View Full Version : [gnome] how to get mini-commander gnome applet

September 6th, 2008, 10:29 AM
mini-commander is not included in the Gnome with Ubuntu. I had it in Fedora and used it frequently. This doesn't compile. There's a warning saying it probably won't.


I'd like to know specifically how to get it into Ubuntu. :confused:

I've got packages rebuilt with minicommander support. If anybody wants them, just ask.

I know mini-commander has been replaced by deskbar. However, I still prefer mini-commander which is much simpler (similar to slickrun on Windows).

Anyone managed to compile that on Ubuntu 10.10? Looks like the code at http://www.maruhn.com/mini-commander/ is very much out-dated. Not sure if someone has a version which will work on Ubuntu 10.10.

Yes, I have managed to do that and also in previous versions of Ubuntu. I have not yet been able to do it on natty 11.04. I can help you get it working in 10.10 though.
