xfce4-xmms-plugin requires audacious?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to install the xmms plugin for xfce I noticed that the package
requires audacios instead of xmms.
Yes, that's correct. Where's the problem?
The Problem is that the plugin is unable to control audacious as you might not
expect when installing xfce4-xmms-plugin.
1. The plugin is able to control audacious. It can control both xmms and
audacious, but only installed apps will show up in the drop down. This is why I
made xmms-plugin depend on audacious.
2. I don't get the second part of the sentence. You might not expect _what_?
Where is the bug and what do you want me to fix?
Okay, I'll try it again. Sorry:
When I install xfce4-xmms-plugin I would expect that this package requires xmms
instead of audacious. Otherwise IMHO it should be renamed to something like
BTW: Controling audacious doesn't work for me. But I'll file a new bug for this
You can still install and control xmms, but I choose to make audacious the
default media player and I'm not going to revert this decision.
Renaming the package IMO is something that should be done upstream, so for now
this package will remain xfce4-xmms-plugin.
