Alltray in Foresight

I’ve recently packaged up Alltray, a handy tool for keeping items minimized to the gnome task bar, in Foresight Linux. For those of you who new to my blog…I’ve recently switched jobs to from the state of Virginia (project management) to work for rPath, Inc. rPath is responsible for some innovative software development tools centered around the Conary package manager and also creates a minimalistic linux distribution that serves as source for Foresight Linux. I’ve recently become active in helping develop the KDE Version of Foresight Linux.

I’m by no means a programmer. I’ve been hired on as a documentation specialist. Yet, Conary is simplistic enough that I can roll my own packages. I’m quite impressed by it’s simplicity and power. If you’d like to help out or are curious about KDE Foresight or the Conary package manager, visit us on freenode #foresight-kde

For those of you wanting alltray goodness…update via Packagekit by searching for alltray OR:

sudo conary update alltray

    If you are using KDE, I think you should definitely try out KDocker. I prefer it over AllTray.

    Jake,

    Thanks for sharing this :D

    I’ll be packaging this up for Foresight KDE Edition :) I’ll continue to post about both Gnome and KDE Editions as I’ve been given a unique perspective in developing both :)

    Thanks! I will probably give Foresight a try again soon, or at least the KDE version. I’ve stuck to Kubuntu mainly because of hardware support, but I am willing to try some more distros.
