Description Andriy 2012-08-02 09:27:56 EDT
Opening menu and sub-menus generate multiple warnings:
feh WARNING: /usr/local/share/feh/images/menubg_default.png - File does not exist

The real path to such images is

Changing in source feh-2.3/config.mk: 
PREFIX ?= /usr/local
PREFIX ?= /usr
is fixing this problem.

But I am not sure that it is a correct way.
Comment 1 Ben Boeckel 2012-11-04 21:35:45 EST
PREFIX needs to be passed during the %build step as well (there's a -DPREFIX=$(PREFIX) added to CFLAGS and the install doesn't trigger a recompile when it adds it there). I'll try to get an update out soon.
