Description Todd 2014-03-25 00:35:54 UTC
May we please have a Clipit for EPEL?

The following does rebuild:

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

Many thanks, -T

Well, almost:

/root/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/clipit-1.4.2-5.fc20.x86_64/etc/xdg/autostart/clipit-startup.desktop: 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 "/root/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/clipit-1.4.2-5.fc20.x86_64/etc/xdg/autostart/clipit-startup.desktop": Failed to validate the created desktop file

Comment 2 Nikos Roussos 2014-03-26 12:55:46 UTC
Did you try to rebuild for epel6 to get this error or epel5? MATE seems to be an accepted keyword by the spec: http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/apb.html

I don't know if it deserves the effort, since the project seems abandoned, but if the epel build doesn't nee much effort then I'll give it a try.

Hi Nikos,

Tom over on the Scientific Linux mail list wrote me this:


It builds OK with these changes (I removed appdata.xml because it's
only useful on F20):

[th@localhost ~]$ diff clipit.spec ./rpmbuild/SPECS/clipit.spec
< # clipit doesn't autostart in MATE
< # Fixed upstream but not yet merged
< Source1: %{name}.appdata.xml
< Patch0:        %{name}-%{version}-mate.patch
< %patch0 -p1 -b .orig
< install -m 644 %{SOURCE1}
< %{_datarootdir}/appdata/%{name}.appdata.xml

[th@localhost ~]$ diff clipit-startup.desktop.in
< OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;LXDE;Unity;
> OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;

I tried "Parcelllite".  It killed my ability to copy and paste images.   :'(

Any sigh of a port for this one yet?

Comment 5 Nikos Roussos 2014-04-28 12:32:51 UTC

I'll try the patch for EPEL and I'll push it to repos.

Installed clipit in Scientific Linux 6.5, 64 bit and I am able to copy images with Gimp and Firefox, then exit all programs, start Thunderbird and Libre Office and successfully paste images. Yippee! Thank you!!!
