-> Installing wxgtk-common will remove: wxwidgets-common (wxgtk-common)

Ok folks, unfortunately the barrydesktop control panel doesn't seem to work properly anymore. It compiles, but when you try and launch it you get a window that consists of no content, you get only the window decorations. Therefore, I've disabled compilation of barrydesktop in the PKGBUILD now.

This shouldn't cause too much of a problem because barrydesktop wasn't terribly useful. It was mainly barrybackup and the commandline tools that were useful and these still work fine. What I have done is added a barrybackup desktop entry so that this can still be launched graphically - the barrydesktop entry is now no longer installed of course.

Hope this is acceptable for everybody. Any problems, let me know.

EDIT: I've now added the 99-blackberry-perms.rules udev file to make barrybackup work properly when launched as a regular user.

Thanks for the heads up cmc :) Fixed now.

Builds like a charm but needs additional dependency libxml++2.6

Sorry, but what do you mean by "the patches are missing"?

The patches are missing. I removed them from the PKGBUILD, but then I get a build failure. I tried changing the package to the .tar.bz2 version, but it also fails.

Well I get this: local/arch:@/tmp/.ICE-unix/1476,unix/arch:/tmp/.ICE-unix/1476 Apparently it's something that should be set by the DE or WM. But actually, I don't think it's the problem in this case because I tried running barrydesktop in TWM which doesn't set SESSION_MANAGER and I didn't get a segfault. I'm afraid I'm not really sure what more I can do to help at this point - I can't reproduce the segfault under any conditions. You probably want to get strace and gdb output to find out what's really going on when barry crashes and then see if anyone in the forums can help you or possibly upstream. If there's anything that comes up that I can implement then please let me know and thanks for reporting that build failure.

echo $SESSION_MANAGER returns nothing (empty) I'm using awesome WM and I don't know what should be in SESSION_MANAGER

The lines regarding wxgtk and opensync are not significant. I think it's the session manager line that's important. What does echo $SESSION_MANAGER return?

It builds :) Thank you But I get seg fault : I don't know why
