regression in xmonad/gnome -interoperability

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xmonad (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xmonad

Using xmonad with gnome in current Jaunty development version reveals some problems.
The gnome-panels as well as nautilus-desktop have lost their special status and are treated like ordinary windows.

The problem seems to be that Jaunty has X11-1.4.2 while xmonad is expecting to find an obsoleted version of it.

Maybe try removing the ~/.xmonad/xmonad.o and ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hi files – I’d be surprised to see that libghc6-xmonad-dev depend on libghc6-x11-dev (= 1.4.2-1) but be built against X11-1.4.1.

Also note that newer pakages are in Debian, maybe they can be merged.

Got this fixed already. I had some packages installed locally with ghc-pkg, Carefully removing those packages fixed the problem.

Changed in xmonad:
