View Full Version : installing moodin
Dec 6th 2005, 10:25 AM
ello everybody :D
installed this wonderful os yesterday. been looking round kde-look and set about customising my system. wanted a sexy splashscreen, and it seems most of the cool ones need the "moodin" engine before they work.
decompressed the .tar.gz to /home/user/moodin. changed konsole dir to /moodin and did a ./configure. all was going well until it aborted:
checking for vsnprintf... yes
checking for snprintf... yes
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
what do i do? :(

I packaged the `ksplash-engine-moodin` myself. :) (Here's it's build stuff of that faithfully package (http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?upid=981))
According to this page (http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?keywords=ksplash-engine-moodin&searchon=names&subword=1&version=all&release=all) it's in Breezy Backports (http://packages.ubuntu.com/breezy-backports/kde/ksplash-engine-moodin) so make sure you've enabled it (in /etc/apt/sources.list). It's in Dapper Universe (http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/kde/ksplash-engine-moodin) in the mean time.
To install run: `sudo apt-get install ksplash-engine-moodin` in the konsole after enabling Backports and running `sudo apt-get update`

Open System Settings go to the `Splash Screen` area (under Desktop). And press 'Add', look for the tarball of the theme in that box and click it. (it will install itself)
