Where can I found the indicator source?

Asked by Dave on 2017-10-23

I'm compiling libappindicator and it stops because it needs indicator-4.0. I looked around and found libindicator, but it turns out not to be the right library.

I haven't had much luck searching for 'indicator' on the net.

Anyone know where to find the indictaor source please?

The commands

sudo apt-get build-dep libappindicator
apt-get source libappindicator

are supposed to download the complete source and install all additional software packages needed for compiling (you need deb-src entries in your sources.list files for that to work).

Which Ubuntu version are you using - what is the output of the commands

uname -a
lsb_release -crid
apt-cache policy libappindicator1 libappindicator3-1

Hi. I found that libappindicator and dbusmenu-gtk were only what I needed. Unfortunately libappindictaor fails to build. Make errors out, which I've reported.

I'm not actually using Ubuntu, but the bug link on libappindicator page brought me here.

Your problem seems similar to the last comment in https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libappindicator-gtk2-ubuntu/

Yeah, and I tried those patches, but the error remains. Now I'm looking around to how other distros packaged it.

It looks like PKGBUILD does more or the same configure options that I've been using.

Can you help with this problem?
