#14225 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add gdk-pixbuf-xlib to the book

Reported by: Douglas R. Reno Owned by: Douglas R. Reno
Priority: normal Milestone: 10.1
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


This restores the gdk-pixbuf-xlib library, which was dropped from gdk-pixbuf (see Ticket #14224).

Dependent packages include icewm and xscreensaver, at least according to Arch Linux.

This should use the meson standard of building (Meson / Ninja / Ninja Install).

Dependencies include gdk-pixbuf and Xorg Libraries.

This would go into X Libraries.

The dependencies for icewm and xscreensaver will also have to be adapted to handle this change.
