Bug Description

There are two issues that cause the package to FTBFS during rebuilds. First one is the missing gnome-common build-dependency:

make[1]: Entering directory '/<<BUILDDIR>>/bamf-0.5.3+16.10.20160929'
NOCONFIGURE=1 dh_autoreconf ./
You need to install the gnome-common module and make
sure the script is in your $PATH.
dh_autoreconf: ./ returned exit code 1
debian/rules:11: recipe for target 'override_dh_autoreconf' failed
make[1]: *** [override_dh_autoreconf] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/<<BUILDDIR>>/bamf-0.5.3+16.10.20160929'
debian/rules:8: recipe for target 'build-arch' failed
make: *** [build-arch] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build-arch gave error exit status 2

But even after this dependency is satisfied, the build seems to fail on use of some deprecated functions in the code. One example:

bamf-legacy-window.c: In function 'top_window_action_menu':
bamf-legacy-window.c:548:3: error: 'gdk_screen_get_monitor_scale_factor' is deprecated: Use 'gdk_monitor_get_scale_factor' instead [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]
   scale = gdk_screen_get_monitor_scale_factor (gdk_screen_get_default (), 0);

The easiest way would be to simply disable the -Werror=deprecated-declarations and see how this goes, but the *proper* fix would be to get rid of the deprecated functions and use the new, proper ones instead. I leave the decision how to proceed to the upstream developers.

Anyway, I propose a merge to fix the first part of the problem.

Just a note - an experimental removal of -Werror from makes the trunk buildable again (with the dep-change branch applied). This means that the only issues with the package right now are the deprecation-warnings (or other warnings) - no other build issues.

                 working-around it and then leaving it for you to fix it
                 properly in the nearest future?
13:34 < sil2100> I want to clear as much as possible from the FTBFS list before
                 release of zesty
13:47 < Trevinho> sil2100: let me check a sec
13:48 < Trevinho> sil2100: oh, never mind... yeah, please do that... As we
                  don't really care much at this point of deprecated.
13:48 < Trevinho> sil2100: even in unity we've that, so it's fine... As they
                  won't last longer anyway.

    declarations. (LP: #1680104)
