Description David Woodhouse 2006-10-02 11:30:42 EDT
Spec URL:
Description: The bluez-gnome package contains Bluetooth helper applets and tools for the GNOME desktop environment.

rpmlint output:
W: bluez-gnome unversioned-explicit-obsoletes bluez-pin
E: bluez-gnome obsolete-not-provided bluez-pin

These are intentional. It obsoletes all versions of bluez-pin and does not provide compatible functionality. The new bluez-utils requires bluez-gnome _instead_ of bluez-pin.

W: bluez-gnome non-conffile-in-etc /etc/xdg/autostart/bt-applet.desktop

I think this is correct. All the other files in /etc/xdg/autostart are non-config files too.
Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2006-10-02 11:43:32 EDT
Where should the bt-applet.desktop file go?

/etc/xdg/autostart seems to work for GNOME but not for KDE.
/usr/share/autostart seems to work for KDE but not for GNOME.
Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2006-10-02 15:32:21 EDT
So when KDE doesn't find it in /etc/xdg/autostart, it's buggy?
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2006-10-10 21:25:12 EDT
It should go in /usr/share/gnome/autostart (just like the autostart files for
g-p-m, nm-applet and g-v-m) as I believe you _only_ want to start it
automatically when running a GNOME session. This is a GNOME specific directory
for things that should _only_ be started when starting a GNOME session.

If you want it to run for all XDG compliant desktops (which I don't think you
want to do as it's GNOME specific) look at the specifications mentioned in
comment 2.
Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2006-10-11 02:00:12 EDT
Despite the silly name, I do want it to start in all sessions. My understanding
of the referenced specification was that I should therefore put the .desktop
file in /etc/xdg/autostart. Which didn't work for KDE -- even, iirc, when I
omitted the 'OnlyShownIn: GNOME;' line :)

I'll retest.
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2006-10-12 11:54:42 EDT
Then I'd use /etc/xdg/autostart and file a bug to get KDE fixed. 
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-10-26 14:33:00 EDT

do you know what the status of autostart compliance is in kde right now?
Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2007-01-18 16:06:30 EST
I wonder if this should be closed, based on what I see on my rawhide system:

[mclasen@localhost ~]$ rpm -q bluez-gnome
Comment 11 Jason Tibbitts 2007-01-26 12:16:50 EST
So was this package formally approved?  Currently it's still blocking FC-NEW,
and there's no indication of approval in any of the comments.
