[SOLVED] MX-16 issue: "Clawsker" has no starter icon

#1 Postby MX-16_fan » Mon Apr 24, 2017 3:48 pm

Clawsker (http://www.claws-mail.org/clawsker.php - package name: "clawsker") is an application that allows you to change Claws Mail's hidden preferences. While it is a GUI app, it lacks a starter button in MX-16 after installation. Greetings, Joe

I'd say it's a Debian problem instead of just an MX-16 issue--it doesn't install any desktop file or icon, using instead the old, deprecated menu system. One workaround that the user can use is to create a desktop file with the menu editor.

The version in Stretch does incorporate the the fixes, including a desktop file; let's see if it can be backported to our test repo.

OK, the fix came from clawsker's source, not from anything that the Debian maintainer did. The 1.0.1 version in upstream Debian is already been surpassed by Clawsker 1.1.0, so I packaged that version: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxE7w ... mdEX1NjbXc

Very cool, thank you.

* Are you putting this into the Test Repo?
* Can I mark this thread as "solved"?


Greetings, Joe

Yes, 1.1.0 is in the testing repo, and it has a working menu entry and icon on my system. Let us know how it's working for you!

Seems to work fine. I'll mark this "SOLVED". Thanks ever so much to Stevo for packaging the new version for the MX Test Repo – you're really great!

Greetings, and have a nice weekend, Joe
