Is English an option during install? Thanks.

Offtopic: scary that I was able to understand 90% percent of words on that site.

English is the default installation language! We also made an English version of Gslacky-2.18.3 homepage!

Do you have your build scripts or installer online, or do I need to download the ISO to check them out?

Yes you can find source, SlackBuild, install-script and package on Slacky.eu Ftp server! http://gnome.slacky.eu/gnome/12.0/2.18.3/ the arrangements of files is exactly the same of Iso image!

But, please use torrent or ftp mirror for download Gnome-Slacky 2.18-3 so that Slacky server's congestion can be prevented.


PS. Gnome-Slacky replace only 7 packages from Slackware 12.0!

( Esound, Gnome-icon-theme, Hicolor-icon-theme, LibGsf, Libidl,
Libsrvg, Vte)

I just installed it and I'm running Gnome-Slacky and I'm running it as I type. The install was the smoothest I've ever seen. I like your work. PLEASE KEEP IT UP!

Thank's to Massimo Cavalleri for GSlacky installer!
We are working also for a Gnome Slackware repository in www.slacky.it!

Is trackerd a Gnome Slacky component?

Gnome Slacky worked great until I tried to hibernate it using suspend2 (which so far had worked perfectly). It crashed while suspending and when I rebooted, my system was borked.

So I reinstalled Slackware and IMMEDIATELY reinstalled Gnome Slacky. While using the console and running things like xorgconfig and the NVidia installer, I kept getting screens full of error messages headed by the words "pointer error," "glibc" and "trackerd". I know I should have written down the exact words of the error but I didn't.

While I love Gnome Slacky's nonintrusive design, the installer is great and I certainly think you should continue, I think I'll wait for the next version before I try to use Gnome Slacky again .

Trackerd is the Tracker Search Tools daemon! It' easy to disable, under settings/preferences/session! I think to remove tracker dependencies from Nautilus, this for the next GSlacky 2.20.0!

Thank's for report the problem! GSlacky was built and tested only under standard Slackware 12.0 kernel! I need to build a custom patched kernel for testing suspend2! Maybe it's a gnome-power-manager related problem http://www.nabble.com/suspend-not-working-t2544954.html

Bye

I'm 95% sure that I was getting trackerd errors even when I was not running X. Does Gnome-Slacky set Slackware up to load trackerd on boot?

While we're on that topic, what, if anything, does Gnome Slacky add to Slackware's bootup sequence?

I couldn't find this information on the "Gslacky Eng" page. I'd check the documents on the Gnome Slacky CD, but I don't have it handy at the moment.

Trackerd daemon is started by a desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart! This is not a GSLacky settings, but the default Tracker settings!

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Tracker
Name[de]=Tracker
Name[es]=Tracker
Name[fr]=Tracker
Name[it]=Tracker
Name[pt]=Tracker
Name[sv]=Tracker
Comment=Tracker search and indexing service
Comment[de]=Tracker Such- und Indizierungsdienst
Comment[es]=Servicio de búsqueda e indexado Tracker
Comment[fr]=Service de recherche et d'indexation « Tracker »
Comment[it]=Servizio di ricerca e indicizzazione di Tracker
Comment[pt]=Serviço de procura e indexação Tracker
Comment[ru]=Служба поиска и индексирования Tracker
Comment[sv]=Sök- och indexeringstjänsten Tracker
Icon=
Exec=trackerd
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
X-KDE-autostart-after=panel
X-KDE-StartupNotify=false
X-KDE-UniqueApplet=true
NoDisplay=true
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;KDE;XFCE;
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Bugzilla=GNOME
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Product=tracker
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Component=Indexer
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Version=0.6.0
GSlacky add a little script in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Code:
echo "Updating GDK Pixbuf Loaders and GTK immodules..."
/usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
/usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 > /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules
this is a workaround for "gnome-settings-daemon" startup problem!

And add a little desktop file in /usr/share/gnome/autostart! For automatically update mime database!

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Mime Update
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=1.0
Name[it_IT@euro]=Mime Update
Exec=/usr/bin/mime_up
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true

I installed Gnome Slacky again.

When I'm running GNOME and I switch to the first virtual console, I see the following message being reprinted every three seconds:

Code:
** (nm-applet:3306): WARNING **: <WARN>  nma_dbus_init(): could not acquire its service.  dbus_bus_acquire_service() 
says: 'Connection ":1.8" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo" due to security policies 
in the configuration file'
So I disabled the network manager as well as the the tracker and things seem to be okay now. Hibernate works (YAY!) and I'm not seeing the error messages I mentioned in my last post. I will post again if I have further problems.
