Description Andrew Sobala 2003-04-09 15:20:19 UTC
control-center includes these files:

libgnome-window-settings.so.1
libgnome-window-settings.so.1.0.0

It is missing:

libgnome-window-settings.so

So applications work, but ld refuses to link any new packages against this library.

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-08-29 10:39:02 UTC
The specfile specifically removes the .so file. Probably because nothing should link against this library (it has no headers for instance).

What tried to link against it?


Comment 2 Andrew Sobala 2003-08-29 11:43:53 UTC
This was from when themus was a standalone module; it needed this to change
window themes.

I'm going from memory here, but I think the relevant headers are installed by
the control-center tarball in include/gnome-window-settings-2.0/*.h. So if the
headers aren't meant to be installed then that's an upstream bug.

Comment 3 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-21 11:36:28 UTC
Marking this as a dup of 88375 and adding a comment there. These needs
to be fixed together.
