Maybe a bit late in the battle.

Trying to set up a proper 'xfe4' notification center, which requires ido. ( xfce4-indicator-plugin)

Build fails, I have to change PKGBUILD and add -Wno-error to CFLAGS, or else all warnings are treated as errors.

Something probably changed in two years in gcc.

CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-deprecated -Wno-deprecated-declarations -Wno-error"

Note that I tried ido-ubuntu which in turns fails du to ubuntu-gtk3 dependency issues I didn't wan to dig in.

@ThanosApostolou, please see the ido-ubuntu package. It is at 13.10 with Ubuntu patches. This package causes issues with other users if it's updated beyond 12.10. Until a new base package is released (which could now be in doubt due to Ubuntu's decision to drop development of the Unity DE), this package is not out-of-date. If ido-ubuntu does not work for you, you are welcome to create your own PKGBUILD based off this one.

@horsemanoffaith Please consider to update this to version 13.10 because mate-indicator-applet needs this newer version. Ido-ubuntu needs its own gtk3-ubuntu which many times fails to install. Instead, there is a patch to enable ido to use the native gtk3. You can see the Stefano's pkgbuild and patch for manjaro here:

https://github.com/manjaro/packages-community/tree/master/mate/ido

This patch was originally suggested by a Mate developer who is using it for opensuse:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/X11:Unity/ido/ido-optional-ubuntu-private.patch

This package has been reverted back to public version. ido-ubuntu is now available for anyone wanting to build a newer version of ido.

No problem, I can also be found on freenode. While I'm not always in #archlinux or #archlinux-aur I'm often online and hiding in #goat-dev. The channels are of course full of helpful users whenever you need help, granted in #goat-dev we are few and it's mostly nerding about automation on ARM using Go.

Once everything is sorted and ido-ubuntu is healthy I'd suggest a roll back to the public release here. While I may find pulling a specific git commit from the past mundane it isn't so for every user.

Okay, I'll email you later.

WoefulDerelict commented on 2016-02-04 22:04

I'll gladly try to answer any questions I can.

Makes sense. I already have the Ubuntu specific gtk packages here on the AUR. I will create a Ubuntu fork for libindicator and libappindicator and delete the other *indicator packages I have created.

On a side note, you sound pretty knowledgeable... any chance you could help me on some Unity related package issues? I have it sort-of working, but I'm coming across some issues I'm not quite sure how to fix.

libindicator and libappindicator and their lib32 counterparts often get flagged out of accidental ignorance. The public releases remain static while development continues and Ubuntu specific patches are released with each successive iteration of the distribution. Much the same is true of ido save that Ubuntu has seen a private major version release.

The differences between ido 12.10.2 and ido 13.10.04 go deeper than dependence on additional features being patched into the GTK. Some of the interfaces have been modified along with feature introductions which causes issues on software expecting the old interface. The bulk of the changes in libindicator/libappindicator since release have been modifying them to work with ido 13.10.X to increase their feature set. If you are running those updated libraries as built by libindicator3/libappindicator3 you wouldn't be experiencing issues: just enjoying pretty widgets.

A Ubuntu specific fork would be an ideal solution to allow all users to choose which solution they need. Are they just shoehorning a Ubuntu 12.04 LTS binary onto their system like Steam or do they want current Unity with some additions to GTK for enhanced widgets and indicators?

I haven't heard of any compatibility issues with this package, but I just may not be aware of them. I know there were issues with libindicator and libappindicator being flagged out-of-date, and that is why I updated this package to the version I did. Perhaps, as you said, I should break off an Ubuntu-specific ido. That would not present any problem on my end.
