sdl_gfx sdl_ttf is needed, gtk2 is not always installed

debian itself is gtk dependent, you won't put "linux" or "gcc"/"gcc-libs" on a package dependency array. You could, but it's a waste of time because they are included with the system installation

Hmm, the debian freeciv-sdl package doesn't have any gtk depencys.

when you run it over firefox (for example) it also doesn't shows GTK, but, you know it uses GTK

Is this not just the reason for the sdl version instead of the regular gtk version?
When you run ldd on freeciv-sdl you see no GTK: (0x00007ffff398c000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e917000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e619000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e3c9000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071e130000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071df14000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071dcf7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071da58000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d6ab000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d49b000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d285000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f071d081000)

sorry by repost:

it is also a graphics interface, but, graphics means the game texturesm etc. The game buttons and generic inteface to interact whit it keeps being gtk2

jorge_barroso commented on 2013-03-01 00:40

because it's graphic interface is gtk2, sdl is a sound interface.


Thaodan commented on 2013-03-01 00:21

So why don't remove gtk2 as depency?

jorge_barroso commented on 2013-02-27 15:34

No Thaodan, this package includes their own client, try it :)
to run in terminal or if you can't find it, the bin name is "freeciv-sdl"


Thaodan commented on 2013-02-27 15:01

As the gtk client isn't build. its not needed as depency?
