Is there a package for gtk-oxygen compiled in debug mode?

Asked by Robert Simmons on 2011-08-05

I am working on figuring out a bug in LibreOffice that has emerged since KDE 4.7.0 came out. I was asked to recompile gtk-oxygen in debug mode to track down where the problem is.

Is there a Kubuntu package compiled in debug mode already available somewhere?

From an unrelated output there (german page March 2011)

found in second output:


If unsure It might be better to ask in kubuntu or kde forums.

I don't follow what you mean. The first reply you gave is a german thread about another topic. The second part: I don't see those packages in any repositories. And the dev tutorials don't cover oxygen.

Perhaps, just tell me yes or no whether there is a debian or ubuntu package for gtk2-engines-oxygen that is compiled in debug mode.

Or could you point me to a help file or FAQ for recompiling the package myself, but with debug.

I am used to FreeBSD, where recompiling a package the way you want is as simple as changing the flags in the port's config files and typing make. :)

Yep, #1 mentioned already the page is german and unrelated while searching for packages since I don't use kde.
Dev tutorials cover compiling. And also obviously the READ.ME as mentioned by#8 in Bug 279226.

Ok, that's clear. Thanks.
