Hi,
Is this the right package to merge:

Code:

igor@LearningRight ~/wxWidgets $ emerge -pv motif

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Well, I merged this package but to my surprise there is no OpenMotif/Motif/Lestif in my gdm options menu.

What am I missing?

Thank you.

Motif is a graphical toolkit like GTK+ or Qt, not a desktop environment like GNOME or KDE. Thus, it won't show up in your gdm menu.

If CDE ever makes it into Portage, then you can try out a Motif-based desktop environment.

Hi, Hypnos,
Thanks for the reply.
Is there an ebuild I can try to install CDE?

I tried to do a manual build using this, but there is no "build-essentials" in Portage...

Thank you.

Found this and this -- looks like the "build-essential" tools come with the Gentoo "system" set.

Hypnos,

Here is the list of CDE dependencies and my guess on them from Portage:

Hi, pvh1987,
I want to try CDE for the sake of wxMotif port.
They still have couple of old bugs that belong there and I want to verify they are no longer applicable.

The problem is that Wiki page lists dependency that is not "easy to find":

- git (for downloading from source repository)

This is a git packagde

- build-essentials or build-essential

No idea what is it. Portage does not seem to know about build-essentials/build-essential

- libxp-dev

This is libXp

- libxt-dev

This is libXt

- libxmu-dev

This is libXmu

- libxft-dev

This is libXft

- libmotif or libmotif3 or libmotif4 (Openmotif, in non-free or restricted)
-libmotif-dev (Openmotif, in non-free or restricted)

Those are motif

libxaw7-dev (used by dtinfo)

This is libXaw (not sure about 7 though, is it version of the package?)

- libx11-dev

This is libX11

- x11-xserver-utils (for xset)

Portage does not know about this. The closwest it can find is dev-perl/Net-Server-Mail.

-libjpeg-dev or libjpeg62-dev

This is jpeg

- libfreetype6-dev

This is media-libs/freetype

- tcl-dev

This is dev-lang/tcl

- ksh (required for database to any script, and probably dtksh building)

This is app-shells/ksh

- m4 (required for nsgmls building)

This is sys-devel/m4

- ncompress (old style unix 'compress' needed when building help files)

This is app-arch/ncompress

- xfonts-100dpi (for nicer looking fonts)
- xfonts-100dpi-transcode or xfonts-100dpi-transcoded

Don't know which font packages I need to install.

- rpcbind (or portmap) requires running in insecure mode (-i) see section 1.6 below

This is net-nds/rpcbind

- bison

This is sys-devel/byson

- xbitmaps

Is this x11-misc/xbitmaps or x11-apps/bitmap?

Any help of identifying missing stuff and confirming the guesses would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Like I said, the items in "build-essentials" on Debian are just provided by the system profile on Gentoo, so you don't have to install anything extra for that.

libXaw.so.7 is provided by libXaw. The "7" is the library API version.

You probably want x11-misc/xbitmaps over x11-apps/bitmap .

My recommendation: try it, see what happens! Resources on how to write ebuilds here and here.

The motif package does come with a window manager called mwm. I don't think it gets added to the chooser, but you should be able to create a custom session in /usr/share/xsessions to do so. There might also be ways to make desktop environments use it rather than their default window managers, but I don't know offhand if it can be used in this way with any modern desktop environment.

Note that as a "bare" window manager, mwm is nowhere near as complete as a desktop environment like KDE or GNOME, so if you use it directly, be prepared for a minimalist experience similar to using Unix in 1990 or thereabouts.
