Xpra: Ticket #136: Please get setup.py to install xpra_launcher.1 manpage


The desktop launcher xpra_launcher.desktop has those fields:

Exec: xpra_launcher
TryExec: xpra_launcher

although setup.py actually installs xpra_launcher as xpra:

    scripts=["scripts/parti", "scripts/parti-repl",
             "scripts/xpra", "scripts/xpra_launcher",

The attached patch corrects the name of the executable to 'xpra'.

Sorry, but this is not the case, the distutils setup.py installs both. And the one to run from the UI is xpra_launcher, so everything is correct as far as I can tell.

As for packaging, I can see it in the rpm specfile:


But it was missing from the debian xpra.install file, this is fixed in r885 (will backport to 0.3 branch)

I see, thanks for the explanation.

In that case, I think that setup.py should also install xpra_launcher.1 manpage.

good catch!

done in r893 for both trunk and v0.3 branch

see also r899

Note: if you make any changes to your copy of the /debian/ package files, please let me know so my packages don't end up diverging too much.
