Description sigsys 2020-10-01 23:59:51 UTC
The path for pixmap files in misc.c doesn't match where they end up being installed:

#ifndef PIXMAP_ROOTDIR                                                        
#define PIXMAP_ROOTDIR "/usr/share/pixmaps/"       

This makes the "iconHint" resource not work (when attempting to set it explicitly).  It always fallsback to default because it can't find the file.

Comment 1 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2020-10-02 15:50:53 UTC
Good catch. I am patching it for now.

Thomas, do you think you could set the patch based on a configure flag?

  Fix hardcoded pixmap directory path

Comment 4 sigsys 2020-10-02 19:17:31 UTC
I tried to find a better way to fix it too.  What's interesting is that the pixmap path is set correctly in the man page.  The configure script detects it and substitutes it there.

I tried to make it use that path in misc.c but I couldn't figure it out.

The multiple CF_PATH_SYNTAX() calls are because each invocation only expands one layer of nested variable references (and in this case there are many).  Would be better if CF_PATH_SYNTAX() had a loop that expanded variables until there are no more.

This sets PIXMAP_ROOTDIR correctly in xtermcfg.h but I can't get it to build after running autoreconf.  I'm not too familiar with autoconf so dunno if I'm doing something dumb there.  It fails to build because it doesn't detect xaw the same way.  Apparently xterm always needs some kind of xaw library, be that the regular xaw or xaw3d/xaw3dxft.  With the old configure script, it has HAVE_LIB_XAW defined to 1 in xtermcfg.h.  With the regenerated configure script, HAVE_LIB_XAW is undefined and that makes it not include some header files later on and then there are references to undeclared identifiers (scrollbarWidgetClass, simpleMenuWidgetClass).  Don't know if that's because it's not the same autoconf version or what.

I was experiencing the same thing you've described.

I tried to use autoreconf:

#USES=          cpe localbase ncurses tar:tgz xorg
USES=           cpe localbase ncurses tar:tgz xorg autoreconf

but I noticed that different autoconf versions are used:

The new autoconf version seems to open another can of worms.
Comment 6 Thomas E. Dickey 2020-10-03 19:57:48 UTC
The symbol PIXMAPDIR which is substituted in the Makefile could be used,
e.g., adding -DPIXMAP_ROOTDIR=\"@PIXMAPDIR@\" to the CPPFLAGS line.
Comment 7 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2020-10-04 08:36:59 UTC
That would be helpful.
Comment 8 Thomas E. Dickey 2020-10-04 09:14:41 UTC
I've added it to my to-do list (and expect it in #361 in a week or so).
At the moment I'm investigating this:
