Hi, new Mint convert here, running Nadia on an Acer Aspire One D270, and liking it very much. However, one thing I miss from my old Ubuntu NBR install is the compact windowpicker panel applet, which of course is no longer available in the quantal repos.
I've attempted to convert and compile the source for window-picker-applet 0.5.10
using the migrate.sh
script, and, apparently, success! I had to modify GCC_FLAGS from "-g -Wall -Werror" to "-g Wall" in configure, and then it appears to compile with a warning that "variable ‘screen’ set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]".
However, after doing a "make install", nothing. It doesn't show up in the "Add to Panel" selection, and it returns an error code of 1 when run directly from a terminal. Unfortunately, here's where my knowledge stops. I've somehow managed to avoid learning C along the way, and I'm far from an expert on gnome/mate panel applets. I can just about follow what the applet code is doing, and I can provide my version of the converted source, along with any other help I can, but can anyone point me in the right direction to get it working?
