Major changes! I've updated this package, mostly changing the dependencies.

First, I've dropped gconf because it hasn't been needed for quite some time (needs to be dropped from pantheon-session as well, btw).

Also dropped is cerbere, which is deprecated. This change is not reccomended for pantheon-session (5.0.3), which is not using gnome-session's --builtin management to keep wingpanel and plank running.

Following Alucryd's lead, I've set this package to depend on the versioned libraries of wingpanel and gala rather than the packages themselves (this should also be done for pantheon-session). The immediate effect will be that you can install this package and have a working wingpanel (2.0). At some point, it may be required to bump those versions in this package, while pantheon-session will remain behind (as the "stable release").

As far as I can tell, nothing as yet has been written explicitly for wingpanel 3.0 (wingpanel-git), but that time will come.

@btd1337

How are you building this?

It should get gala and wingpanel from [extra] when built in a clean chroot, until their sonames bump (when new stable releases get packaged).

btd1337 commented on 2021-03-07 05:59

It needs to update PKGBuild dependencies to build works correctly.

depends=(
  (...)
  gala
  wingpanel
  (...)
)

@bkb

Thanks for the feedback! That sounds very familiar.

The symptoms are the same as were had quite some time ago, when gala, cerbere,or g-s-d would fail to start.

To be sure: you ought to have read the wiki, which would have told you that wingpanel is empty by default and plank does not have its autostart. There's a possibility you are looking at empty wingpanel (black or transparent top bar), no plank (missing startup), and an empty background (no theme or backgrounds package). This could be remedied by installing any wingpanel indicator and creating plank's autostart, if that is the case.

I will look into if I can reproduce your situation and if there is another cause (failed to build autostarts, etc.).

EDIT: The package I built in a clean chroot includes all the autostarts it should, in the directory /etc/xdg/autostart/.

This package gives a mouse with the background. But nothing else possible. It doesn't seem to xdg autostart anything, and in fact the installation doesn't seem to copy anything in the xdg start directory

@btd1337

This package does not depend on the -git versions of its dependencies, although it is a development tip itself.

I believe it will build without any trouble against the stable release of wingpanel, etc.

If that ever changes, or when the new wingpanel gets a release and the [community] package is updated, I will bump the dependency version.

Edit: in the mean time, if you wish to use wingpanel-git with it, you might try obfuscating the library version it installs.

As yet nothing I am aware of is explicitly written for the new version and the major difference between them is removal of previously deprecated methods.

It needs update to support libwingpanel-3.0.so

wingpanel is failing for me as SolarAquarion described as well

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-08-10 17:45

wingpanel had a soname bump which causes wingpanel-git to fail

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-06-17 01:21

onboard is a dependency now
