Re: Light Software Center


The details pane is already partially implemented, but we decided with mefrio to develop a backend library, and not to share a GUI (or at least not each part, since lubuntu too has some guideline).

Stephen, are you going to work on this nice Details pane in Dan's mockup?

And currently the naming is a bit different (and strange for me ^^) for
the pane names.

    Whoa, this looks seriously cool! I couldn't try it myself yet, but
    I've reported the bug I'm experiencing.

    The build instructions have some typos in them, here's what worked
    for me:

    # To build the sources
    # To build the database
    cd db-build && sudo ./dbbuild -d /var/cache/lsc-vala.db
    # Then you are ready to try
    cd .. && src/light-software-center

    Spinner not spinning is a known bug reported at http://pad.lv/1020355
    We did not suspect theme before; I've marked the theme as affected,
    thanks for letting us know!

    I wonder how extensible Light Software Center is. I'm pretty sure
    every DE using it will eventually try to add more desktop
    integration features, e.g. showing installation progress in
    application launcher (similar to what USC does). Providing DE
    integration via extensions instead of forks would be great!

    Regarding showing dependency tree, I'm not sure what problem would
    that solve. It seems to be fine without it, so probably don't bother
    implementing it.

    Gotwig: yes. It's app-install-data, not USC who provides both
    descriptions and translations, so we inherit them automatically.
