Re: PrjectCenter (and Gorm) ask for old gnustep-base library in FreeBSD

Well, the aim was to keep things simple and just use the packages, but along the road, discipline failed and I stared to use the ports for whatever reason. I suppose that being your own System Administrator is something that has to be learned too.

Does this make it useless to report 'bugs' I find on my system, until I do a  complete reinstall, as now there is a large possibility the causes are some local problems with my installation.

I'm asking because some apps seem to have problems when using the Rik-theme, and be OK with the traditional GNUstep theme, but I think I just  dowloaded the source for the Rik-theme and just installed it. (I understand now this must be even more horrible to a real FreeBSD-user than mixing ports and packages)

With Rik, Terminal.app for instance, displays the menu on top, but opens no window, with the following displays:

address@hidden ~]$ openapp Terminal
2017-11-08 04:14:46.391 Terminal[1388:100275] styleoffsets ... guessing offsets

When closing with the Quit option from the menu, I get a segmentation fault.
 
With the GNUstep theme, Terminal.app opens normally, and the displays after the start are:

address@hidden ~]$ openapp Terminal

Thanks,

Edwin.

It’s worth noting that, while this may work, it is *strongly* discouraged on modern FreeBSD.  Ideally, you should be able to simply use the packaged versions (pkg ins gnustep-app).  If you do need to compile from source (e.g. if you need some custom options) then the recommended way to do so is to install Poudriere and use it to build a package set.
