replaces   :

in order to assure safe upgrade path, because for users who are already using nautilus-actions it won't be enough to install just filemanager-actions, but they need filemanager-actions-nautilus package (which depends on filemanager-actions).

Move /usr/include headers and /usr/lib64/*.a files into iverilog package since it's built that way in both Fedora and Ubuntu (https://packages.ubuntu.com/artful/amd64/iverilog/filelist).
Also in fedora (https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/iverilog/blob/master/f/iverilog.spec) which normally has a strick rule for separate devel patterns, has a comment which states that headers are meant to be used by the user.

ThanosApostolou updated subscribers of D2393: Move private headers at /usr/include/tcl8.6.

@kyrios123 if you can take a look at this. Before many packages needed some configure options, setting variables or even sed commands in order to successfully find private headers. Now, they seem to work out of the box. This is how the package is built in arch too (using make install-private-headers), in contrast with Ubuntu and Fedora (manually installing private headers).

Mar 16 2018, 1:30 PM
ThanosApostolou updated the diff for D2393: Move private headers at /usr/include/tcl8.6.

I used make install-private-headers instead of manually installing private headers and now both otcl and expect can be built out of the box (without any configure options) while either the one or the either were failing before no matter what I did.

@DataDrake sorry for mentioning you again but if you can take a look at it (I believe that something similar should be done for tk package too).
I'm also thinking that maybe /usr/lib64/tclConfig.sh and /usr/lib64/tclooConfig.sh should be owned by devel pattern but I'm not sure about it.

ThanosApostolou added a comment to R3007:745391803f1d: Update tcl to 8.6.8.

@DataDrake Yeah when they go into path /usr/include/tcl8.6/tcl-private the headers are recognized. However, there is also another problem. Header tclInt.h includes tclPort.h which has the line: include "tclUnixPort.h". However, this file is at folder ../unix (relative path from generic folder). So, we should either add a patch similar to this https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/tcl/blob/master/f/tcl-8.6.7-hidden.patch or add the unix header files into the generic folder as well (I don't know if are needed to be at a separate unix folder for any other software)

ThanosApostolou updated subscribers of R3007:745391803f1d: Update tcl to 8.6.8.

@kyrios123 @DataDrake Why do private headers go under %libdir/tcl8.6 and not /usr/include/tcl8.6 ? In Fedora (https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/tcl/blob/master/f/tcl.spec) they are added under /usr/incude/tcl8.6/tcl-private/ and /usr/include/tcl8.6 headers get linked under /usr/include/tcl8.6/tcl-private/generic/ folder too. I am trying to build otcl (which I need to build ns2, which I really need!) and I cannot make it to find tclInt.h header (which is in private/generic folder). I don't know if that's the problem, but I had successfully built it in Fedora in the past.

ThanosApostolou added a comment to D2236: use lib64 instead of libexec.

I'd like to add some extra panel layouts for mate tweak (I will do a patch submition when I'm done with testing). Some of them are base on ubuntu-mate-settings layouts (e.g. Mutiny) and mate tweak checks /usr/lib path for finding vala appmenu mate applet. This fixes that. The official ubuntu package vala-panel-appmenu package is built with the same cmake option.

@JoshStrobl I could be wrong but I believed I double checked it. According to this https://pycairo.readthedocs.io/en/latest/changelog.html latest version is stable version (since 11.0). Also according to this: https://pycairo.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ it says it requires cairo >= 1.13.1 without demanding any specific cairo version. I did a simple tutorial and seems to work fine with the latest versions. Can you verify and confirm it once again please (it's not important but mostly because I want to know if I missed something that important).

ThanosApostolou added a comment to T5725: python-jupyter_client missing a dependency.

Just leaving this comment here. What I understand from the official site (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/jupyter_client), is that the option extra=='test' means if you want to run the tests on the module (my knowledge in python is minimal so I could be completely wrong). So, if I'm right, then python-pytest, python-mock, python-ipython and python-ipykernel could be added as builddeps in order to add tests to the package, but not as rundeps.

Josh it's not a budgie issue. The desktop launcher link has wrong path. If you see the file here: https://github.com/solus-project/3rd-party/blob/master/office/mendeleydesktop/actions.py I think that the line

pisitools.dosym("../../opt/mendeley/share/applications/mendeleydesktop.desktop", "/usr/share/applications/mendeleydesktop.desktop")

should be changed to

pisitools.dosym("../../../opt/mendeley/share/applications/mendeleydesktop.desktop", "/usr/share/applications/mendeleydesktop.desktop")

(with an extra "../") but I'm not familiar with how pisitools work, so I don't do any Pull Request because I cannot test it, better try it yourself to see if that's the problem.
