Unable to add Python plugins
Last modified: 2012-09-30 14:16:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The ability to add Python plugins to gnumeric is missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Was available in build 1.11.3-1; missing in 1.11.5-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Python plugin as documented in /usr/share/gnome/help/gnumeric/C/extending-python.xml
2. Launch gnumeric
3. Click "Insert", "Function"
No new function(s) appear in list
Your new Python based function(s) appear in list
This functionality silently drops out due to missing 'BuildRequires: pygobject3-devel' in spec file.
I'll add this in the next release. Any ideas why it used to work before?
My best guess is that 1.11.3-1 built on a system, that just by coincidence, already had pygobject3-devel installed. When 1.11.5-1 built, I suspect we were not so lucky...
I noticed that I failed to report I am running the x86_64 version: gnumeric-1.11.5-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm. I confirmed that gnumeric-1.11.5-1.fc17.i686.rpm is missing the same support.
FYI: When gnumeric-1.11.3-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm built, pygobject3-devel being installed allowed the rpm to include the following files, providing the missing support:
