Bug Description

lshw-gtk-02.06-3 is missing a .desktop file.

This is a basic .desktop file. This source generates multiple binaries: someone else should provide a patch :)

This debdiff adds a desktop file to the package.

This bug is against a package in main, so it can't be uploaded by MOTUs. Matthias, you did the last lshw upload, so I figured you would be the right person to assign this bug.

at least in edgy, it's in universe

Filename: pool/main/l/lshw/lshw_02.06-3ubuntu1_i386.deb

Apparently the binary, at least, is in main.

The desktop file should go with the GUI application lshw-gtk in universe.
Subscribed ubuntu-universe-sponsors.

...and the source, which is what gets uploaded, is in main. I cant upload this.

Emmet: You have written "Encoding=UTF-8" on the .desktop file. Isn't this *deprecated?

Oh, last message here is five months old. Isn't it fixed yet?

Emmet Hikory (persia) wrote :

It is not yet fixed. The patch (and debdiff) are indeed out of date, and should not be used as-is. If there is real interest is addressing this, it may be best to report upstream.

Here is an updated debdiff.

Hi! Thanks for working to get the debdiff updated. Did you successfully build with this debdiff? I think there are a few things wrong (I see stuff in the .install file that belongs in the debian/rules file, for example, and there an "N" file?)

Can you build this and install the resulting package to verify that the .desktop works for you? Thanks!

This one should work.

Thanks. I'd like to request that my name be spelled "Hikory", rather than "Hickory" in the changelog.

Sorry, fixed.

There was a space at the end of the xpm path in the .menu file. I fixed that and sponsored the upload. :) Nice work!
