files.h    main.c~   wmbatteries
userx@slackwhere⚡~/Downloads/wmbatteries-0.1.3/src $./wmbatteries
wmbatteries 0.1.3  (c) Florian Krohs
<florian.krohs@informatik.uni-oldenburg.de>

This Software comes with absolut no warranty.
Use at your own risk!

No ACPI support in kernel
I got lm-sensors installed - that's why I pick that dockapp it is suppose to work off of it. Because the others use that ACPI --- gerp..
Code:
userx@slackwhereš~ $sensors
radeon-pci-0100
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +49.0C  (crit = +120.0C, hyst = +90.0C)

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Physical id 0:  +50.0C  (high = +86.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 0:         +46.0C  (high = +86.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 1:         +50.0C  (high = +86.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 2:         +44.0C  (high = +86.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 3:         +49.0C  (high = +86.0C, crit = +100.0C)
thanks for your input.

Never used WindowMaker, but this looks promising

wait .. you've established a LQ Guru title. Which takes some time to get and you've never not one time played around with WindowMaker?

what have you been dong with your play time?

basic rule of thumb on WM
Just find out how to log out of it first then install login and play around with it. move on to a different one if it bothers you, maybe go back later and play with it some more.

they're free and do not take that much to set up the basics of it, just need a menu, and means to get to it, and how to logout if need be. Basicly. Not to worry I've not tried every WM out there just lots of them.

WIth slackware already having a hand full to try out, I tried them all and then some. but anyways...

DockApp:
looks nice huh?

Yep - tired it. Got a compile it, this is what I get.

Code:
checking for dockapp... no
configure: error: Package requirements (dockapp) were not met:

No package 'dockapp' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables dockapp_CFLAGS
and dockapp_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
userx@slackwhere⚡~/Downloads/wmgtemp-1.2 $
the ones I do have running do not need outside help like that needing something called dockapp or that libdock (may not be actual name) with a version number that is not even on the internet. this area I am not fully familiar with as I should be.

Though as I said I'd rather have dockapps that do not rely on outside sources like that to work.

I do suppose I can google that PKG_CONFIG_PATH and see if that is really telling me I can by pass that dockapp dep.Though I doubt it, that is just a KEY WORD to be used to give a path statement to needed sources.

I'm happy with fluxbox, so there is no need to try other WMs.

Fortunately there is a Slackbuild for it.
