Welcome to the ayatana-repository wiki!

This page is an overview about the process of adding Unity into the [community] repository of Arch Linux.

Indicators

bamf

  • Differences from Ubuntu:
    • Built without unity-webapps support, because it would requires much more dependencies, and I want to keep bamf as a small, lightweight library.
    • Ubuntu uses the /usr/share/applications/bamf.index file to cache desktop file table. It is regenerated on every time when a desktop file installed using apt trigger. Since there is no equivalent functionality in pacman, this file is not available on Arch Linux, which cause a minor performance loss on login.

indicator-messages

  • Differences from Ubuntu:
    • Ubuntu uses a patch for GTK+, to create custom menu items (to show icons, message counts, and the application-is-running triangles): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+3.0/+bug/1039476
    • Ubuntu uses some custom shortcut groups in the applications' desktop to show some custom actions.
    • Ubuntu uses a non-standard X-MessagingMenu-UsesChatSection=true property in the applications' desktop files (e.g. in empathy) to decide if the chat status section needs to be displayed or not.
