I took the last 0.9.0 debian folder for that plugin, put it in its own subfolder, and ran "uscan" in that folder. Apparently that gets the latest official XFCE 0.10.0 tar.bz2 source file from somewhere, based on what the debian/watch file has in it, and at least that tarball has the configure file, etc. in it, so I didn't have to mess with the github stuff. It makes an orig tarball symlink to the new tarball, but I just delete that and rename the new tarball.timkb4cq wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:10 pmGo ahead & take it.
These plugins are tedious. The github doesn't have configure files built - you have to run ./autogen.sh (no --autoreconf doesn't work) and doing it in rules doesn't always let the compile finish. You have to have all the dependencies installed for autogen.sh to work properly and between the last gtk2 version & the new gtk3 ones, of course those have changed...
I'm getting the deps right, running ./autogen.sh, then repacking the source tarball. Apparently the Xfce4 team did that for the release bundle packages because they have the configure & Make files that aren't in git.
But yes, they are pretty tedious, even with that. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to add them to the OBS repos, and I have to make separate stretch and buster versions for a lot of them, I think.
