Build libreoffice with system graphite2
Last modified: 2011-09-09 13:05:52 EDT
Description of problem:
A while back, LibreOffice switched from using graphite to using the faster/better next generation graphite2. I have recently packaged this for fedora (currently in the testing repositories], and would appreciate it if libreoffice could be built to utilise it. [And perhaps the typography extension built as well :)]
caolanm->dtardon: first off, I guess we should now mark silgraphite as a dead.package as nothing is using that version1 anymore I think.
caolanm->vanoudt: the modifications to libreoffice to use graphite 1.0.2 http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/libs-extern-sys/log/?h=libreoffice-3-4 aren't in <= 3.4.3 though they will be for later versions, so backporting required.
I'll give it a go in master first
might all just be noise for the internal case and trivial for the external one
vanoudt->all: just so you know: silgraphite-devel is still a build-time dependency for graphite2...
vanoudt->caolanm: ah! Hadn't clicked that. I forgot I had built libreoffice with graphite 0.9!
dtardon->vanoudt: Is it really necessary to build comparerenderer? Note: if you
insist on doing it (and requiring silgraphite for it), you will have to step in
as maintainer of silgraphite too :)
ah, re "typography extension", where possible those extensions can live in their own .src.rpms as standalone packages.
vanoudt->dtardon: Nope, it's not necessary! Just spotted how to disable how to build it, and have pushed a new version of graphite2 without comparerenderer (and it's dependency on silgraphite) to testing
vanoudt->caolan: Ah! :) Guess I should consider packaging it up when I get some time!
Created attachment 520056 [details]
dtardon->vanoudt: Ah, excellent! In that case we can indeed retire silgraphite and you should apply the attached patch, so silgraphite will be replaced by graphite2 on users' systems.
vanoudt->dtardon: Done and done and pushed out to testing
should be ok for >= 18.104.22.168-2
