xfce-utils should have RPM dependancy on xterm
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
The xfce-utils RPM should require the installation of xterm so that
/usr/bin/xfterm4 can run with its default settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $TERMCMD not exported
2. if xterm is installed run: rpm -e xterm
3. yum install xfce-utils
/usr/bin/xfterm4: line 76: exec: xterm: not found
Opening of an X terminal in Xfce
This can present a problem if the user is only familiar with the GUI
and does not see any error messages produced when clicking the
'terminal' icon on the Xfce Panel.
1. The /usr/bin/xfterm4 script can be edited (line 6, TERMCMD=xterm)
2. The user's $TERMCMD shell environment variable can be set to
reflect an installed terminal application.
3. yum install xterm
i have extended the xfterm4 so that it does not require xterm. The shell
script will look for all available xterm, konsole or gnome-console.
It's fixed in 4.0.6-3
