gnome-session 2.26.2-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


gnome-session (2.26.2-1ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Merge from debian unstable (LP: #396292), remaining changes:
    - debian/control:
      + Don't build-depend on libpolkit-gnome-dev.
      + Build-dep on xtrans-dev.
      + gnome-session depends on Nautilus. We still specify a
        filemanager as being a required component of the session, with
        Nautilus being the default. Debian don't have the filemanager as
        a required component, but use it's autostart file instead.
      + gnome-session doesn't break nautilus. See last comment.
      + gnome-session-bin depends on policykit-1-gnome rather than
      + gnome-session-bin breaks consolekit (<< 0.3.0-2ubuntu5) due
        to polkit-1 migration.
    - debian/gnome-session.install, debian/gnome-session.links:
      + Don't install /etc/gnome/defaults.list - this is installed
        by desktop-file-utils on Ubuntu.
    - debian/gnome-session-bin.gconf-defaults:
      + Don't change the default required_components_list.
    - debian/patches/19_gnome-wm-tweaking.patch:
      + Some magic for determining which WM to use.
    - debian/patches/20_polkit1.patch:
      + Port to polkit-1 API.
    - debian/patches/80_new_upstream_session_dialog.patch:
      + Bugzilla patch to change the session dialog.
    - debian/patches/95_dbus_request_shutdown.patch:
      + Add "RequestShutdown" and "RequestReboot" DBus methods to
        allow other applications to shutdown or reboot the machine
        via the session manager.
    - debian/patches/97_aclocal_amflags.patch:
      + Add ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4 to
    - debian/patches/98_autotools.patch:
      - Autotools update.
  * Dropped debian/patches/81_gnome_wm_install.patch - the change
    is in 01_gnome-wm.patch from Debian now.
  * Refreshed patches:
    - 19_gnome-wm-tweaking.patch.
    - 20_polkit1.patch.
    - 80_new_upstream_session_dialog.patch.
    - 98_autotools.patch.
  * This version also splits the package in to gnome-session-bin, which
    contains the minimal runtime needed to actually run the gnome-session
    binary, and gnome-session, which contains all the startup scripts
    and has much larger dependencies, including the components which are
    required by default (LP: #396657).

gnome-session (2.26.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * defaults.list: use brasero-nautilus instead of nautilus-cd-burner.
  * 55gnome-session_gnomerc: make it clear that /usr/share/gnome is not
    a symlink to /etc, since users are stupid enough to think this
    should be the case.
  * New upstream release.
  * 01_gnome-wm.patch, 10_session_save.patch: updated accordingly.
  * 11_dbus_exit.patch: replaced by the much improved version provided
    by upstream.
  * 12_desktop_crash.patch: dropped, merged upstream.

gnome-session (2.26.1-7) unstable; urgency=low

  * 12_desktop_crash.patch: new patch from Petr Gajdůšek. Use
    g_ptr_array_free to free a GPtrArray, not g_strfreev.
    Closes: #532702.

gnome-session (2.26.1-6) unstable; urgency=low

  * 01_gnome-wm.patch:
    + Don’t set LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT, compiz does it by itself if
      needed and it slows things down if it’s not needed.
    + Don’t enable the glib compiz plugin, only the gconf one; the glib
      plugin makes it lock up on startup. Closes: #531388.

gnome-session (2.26.1-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * 01_gnome-wm.patch:
    + Actually install gnome-wm.desktop, it’s pretty useless otherwise.
    + Don’t read the GConf key, it’s obviously set to gnome-wm if we’re
      starting gnome-wm.
    + Make compiz the default if compiz-gtk is installed.
    + Remove a few unneeded things from the script to make it start
  * gconf-defaults: make gnome-wm the default window manager.
  * README.Debian: document how programs are started and how to
    configure the different kinds of startups.
  * 90_relibtoolize.patch: updated.
  * Split the package between gnome-session-bin, which contains the
    minimal runtime needed to actually run the gnome-session binary, and
    gnome-session, which contains all the startup scripts and has much
    larger dependencies, including the components which are required by
    default. This prepares us for GDM 2.26.
  * Update the list of copyright holders.

gnome-session (2.26.1-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * gconf-defaults: remove the file manager from the required components
    list. Now that nautilus has an autostart file, this is no longer
    necessary. It avoids restarting it endlessly when this is not
    required. Closes: #525718.
  * Break nautilus << 2.26.2-4 to ensure the autostart file is here.

gnome-session (2.26.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Stop mentioning GNOME 2.
  * defaults.list: add nautilus folder handlers and x-content handlers.
    Closes: #530567, #530691.

gnome-session (2.26.1-2) experimental; urgency=low

  * prerm: only unregister the alternative when deinstalling the
    package. Closes: #524900.
  * Break xserver-xorg << 1:7.4. See GNOME#568989 for why.
  * Drop build-dependencies on gnome-keyring and libgnomeui.
    Closes: #526960.
  * copyright:
    + Update list of main authors. Closes: #526963.
    + Point to versioned GPL.
  * 11_dbus_exit.patch: new patch. Don’t exit when the system bus is
    disconnected. Thanks Sjoerd Simmons for the hint.
