libguniqueapp is not available

Asked by Richard Hughes

libguniqueapp is the new way to impliment a GNOME single instance application. gnome-power-manager uses libguniqueapp for a couple of things, and also it is being added to other gnome projects at a fast rate. It is expected that GNOME 2.17 development will require this module (in one form or another) as an optional dependency.

You can use the 0.5 release from or probably best is to use CVS (gnome module libguniqueapp) as this contains lots of build fixes by myself and Elijah Newren.

Give me a shout if you want a 0.6 tarball to package as this can be arranged trivially. I'm lost making debs (although I'm learning fast) so I think I better leave this to a person who's experienced in making libraries.

You might want to contact the Masters Of The Universe directly to talk about this. I guess they'd be best placed to help you.
