Here's a link for everyone who want to download them:

I really like when someone contributes in developping games for *nix, since games are maybe among the last link of the Desktop chain.

Wishing you the best!

 Could not compile

The Screenshots looks nice, but unhappily it isn't possible for me to compile it under SuSE 10.0.

I get exactly the same problem that Betamax had with the same error message, but on a Suse 10.1.:

/usr/lib/python2.4/config/libpython2.4.a(posixmodule.o): dans la fonction « posix_tmpnam »:

Maybe is it a Suse-specific problem?

If anyone can help, cause Boson really looks like a big game!!

I've figured out what the problem is, but not knowing much about the Cmake way, I haven't figured out how to actually fix it yet.

The linking step occuring here needs to include "-lutil" to work properly. I'm going to plunge into cmake next and see what incantation it needs to specify this.

Okay, here's an update. This is by no means the best way to do this, as there has to be a way to tell cmake to do this for you, but this way will get it compiled:

Edit each of the following files:

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/bocommandframetester.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/boconditioneditor.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/bocreatepreview.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/bofileconverter.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/bomodelpixmaps.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/borender.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/boson.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/boson-no-gui.dir/build.make

  • ./code/boson/programs/CMakeFiles/bounit.dir/build.make

look for the huge link command in each iof these files. It occurs a couple lines after an "echo Linking" command. You can't miss it, as the link step is a huge line with lots of '-l" something or other at the end of them. To the end of each line, add '-lutil'.

When you are done editing, you can run the make command again. It should all build. Basically, some systems (such as Suse and FC) have the openpty and forkpty functions in the util lib, but cmake doesn't seem to figure out it needs this. As I said before, there's a much better way to do this, but it's the end of the week and I didn't feel much like digesting yet another manual. :-)

Anyhow, I hope this gets you playin'

for ubuntu users this has been in the universe repo since 5.10. Just look for it in Synaptic and highlight it for install.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
