So I am looking here for directions:
[url]
http://www.glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?p=Paquet%20Gentoo&lang=en
[/url]
It says to use write4David overlay, but after looking in there I don't think that is the best options, I see is also says something about the sabayon overlay, which I think is a better option for cairo dock.
[url]
http://gpo.zugaina.org/Overlays/sabayon
[/url]
I have layman installed and working. What i'm not getting is mostly the keywords part and the use part. Can someone help me install cairo dock from the sabayon overlays, maybe a step by step and a explanation? I don't even have to folders its talking about, like
Code:

echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/keywords
echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock-plugins **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/keywords
echo "x11-plugins/cairo-dock-plugins **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/keywords

and
Code:

echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock **" >> /etc/portage/package.use/use
echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock-plugins **" >> /etc/portage/package.use/use
echo ">=dev-libs/libdbusmenu-0.6.2-r1 gtk" >> /etc/portage/package.use/use


I know I have used /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords before

and also I have used /etc/portage/package.use before

I just don't get why is there extra folders and is this even the right stuff to add in those portage files? I bet the guide is outdated or something, I wish gentoo had a wiki on it I would feel more comfortable with it.

Edit: Also don't I need gtk3 for this, im pretty sure I do. I know I have gtk in my use flags for xfce but I dont think I have gtk3, how do i get that?


Thanks everyone!

I would try
Code:

echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock  ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock-plugins  ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "x11-plugins/cairo-dock-plugins  ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

and
Code:

echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock **" >> /etc/portage/package.use
echo "x11-misc/cairo-dock-plugins **" >> /etc/portage/package.use
echo ">=dev-libs/libdbusmenu-0.6.2-r1 gtk" >> /etc/portage/package.use


And if it works use it.


About gtk, the name of the package is gtk+, just emerge -s gtk+ and portage will tell you if it is installed or not.

If this works for you, you could even help another people with documentation. Writing in the wiki, in the forum as a tip or on a personal blog and sharing. Someone must start the work ;-)

write2david works 4 me

#/etc/portage/package.use
dev-libs/libdbusmenu -introspection

&

#/etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
x11-misc/cairo-dock **
x11-plugins/cairo-dock-plugins **
dev-libs/libdbusmenu

gtk3 is a use flag that you're after. add it to your make.conf if you want it system wide. i prefer gtk over gtk3 but its your problem, not mine.

yes that guide on cairo dock is garbage.... above is sourced from scratch, and avoids conflicts with stable gentoo....
