Change xvattr to use gtk2 instead of gtk+
Last modified: 2012-08-16 18:06:45 EDT
Description of problem:
The GTK1.2 xvattr seems to be a bit aged, and the upstram is long dead. It'll be great if you can retire it from pkgdb.
What other program is available for changing Xv attributes?
At minimum, just don't build gxvattr, but keep the command line program.
Other distributions (Ubuntu, gentoo) compile gxvattr with GTK2 by just patching configure.in.

GTK2, plus scrollbars and separators
Here is a patch with the GTK2 change plus some other fixes by me, mainly with 16 textured video ports, scrollbars are needed.

The patch seems quite good.
Matthias, would you mind to add this patch to the package and get rid of the gtk+ dependencies?
There's also a gentoo patch available.
This kind of change makes a lot of sense, so I'll be more than happy to update the package. Thanks for the patch and pointers.

revised patch - just the gxvattr.c changes
A slightly revised patch, which should adjust the initial window size better (after putting everything into scrolled widgets, the window ends up a tiny size, the original patch just resizes it to a fixed percentage of the screen size).
The revised patch only contains the gxvattr.c changes, so that the gentoo patch can be applied as is.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
