Description Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-15 09:49:50 UTC
The file pulse.png required by the game glines is missing in the tarball. A workaround is to extract this file from gnome-games-2.6.2.tar.gz and copy it to /usr/share/pixmaps/glines.
Comment 1 Joe McCann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-15 11:55:21 UTC
This file has become part of the gnome-games-extra-data package(new for the 2.8 branch). This package contains extra artwork for various games that is not necessarily required.

qpkg -l gnome-games-extra-data |grep pulse
Comment 2 Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-15 12:00:54 UTC
Hm... but if you run glines, it would complain about the missing file and won't even start.
Comment 3 Joe McCann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-15 12:18:29 UTC
it runs fine here without the file, can you provide an exact error message?
Comment 4 Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-15 12:29:58 UTC
If I delete this file, I get an error dialog box, which says:

Five or More could not find image file:

Please chech Five or More is installed correctly

After pressing ok, the program terminates wich error code 1.

I think, it's because the pulse theme was selected before upgrading to Gnome 2.8 and now has been removed. But If you can't start the program, you can't change the theme, so this isn't very nice. Maybe a warning should be placed in the gnome-games ebuild that some themes were exported to another ebuild?

BTW, I see another strange effect in this game: menus, buttons and other widgets have no border (unlike other gnome apps). Is it supposed to be that way?
Comment 5 Joe McCann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-15 13:03:12 UTC
ah ok, I hadn't selected that theme so I didn't run into the problem. This is probably something that needs to be reported upstream, it should default to an available theme if the one requested isn't available.
Comment 6 Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-15 15:37:55 UTC
I posted this bug in the Gnome bugzilla:

Thanks, it is much appreciated that you are taking the time to track this.
Comment 8 Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-16 05:12:20 UTC
A Gnome dev fixed this in CVS. Now THAT was fast! :-)
Comment 9 Wendall Cada 2004-11-16 18:25:20 UTC
Emerging gnome-extra/gnome-games-extra-data-2.8.0 resolves the issue as well.

Comment 10 Vlad Berditchevskiy 2004-11-16 18:29:53 UTC
I'd suggest to place an ewarn to the gnome-games ebuild, which states that most themes were moved to gnome-games-extra-data. At least until a new tarball is available from upstream.
Comment 11 Joe McCann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-17 02:19:53 UTC
thanks again for checking this. Going to mark resloved as upstream. A notice should be put into gnome-games about theme moving and the new local useflag. 

There will be another gnome-games release within the next few weeks, but here is the patch to fix this issue if anybody else on the gnome team thinks its worth adding in now.
Comment 12 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-21 09:36:36 UTC
added 2.8.1-r1 with the patch, please test.
