Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-shell

Fresh install of maverick, using home dir from lucid. After starting gnome-shell --replace from the terminal, nothing happens. Actually it behaves like starting metacity --replace and shows the following message:

daniel@c64:~$ gnome-shell --replace

(mutter:21736): mutter-WARNING **: Could not load library [/usr/lib/mutter/plugins/ ( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)]

This bug was fixed in the package gnome-shell - 2.31.5-2ubuntu2

gnome-shell (2.31.5-2ubuntu2) maverick; urgency=low

  * Fix gnome-shell to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that libmozjs can be found;
    Don't use pkg-config, use xulrunner-1.9.2 to figure out the path to
    libmozjs (LP: #576991) (LP: #629828)
    - update debian/patches/04_workaround_libmozjs_build.patch
  * Drop binary depends on pkg-config and replace with xulrunner-1.9.2;
    xulrunner-1.9.2 is already pulled in by the depends in any case, but
    now it's needed directly by gnome-shell
    - update debian/
