Thank you for reporting this. I'm rather certain that the categories entry will need to be further adjusted for Ubuntu 7.10, in line with

I'm unfortunately getting this validation error:

error: value "application/x-kmyfirewall;application/x-kmfrs;application/x-kmfgrs" for string list key "MimeType" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';') as trailing character

I don't get any complain. Do you have the latest version of desktop-file-utils?

Cesare Tirabassi (norsetto) wrote :

Yes, version 0.13 (which complies to the desktop entry specification 1.0).

Ah, it's me who hasn't the latest version (I've 0.12)... It's getting time that I switch to Gutsy :P

Is the problem that a semicolon is missing on the end of that line? If yes here is a fixed debdiff (I can't check it with 0.13 since I don't have the dependencies for it).

Looks good. I did edit the changelog entry slightly. I'm going to have a go at understanding Bug #48076 and see if I can deal with it, but otherwise assuming it tests out good, I'll upload it.

OK. Still needs work. The patch for the .desktop file fails to apply:

test -d debian/patched || install -d debian/patched
dpatch apply-all
applying patch 01_fix_desktop_file to ./ ... failed.
make: *** [patch-stamp] Error 1
pbuilder: Failed autobuilding of package

Other stuff needing to be done to the package:

  * Add build-dep for dpatch
  * Bump standards version to 3.7.2 (check to see if other changes are required)
  * Change maintainer to MOTU

Unsubscribing UUS. Please resubscribe once you have a revised update available.

I'm not sure if it works, perhaps the standards version change is breaking something.

Builds nicely for me, uploaded.

The exec command line of the *.desktop file does not include the kdesu command for elevation of privileges since root is needed to access the iptables. On startup kmyfirewall will complain about no root access and no changes cam be saved. Also because of the elevation of privileges issue does kmyfirewall need to have kdesu added as a dependency? I can't answer this question since I don't have enough experience with dependency issues.
