To answer further questions, I’m building this version because I’m not able to get the lisp menu displayed in version 1.9.1. Not sure it will work, even if I can build it, because I still have rep-gtk and librep I used to build version 1.9.1 - which I’m trying to replace with version 1.6.1 (since this version works fine under 12.1).
In the meantime, I found what the problem was with version 1.9.1 (the one I branched from X11:windowmanagers repo). It doesn’t install rep-gtk. That’s why menus don’t work. They should just add rep-gtk to the dependencies.
Is there not a ‘simple’ way to submit a patch to a package in OBS? … like clicking on ‘submit patch’ for example. Anyway, this should fix this problem.
Please don’t ask me to use osc. I don’t have time to learn it, I swear.
Do you have to write a bug report just to add a line in a spec file? Pfffff… I’m afraid so.
Before I was able to fix version 1.9.1, I decided to move version 1.6.1 to a subproject - since I managed to build it locally. I linked librep and rep-gtk from my home project, and this seems to be OK. However it doesn’t find a bunch of devel packages.
How come it doesn’t find this when building from a subproject? (it worke before, as I had the package in the main project).
The problem is not using the command line or a vi editor (I don’t do anything else but using vi all the time). It’s setting up the account, etc. I tried once and it didn’t work. But the OBS server wasn’t working either at this time.

See what I mean? If I need to create a user account on a local machine here to match the name that I use in obs, it’s going to be complicated.
