Description: Simple program to toggle Translucency property.

This is a little handy tool. I want to mention that I forced to use "cvs co" instead of unpacking source-archives 'cause project actually never released as tarball. Maybe it would be better to download all 4 files and put it into tarball by myself?

Hey Peter. You shouldn't set the review flag here. That will be set by a
reviewer once they are reviewing your package, see:

CVS sources are ok...See:

Just a quick glance (well, no so quick in fact)
- minor problem: there are lots of duplicate BR: xorg-x11-proto-devel (by
libX11-devel), pkgconfig (by libX11-devel), libX11-devel (by libXrender-devel),
libXfixes-devel (by libXcomposite-devel)
- the build log shows that compiler flags are not taken into account:
+ /usr/bin/make
cc  `pkg-config --cflags xcomposite xfixes xdamage xrender` -c transSet.c
cc  `pkg-config --cflags xcomposite xfixes xdamage xrender` -c dsimple.c
cc  -o transset transSet.o dsimple.o `pkg-config --libs xcomposite xfixes
xdamage xrender` -lm
+ exit 0
- is the application a GUI ? If so, it should have a desktop file
- I've tried to use it, but since there is no documentation, no man pages,
nothing... I could not. Or maybe I could, but I did not know that until I read
the sources. Whatever argument I pass to the application, it just echoes it and
then sits until Ctrl-C is pressed:
[wolfy@wolfy64 tmp]$ ./transset 1
got arg 1
d is 1

[wolfy@wolfy64 tmp]$ ./transset 12
got arg 12
d is 12

As upstream does not provide docs, I suggest creating a Readme.fedora file and
include in it the comment from the beginning of transSet.c. Or add the first
line of that comment to %Description. Just waiting for a mouse click without any
 useful output was not helpful and I doubt that users will have the patience to
read the source code as I did.

It's been very nearly a year since the last comment from the submitter.  This
really should be closed now, and I'll do so soon if there's no further response.

Comment 7 Peter Lemenkov 2008-04-30 04:40:55 UTC
Oh, I completely forgot about this Review Request. I lost interest in visual effects such as 
translucency/waroing/morfing and other compiz-related stuff.

I'm closint this ticket
