gaim-guification cannot enable in gaim
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
The plugin did not work with Gaim 2.0.0-017 beta 4, the plugin cannot be
activate, plugin details show error:
Error: You are using gtk-gaim, but this plugin require gtk. Check the plugin for
install gaim-guifications plugin from Fedora Extra, run gaim and go to plugin menu
Same here with gaim-guifications.i386.2.13-0.3.beta3.fc6
This is because stock FC6 included Gaim beta3, but VERY shortly after that they
pushed out Gaim beta 4. there is a beta4 of gaim-guifications that works with
Gaim 2.0beta4 that is available from http://gaim.guifications.org/trac/downloads
But wich rpm should be taken? There are only rpms for the outdated versions 1 -
3 of fedora core.
*** Bug 214734 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
So when can we expect to see an Extras package of the beta4 compatible
Guifications? Can the gaim-guifications src.rpm be rebuilt with the spec file
from the beta3 Extras package?
I have this problem on x86_64 as well, so if someone can change Platform to All,
that would be more accurate. I tried, but it would not let me.
i thought i'd have a go at building this. (there's a src.rpm on the page linked
in comment 2 under "Guifications2 Archive")
rpmbuild --rebuild gave two (apparently conflicting) dependency messages about
i did a yum install gaim-devel and that left me with just the error "gaim-devel
< 1:3 is needed..." .. i don't even know what "1:3" means there. still,
--nodeps did the trick.
you get a similar message when you try to install the resulting rpm. so you
can't use yum - you have to rpm -Uvh --nodeps instead.
i hope that's enough information so that someone can:
a) make a new src.rpm that doesn't give those errors?
b) make a beta4 rpm for extras.
BTW you also get the same error for the nautilus integration plugin and a
similar-ish one for the two 'gnt' plugins but i haven't looked into solving them.
annoyingly, as soon as you install that rpm the nice new yumupdatesd pops up
telling you to 'upgrade' to the other version. :-(
also, it's possible this version doesn't work completely. i've tried installing
a new guifications theme and it copied the files but the new theme doesn't show
up on the theme list.
Created attachment 142743 [details]
diff against beta3 srpm to bump to beta5 srpm
I've rebuilt the srpm from extras with the newest version (beta5) from #2.
Seems to work.

Applied, slighty modified and enhanced. Thx for your help.
Build finished, will get out with the next push -- takes normally 0-48 hours to
show up in the repos.
Tom, you are in the initial CClist according to owners.list, but not CCed to
this bug, thus I added you just FYI.
I orphaned the package officially now. New maintainer wanted.
yes, I just install it from the repository and it works now.
Thanks for the help!
