Other notes:
I've successfully built it for el7,f22,23,24, and rawhide and have setup a copr for it at

$ rpmlint ../SRPMS/ibus-table-coptic-0.1-3.fc23.src.rpm 
ibus-table-coptic.src:8: W: macro-in-comment %{version}
ibus-table-coptic.src: W: invalid-url Source0:
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.

These are related - I commented out the Source0 URL to my upstream git tag in lieu of the properly renamed zip supplied.

upstream: (version via git tag)

These are things you ought to fix.

Comment 2 Scott Williams 2016-03-07 23:20:09 UTC
Updated to fix Source0.

New spec file:

Comment 4 fujiwara 2016-08-10 08:11:58 UTC
I don't expect to run ibus-daemon in %post.
It's not verified to run ibus-daemon before the desktop installation is completed.

Comment 5 Mike FABIAN 2016-08-10 08:59:34 UTC
Hi Scott, maybe it would be also useful (or even better?) to add an input method to m17n-db?

If an input method exists in /usr/share/m17n/*.mim, it could also be used in ibus-typing booster.

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2016-08-10 16:26:39 UTC
1) Drop following

Requires:       google-noto-sans-coptic-fonts
Obsoletes:      ibus-coptic < 0.1-3

we don't add requirement on fonts and I see there was no such ibus-coptic package existed on Fedora

2) Following is now optional and can be removed

3) Please use macros as mentioned here ->

/usr/share => %{_datadir}  

4) I see other similar packages are not using %post section which is added here for this package. Also explained in comment#4 here

Please update the package and provide new SPEC and SRPM link by bumping release number and adding related changelog entry.

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2016-08-12 07:01:50 UTC
Just seconding Mike's suggestion: it would be better to get your keymap into m17n-db.  This is more portable than ibus-table which is primarily for Chinese. (though currently inaccessible for me)

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2016-10-18 10:20:02 UTC
ping vwbusguy, can you reply for above comments?

Comment 9 Mike FABIAN 2016-11-07 16:47:27 UTC
Created attachment 1218128 [details]

For use with ibus-m17n, the attached file can be used.

You will need to install

    Any suitable Unicode font


$ mkdir -p ~/.m17n.d/
$ cp cop-greek-kbd.mim ~/.m17n.d/
$ ibus restart

Now ibus should list the newly added input method:

$ ibus  list-engine | grep  -i cop
  m17n:cop:greek-kbd - greek-kbd (m17n)

Now add the input method  using the gnome-control-center
or, on non-Gnome desktops, ibus-setup.

ping submitter

Comment 11 Parag AN(पराग) 2017-12-22 07:38:17 UTC
Closing this package review, as its more than a year but no response from submitter.

Anyone want to package this please start with new bugzilla report.
