Description Will B 2015-11-12 07:33:03 UTC
Greetings, Please enable '--with-gtk=2.0' and '--with-python' on this package. I cannot use this package as-is with py27-gtk because of these missing options. If you cannot enable these by default, can you please fix the ports files so these options can be selected through `make config` when building from the ports tree? I cannot use this package at all without being able to enable these options, and must build from external sources and the resulting package crashes constantly. Thank you! :-)
Comment 1 Kubilay Kocak 2015-11-12 08:23:00 UTC
Thanks for your report Will. @Maintainer, alternatively, python/gtk2 sub ports might be possible if they cant or shouldn't be bundled within the one port/package.
Comment 2 Walter Schwarzenfeld 2018-01-12 13:39:49 UTC
Is this still relevant? (Makefile shows USES=gtk30, but not python). If not, please close this PR.
Comment 3 Ting-Wei Lan 2018-01-12 16:16:10 UTC
(In reply to w.schwarzenfeld from comment #2) Makefile has --without-python. I think what the reporter want is a new port or a flavor of gtk-vnc that is built with GTK+ 2. The net/gtk-vnc port currently only supports GTK+ 3. GTK+ 3 version uses GObject introspection for its python binding, so there is no need to support python directly in gtk-vnc itself and I think it is why it uses --without-python.
Comment 4 Yuri Victorovich 2018-01-12 18:26:12 UTC
The port option GTK2 should be added, IMO.
Comment 5 Yuri Victorovich 2018-01-12 18:27:46 UTC
Possibly, python binding should be a separate package.
Comment 6 Roman Bogorodskiy 2018-03-24 16:00:48 UTC
(In reply to Yuri Victorovich from comment #5) As of gtk-vnc 0.7.2, python binding is deprecated and will be removed in the next release , I think it doesn't make much sense to add support for it now. I've submitted a PR  that updates the port to 0.7.2 and allows to switch between GTK2 and GTK3. 1: https://www.berrange.com/posts/2018/03/23/announce-gtk-vnc-0-7-2-release/ 2: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=226895
