Description Denilson Sá 2007-12-06 19:00:51 UTC
Take a look at x11-wm/compiz-fusion-0.6.0 ebuild. There is this line in DEPEND:
	>=x11-themes/emerald-themes-0.5.2

However, x11-wm/emerald is not pulled by compiz-fusion nor by x11-themes/emerald-themes. Why would the user install emerald-themes but not emerald itself? Is there any real need to install emerald-themes but not emerald, as part of compiz-fusion meta-ebuild?


[now some slightly off-topic questions]
In past, when we had beryl, users could chose among emerald, heliodor and aquamarine. Now I see the last two are not available on portage, so I guess they are unsupported/deprecated, but I'm not sure. Does someone have an explanation?

Why I asked this here? Because, based on the answer, we can conclude if emerald is optional or not to compiz-fusion.

Kindly read the x11-themes/emerald-themes better.

DEPEND="x11-wm/emerald"

Hum... yeah, true. Sorry. But let me explain why this happened. I had beryl previously installed here, as well as emerald{,-themes}-0.2.1. Then I've added all compiz-fusion-related packages to package.keywords. Then I ran "emerge -av compiz-fusion". Portage showed me it was going to emerge x11-themes/emerald-themes-0.5.2, but showed nothing about x11-themes/emerald. Thus, I thought it was not a dependency.

I don't know if emerald-0.2.1 is compatible with compiz-fusion. But, if compiz-fusion asks specifically for emerald-themes-0.5.2, then I think either compiz-fusion ebuild or emerald-themes ebuild should depend on >=x11-wm/emerald-0.5.2.


On the other hand, although emerald is nice, it is not a dependency for compiz-fusion, since gtk-window-decorator is already shipped with x11-wm/compiz package.


So I suggest to either remove the dependency on emerald-themes from compiz-fusion ebuild or add a versioned emerald to emerald-themes DEPEND.

We don't care about ebuilds removed from the tree, sorry.

Sorry? emerald was not removed from the tree. And I'm talking about both emerald and compiz{,-fusion}, which are on the tree now.

Well, whenever <=emerald-0.2.1 gets removed, then it wouldn't make any difference.
