Hi All,

SL 6.5, 64 bit

The following does not rebuild (fc15 or fc20):

# rpmbuild --rebuild clipit-1.4.2-5.fc20.src.rpm


error: value "GNOME;XFCE;LXDE;Unity;MATE;" for key "OnlyShowIn" in group
"Desktop Entry" contains an unregistered value "MATE"; values
extending the
format should start with "X-"
Error on file

Failed to validate the created desktop file

Any way around this "MATE" error?

Many thanks,

Fedora has a significantly more recent version of RPM than Scientific
Linux 6, and many of the dependencies have significantly modified
names. That seems to be a stable package, it was in Fedora 15. Perhaps
you could rebuild the SRPM from a Fedora 15 archive site, or compare
the .spec files, to look for the changes from the older version?

Hi Nico,

You missed the "fc15" in "does not rebuild (fc15 or fc20)".
First thing I tried.  Same exact error.  RATS!

Bear in mind that EL6 is based upon Fedora 12-13 (roughly).  So you'll
need to figure out which packaging features have been changed since that
time.  But I believe this is more related to an issue inside the
clipit-startup.desktop file than an RPM .spec file issue - most likely
related to xdg-utils (Portland).

kind regards,

Hi David,

I could only get SRPMs back to FC15.

I looked inside the SRPM a clipit-startup.desktop for a
reason, but didn't not get anywhere.  Couldn't find
anything resembling "GNOME;XFCE;LXDE;Unity;MATE;" in
the "Desktop Entry" section, which was the only section.

In the mean time, I installed "Parcellite" from rpmforge
and  it is working well.

Thank you for the help,
