libreoffice-bin-188.8.131.52.ebuild with mate use flag
Description jorgicio 2016-07-29 02:36:48 UTC
Hi! When I got the upgrade to version 184.108.40.206 of Libreoffice-bin, it fallbacks to a different UI rather than the GTK+2 one. I'm using MATE 1.14 with GTK+2 support. I'll attach the belonging files then. Reproducible: Always

A workaround: built it with USE="gnome" enabled (despite not using GNOME), although previous versions didn't need it and it built with GTK+2 support as well.

People were complaining about the "unnecessary GTK+2 depdendency"... See bug 543328.

I'm also using Mate desktop and facing the problem of libreoffice-bin not using the GTK+2 UI. Although enabling the "gnome" use flags solves the problem it pulls a lot of unneeded dependencies (more than 90 new packages in my case). Almost all of these dependencies are being pulled by gnome-extra/evolution-data-server so I modified the ebuild adding a "mate" use flag which gets the gnome enabled delta file and avoid the gnome-extra/evolution-data-server dependency. So far I haven't noticed any problem for not having the evolution-data-serer package.

Created attachment 442426 [details] libreoffice-bin-18.104.22.168.ebuild with mate use flag I added the modified ebuild if anyone wants to get the gtk+2 UI without the gnome dependencies.

Well, I'm now trying MATE 1.14 with GTK+3. Tried libreoffice-bin, and it still uses a GTK+ 2.0 interface instead of GTK+-3.0. At least, put a gtk3-related support when available.
