Patch for mintInstall

Postby Cybolic on Thu Sep 18, 2008 5:18 pm

Hi there!

First off, I'm very happy with how Mint has turned out so far, it is very close to perfect for me.

One thing that I felt was missing, or a bit on the "cheap" side, was the way searching for debs in mintInstall worked - displaying only the console output from Aptitude - so I reworked it to display the results in a list view, and fill in the name of the package in the search entry when double clicking a package in the list.

It's not localized, so will need that work done to it by someone who knows how, but I hope it gets accepted anyway :)

Is this based off of mintInstall 5.2?

No, it's based on the latest version for Elyssa, so I guess it's kind of obsolete now - but nice to have on my machine so far at least :)
I didn't know there was a new version of mintInstall coming out, where are things like this posted?

I've just installed mintInstall 5.2.1 and I see that the part I've changed is still the same as version 3.9.1 (which is the version i worked on), so the changes still apply.
I'll work out a patch or just a set of files as this time, for version 5.2.1 shortly.
I guess I should contact Clem instead of posting here, or is this the preferred method?
