lfs-files are missing in package python-pyx

Bug Description

Running a "hello world!" example fails with python-pyx on ubuntu 11.10 oneric.

# hello world example (python code)
from pyx.canvas import canvas
c = canvas()
c.text(0, 0, "Hello, world!")

The error is:
IOError: Could not locate the file '10pt.lfs'.

This file is not listed in the file list for the new version "0.11.1-1" but it is present in older versions such as "0.10-2build1" for natty. Building the same package from source without any changes fixes the problem. The file can now be found at:


Maybe the package just needs to be recompiled.

This bug was fixed in the package pyx - 0.11.1-2

pyx (0.11.1-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add texlive-latex-base to Build-Depends to correctly rebuild lfs files if
    only binary packages are being built (LP: #896924).
  * Use the sphinx debhelper module to check over the sphinx documentation.
  * Build-depend on debhelper >= 8.9.5 to stop dh_compress compressing sphinx
