Vanilla packages for ricing.
What is this?
This repo provides scripts and metadata to build Linux packages for some open source programs that are not available in the defacto package repositories. This allows for easy installation of packages.
What distros or package managers does it support?
At this time Ubuntu but if anyone cares to provide packages for other systems I'm happy to take pull requests.
What packages are available?
Have a look at this PPA to see the packages and distro versions available.
What's a PPA?
It's short for Personal Package Archive and it's a facility provided by Canonical for anyone to host packages for Ubuntu.
How can I get these packages?
The Ubuntu PPA must be added to your system, and then you can install a package.
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:kgilmer/speed-ricer
Install a package:
sudo apt install polybar
sudo apt install i3
A package I'd like isn't available, can it be added?
File an issue describing the package and version you're looking for and we'll see what can be done.
