Turns out I didn't package this quite as successfully as I thought. I can't get it to run from the .desktop file, and upon running it from the terminal, I get the error message:
Error - VAR_PREFIX = '/var/tuxtype' not found!
Error - SetupPaths() failed, exiting program.
I guess there must have been some changes in the code from 1.8.0 to 1.8.1, as all I did was update the spec file. I can't seem to figure out how to fix this. It seems like an invalid path hardcoded into the source. Any ideas?
If I read the packaging-guide good enough, that means you have to patch the source code (or is there maybe a patch in it, which hasn't to be active anymore?)
= changing source code (there you'll need some programming skills; I don't know in which programming language tuxtype is written?)
Or changing your SPEC-file so that you already have that directory made & accessible before the first start... => search for all /var things in the SPEC to see if something already exists (also the macros)...
Or maybe there's something wrong in the desktop-file?
=> I'll take a look at it after my SQL exam and music school (I have your srpm if I'm right
And maybe some more experienced packager than me also? (I do it only for learning purposes, and maybe
I can find out what's wrong, but I'm not sure about that....)
PS: Tuxtype 1.8.0 was broken if I can remember it right (post is apparently removed from the broken packages section), so I started with opening the SPEC-file and I began modifying some things... but I didn't succeed at the time...)
