I was just wondering if anyone had created an ebuild or overlay to try out Ubuntu's netbook remix launcher? Some packages are available at: https://edge.launchpad.net/~netbook-remix-team/+archive It looks like it's a window manager for Gnome with a Nautilus replacement.

Are there any other tabbed launchers available? I've played around with Matchbox. However, I'm not really happy with the results.

I have Gentoo on an EeePC. A tabbed launcher would be very nice.

Thanks for any information!

Chris

I would also be interested in netbook-launcher on Gentoo.
Are there any news about this?

You can check out my overlay at github. I've been maintaining it for the last few months and using the packages on my eee for a while. There's still a few issues but overall it works. I'm hoping to get it into the tree once I have more time and testing. I'm also considering making an unofficial image for people to use for an install but that's down the road. Once Ubuntu Karmic is released, I'll try pushing to get it into the tree. We need to get someone to maintain the clutter ebuilds though as I don't want to maintain those.

Let me know if you have any issues with the overlay! It should be in layman as "netbook-remix".

is anyone still messing around with this? i'm looking for a full screen big-icons application launcher for my xbmc setup. xfce4-appfinder is... almost, but looking at screenshots i'd like to try netbook-launcher as well.

i emerged it from the gnr repo. first problem was that the ebuild wanted to install clutter-1.0 and clutter-1.2 on top of each other without correctly slotting, which resulted in collision errors. having tweaked that around a little bit, i got everything emerge around clutter-1.2.10, but netbook-launcher simply segfaults on launch. backtrace doesn't do anything useful.
