Mase_wkhi guys, i am trying to package an application and I would like it to add it's directory to the PATH on installation. What is the preferred way to do this ?06:01
micahgMase_wk: to not do this at all...why can't you install in the appropriate existing paths06:01
Mase_wkgood question. I guess there is no real reason at all other than the install guides telling me to set it up this way06:04
Mase_wkmicahg: this is a small python utility which dynamically looks at the path of the executable to see where it should load the rest of it's components from06:06
Mase_wki think i would have to change that behavior to jam it in /usr/bin06:06
Mase_wkis there a recommended way of doing that or should i just hard code it ?06:06
Mase_wkit has a bunch of xslt, xml files as well as other python libs06:07
micahgMase_wk: I'm not so familiar with python utilities06:08
RAOFThe xslt, xml stuff sounds like it wants to go in /usr/share/$PACKAGENAME, and the other python bits treated differently.06:08
ScottKThe actual executable should still go in /usr/bin even though it's written in Python.06:09
Mase_wkRAOF: right, so i'm not really sure what the best way to modify this application to make that happen is. Do i go through and hardcode it , or should i try an make it a config option and upstream it ?06:09
Mase_wkat the moment it's reasonably dynamic, you just run the binary and it figures out where stuff is.06:10
RAOFYeah, but it's wrong :)06:10
RAOFOr, at least, that's not *NIX-y.06:10
Mase_wkyeh i understand that, i am just trying to work out how best to modify it06:10
RAOFIf you can see a clean way to do it upstream, that's better.06:11
RAOFIf you can't, it's ok to distro-patch.06:11
Mase_wkhmm ok thanks06:11

DktrKranzmicahg: which version? I pushed 2.0.1 soon after squeeze, isn't that enough?16:49
micahgDktrKranz: yeah, but natty only has 2.0.0, so I'm wondering about an FFe, I just want to know how bad it affects everything16:50
DktrKranzmicahg: scons upstream is *very* smart about that, so minor versions are all about bugfixes16:51
DktrKranzthere could be some new features, but backward compatibility is almost always a guarantee16:52
micahgDktrKranz: ok, what about rebuilds, do we need them for all build-depends or just stuff that is experiencing issues16:52
DktrKranz(e.g. 1.X -> 2.X was a no-op for most of the rdeps)16:52
* micahg thought he saw a new feature or 2, which would require an FFe16:52
DktrKranzno need to rebuild16:52
DktrKranzI don't think there will be any differences16:53
DktrKranzexcept failing packages which become buildable :)16:53
micahgDktrKranz: ah, ok, that's great news, thanks16:53
DktrKranzif you want, I could setup a test framework to rebuild all rdeps, just to make sure it works16:54

psusiso is there some sort of magic bridge that connects gtk signals to dbus signals?21:15
broderpsusi: yes, but it's not pure magic. you ahve to tell glib about the dbus signals you care about21:24
broderhmm...actually i'm not sure if that's true with gdbus. it was with dbus-glib21:25
psusiok.  now things are starting to make sense... now if I could just find this magic bridge...21:26
broderpsusi: are you using gdbus or dbus-glib?21:26
psusidunno, I'm looking at gnome-power-manager and UPower21:27
broderdbus-glib, then21:27
broderat least for g-p-m21:27
psusiand don't really know anything about gtk or dbus before today ;)21:27
broder(happened to have the code in front of me already)21:27
broderso i don't know how things work if you're generating proxy classes from dbus introspection data21:28
broderbut if you're just using DBusGProxy, you use dbus_g_proxy_add_signal to tell the object to listen for the signal21:28
psusiI've been studying it trying to understand how the gpm gconf keys to disable locking the screen and starting the screen saver got broke... at least when you choose to suspend from the menu21:28
broderand dbus_g_proxy_connect_signal to setup a callback21:28
psusithen I think the SIGNAL_SUSPENDING in gpm is vestigial now and should be removed... it is no longer part of the dbus interface and I can't find any code connecting to it within gpm...21:30
psusihrm... if you add an argument to a dbus signal, will that break existing clients, or will they just ignore the new argument?21:31
broderit depends on the framework, but it will likely break existing clients21:44
psusibroder: damn... so adding an argument to a well known interface like org.freedesktop.UPower.Sleeping is a no go?  Have to add a whole new signal or a property to get the desired info instead?21:55
broderi'm fairly positive that python-dbus, at least, would blow up. i think gdbus and dbus-glib will both depend on implementational details, but you'd have to be pretty lucky21:56
brodernetworkmanager has had to do this before - c.f. /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.{sleep,Sleep}21:56
broderwell, those are methods not signals, i guess21:57
lucidfoxOh crap, I seem to have flooded Planet Ubuntu with old posts21:57
lucidfoxany way to undo that?21:57
micahgslingshot around the sun?21:58
psusibroder: so something like add a SuspendingEx() signal that has the argument, and emit both?21:58
psusierr, SleepingEx() rather21:58
broderpsusi: yeah, i think so. or expose the extra piece of information as a property, and sufficiently intelligent clients can query for it when they get the Sleeping signal21:59
psusimicahg: even doing that, you'd never get to warp factor 10 with current technology ;)21:59
micahgpsusi: that didn't seem to be a requirement before...21:59
warp10psusi: do you need some warp10?22:00
psusimicahg: that was the purpose of slingshotting around the sun... to get the kingon bucket of bolts to warp factor 10 for timewarp ;)22:01
micahgpsusi: warp 10 wasn't infinite in TOS, only in TNG and on, and this is getting too offtopic, happy to continue discussion in PM22:01
lucidfoxOkay, I've fixed the RSS so that it outputs the correct dates (it previously formatted month names in Russian...)22:18
