Inkscape should not require deprecated GnomeVFS
Last modified: 2012-08-16 18:05:18 EDT
Description of problem:
GnomeVFS has been deprecated for 3 years. Inkscape still requires gnome-vfs2. Moreover, this is required for HAL removal:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qR inkscape | grep vfs
libgnomevfs-2.so.0 is required by inkscape
To drop the dependency, I suppose it should be sufficient to remove 2 lines from the .spec files:
34 BuildRequires: gnome-vfs2-devel >= 2.0
163 --with-gnome-vfs \
Sorry for the delay.
I'm not sure if this is a wise thing to do -- wouldn't we loose functionality here if Inkscape was not carried over to gvfs? Or is there no porting needed?
Removed and rebuild triggered, so I don't delay this any more.
I'd still like the above question to be answered.
unfortunately you are right, after disabling GNOME-VFS support it is no longer possible to open remote files. It looks like that Inkscape was not ported to GVFS.
I can open a bug report at Inkscape's Launchpad and link it here for reference, while leaving this bug report open.
In the meanwhile probably it's better to re-enable the GNOME-VFS support.
What do you think?
Well, let us see what the users think -- keeping this open for a while and see if anyone complains for rawhide.
Ok, in the meantime I have asked upstream to port from GnomeVFS to GIO, see the linked Launchpad bug.
Would this affect the open clipart import functionality? Or are those downloaded to /tmp by some other means and opened locally from /tmp?

"Import from Open Clip Art Library" disappeared from File menu in my inkscape build without GnomeVFS, so this functionality seems to be affected.
@Nicola in the words of Darth Vader, "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" :(
gnome-vfs enabled back; I'll take a look at what needs to be done to carry it over to gvfs.
Phew thank you!!! You're the best!
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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:
