Tint2 Backport Repo?

Hello! Is there any backport for tint2 on Devuan Jessie? I really want to touch the recent changes of tint2. But Jessie prevent me.

I don't want to change jessie sources.list to (test/sid) just for tint2, If there is a chance only to update tint2 via backport, I would be very interested.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Tint2 Backport Repo?

You could built it from source... i.e. create your own backport from the package source in the unstable repository.

Thanks for your suggestion cynwulf, I should have noted that i did not wish to compile because there are too many dependencies to install:

sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libimlib2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libxinerama-dev libx11-dev libxdamage-dev libxcomposite-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev librsvg2-dev libstartup-notification0-dev

translated into my system

nili ~ $ sudo apt-get install -s libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libimlib2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libxinerama-dev libx11-dev libxdamage-dev libxcomposite-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev librsvg2-dev libstartup-notification0-dev

I'm honestly not interested throwing inside all these packages on my bare-bone system, I look backport as a practical way for me.
Perhaps I'm asking too much, but i saw on BunsenLabs they've made a repo for tint2 and a few other packages.

I thought if there was such thing here too. My research for tint2 backport didn't find much.

Once again thank you for your suggestion.

Re: Tint2 Backport Repo?

Well generally, one would:

# apt-get build-dep tint2

Make a "build" directory in your /home/your_user

$ apt-get source tint2

Then build the deb package from the source in the usual way (dpkg-buildpackage in a fakeroot environment).

Once the package is built, the build dependencies (dev packages) can be removed.

Re: Tint2 Backport Repo?

OK! I will do it! Very acceptable suggestion. I should have thought of this possibility early.

I'll make this work a go now...

Re: Tint2 Backport Repo?

It's called "backporting".  It's generally what you have to do if something you want isn't available.  It's actually more or less how the Debian backports started out.  Originally they weren't official repositories but as time went on, got absorbed by the project.

It's far better and more rewarding to learn to do it yourself, than hanging on in the vain hope that someone else will do it for you...

Good luck and stick with it.

You can build it in a chroot or VM which you completely trash afterwards.

I do not have much experience compiling or making a .deb package. I have done once or twice (successfully) but not much,
Everything for my needs got it from Debian/Devuan repo.

Now that want something outside official repositories, I must do myself some tasks.
Indeed DYI is way better and rewarding in the end is worthy.

Good suggestion, but I dared without it. tint2 is not a big deal, i can go without VM.

Thanks for your suggestions.
I'd not give up doing install from source, even though the first time did not go that well. I'll make this with all my modest strength smile
