Re: Version 1.6.0 released

This problem is confirmed and will only impact users that changed the buttons displayed in the toolbar. It can be fixed by following instructions here:

I am not the only one that deserves thanks. I think zombiepig did most of the new code in this version, including startup improvement wink

Re: Version 1.6.0 released

Can't install 1.6 on openSUSE here because of missing sort::naturally (with ./install)!? What's that exactly and where can I find that...

Thanks

Re: Version 1.6.0 released

This module is used to fix the bug reported here :

http://forums.gcstar.org/viewtopic.php?pid=6292

The package to install should have a name such as perl-Sort-Naturally. Try to find it with the installer. I haven't used SUSE since years. Is it still yast?

Re: Version 1.6.0 released

Yes it's yast (or zypper over konsole) but really no package in with perl-Sort-Naturally or libsort* or.... strange. Also searched only for *sort* or *natur* but nothing, no such perl package there in openSUSE 11.2

I have openSUSE 11.3 64bit KDE. Yes there is no sort::naturally in YaST but you can install it (it's so easy). go to http://search.cpan.org/~sburke/Sort-Nat … turally.pm and donwload the tar.gz file (http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/ … .02.tar.gz) then follow README for installation.

Re: Version 1.6.0 released

There is an easier way to install GCstar on openSUSE.

Go here: http://software.opensuse.org

Click on "search options" and uncheck "Exclude user's home projects".

Select your version of openSUSE (such as 11.2, or 11.3, or etc,).

Search for: gcstar

You will see a package built by badshah400. Click on "1-click install" and just follow the steps. It will connect you to the proper repositories, download and install the dependencies, and if you choose to stay subscribed to the repositories, you will automatically get any updates when he builds newer versions of GCstar.

Right now, version 1.6.0 is available for openSUSE 11.2 and 11.3, but 11.1 only has 1.5.0 available on this user's home repository right now.

I still wish there was an RPM for openSUSE on GCstar.org itself.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
