I just did a new build of TDE (git sources from today) on my custom Linux from Scratch system. I don’t have CUPS,
I don’t print, I despise printers, don’t have one and have no use for them (well, maybe ballistics targets). Cups
is not going to be a dependency on my system.
I am passing -DWITH_CUPS=OFF to all the builds (AFAIK it’s only valid for tdelibs, ignored everywhere else).
Now, when starting tde I get a KJobViewer error dialog with:
“There was an error loading tdeprint_cups. The diagnostic is:
Library files for “tdeprint_cups.la http://tdeprint_cups.la” not found in paths.”
Not just once, but twice.
There is no setting to disable tdeprint as far as I can see. There is no tdeprint_cups.la http://tdeprint_cups.la
I have never had this annoyance before. Unless I can find a way to get it to stop, I’m going to restore a backup of
my previous tde build. I have already tried renaming kjobviewer but then I get 3 error messages Creating a bogus
tdeprint_cups.la http://tdeprint_cups.la just causes the error dialogs to have blank diagnostic message.
Any ideas for a temporary workaround (compile time or run time trickery)? I can’t have those error dialogs.
I guess it had been a while since I did a build on this system. I figured it out, it was this:
tdeprint: autostart of KJobViewer is now controlled by a .desktop file.
With the introduction of the autostart desktop file, it was invoking KJobViewer which wasn’t happy without tdeprint_cups.
I simply removed /opt/trinity/share/autostart/kjobviewer-autostart.desktop and it will bother me no more.
I guess I should have looked at the git change history, but I was hoping someone knew offhand what might have done it.
