Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2014-01-29 02:54:13 UTC
Weird, I don't get apper pulled in. Probably because I already have another package installed that provides that dependency. Using repoquery --provides apper, repoquery --requires paprefs and then repoquery --whatprovides PackageKit-session-service, it could be that you don't have gnome-packagekit installed, which would provide that dependency. What desktop are you running?
Comment 2 Markus S. 2014-01-29 14:01:55 UTC
Yes, I don't have Gnome PackageKit installed. I use Plasma Desktop and YumEx as graphical package manager. Why would a PulseAudio preferences app require a PackageKit frontend anyway?
Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2014-01-30 07:17:49 UTC
From the home page, "There is an implicit dependency on PackageKit. If you don't install PackageKit the 'Install' buttons in the UI for installing necessary PulseAudio plugins won't work." Since Fedora's RPM and packaging guidelines do not sanction the use of soft dependencies, we had to choose between not listing the suggested/recommended dependency on PackageKit altogether, and making it a hard dependency.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:43:34 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '20'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Franco Bugnano 2015-06-06 08:03:30 UTC
This problem still exists in Fedora 22, when installing paprefs using dnf, a lot of KDE related dependencies get installed. I know that it is not easy to implement, but it would be great if in this case the PackageKit frontend of the currently used desktop environment gets installed, instead of defaulting to KDE.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 14:50:41 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
