App bundler script for Xboard OSX v3


Hello all,

I apologize if this sent before.  To me, it didn’t look like it did.

Anyway I did a little thinking and managed to git rid of the gtk related files (save the theme) by A) copying a
little more from the system install of gtk and B) configuring the various settings files with the sed and
echo commands in the script.  This way should look a lot better, and makes me less nervous of having files not
related to xboard directly.

Also to further remove extra clutter, I decided to have the script generate the info.command and
man.command launching scripts. This also stops the os from thinking they were downloaded whenever I try
to open them right after building the bundle. (One less dialog box in my life is a good thing :-) )

Regards,
Josh Pettus

App bundler script for Xboard OSX

Hello all,

I finally managed to boil my process down to a simple shell script.  I took the liberty of putting it, and all
the supporting files, (including icons, xboard.conf, mans, gtk configs and a osx style gtk2 theme).  In
the included readme file, I describe how to setup macports properly to build xboard and run the script.  All
you have to do after is unzip the folder into a xboard source package and, after compiling the binary, run
the script.

Surely all this can be done within the makefiles itself, so someone with more knowledge in this department
can feel free to give it a try.

A few things though with the current make/configure file.  Right now it doesn’t properly link the
gtkmacintegration library.  I have to keep putting it in LDFLAGS in the make file before building.  Also if
someone could add the -headerpad_max_install_names flag, to the OSX gtk build process, that would be
very handy as it is always necessary to be able to relink the libraries.

————
And finally there are a couple of comments made by HGM that haven’t made it into any branch that are needed.

First in args.h there is some code that is necessary to keep the user.conf file portable with its directories:

args.h 

------
    case ArgFilename:
      if(*(char**)ad->argLoc == NULL) break; // just in case
      { char buf[MSG_SIZ];
        snprintf(buf, MSG_SIZ, "%s", *(char**)ad->argLoc);
#ifdef __APPLE__
        if(strstr(buf, DATADIR) == buf)

Re: question

Sorry, I don't know anything about interoperating with Fritz. Copying
the group in case anyone else has advice for you.

Which web page is dead? We should take out the link, or update it if
anyone knows where it should go now.

Dear list 

I am Nalin a student from kerala india. i am going to propose a project that develop GTK3 UI for XBoard to Portland State University(PSU). Following are the tasks that i plan to deliver.

1 - Port XBoard-GTK to GTK3 (Considering bugs in XBoard-GTK2)
2 - Made XBoard accessible for visually impaired.
3 - Make Fonts (pieces) movable using keyboard(arrow keys).
4 - Small finishing touches such as menu items for changing the board to High contrast,etc

Please let me know what are the parts that are not implemented in GTK version of XBoard. and also let me know suggestion for further improvement.

GTK Developer needed - GSOC 2014 regarding

I am Nalin from kerala/india. I understand that XBoard needs a Gtk developer. i am interested to know how much works remaining. is it enough for a GSOC project(three month duration).  and also it seems that XBoard Gtk demands for some more accessibility features. What i have noticed is that there is no navigation of pieces using arrow keys and also it does not help a visually challenged person to know current position of pieces in the board. it is also noted that ORCA(Screen Reader) does not right away announce the movement played by the opponent.
