It was working alright in Kubuntu 23.04 with Plasma 5.27.
I used install instructions for Arch Linux. From original Luwx/Lightly (which has not worked properly in Kubuntu since Plasma 5.24 - The titlebar of Dolphin is not transparent) with chaotic-aur. And manual install instructions from boehs’s fork:
git clone --single-branch --depth=1 https://github.com/boehs/Lightly.git
cd Lightly && mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF ..
sudo make install
manual installing gives following errors:
MustaJoutsen% cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF ..
CMake Error: CMake was unable to find a build program corresponding to "Unix Makefiles". CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set. You probably need to select a different build tool.
CMake Error: CMAKE_C_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage
CMake Error: CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
How to solve this OR is there a fork that works with Manjaro?
Just a note that this will sync and install, which is good.
But you can can also include some flags for cleaning the build directory, and removing unneeeded build packages (only required for the build, not for the package dependency).
Having omitted them in the first case, you may now have ‘orphans’;
P.S. The commands are Sooo different to Kubuntu…
P.S.P.S. I’m making KDE Plasma Lightly Colour Schemes https://www.pling.com/u/plingsaarinen
and I will use this as an instruction in my themes for Manjaro and Arch users.
