Description:

modified version of Drolyk's akdc ebuilds which includes a akdc-kwin-themes ebuild to pull in all 6 Kwin Decorations and better naming of ebuilds. Just extract tarball into your $PORTAGE_OVERLAY/x11-themes directory and unmask the ebuild ~x86 followed by emerge x11-themes/akdc-kwin-themes

how to install this on gentoo using emerge? I'm newbie and it is not working for me. I've unpacked this archive file to /usr/portage and tried to emerge akdc-corona, but got:

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "akdc-corona".

How to install this file? I'm using amd64 system.

You need to set up an overlay directory.

1. The documentation suggests to make a directory called /usr/local/portage.

2. Add PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage" to /etc/make.conf

3. Extract the tar file into /usr/local/portage/x11-themes

4. Unmask the ebuilds in /etc/portage/package.keywords

5. If you have the same problem I had a while ago, run "ebuild path/to/ebuild digest" for each of the ebuilds.

I hope this helps. BTW this all can be found in the Gentoo Docs.

really nice, I was using these till some
days ago, then I decided to get rid of
arts......
There's some way to add "-arts" use flag
to avoid errors on artsfree machines? TY

Hi,

I get the following after portage downloads the file. Am I doing something wrong or are these ebuilds outdated?

Digest verification Failed: /usr/portage/x11-themes/akdc-nvidia/akdc-nvidia-1.0.ebuild Reason: Filesize does not match recorded size

I got it working. I'm somewhat new to Gentoo and had not messed with ebuilds yet so it was not obvious to me at first.

The sizes listed in the "Manifest" files are wrong at least for me. For example akdc-nvidia-1.0.ebuild is 530B but in akdc-nvidia/Manifest it is listed as 523B.

Thanks for the ebuild :)

Doh, I forgot to mention the MD5 hash needs to be updated also.

what do I do with these files? I tried "sh akdc-kwin-themes-1.0.ebuild" but it does not seem to be a script... how do you install these?

To use ebuilds you need to be running a distro that uses portage as package manager. Gentoo, Vidalinux, Jollix, and NavOS are the only distros I know of that use it.

That's pretty lame.

How about the SOURCE for the rest of us...

On AMD64 machines this fails with a "missing keyword" error.

adding ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" before the emerge command makes this compile. and so far, this works perfect on the 64bit platform...

why not add the ~amd64 keyword to the package.
