Description Vinzenz Vietzke 2012-07-24 14:05:09 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.
Comment 1 Nikos Roussos 2012-10-10 11:49:20 EDT
How to you suggest to do that, without breaking user experience for Gnome users? Afaik yum doesn't support optional dependencies.
Comment 2 Vinzenz Vietzke 2012-10-10 11:53:43 EDT
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?
Comment 5 Nikos Roussos 2012-10-10 13:56:41 EDT
Thanks. I'll test it and get back to you
Comment 6 Nikos Roussos 2012-10-13 10:21:07 EDT
Well, it seems that without nautilus-python you loose the sparkleshare file operations from right click context menu.
Comment 7 Vinzenz Vietzke 2012-10-19 19:18:49 EDT
New version of Sparkleshare is ready:

Will package it within the next days and test with Nautilus.
Comment 8 Nikos Roussos 2012-10-20 07:42:46 EDT
The newer version of sparkleshare has removed nautilus dependencies.
