Reddit: Can anyone sling me a libpulsecommon-8.0.so rpm? Issue with i3wm

Wednesday 24th of August 2016 02:04:51 AM

Had to fresh install my Slackware system with i3. I've installed all stated dependencies for i3status and i3, but i3status/i3bar is just not working. When I try to run it from terminal it tells me I'm missing libraries, associated with pulseaudio?? I don't know why that would be.

Anyways, I've been downloading them one-by-one but I can't find libpulsecommon-8.0.

Thanks for any help

  • What makes a great Open Source project?
    Recently the Document Foundation has published its annual report for the year 2015. You can download it as a pdf by following this link, and you can now even purchase a paper copy of the report. This publication gives me the opportunity to talk a bit about what I think makes a great FOSS project and what I understand may be a great community. If it is possible to see this topic as something many people already went over and over again, think again: Free & Open Source Software is seen as having kept and even increased its momentum these past few years, with many innovative companies developing and distributing software licensed under a Free & Open Source license from the very beginning. This trend indicates two important points: FOSS is no longer something you can automagically use as a nice tag slapped on a commodity software; and FOSS projects cannot really be treated as afterthoughts or “nice-to-haves”. Gone are the days where many vendors could claim to be sympathetic and even supportive to FOSS but only insofar as their double-digits forecasted new software solution would not be affected by a cumbersome “community of developers”. Innovation relies on, starts with, runs thanks to FOSS technologies and practices. One question is to wonder what comes next. Another one is to wonder why Open Source is still seen as a complex maze of concepts and practices by so many in the IT industry. This post will try to address one major difficulty of FOSS: why do some projects fail while others succeed.
