For this to work with slackware it simple needs a backend that knows slapt or installpkg, then it's possible to install .tgz files or if slapt suppport is added you would use repositories. ( i don't really know slapt cause when i used slack it was only installpkg)

but afaik there is no such implementation right now, so if you are a dev you can check the docs on how to create a backend at packagekit.org website yourself :D

 Delay in expand/collapse

 
 by aNordal on: Nov 19 2008
 
Score 50%

In the "Software Updates" menu, I have 5 bug fix updates right now. When clicking +/- to expand/collapse that categoriy repeatedly, my stopwatch says it typically takes 4 seconds to either expand or collapse, and in the worst case 9,77 seconds. The animation is quick and smooth, it just takes so long time before it happens. Is there room for improvement?

Unfortunately, I have the proprietary Nvidia driver. Still, I don't experience such delays with other programs and my hardware is more than decent, so this is strange.

I must admit that I installed KPackageKit through Fedora repos: kpackagekit-0.3.1-5.fc9.x86_64

Despite being a little negative here, I still like the user interface, so you got my vote.

Hi, you're probably right, we forgot to turn off the animation when expanding, i'm planning a new release as soon as my work with polkit-kde is "finished", we have some new features and this is most likely to disappear.
But thanks for commenting.

 An idea for KPackageKit

 
 by blindvic on: Dec 28 2008
 
Score 50%

I have an idea for KPackageKit:
add another tab (better a window) for repositories management. A tree.
Repositories
|--Checkbox | Repository name | Last update date
|--Checkbox | Repository name | Last update date

With drag and drop ability (for priority change). Checkbox - to enable/disable. Context menu (update (also selectively), add another repository, delete selected repository.

Also add possibility to show packages by repository.

Thank you

Thanks for you comment but this need to be supported by packagekit, which afaik is not currently supported, i'll try to suggest that in the future but you need to keep in mind that this need to able to be compatible with all distros and the repositories is one thing that differs a lot.

the interface could look and work better if you make it a little bit more as the gtk/gnome version?

no, i don't :P
i have some new ideas for the ui but the gtk ui would suck in system settings as it's too wide, the gtk one is not embedded in another application, so small screens would not display it visible enough. the point i'm making is that system settings shows at the left side the modules we have and we don't have control to make that thinner. ;)

Mmm... I didn't think about that, guess you're right on that department.

But I think it looks a little clumsy a very cluttered.

But I believe you already know this, so may be you know how to improve it.

 Debian Incompatibilities

I compiled this on debian, after installing PackageKit 0.3.12 with backend=apt. When I run KPackageKit, and start an operation, I get a message saying the backend took too long, and it should fork. Can you give instructions how to compile with PackageKit 0.3.12 on Debian Sid/Experimental. (KDE-Polkit from kdereview)

K, first use polkit form extragear as i fixed some bugs that in my debian testing wasn't working..
For the apt backend that's probably a missing package that python is complaining try to run the aptBackend.py as root to see the error messages

PackageKit 0.3.12 has no aptBackend.py file, only aptDBUSBackend.py
Same applies to 0.3.13. Also, when I use pkcon get-details kde-devel, I get the package details, however, if pkmon is running on another tty at the same time, I get
"Error: internal-error : The backend took too much time to process the synchronus request - you need to fork"

hmm weird but the file is the one you found, aptDbus..py try running it as root just to see if there are errors.
try to hang on #packagekit on freenode maybe be can try to help you better there, i'm not the guy that undertands very well the py apt backend as of that i'm creating one in c++ but you should stay with the py one as it has more features..

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
