There are some issues with the modified included graphics library that
Viewnior uses, and Debian/Ubuntu packaging policy.  Its author does not
want it included linking to the system version of library...

So what we originally thought was a technical issue (get it packaged and
into Debian, sync to Ubuntu) has turned into a much more complicated
packaging/policy/desires-of-authors issue.  I do not know if this will
all get resolved well in time for 12.04.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Viewnior?

Yet another issue is, the underlying lib viewnior use, GtkImageView only
has gtk2 support.
It's a nice little library providing a lightweight and really fast
gtk-based image viewer UI component.
It's a pity that no gtk3 porting was done so far.
Sooner or later we need to migrate to gtk3. If this issue cannot be
resolved at the moment. :-(

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Viewnior?

The gtkimageview with GTK3 patch is in the SVN (and is done because of
Evolution mail client). However, the author didn't release it.

And, if we can accept the author's version of Viewnior, it also states
for GTK3 support.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Viewnior packaging, and bug #889414

2011-11-13 Thread 魏銘廷
I feel pretty sorry that I almost abandoned the ITP...

If someone wants to take on this, I will put this into RFP soon.

Thanks,

 Do you contact the person who owns the ITP of Viewnior ? Maybe he is
 still working on it ?


 I have now ... I wanted to make sure it wasn't going to be really hard
 to package, before I started going public :)

 See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WorkItemsHowto


 Great, thanks.  It's easy, when you know how!

 On bugs, I seem to have come up with a usable fix for bug #889414 .
 A change to the rc.xml in lubuntu-default-settings.  Do I have
 commit rights to the git or bzr tree for that, or should I propose
 a merge to a branch, or just do it the traditional way and upload a
 debdiff?


 Thanks, you can push the change directly to the LP branch, I'll check
 it and upload it when I will find time to test it. There is probably

 more changes to do, to upgrade configuration file to openbox 3.5 format :(


 OK, will do.  Do we need a work item related to the openbox 3.4 - 3.5
 transition, so we don't forget?
