Description Christopher Meng 2014-02-10 06:35:12 UTC
Now many gimp plugins are being packaged, and some other packages may include gimp plugin as well, some packagers install plugins to wrong place so I hope you can add a macro %_gimp_plugindir:

%global gimpplugindir %(gimptool --gimpplugindir)/plug-ins

install -pd %{buildroot}%{_rpmconfigdir}/macros.d
cat >> %{buildroot}%{_rpmconfigdir}/macros.d/macros.gimp << EOF
# GIMP Macros

%%_gimp_plugindir              %{gimpplugindir}


And put the macro into devel.

This is a good idea, but I'll have to tweak it a bit:

- I don't want to rely on gimptool to build gimp, this makes bootstrapping hard. I guess I'll just have to leave things hard-coded in gimp.
- The macro file needs to work on multi-lib, i.e. not contain hard-coded paths but use appropriate macros.

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2014-02-13 13:00:38 UTC
I've built gimp-2.8.10-5.fc21 which contains this /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/macros.gimp file:

--- 8< --------------------------------------
# RPM macros for GIMP

%_gimp_datadir %{_datadir}/gimp/2.0
%_gimp_libdir %{_libdir}/gimp/2.0
%_gimp_sysconfdir %{_sysconfdir}/gimp/2.0
%_gimp_localedir %{_datadir}/locale
%_gimp_scriptdir %{_datadir}/gimp/2.0/scripts
%_gimp_plugindir %{_libdir}/gimp/2.0/plug-ins
--- >8 --------------------------------------

I've committed this change into the F-19, F-20 dist-git branches, therefore future updates (once they happen) in the stable releases will get this as well.
