Some apps rely on these outdated libs though, it's up to them to replace the libs with newer ones.

here it looks like both, gnome-vfs, gnome-vfs-nosmb should be replaced by GIO:

@bartus Sounds good. I added the patch. Please let me know if something goes wrong :)

bartus commented on 2019-12-17 12:56 (UTC)

It's stated in /usr/include/samba-4.0/libsmbclient.h

                 * remove a server if unused
                 * DEPRECATED:
                 * Use smbc_getFunctionRemoveUnusedServer(),
                 * smbc_setFunctionCheckServer()
        smbc_remove_unused_server_fn remove_unused_server_fn DEPRECATED_SMBC_INTERFACE;

Without this patch we left with unresolved symbol in

$ ldd -r /usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/ |grep undefined
undefined symbol: smbc_remove_unused_server     (/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/

@bartus. I'm not familiar with the smbc_remove_unused_server patch. Could you explain in more detail why I should include the linked patch into this package?

Shouldn't there be a patch for deprecated smbc_remove_unused_server

fails on latest build -

/usr/include/zlib.h:34:10: fatal error: zconf.h: No such file or directory 34 | #include "zconf.h" | ^~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. make[2]: *** [Makefile:930: gzip-method.lo] Error 1

Thanks for the feedback @PhotonX. gamin is quite small and I don't see harm in including gamin if it helps applications which depend on gnome-vfs.

Added gamin to depends() array.

PhotonX commented on 2019-05-18 05:41 (UTC)

Is it possibly missing gamin as dependency? gnome-vfs-nosmb lists gamin as a dependency.

Without gamin I get errors when running Shutter:

libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Cannot load module `/usr/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/' ( Can not open the shared object file: file or directory not found) at /usr/bin/shutter line 5168.
