Description Brad Laue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-09 12:01:22 UTC
Attached is a small modification of the gdk-pixbuf ebuild which will build 
gnome-libs only if gnome is in the user's USE variable. This allows gdk-pixbuf 
aware applications to use this library without having to install gnome as

this request comes up about once every 3 months.  believe me it is something I
want to do. I can not until our USE variable functionality is extended a little

Comment 3 Stewart (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-02-04 15:29:39 UTC
I'd like to echo the need for this optionalization. Installing Sylpheed requires GDK-Pixbuf in order to enable graphical support, which in-turn requires GNOME. I have manually modified my GDK-Pixbuf ebuild file in the interim.

Comment 6 Tisephone Skouros 2003-09-15 22:33:08 UTC
That's odd. I did searches for "gdk-pixbuf" and "pixbuf" before submitting my duplicate. Why didn't this show up?

Comment 8 Chris Paulson-Ellis 2003-12-10 14:44:39 UTC
Is there a bug against portage detailing the required functionality? If so, it should be noted as blocking this bug.

I want the gimp installed, but I don't want any gnome (or kde) libs cluttering my system.

Comment 12 Brad Laue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-15 11:40:35 UTC
Now that we have built_with_use functionality in portage we should investigate
this. A significant enough number of packages still dep on gdk-pixbuf that
trimming out gnome-1.x libraries when not needed is a good idea (such as fvwm).
Comment 13 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-15 12:33:29 UTC
If this was to be done, a patch for that has a proper switch would
need to be created first.

There are 39 packages that have it as a dep.
Comment 14 Brad Laue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-15 15:43:28 UTC
configure runs through properly with no patch, if you emerge gdk-pixbuf with
--nodeps and without gnome-libs installed, for example...
Comment 15 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-17 18:46:51 UTC
Brad: However, the configure patch is needed if :
emerge gnome-libs ; USE="-gnome" gdk-pixbuf; emerge -C gnome-libs

This is supposed to be a working case.  Ebuilds with hidden deps are evil(tm)

Feel free to pursue this if you have the time and patience. Personally, I'd
prefer to deprecate all software depending on <gtk+-2   
Comment 16 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-18 13:43:07 UTC
please re-open if you have a configure patch, otherwise, we will not do this.

Here is the patch. Testing for a tri-state ain't pretty. It works well though.
Please re-open.

Reopened as requested by allanonjl.  See also bug 127290 for an alternative suggestion.
Comment 22 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-24 07:34:42 UTC
We're not much interested in 'fixing' a few dozen obsolete packages, the one way this should be going is a tree wide effort to get rid of gtk/gnome1 apps.

The resolution to this bug is not under discussion.
Comment 23 Malte S. Stretz 2006-03-24 14:18:41 UTC
Ok, I'll try to port gscmxx (the only tool which pulls in gtk-perl on my box) to gtk2-perl.
