Enable Comic support in Evince
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem: Comic support hasn't been enabled in Evince. This
doesn't require any additional Build Requirements to enable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): evince-0.5.1-3
I'll attach a patch for the spec file, which will enable this feature. In
addition, I also remove some Build Requirements that aren't needed since they
are pulled in by other packages.
Duplicate BuildRequires: scrollkeeper (by nautilus), gtk2-devel (by
libgnomeprintui22-devel), libglade2-devel (by libgnomeui-devel),
gnome-vfs2-devel (by libgnomeui-devel)

Updated patch to enable comic support
Here's an updated patch.
Any chance of getting this applied before FC6?
I filed an upstream bug about it being enabled by default as well:
Is there any reason this can't just be enabled in Fedora before upstream decides
to enable it themselves? I see that epiphany-extensions now seems to ship
adblock which is (was?) disabled upstream..
Agreed. This should be something we can enable in the Fedora package without
being concerned about upstream's failure to enable it by default.
Build actually fails from stock:
I'll cook up a patch and push it upstream.
Problem already fixed upstream, rawhide packages available at:
Not sure it's worth doing a F-7 update, let me know.
Well, I'd prefer not having to wrestle with Comix and an F7 update would be good
to me. I don't know how useful this is to other people though.
evince-0.8.0-6.fc7 has been request for a push to updates-testing. Let me know
how it pans out.
evince-0.8.0-6.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Works perfectly, even the thumbnailing in nautilus, thanks!
