Hamster can be found packaged in most distributions. The instructions below
are for installing from sources for testing and development purposes.
The instructions are mix between Gnome 2 and Gnome 3, so, errm, just bear with
Previously hamster was installed everywhere under
the applet is long gone, the paths and file names have changed to
hamster-time-tracker. To clean up previous install follow these steps:
git checkout d140d45f105d4ca07d4e33bcec1fae30143959fe ./waf configure build --prefix=/usr sudo ./waf uninstall
apt-get install git-core gettext intltool python-gconf
yum install git-core gettext intltool gnome-python2-gconf
./waf configure build --prefix=/usr sudo ./waf install
After that make sure that the old daemons aren’t roaming around:
killall hamster-service && killall hamster-windows-service
Now restart your panels/dockies and you should be able to add hamster to your panel!
