libnotify-closed-reason.patch (from changeset 3005)

Description of problem:
The 'closed' signal now carries an extra parameter, and we need to apply a patch from upstream to handle that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
notification-daemon-0.3.7.90-1.svn3009.fc10.x86_64
libnotify-0.4.4-11.fc10.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import gobject
import pynotify

def closed_cb(n, reason=None):
	print "closed"

if __name__ == '__main__':
        pynotify.init ("foo")
        loop = gobject.MainLoop ()
        n = pynotify.Notification("title", "text")
        n.set_timeout (pynotify.EXPIRES_NEVER)
        n.connect ("closed", closed_cb)
        n.show()
        loop.run ()

2.Close the notification
  
Actual results:
No output

Expected results:
"closed"

This breaks system-config-printer's printer event notifications.

Let me make sure I understand that. 

Upstream changed the api between the daemon and the client-side ?

But there have not been any releases (daemon or client-side) with the new api, so how exactly does this break s-c-printer ?

Or is this a problem where Ubuntu ships api-changing patches ?

The best solution would certainly be for upstream to release new versions that have the latest api...

Unfortunately so, but apparently in order to bring it in line with the freedesktop spec.

Fedora devel currently has a notification-daemon package (0.3.7.90-1.svn3009) that uses the new API, which of course breaks because libnotify is still using the old API.

> Or is this a problem where Ubuntu ships api-changing patches ?

No, nothing to do with Ubuntu.

Or we could stick to released versions ourselves.. :-)

Reverting to notification-daemon-0.3.7 would also fix this.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-14 17:39:00 EDT
Ah, ok. In that case, why don't you go ahead and put that patch into rawhide ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-23 21:31:55 EDT
Built in rawhide now.
