here, it doesnot build becuse the cflags for dbus arenot provided to CC. Probably the configure configuration lacks of the dbus-1 settings. There is a small workaround to fix this in this PKGBUILD:


CFLAGS+=" `pkg-config --cflags dbus-1`"
make CFLAGS="$CFLAGS" || return 1

instead of the make||return 1 line.

Investigating florence for use on a tablet.

I can not get autohide to work.

I have done: gconftool-2 --set "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility" --type boolean "True"
and confirmed it is set using gconf-editor.

I also have /usr/lib/at-spi-registryd autostarting as per the Florence documentation.

Any hints?

Please add gnome-doc-utils as a makedep, for it's needed for this program to compile. Thanks!

if you don't have gnome installed (e.g. lxde) you need to
gconftool-2 --set "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility" --type boolean "True"
to get autohide feature working.
thanks for the pkgbuild

Thanks, added a few more dependencies also with version checks, if I missed any please let me know. Btw, namcap didn't came up with those but during ./configure they're needed though, seems namcap isn't that reliable after all.

There are more dependencies such as 'intltool' and 'gnome-doc-utils'.
