Description of problem:
If you look at the file list for the jasper rpm it contains the following:
HOWEVER, if you compile jasper yourself you get the following in /usr/bin:
If you try to run a program that accesses jasper, it WILL NOT WORK. For instance, the kopete included in KDE 3.5 cannot find jasper and will not allow you to view webcams. If you compile jasper yourself however, everything works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
FYI, jasper was renamed to jaspertool because one of the tomcat rpms already
I'll look into where the code hard-codes calls to (/usr/bin/)jasper.
And, we'll try to determine why /usr/bin/jiv wasn't included.
Other than kopete, do you have any other examples of application errors/failures
related to this?
I ask, because it appears kopete simply looks for the jasper binary when using
the yahoo chat protocol:
$ grep -r jasper
kopete/protocols/yahoo/yahoocontact.cpp: if (
image conversion program not found.\njasper is required to render the Yahoo
webcam images.\nPlease go to %1").arg( "http://www.ece.uvic.ca/~mdadams/jasper/")
kopete/protocols/yahoo/kyahoo.cpp: p << "jasper";
kopete/protocols/yahoo/kyahoo.cpp: kdDebug(14181) << "
jasper exited with status " << p.exitStatus() << " " << who << endl;
So we're stuck on the jasper end of things. Looks like kdenetwork might need
Good news, looks like FC4's tomcat5-jasper pkg now provides:
so, we can go back to /usr/bin/jasper. Problem averted.
Thanks for the report, fixed in jasper-1.701.0-9

Thank you VERY much. It's great to see when you discover a bug that you can
