#4479 closed defect (fixed)

lxde-common requires lsb_release as a runtime dependency

Reported by: WilliamImm Owned by: Fernando de Oliveira
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: major Keywords:


Without the lsb_release program, lxde-logout will crash when you try to run it (meaning, you can't log out out of an LXDE session). Installing lsb_release as per the book will let lxde-logout bring up the logout window, as expected.

And before you ask, yes, I have no idea why the lxde-logout program depends specifically on lsb_release. Just that it does.

Actually, it's lxsession that requires lsb_common for some reason. lxde-logout is just a wrapper script. Also, I manged to figure out why lxsession requires lsb_common: to get the distro version. So, question solved.

I'm not the same person as William Harrington on the mailing lists, by the way. My last name starts with an I, not a H. Just as there isn't a One Steve Limit, there isn't a One William Limit.

Sorry about that, William I. That was a nice reading. I will try to fix where I can.
