Description Nicholas van Oudtshoorn 2011-08-26 02:37:33 UTC
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 :)]

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2011-08-26 08:26:29 UTC
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

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2011-08-26 08:35:41 UTC
might all just be noise for the internal case and trivial for the external one

Comment 3 Nicholas van Oudtshoorn 2011-08-26 08:49:31 UTC
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!

Comment 4 David Tardon 2011-08-26 08:56:58 UTC
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 :)

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2011-08-26 09:56:20 UTC
ah, re "typography extension", where possible those extensions can live in their own .src.rpms as standalone packages.

Comment 6 Nicholas van Oudtshoorn 2011-08-26 10:07:37 UTC
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!

Comment 7 David Tardon 2011-08-26 10:27:02 UTC
Created attachment 520056 [details]
add obsoletes

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.

Comment 8 Nicholas van Oudtshoorn 2011-08-26 11:37:23 UTC
vanoudt->dtardon: Done and done and pushed out to testing

Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2011-09-02 15:58:42 UTC
should be ok for >=
