Hey folks, more new apps !!

The gtk2.dsl has *finally* been upgraded !
The new file is now called gtk2-0705.dsl

I have posted all the updated apps that work with this new
gtk master file in the 'testing' area, along with the gtk2-0705.dsl


Use it the same way as before..
1. Use myDSL to install gtk2-0705.dsl
2. Run from menu, "Update to GTK2"
3. Read .info file about requirements for app you intend to install
4. Add additional gtk2 app thru myDSL as desired.

I always recommend to have gnu-utils.dsl  installed when using gtk2 apps.
I have the dsl-dpkg.dsl , along with the gnu-utils.dsl, loading at boottime.

If I receive little in the way of negative feedback here soon,
I'll migrate these out of 'testing', and into the gtk2 area quickly.

Here's the scoop...
I was able to update a whole slew of libs, to keep up with
needed changes to some of the more popular apps, like gaim, etc..
I also upgraded perl to 5.8.7 ..  and added many more new files,
while keeping the filesize about the same as before. ( 14MB's)

But the BIG difference in the apps is the new upgrades,
the resized icons for DSL-1.3.1, and the smaller app sizes !
( In Preparation for LinuxWorld Expo in August! )

Expect many more app upgrades on these items..
Much easier to do with updated libs without collisions..

Check out these numbers !!

Also added

Once I squeeze in the libbonono-ui set, and some gnome libs,
I think we'll be able to have many of the other extensions in gtk2 form.
( many gnome apps, gnumeric, etc.. )

Now, back to other extensions already contributed by the userbase..
I have about a dozen to be released shortly..

I was scanning thru the 'unstable' debian repository,
and most of these apps seem to be at, or a version behind,
the latest ones available thru apt.

This is a great time to add some more extensions,
while the libs in gtk2-0705 are current.

Make a list of the contents of gtk2-0705.dsl

type in a root shell from your gtk2-0705.dsl location
"  tar -ztf gtk2-0705.dsl > list  "

Use this list to whittle down the filesizes of any new apps you build.

Great job, as usual!

This must have been a major undertaking.  I, for one appreciate all of the hard under-the-hood work that you do to keep things humming and improve at the same time.

wow !

thanks, one query if I specify the gtk2 update to run at start on a frugal install or hd install for that matter, can I script it to run the update off of the mydsl menu automatically (does that make sense)

thanks for your other post which made me realise where I was going wrong with Firefox 1.4
