PCManFM-Mod Packages Rebuilt

The Debian/Ubuntu packages for PCManFM-Mod 1.2.3 have been rebuilt to correct several issues. Previously, there was a problem with gamin being used in lieu of fam. Also, several unnecessary build dependencies have been removed from the package dependencies, and package version requirements on the libraries have been relaxed to make the packages as flexible as possible. I have successfully tested the new packages on the latest version of Ubuntu with gamin and no hal, as well as on Aptosid.

The source tarball for version 1.2.3 has been repackaged, with the only changes being in the debian subfolder.

The PPA has been updated with the new packages, but the debian version number isn’t incremented. If PCManFM-Mod is working okay you need do nothing. If you want the new package, you may need to remove pcmanfm-mod, clean the package cache (apt-get clean), update (apt-get update), and reinstall pcmanfm-mod.

Here is the current dependency information for pcmanfm-mod:
Depends: dbus, desktop-file-utils, libc6, libcairo2, libdbus-1-3, libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0, libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0, libpango1.0-0, libstartup-notification0, libx11-6, shared-mime-info, gamin | fam, libfam0, hal, libhal-storage1, libhal1, libdbus-glib-1-2
Recommends: gnome-icon-theme
Suggests: ktsuss, gksu

And for pcmanfm-mod-nohal:
Depends: dbus, desktop-file-utils, libc6, libcairo2, libdbus-1-3, libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0, libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0, libpango1.0-0, libstartup-notification0, libx11-6, shared-mime-info, gamin | fam, libfam0
Recommends: gnome-icon-theme
Suggests: ktsuss, gksu

To clarify, all packages require that either fam or gamin be installed, and that libfam0 be provided (libgamin0 provides libfam0). For more information on issues you may encounter when installing fam see Debian Bug #348563 (unless you’re doing something unusual, you should not have those problems).

Ubuntu users will generally want to use one of the ‘pcmanfm-mod-nohal’ packages, as Ubuntu no longer includes hal.
