libdeskbar-tracker is broken in gutsy

Bug #132921 reported by Robin Burchell on 2007-08-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tracker (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: libdeskbar-tracker

It seems libdeskbar-tracker is non-functional in latest gutsy (all upgrades installed, etc).

From some googling I've done it seems deskbar got rewritten/upgraded, and the tracker applet has not at this point.

Also, the tracker extension is now being installed in the wrong directory by the looks of it.



w00t@emerald:~$ /usr/lib/deskbar-applet/deskbar-applet
Data Dir: /usr/share/deskbar-applet
Handlers Dir: ['/home/w00t/.gnome2/deskbar-applet/modules', '/usr/lib/deskbar-applet/modules']

Hope I've done the right thing, I've not submitted a report before. Please correct me if I've made a mistake.

This is indeed broken. The plugin needs to be updated.

Indeed deskbar-applet plugins in 2.19+ have broken abi so old handlers no longer work

we have a new handler developed and will be available in next release in time for tribe 5

we now have both handlers for old and new deskbar

Committed to tracker svn. Hasn't been released in Ubuntu yet (when we release it, we will mark the bug as fix released).

we will have a new release by early next week at latest in time for tribe 6

Maybe status should be changed to "in progress"?

      minimises slowdowns when compiling or checking out source code
    - Makes use of idle class disk IO scheduling if available
    - Makes preliminary use of NO_ATIME (some disk access still uses fopen)

    - Added increased number of (junk) files to automatically ignore
    - Improved stopwords
    - New deskbar handler that uses the new deskbar api (2.19+)
    - Fixed old deskbar handler to remove race condition causing crashes
