Description:

Antico Deluxe is a fork of famous Antico WM/DE (http://antico.wordpress.com/), with some new features added and many new planned.

The goal is to create a Window/Desktop manager simple and fast, with very aesthetic
and familiar look and feel.
A very few parameters must be configured from few files, avoiding unnecessary complications, following the K.I.S.S. philosophy. Any other configurations like themes, icons etc. should be avoided. Keeping in very small size while having relatively rich feature set makes AnticoDeluxe very suitable for netbooks and low-end computers.

***********
FEATURES
***********

The overall look and feel have to be very close to MacOSX look and feel, which is ORIGINAL WORK FROM APPLE INC.

Project consist of:
1. AMELIB - support library - should be keep as small as possible, with very few classes.
2. Desktop without icons for now.
3. The Top Bar with system and applications menu, and few useful widgets/plugins.
4. The bottom Dock, which acts as taskbar and iconic application launcher.
5. NOT STARTED: File Manager
6. STARTED: System Preferences app.
7. NOT STARTED: some day-to-day use applications like text editor, picture viewer etc.
8. NOT STARTED: Login Manager

How to build:
qmake
make
make install

How to start:
Just quit your current X session and on login - select Antico Deluxe session ...
or use "test" or "myxephyr" script into antico directory

I want to continue this project, but at first I want to run it on my computer.I downloaded archive from this site, and enter in Terminal this commands:
Quote:
cd anticodeluxe
qmake-qt4
make


And after I enter "make", Terminal rap out an oath to me, it sad that in anticodeluxe folder no directory called "vorbis", and no file called "vorbisfile.h".
Quote:
vorbisdecoder.h:20: fatal error: vorbis/vorbisfile.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

Help me!! What I'm must doing???????????
You can write me to petkuz@yandex.ru
P.S.
I'm from Russia, and I don't know English very well!!!)))))

Great job, mac-like theme is just great! Leopard will always be a style example.

Well it looks okay, but that topbar a la gnome just creeps me out. If you can get a global menubar instead that works with GTK + Qt (see bespin) I'd adore you. :P

I get same error. Ame was successfully build and installed. I have all mentioned dependencies install but still get that error. I used Kubuntu Lucid.
Can you add a dependencies list?

Hi, i like your project and Antico.
I don't want to troll, but i have a question, why Antico and Antico Deluxe can't be one project? Because of of the installation? I see that Antico don't need to install.
Thank you!

Hi,
Thanks for the question.
Antico Deluxe is a fork of Antico. My project aims to be very complete mac clone which is not the goal of original Antico at all. As the times goes, Antico Deluxe will differs very very much from Antico (see TODO file and FEATURES above).
So, Antico Deluxe will have only the part of the name (I have personal permission for that) and about a few hundred lines of code for core X management from original Antico.
Thats why both project cannot be joined, at least for now.
Cheers.

Am I missing some specific X11 header files? Thank you for your reply.

Dont know, many .cpp files in AnticoDeluxe use direct calls to X11 libraries and functions; if the compiler passes through other files, you probably do not missed any specific X11 headers, just the keyboard identifiers are wrong. Any way - in my Ubuntu 8.10 box everything goes fine.

..... or, your X11 headers are not located in /usr/include

That was the key! I had to add

#include <X11/keysym.h>

to /wm/antico.h and it works. Thank you!

glad to see yo have managed the include headers, and thanks for the report. For sure, I will add the header in the next version to prevent further mistakes and compile time errors/

Well, this is not a real bug, just somewhat incompatibility with some Linux distros - AnticoDeluxe cannot find its core library - amelib.so, and thus - it crashes at startup. This probably affected a user a while ago (and many others), and he ask me here did I have an idea what's wrong - just nothing - Today, thanks to another user in our linux portal I can see the default location of AmeLib (/usr/local/lib/) may cause a crash when AnticoDeluxe stared at login manager (KDM/GDM/..) or by .startx and post here a quick workaround - just update ldconfig settings to point /usr/local/lib - as described in main page.

obviously the problem is in your compiler or my bad coding style. Anyway, I'll check this, though (if you have a compile time errors, many others might have too, which is the problem of mine :) :)

I just would like to let you know, that I have successfully compiled antico-0.2-alpha3-1. Unfortunately I forgot to remove the header files of a previous installation (/usr/local/include/ame) - that was the problem. Sorry for bothering you. Now I am going to try the latest release...
What I really like is the gorgeous logout applet.
