As he posted it in public i guess it ain't a problem to link to it here. If it is, bugsbunny, let me know.

Thanks, but I get the following error when trying to compile :
Code: Select all
checking for EMERALD... configure: error: Package requirements ( xrender >= 0.8.4                   gtk+-2.0 >= 2.8.0              libwnck-1.0                     libdecoration                   pangocairo) were not met:

No package 'libwnck-1.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EMERALD_CFLAGS
and EMERALD_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

BZZZTT!!!!
Don't run ./configure - Use dpkg!
Code: Select all
fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage


You may need to install missing build dependencies like libwnck-dev
It builds/installs fine here on Sid/64 bit.
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy emerald
emerald:
  Installed: 0.8.4-1~bb
  Candidate: 0.8.4-1~bb
  Version table:
 *** 0.8.4-1~bb 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


Thanks bugs - i didn't even know this was out there.

Ok, did the following :
Download from here :
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/852410/emerald_0.8.4.tar.gz
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/852410/themes.tar.gz
( see post http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=53558#p309868 )
Code: Select all
tar xf emerald_0.8.4.tar.gz
cd emerald-0.8.4/
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot  -us -uc
dpkg-buildpackage: export CFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags (origin: vendor): -g -O2
dpkg-buildpackage: export CPPFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags (origin: vendor):
dpkg-buildpackage: export CXXFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags (origin: vendor): -g -O2
dpkg-buildpackage: export FFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags (origin: vendor): -g -O2
dpkg-buildpackage: export LDFLAGS from dpkg-buildflags (origin: vendor):
dpkg-buildpackage: source package emerald
dpkg-buildpackage: source version 0.8.4-1~bb
dpkg-buildpackage: source changed by Bugs Bunny <bbunny@example.com>
dpkg-buildpackage: host architecture amd64
 dpkg-source --before-build emerald-0.8.4
dpkg-checkbuilddeps: Unmet build dependencies: libglitz1-dev
dpkg-buildpackage: warning: Build dependencies/conflicts unsatisfied; aborting.
dpkg-buildpackage: warning: (Use -d flag to override.)


No package libglitz1-dev to be found, so I did as suggested
Code: Select all
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot  -us -uc -d


After that building succeeded ! Generated packages : emerald_0.8.4-1~bb_amd64.deb libemeraldengine0_0.8.4-1~bb_amd64.deb libemeraldengine-dev_0.8.4-1~bb_amd64.deb
Code: Select all
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i *.deb


But how to install the themes from themes.tar.gz ?

Thanks ! After starting Emerald Theme Manager a directory ~/.emerald is generated.
Unpacked themes.tar.gz in ~/.emerald
Themes to be found in ~/.emerald/themes

Wow, thanks so much for this thread, I was just thinking about emerald. It's a shame about shame and it's ashame that it isn't in the repositories. This works well and I did it in 386 and 64.

Thanks for the Debianized source bugsbunny!

Hopefully, we'll package future versions or the jasper project will mature soon enough.

I thought of trying emerald from those "beryl" old days. :)
http://releases.compiz-fusion.org/components/emerald/
tried rebuilding a ubuntu source from a ppa and it failed. so, the emerald(latest source) is debianized and it built the debian package successfully. not much to mess with and default debian/rules worked fine.

another thing needed is emerald-themes(.deb) which can be had from linuxmint repository.
http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... ld-themes/

EDIT: and for those who don't want to have the additional trouble like I did, they may try "Gnu STOW" imo. just get build depends for the emerald source and compile it and keep it in stow directory and symlinked to /usr/local/bin for eg. I tried this and works great. but, wanted a ".deb" so gone the extra mile building the packages.

Here is a excellent documentation of Stow. the how-to is intelligible to even novice users. :

Thanks.
Debian (Testing/Unstable)
