Diodon on non-Ubuntu systems


Here is a screenshot of Diodon on a non-Ubuntu system, in this case,
openSUSE 11.3. I ran the same binary file that I compiled on my Ubuntu
system. it does indeed fallback to a normal GtkStatusIcon. In order for it
to work, we will need some extra shared libraries, as shown in the
screenshot. Of them all, only libjson-glib-1.0.so.0 was already packaged for
openSUSE. According to the folks in #ayatana, we could packaged these with
our source code, and use a compile-time option to detect of the system
already have these libs, or we could try to get these packaged for other
distributions we support.


Once these libraries are in place, the application works flawlessly.
