if there is a gnome based application in synaptic does it mean it is available and will work in bodhi/moksha?

 

not sure it was there in bodhi 3 but a search for evolution and it was there.  thanks





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

When you install via synatpic or apt-get, deb files 'should' pull in all required libs(libraries) and any other files. You can use qt based applications too. Just realize you will pull in a whole batch of other things, if you haven't installed something already that requires the the extra files to run. By all means go ahead and select the app you want. See how many extra files are pulled in when you choose it.

Thanks Birdmun.  it seems like in the past i was told that certain gnome based stuff won't work or you really have to go under the hood and tweak bigtime to get something to run.

Some of my info could most definitely be wrong. Unless your concern is storage space, I would go ahead and try installing software from synaptic. If it doesn't work you can always look/ask for help. I am sure it would be preferred if you try to find the answer on the interweb yourself, first.
