No problem!  :)

I've just installed the librsvg2-common package and I can confirm that
fbpanel is now able to display SVG and does not spit errors any longer.

Hence, it really seems that the new dependency will fix the bug.

Bug#435474: Package: qa - Suggest to upgrade severity of Sky2 module problem

Package: qa


First of all thank you for all the work that you and others do on the
Debian project.

I'd suggest to upgrade the problem with the sky2 module to "severe"
because at least in my case it makes Debian Etch unusable as a Server
with the Sky2 module.

Bug#435475: roxterm doesn't tie in to alternative/x-terminal-emulator

Package: roxterm
Version: 1.5.2-1
Severity: normal

It's a shame that roxterm doesn't tie in with the alternative system in

 # update-alternatives --list x-terminal-emulator

Any chance of getting that addressed?

Applications/Office, actually.  Yes, support for the new menu format will
be in the next upload.

Thank you for the report!

I do not agree.

In libgpevtype-dev 0.50-1 you have an file
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/libgpevtype.pc which has:
Requires: glib-2.0, mimedir-1.0, libeventdb

This means that libgpevtype-dev should Depend on packages providing the
.pc files for glib-2.0, mimedir-1.0 and libeventdb.

It has: Depends: libgpevtype1 (= 0.50-1)

So it's missing:
libglib2.0-dev, libmimedir-gnome0-dev, libeventdb-dev

Otherwise the libgpevtype.pc is of no use, and anything build depending
on libgpevtype-dev that tries to use it will get an error.

I downloaded and installed the package:

But I see no improvement.  I have several sets in my flickr account but
non of them turn up when using flickrfs.

It is a null operation; it just happens to not ignore null operations.
