    Default LaTeXila - an integrated LaTeX enviroment for GNOME

    I am trying to build LaTeXila in my OBS home directory and it does not build correctly. I don't understand the build errors. However the Fedora RPM installs fine so I have it up and running, but this is not really the right way I guess and I want to contribute to openSUSE. Can anyone help me?

    Hi
    %cmake isn't a macro, just use cmake.

    You might want to have a look at;
    openSUSE:Build Service cross distribution howto - openSUSE

    Also remove the rm -rf %{buildroot} from the %install section for openSUSE builds.

    The update desktop files is incorrect for openSUSE, see;
    openSUSE:Packaging guidelines - openSUSE specifically openSUSE:Packaging guidelines - openSUSE

    icon updates are done via new macros;
    Code:
    %post
    %desktop_database_post
    %icon_theme_cache_post
    
    %postun
    %desktop_database_postun
    %icon_theme_cache_postun
    openSUSE uses a changes file now so the changelog entries need to be removed from the spec file....

    Thanks for the quick help. I tried to work on the .spec file and to follow the openSUSE guidelines, but there is now a new error message that I don't understand.

    Hi
    Have a look here;
    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Pack...e_desktop_file

    For your categories it's just name1 name2 etc no ";" required.

    I tried to change that, but still no successful build. Maybe it is something more severe?

    Hi
    No, just the order...

    I've fixed you package there were a few bits missing, plus some
    additional stuff that wasn't needed. I created request id 74344 which
    you should see in the WEB interface;
