hi, the version 0.3.7-1 of flpsed in Etch is in bad shape; it is almost unusable, due to these issues: - it needs a "gs" as a backend, but there is no Depends (see bug 402451) - it does not work with gs-gpl, but only with "gs-esp" (see again bug 402451) IMHO the above render the package not really fit for Etch - I also tested that bug on two different hosts, and it always shows; I posted this bug 1month ago, but apparently the mantainer is MIA (also, the mantainer is not a DD); So I decided to address those problems. There is a new upstream version 0.3.9; the best thing would have been to upload 0.3.9 ; but, in the "freeze" spirit, I tried to keep changes at a minimum; so I studied the diff 0.3.7 -> 0.3.9 and tried to do my best. Doing that, I also decided to solve some other problems and bugs in this NMU. Here are the bugs solved by this NMU -------- code related issues --- bug 402451 : flpsed does not work with gs-gpl The upstream author chose to add a XSync() ; I tried that , and it does not work here; so I resolved to call "gs-esp" directly --- bug 398906 : uses an unknown font 'HelveticaNeue-Roman'. I changed that to Helvetica (as is done in 0.3.9) -------- packaging related bugs --- (no bug) debian/rules : use "make distclean" instead of "make clean" ; this deletes a lot of auto* cruft , that was (erroneously) shipped inside flpsed....diff.gz , and was generating lintian warnings --- bug 388318 "pdftops needed for pdf import" Add Recommends: xpdf-utils | poppler-utils --- bug 402451 again add Depends: gs-esp ------ The complete diff of my NMU is in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi/flpsed-0.3.7-1.1-nmu.diff?bug=402451;msg=19;att=1 (but I deleted from that all interdiffs that were complaining because a lot of auto* generated files have disappeared :-) ---- please let this new flpsed into Etch a.
