Description Jeff Davidson 2005-02-09 14:22:36 UTC
The redhat-artwork ebuild (understandably) does not include the xfwm Bluecurve theme available in Fedora, because the redhat-artwork rpm does not include it.  Strangely, this is included in the rpm for xfwm4, under the /usr/share/xfwm4/themes/Bluecurve directory.  Perhaps (maybe controlled by USE=xfce) the ebuild for redhat-artwork could also get this directory from xfwm's rpm and copy it to /usr/share/themes/Bluecurve/xfwm4?  Would this be legally allowed?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Jeff Davidson 2005-02-09 14:32:59 UTC
Well, I tried quickly to get an ebuild with this functionality working, but my knowledge of the RPM stuff is too limited.  Here are the changes I suggest:

1) Set a variable XFWM_PV to the version available in the Fedora download, in the current case "4.2.0-1"
2) add XFWM to the description
3) if use flag xfce is enabled, add${XFWM_PV}.src.rpm
4) unpack the xfwm4-4.2.0.tar.bz2 tarball within the rpm (is this automatic?)
5) apply the xfwm4-fedora.patch, as this contains the changes that add bluecurve
6) take the bluecurve theme (does this require a make?  I saw a Makefile in the patch, I think) and copy it to /usr/share/themes/Bluecurve/xfwm4

I appreciate the help, I really like the Bluecurve theme over the similar "Curve" theme that comes with xfwm.

last I heard fedora was dropping xfce4 from their cd's dvds, this also seems
like something that would belong in a local overlay and not the tree

I've heard similar news, and I pretty much agree with you here, I guess.  I just
figured it might be something that people would want included.

i agree that this probably shouldn't go into the tree since it is likely to be unmaintained upstream when 
they drop xfce support. plus, if this were to go into the tree, it would be a separate ebuild from redhat-
artwork . so i'm closing this as WONTFIX.
