Bug#793631: stable also affected


stable, aja Jessie, is also affected by this problem. LVM does not use
this code path by default, but it is supported.

Bug#794198: toppler: missing sources of binary file toppler.dat

Package: toppler
Version: 1.1.6-2
Severity: normal

After running "apt-get source toppler" I expected to find all sources of
the toppler game. Unfortunately, the source package contains a big
binary blob "toppler.dat" even though the sources for this file
including a makefile are available here:

I don't know if including this file as a binary blob in the toppler
source package even conflicts with a Debian policy...

Could you change the toppler source package so that the toppler.dat file
is created from sources when building the toppler binary packages?

Bug#794197: toppler: higher resolution icon

Package: toppler
Version: 1.1.6-2
Severity: minor

The toppler icon looks very blurry because of its quite low resolution
(32x32). I noticed that in the upstream data repository there is a GIMP
file with pictures of the toppler dude with a slightly higher resolution
(40x40), see:

I used this file to created a new icon (see attachment) and copied it to
/usr/share/icons/. This looks a little better on desktops with large
icons (e.g. GNOME or KDE).

Could you include this new icon in the debian package?

Bug#794066: dblatex: Way to control DPI of converted figures?

The upstream author suggested a workaround on IRC. By replacing inkscape
with a wrapper looking like this:

  % cat bin/inkscape 
  # Workaround for <URL: >
  exec /usr/bin/inkscape --export-dpi=300 "$ <at> "

And then calling dblatex with bin in PATH, for example like this:

  PATH=`pwd`/bin:$PATH dblatex

This way the DPI of the generated bitmaps become 300.

He was not aware of any way to get a vector drawing included in the PDF
directly, and had plans to extend dblatex to make the figure conversion
code more customizable.


Happy hacking

Bug#794196: lintian: please refresh font data for each release

Package: lintian
X-debbugs-cc: pkg-fonts-devel <at>


 lintian shows duplicate-font-file warning.

 However, ttf-alee is already dummy transitional package.

 It's too old... please exec private/refresh-fonts-data for each release

Bug#794194: britney: Strip off Multi-Arch qualifiers in reverse dependency calculation

Severity: normal
Tags: patch
User: <at>
Usertags: britney


in Ubuntu's britney instance (which triggers autopkgtests for gating
unstable → testing promotion) we noticed that some reverse
dependencies were not being triggered, for example:

   Package: ipython3
   Depends: python3:any (>= 3.3.2-2~)

(Dep list trimmed). This is because britney's reverse dependency
calculation tries to look up "python3:any" in the package map, which
isn't a valid package name. Thus these multi-arch qualifiers should be
stripped off in register_reverses().

Attached patch does that.

Thanks for considering,

Bug#794193: epiphany-browser: missing recommends or depends on gstreamer1.0-libav

Package: epiphany-browser
Version: 3.14.1-1
Severity: normal

By default, epiphany-browser does not pull in gstreamer1.0-libav.  On a
normal gnome (or cinnamon) desktop, other packages such as totem,
cinnamon-desktop-environment, etc pull in gstreamer1.0-libav via
Recommends.  However, on an xfce4 desktop, there's nothing pulling in

Epiphany uses gstreamer to play html5 media streams.  Going to shows me this with epiphany on a jessie system: .  However, 
the H.264 support that is claimed is actually a lie if
gstreamer1.0-libav isn't installed.  When playing H.264 videos (on
youtube and elsewhere), I get sound and previews, but no video.
Here's an example:
Installing gstreamer1.0-libav and restarting epiphany results in video
working properly.

So, epiphany-browser should probably have a Recommends or even a
hard Depends on gstreamer1.0-libav.  There are obviously some larger
issues at play here (like why there are no errors when webkit can't
play a video, and why it claims that the H264 codec is supported when it
actually isn't), but for Debian we can make it work easily enough by
including the proper package.

Bug#794192: kde-plasma-desktop: recent testing dist-upgrade makes kde-plasma go crazy.

Package: kde-plasma-desktop
Version: 5:84
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I have recently dist-upgrade d my debian testing on my laptop.
Kde plasma went crazy. No x in right corner of frame windows.
konsole text area never gets focus. Alt-f2 does not work.

konsole unusable cause no focus.

I am using gnome to file this bug, cause kde-plasma is broke.

I realize I may have filed this on wrong package, but
I do not know which is the correct package. Please forward
to correct package.

Bug#794191: php5-mysql: PHP is compiled with old version of the MySQL headers

Package: php5-mysql
Version: 5.6.11+dfsg-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

After updating my Debian Testing (Stretch) box's PHP install from PHP 5.5.12+dfsg-2 to 5.6.11-1, I
occasionally get the following warnings:

PHP Warning:  mysql_connect(): Headers and client library minor version mismatch. Headers:50625 Library:50543

It appears that php5-mysql is compiled against the mysql-5.6 headers from Sid whereas Stretch still only
has mysql-5.5.

Should the libmysqlclient18 dependency be versioned?
