Bug Description

In oneiric, libgnome2-0 is not installed by default... this means that the "gnome-open" command used by gedit-latex-plugin is unavailable. This is seen in the oneiric backport of version 3.3.1 of the plugin.

To reproduce...
1. Make a simple LaTeX file
2. Use the "LaTeX -> PDF" command
>> a warning message appears in the bottom-pane because gnome-open is unavailable

To workaround...
Install libgnome2-0.

Hi Alex - Thanks for reporting this. Instead of continuing to use gnome-open, which has been deprecated, I'm going to switch the package to using gvfs-open, which is the new GNOME-sanctioned replacement for gnome-open. (

Once the package has been uploaded to Precise, then we can look into backporting the fix to oneiric-backports. In the mean time, I'm going to mark the oneiric-backports task as Incomplete.
