I try to create the new packages relative to Xfce pre10.
- I created a local mirror from Mageia 2 cauldron ).
- I use the tools of mageia (rpmbuild and iurt).
- I add the new packages in the mirror, according to their creation,
by updating the mirror with the gendistrib tool.
This works very well for the packages (according to the order indicated by Xfce):
libxfce4util, xfconf, libxfce4ui, garcon, exo, xfce4-panel.
But for thunar I have a fatal error:
thunar-settings.desktop: error: (will be fatal in the future): value
"FileManager" in key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" requires another
category to be present among the following categories: System;FileTools
Error on file "/home/georges/rpm/BUILDROOT/thunar-1.3.1-3.mga2.x86_64/usr/share/
applications/thunar-settings.desktop": Failed to validate the created desktop
file error: Bad exit status from /home/georges/rpm/tmp/rpm-tmp.6MrRb6 (%install)
This is regarding Mageia's menu structure. You may try to do as it asks: edit the thunar-settings.desktop (or thunar-settings.desktop.in on the source) and add one of those categories (System or FileTools).
Of course this could be fixed in git.
Effectively, by means of the developers of Mageia, we modified:
But I think that it would be good to modify upstream.
