Just wanted to let you know that I just released Bluetile 0.5 on
Hackage. It now includes a shiny configuration system! :-)
Some packaging related notes:
1. The archive contains the files 'bluetilerc' and
'bluetilerc_user_template'. The later one is copied to ~/.bluetilerc
if such a file does not exist when Bluetile is started.
There is one special thing about bluetilerc_user_template: It
contains the full path to bluetilerc. To make that possible, I again
extended the Cabal build script in such a way, that upon installation
the correct path is inserted in the file.
It should work both for 'cabal install' as well as 'cabal copy' - let
me know if there are any problems.
2. The default, system-wide configuration in bluetilerc contains the
line 'termial: gnome-terminal'. Maybe you would like to change that
to 'x-terminal-emulator' for Debian. Then again, Bluetile is now
specifically geared towards GNOME, so maybe it makes sense to leave
it as 'gnome-terminal'. Decide as you see fit.
3. I have extended the dock with a button that launches
'gedit ~/.bluetilerc' . Therefore Bluetile now depends on gedit.
4. It seems that the manpage for gnome-bluetile-session hasn't been
included in the Debian package the last time. Maybe that can be
changed with the next package as well.
Best regards! :-)
