Description Chris Davies 2002-05-25 12:54:09 UTC

attached is a new Ebuild for the latest xstroke gesture recognition system,
which can be found at:

Xstroke can be configured as a graffiti type handwriting recognition system for
X (the default alphabet it installs in /etc/xstroke defines this behaviour) or
as a gesture recogniser to launch applications. Also attached is a patch to
bypass the dodgy Imakefiles found in the original package and just use some
correctly generated makefiles instead.

If accepted, I suggest it be filed in x11-misc/xstroke, this package depends
solely on Xfree (4.1.0 and above).

Comment 3 Ryan Phillips (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-27 18:24:39 UTC
Chris, could you add the proper headers to the ebuild, and the LICENSE variable
to the ebuild?

Comment 4 Chris Davies 2002-05-27 18:31:30 UTC
Erm.. I would if I knew where this stuff was documented. I build this from the
docs at

Is this out of date, and if so, where is the new document?
Comment 5 Ryan Phillips (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-27 18:35:08 UTC
check /usr/portage/skel.ChangeLog skel.ebuild and header.txt

Comment 7 Ryan Phillips (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-27 19:18:51 UTC
very nice....
one slight bug though... The executable should be installed to /usr/bin

Comment 8 Chris Davies 2002-05-27 21:31:43 UTC
OK, here is a version that installs in /usr/bin

Thanks for your patience, and accept my apologies for not reading the docs first :)
