[RFE] lesspipe gpg support and custom format support
Last modified: 2015-08-02 19:58:00 EDT
I see in fedora 18 /bin/lesspipe.sh but /etc/profile.d/less.sh and less.csh expect it to be in /usr/bin/ instead.
hmm, excuse me, that's not the problem. It seems lesspipe is just not working like on a debian based distro. There is a ~/.lessfilter imported to support user-defined file formats. I just wanted to be able to read gpg encrypted text files.
So please consider this a RFE to add gpg support and user-defined formats through ~/.lessfilter

patch for support of ~/.lessfilter
This seems to be a valid and nice improvement to me. I'll have a look at it.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
GPG support and ~/.lessfilter.sh support were added in rawhide by scm-commit ( http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/scm-commits/Week-of-Mon-20130408/997688.html ). I eventually do plan to add these patches to f18 in next cumulative release.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The bug was fixed in Fedora 19.
