In Gnomeplanet I noticed this blog of the maker of gimmie.
Curious about gimmie I made a .deb package of gimmie and installed it.
Extract it , with nautilus, right click the package > extract here….
Continuing now with the console…..
sudo apt-get install build-essential fakeroot checkinstall libgtk2.0-dev python-gtk2-dev
checkinstall is an instant creator for .debs.
(hit enter (default) when checkinstall asks some questions)
sudo dpkg -i gimmie_0.2.3-1_i386.deb
And gimmie is installed
To run gimmie key in alt-f2
Type gimmie and start
If you like it and wish to run it after startup of Gnome:
System > Preferences > Sessions , click new and add gimmie
Gimmie looks like a colorful panel-replacement app for Gnome , and hope to see it in Ubuntu repositories soon 🙂
