Description Francois Aucamp 2007-01-24 18:29:57 UTC
Spec URL:
This is an LD_PRELOAD library that allows Gtk and Qt applications (such as
Firefox, Evolution, Eclipse, etc) to use KDE's file dialogs.

When a Gtk/Qt app is executed, it starts the kdialogd app (if not already
started), and communicates with this via a UNIX domain socket. There will only
ever be one instance of kdialogd, and all apps communicate with the same
instance - and it terminates itself 30 seconds after the last Gtk/Qt app has

This package builds in mock (fc6/i386) and has been built and tested on fc6/i386 and fc5/x86_64. rpmlint is silent.

Comment 1 Karol Trzcionka 2007-01-24 20:52:49 UTC
I will review it later. I can see that the *.so is not in devel subpackage. You
must fix it.

(In reply to comment #1)

No. The .so files are not development libraries; they are merely LD_PRELOAD
modules that get loaded when another program is executed (if needed). If you
look at the wrapper scripts /usr/bin/kgtk-wrapper and /usr/bin/kqt-wrapper
you'll see what I mean.

I have, however, patched an error in the libkgtk module's that
caused it to create (useless) library version information.

New build:
Spec URL:

- Created patch to prevent useless* symlinks during %%build
- Added package name/version prefix to patch filenames

Comment 4 Karol Trzcionka 2007-01-25 20:20:14 UTC
My mistake, I did not read files :)
With new patch the files are more clear.

   This package (kgtk) is APPROVED by me.

Comment 5 Francois Aucamp 2007-01-26 06:53:20 UTC

Comment 6 Francois Aucamp 2007-01-26 08:03:25 UTC
