Just execute 'rodent'.

Following is a PKGBUILD and rodent.install file for a 5.2.8 build.

fyi: installs some kind of desktop environment.
it does include a file manager, but i have not figured how to launch it seperately.

launching "rodent" does not launch a file manager.

Was using chrpath to fix a weird RPATH issue in a previous version. Should be fixed now, any other issues let me know.

RTFM.pdf is installed to '/usr/share/doc/@RC_DIR@/'
Change '$(datadir)/doc/@RC_DIR@' to eg. '$(datadir)/doc/@PACKAGE_NAME@' in Build/share/
chrpath is not needed - use:
'./configure --prefix=/usr' and 'make install DESTDIR="$pkgdir"'

With the new version, I just can't make it to compile and install, I will disown it so someone else can make it work

I am back. Tried to update the script, but it won't compile.

There is not an obvious error message to debug. The closest to that is:

rm -f missing notexist
srcdir=. /usr/bin/intltool-update -m
The following files contain translations and are currently not in use. Please
consider adding these to the file, located in the po/ directory.


(sounds more like a warning). I am trying to sort it out. If you can, and you are happy to become maintainer, I will be happy to transfer that duty

Version 4.9.2 is out. As you're not using Arch anymore if you are looking for someone else to maintain this package I'd be happy to.
