Whats up with the Indicate dep?

Asked by Hund on 2011-06-05

I was going to install the latest version from bzr today. But..

Checking for 'indicate-0.5' >= 0.5.0 : not found
The configuration failed
(complete log in /tmp/clyde-johan/beatbox-bzr/beatbox-bzr/src/beatbox-build/build/config.log)
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Whats up with the Indicate dep? Im not using Ubuntu and I dont want the indicate thingy nor Zeitgeist. What do I do? Finding myself another music player? It seemse like your picking up Ubuntu deps and making Beatbox bloat?

We are working on making these optional.

And I don't see how a few dependencies and a few hundred lines of code for great functionality that is the sound menu support and zeitgeist is bloat.

Thanks! :) For me it is:

$ sudo clyde -S libindicate

And I would never ever install mono.

It should be fixed in rev 200. libindicate, libdbus-menu and zeitgeist are optional now.
