Unnecessary Natilus dependencies
Last modified: 2012-10-31 09:23:57 EDT
I'd like to use Sparkleshare with XFCE but dependecies force me to install Nautilus, which pulls a lot of unnecessary/unwanted stuff. It would be good to have the Nautilus dependecies optional.
How to you suggest to do that, without breaking user experience for Gnome users? Afaik yum doesn't support optional dependencies.
On Gnome, Nautilus is already installed. So if Gnome users install Sparkleshare, they won't notice a difference.
I built Sparkleshare with your SPEC but left out all Nautilus stuff. It runs flawless on my F17-x86_64 with Xfce: http://pastebin.com/MgEiAbbV
But the dependency is not nautilus explicitly, but nautilus python binndings in order for sparkleshare to integrate with nautilous.

I just tried my non-nautilus package inside a f17-gnome vm and everything went well. Maybe you can test it out, too?
Thanks. I'll test it and get back to you
Well, it seems that without nautilus-python you loose the sparkleshare file operations from right click context menu.
New version of Sparkleshare is ready:
Will package it within the next days and test with Nautilus.
