Description David 2011-05-01 14:17:08 UTC
In the menu file -> accuire -> geocaching the program use gcget. gcget "tools" are in the source in the tools directory. The ebuild does not install these components.

gcget has some dependencies:
dev-python/mechanize
and "ClientForm" for python (I didn't find a ebuild for this component).
Comment 1 David 2011-05-02 12:48:13 UTC
From the "ClientForm" website:

This functionality provided by this module is now part of mechanize. I don't intend to make further standalone releases of ClientForm.

So I edit the script.

It looks like this menu item now tries to use the tools located at http://geo.rkkda.com/ but as far as I can tell these are not packaged in Gentoo yet.

Probably you meant this error message I am getting now from viking-1.6.2 (File -> Acquire -> Geocaches). This seems still to be an issue, indeed.

But isn't gcget still needed, anyway? See https://github.com/viking-gps/viking/blob/master/tools/gcget-perl

gcget-perl is older by 4 years than gcget, and gcget explicitly mentions that it no longer works. Feel free to test this anyway, and if it works we can install it, but given the notices I expect it to fail.
