Review Request: gksu - Graphical frontend to su
Last modified: 2012-10-31 07:56:30 EDT
Gtk+ frontend to su. It supports login shells and preserving environment
when acting as a su frontend. It is useful to menu items or other graphical
programs that need to ask a user's password to run another program as another
Some quick comments...
- You added 'BuildRequires: gettext-devel' 'BuildRequires: gettext' is sufficient
- I guess that all patches are coming from Debian. Am I right?
- Is rpmlint not complaining about the NEWS file?
- In this tarball is a .desktop file too. You should add it.
sorry, I have forget it to remove the NEWS-file, its an empty file
Strange, i made this error in every package, up to now, sorry!
It's a little tricky. The desktopfile tries to open a terminalemulator via
x-terminal-emulator is a setting in update-alternatives for debian and debian based distros. seems like fedora don't use this or a similar alternative to set a terminal. so this file will be needless, or?
all patches are from the gksu-debianpackage
upstream = debian package maintainer of gksu & libgksu
fixed: news file and gettext and patchcomment, split the nautlis extension in an extra subpackage
gksu-nautilus-extension.i386: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-2.0/libnautilus-gksu.a
i think this won't be a problem, or?
close bug, because there is no benefit for fedora
if you`re not agree and think this would be a good package you can reopen it. the spec and srpm will be preserved.
I have to use a program that requires gksu, I could patch the application or ask upstream to change it but it seems like too much work and I don't see why gksu can't be included in Fedora anyway. I would hope this can be re-opened as I also have another program I need to use for work that's not open source that depends on gksu.
Does anyone have a copy of the spec or src RPM? The links are dead
