problem with missing link to libX11


Hi Gnome developers,

I recently came across a strange compilation problem where multiple
projects fail to compile with the same error? They compiled earlier, and
I have a fresh installation. The error is:
  /usr/bin/ld: ...: undefined reference to symbol '...'
  /usr/bin/ld: note: '...' is defined in DSO .../libX11.so so try adding
it to the linker command line
  .../libX11.so: could not read symbols: Invalid operation

The problem can be fixed by adding $(X_LIBS) to the *_LDADD variable of
Makefile.am, see bug #638510:
 https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=638510

Projects with this problem are (respective branch):
  gnome-applets (master)
  gnome-panel (gtk3)
  libwnck (gtk3)

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 (development branch).

Any idea?

Cheers,
Enrico

Special directory handling


Hey everyone,


This is sort of cross posted, but not quite (I've read the rules!). I've raised the same issue from a different perspective in nautilus-list, as it may be applicable there. I'm not 100% sure.

What I'm looking for is a way (patch, plugin, gconf, etc) to allow directories with extensions to be handled differently. For example, a folder ending in ".bbb" will have a different icon, properties, and when 'executed' it will instead run an application inside the directory instead of opening it in whatever the file manager is.

Also sorry if this has been mentioned before, or is a noob question. I had a bit of a scrounge around and couldn't find much. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
-Keith

If a university course is contributing to your project, could you answer a short survey?


If you are working with a college or university course that is contributing to your Gnome project, would you be willing to help me?
 
For the Frontiers in Education conference this year, I'd like to do a paper on OSS projects in class from the manager's perspective.  That is, how have open-source projects benefited from the contributi\
ons of students who are writing code for a course they are taking?
 
- If you manage any OSS projects, would you be willing to answer the survey?
- If you work with any OSS managers, would you be willing to forward the survey to them?
 
The survey itself is very short, only 7 questions, and most of them can be answered with just a name or a number.
 
 
Thanks for your help,
Ed
