(Solved) Debian tint2 update issue breaks VSIDO tint2
« on: June 04, 2014, 01:28:37 AM »
Solved - The patches are now a part of debians tint2 package

The keeper of the tint2 debian package has made an update to the code that breaks our version.  This is from the debian changelog
Code: [Select]
tint2 (0.11+svn20121014-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Reintroduce tint2conf (Closes: #720200)
  * Add patch fixing argv evaluation (Closes: #716390)
  * Add patch fixing incorrect function declaration (Closes: #748171)
  * Bump Debian Standards Version to 3.9.5

None of this makes any sense because the tint2 code has not changed since October of 2012

I have put a permanent hold on the ISO builds for tint2 that should carry over onto new installs (the hold). You can stop this from happening by putting the same hold on tint2 this way


sudo apt-mark hold tint2

I have corrected this by implementing the correct code in the ISO builds

For anyone running VSIDO and you do an up/dist-upgrade and not having a hold on tint2, you will no longer see the bottom or main tint2 panel

To correct this simply run this How To again

I have the x32 and x64 debs with this code attached.  If you have run the update and the tint2 panel is gone, download your architect version and install it again.

I have also sent an email to the debian tint2 package maintainer asking for the patches to be included in his build so we would never have to worry about it again (we can always ask!)

Just got this in an email

I just uploaded 0.11+svn20121014-3 (with these patches applied) to unstable - Sebastian

These patches are a part maintained by debian tint2 package now...

It does pay to ask! 

It now makes the How To obsolete... :D

The new tint2 update came through tonight with all patches applied...

The one app I ever needed a repo for is now in the hands of debian!

This makes me smile...
