Description thedatum+bz 2023-03-05 18:30:33 UTC
Description of problem:
Xpad system tray icon is missing.
Issue is with version 5.8, which is packaged for Fedora 37. Version 5.3 in Fedora 36 works fine.
Problem seems to be due to the missing dependency of libayatana-appindicator package, which Xpad switched to since version 5.7, instead of libappindicator.
Solution would be to package the libayatana-appindicator dependency.
A workaround could be to remain on Xpad version 5.3 in Fedora 37 as in Fedora 36, until libayatana-appindicator becomes available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version 5.8

How reproducible:

That unfortunate. ;( 

I don't have any time in the near term to package that up, but hopefully someone will... 

Thanks for the detailed and informative bug!

Dear Kevin!

I understand you have no time to make 5.8 work.
Please revert to 5.3 until 5.8 is properly packaged.

For anyone wanted to have a working xpad again:
mock --rebuild https://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/36/Everything/source/tree/Packages/x/xpad-5.3.0-8.fc36.src.rpm
sudo dnf install /var/lib/mock/fedora-*-x86_64/result/xpad-5.3.0-8.fc*.x86_64.rpm

FYI: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/till/xpad/packages/ contains a working xpad using the new ayatana libraries as an alternative to comment:2

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2023-10-02 23:47:11 UTC
Do you have any plans to submit the ayatana libs for review?
