No, not a masquerade party, but a Tasque’rade party! After hanging out with Jorge Castro and Joe Brockmeier last weekend at Penguicon, I was beat up with Gnome quite a bit. Being the groovy KDE dude that I am, I hung around and listened to their Gnome speak, and even sat in on Joe’s openSUSE talk. During Joe’s talk he introduced a great application called Tasque for the Gnome desktop. After showing some interest in this application, Jorge asked me to package Tasque for all of you. Well since Jorge fed me a lot of beer last weekend, I went ahead and did just that. As of right now, I built 2 packages, one for Hardy of course and the other for Gutsy.
If you are using Hardy and want to give Tasque a look over, then add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tasque-packagers/ubuntu hardy main
If you are using Gutsy, then add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tasque-packagers/ubuntu gutsy main
EDIT: I have had 2 people now tell me that Tasque gives an error that has something to do with evolution-sharp missing. I don’t have that issue, so if you can narrow it down, I would appreciate it. I am the furthest thing from a Gnome dev imaginable. Thanks!
