Description tannhaus 2006-01-02 03:23:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051202 Fedora/1.5-0.fc4 Firefox/1.5

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):

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-01-31 10:17:46 EST
FYI, jasper was renamed to jaspertool because one of the tomcat rpms already
provides /usr/bin/jasper.

I'll look into where the code hard-codes calls to (/usr/bin/)jasper.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-01-31 10:18:14 EST
And, we'll try to determine why /usr/bin/jiv wasn't included.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-01-31 10:35:33 EST
Other than kopete, do you have any other examples of application errors/failures
related to this?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-01-31 10:39:05 EST
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 (
!KStandardDirs::findExe("jasper") )
kopete/protocols/yahoo/yahoocontact.cpp:                        i18n("Jasper
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
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2006-01-31 10:43:39 EST
Good news, looks like FC4's tomcat5-jasper pkg now provides:
so, we can go back to /usr/bin/jasper.  Problem averted.
