MX-17 package update request: Xfburn

#1 Post by MX-16_fan » Fri Jul 27, 2018 11:02 am

I have been advised to use Xfburn instead of Brasero (https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 08#p455808).

Unfortunately using Xfburn's 0.5.4 version that ships with MX-17 (from Debian) is extremely difficult for me: Xfburn's window is about twice as wide as my acual screen, and the window can't be rescaled. This is the only application that has shown this kind of behaviour so far.

The most current stable version of Xfburn seems to be 0.5.5. According to this changelog: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfburn/0.5.5-1, "some fixes for the desktop file" have been implemented there, so maybe that fixes the problem.

I see that 0.5.5 is available in Debian Sid (https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/xfce/xfburn). Could you possibly provide it in the MX Test Repo?


Greetings, and thanks so much in advance for looking into this, Joe

Might it be better to try to fix the re-sizing problem first; it's possible it may still happen with the updated version?

Xfburn has never exhibited that behaviour here when testing, although on my everyday machine I use K3B.

Seems to be a translation-string related issue with to long translated / unwrapped strings.

Thanks for the workaround. With that I get a normal width.

Is that an error in the 0.5.4 source code?

I would flag it a an translation code error, as the translation string missing line feeds for line wrappings.
So in this sense as the translation strings are part of the souce code package you can regard it as a source code "bug" ;)

That's something which we should be able to fix in a patch for the affected translation file if necessary. I'll backport 5.5 to see if they've fixed it, and if not, we can work to fix the string in the localization source file...though upstream should also be notified of the bug. Is it in the "de" locale?

I can't see any fix Debian added for the 0.5.5 version, no Debian bug reports for the issue: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgrepo ... t=unstable and there's no change at all in the de translation source file between 0.5.4 and 0.5.5. I can see some sections where it looks like the de translation strings are missing the returns, so I'll try and fix those.

Hmmm...I did a bigger set of changes.

Does this version fix it?
