Bug Description

This is against libindicator3-dev in oneiric (0.3.22-0ubuntu1):

Attempting to port an indicator to gtk3 and noticed that pkg-config --cflags indicator3 yields:


as one of the arguments, however, the headers are installed to /usr/include/libindicator3-0.3. Identical headers are also installed with libindicator-dev at the above location, and that is probably why none of the other indicators have failed to build, because they build-dep on both.

Including a patch against libindicator/

The headers are actually installed twice, so I think the best fix for this is to not include the headers in libindicator3-dev and make it depend on libindicator-dev.

Hi Ken,

Since this bug has been closed, the headers haven't been removed from libindicator3-dev, they're still included there.
In addition, the path in the Cflags field has been corrected just like Jason suggested, see [1].

So, now it seems there's no reason for libindicator3-dev to depend on libindicator-dev.

Can you please remove this dependency then?

(If a new bug report is needed for that, no problem - I'll file it.)
