Re: [solved] last version of Nitrogen needed

Most apps you just cd to the source directry, then "./configure" "make "checkinstall" then you have a .deb you can install with apt, gdebi, synaptic, etc. If it builds with scons or some other build system it will usually say in the documentation for the program. IIRC though, I could set separate wallpapers when using twinview in statler. In the GUI it's the second button from the left, in between the zoom mode and background color. Then you can just put nitrogen --restore in your .autostart.sh so the changes persist after restarting the machine (if it isn't there already).

Re: [solved] last version of Nitrogen needed

According to the readme the process goes like this:

  ./bootstrap
    ./configure
    make
    make install (as root or a user with proper permissions)

But in debian, the best thing to do IMO is use checkinstall in place of "make install" because make install will just place the nitrogen binary and related files in your filesystem somewhere, and the only way to get rid of them is to hold onto that build folder you made and run "make uninstall" or to manually find the folders and delete them. With checkinstall, you will be able to uninstall the program through your package manager later.

Re: [solved] last version of Nitrogen needed

^I usually find the "make install" route just easier and there is nothing wrong to have it in a dedicated build folder e.g., I know where it is and "make uninstall" is nothing inconvenient.

Re: [solved] last version of Nitrogen needed

Ok guys,

Thank you very much for your replies, but the problem is that there is no 'configure' script in the archive !
'bootstrap' script is ok, but then ...what ?  wink

Re: [solved] last version of Nitrogen needed

Just make sure that whole archive is cloned to your machine, navigate to the folder and type in

./configure

But on a side note, are you absolutely sure that you can't already do what you're trying to do with your current version of nitrogen? Because I know I've done it before in statler without upgrading nitrogen. It should be the drop down box to the right of the one with the scaling options, in the bottom left corner.
