Sorry, but peek
are niche apps. You wont find them in Debian, Fedora nor Arch. And there are other ways creating an animated gif.
There is an ebuild for peek
in the main portage tree. If it fails the OP should file a bug or ask where appropriate.
Beside that, there are alternative ways of installation described on github: https://github.com/phw/peek
Compiling from source works like a charm. You have to install the dependencies first. If something is missing, the compiler will complain. I had to install dev-lang/vala
. The last one is optional and needed only in order to generate the manpages.
Code: Select all
$ git clone https://github.com/phw/peek.git
$ mkdir peek/build
$ cd peek/build
$ cmake -DVALA_EXECUTABLE:NAMES=valac-0.36 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
Note, you have to define the vala-compiler name depending on what you have installed. Hint: valac TAB TAB
You can run it directly from the build directory then:
Works without any issues here even with libav
Or install it system wide as suggested in the README as well:
But compiling and installing it this way is absolutely not necessary! There is an updated ebuild
in the frabjous
overlay which removes the dependency on ffmpeg
and replaces it correctly with the virtual. It compiles smoothly. You can install it with Portage from the overlay or via a local overlay.
The installation of gifine
is described in detail in the README: https://github.com/leafo/gifine
. But it requires a lot of crap to install as deps so I would rather avoid it. Compiz? Just for creating a gif? Serious?
Just don't be lazy and afraid of getting your hands dirty
