Description André Klapper 2009-02-14 16:23:51 UTC
libbonobo and libbonoboui are deprecated as per and hence the dependency should be completely removed.

See for example or .

./dasher/Src/Gtk2/dasher_action_speech.cpp:#include <libbonobo.h>
./dasher/Src/ <libbonobo.h>
./dasher/, gnome-speech-1.0 bonobo-activation-2.0 libbonobo-2.0 ORBit-2.0) 
./dasher/, bonobo-activation-2.0 libbonobo-2.0 ORBit-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0 cspi-1.0 atk)
Comment 1 André Klapper 2011-07-22 18:29:15 UTC
./Src/ still includes
   // TODO: This shouldn't need to be here
   #if (defined GNOME_SPEECH || defined GNOME_A11Y)
   #include <libbonobo.h>
and also Src/Gtk2/Speech.h and Src/Gtk2/GnomeSpeech.cpp and mention Bonobo.

How was this fixed?
Comment 2 Patrick Welche 2011-07-22 20:37:58 UTC
Must I break dasher for people who still have bonobo?
Comment 3 André Klapper 2011-07-22 20:44:44 UTC
I don't understand.
I am interested to find out how this was bug fixed, technically speaking...
Comment 4 Patrick Welche 2011-07-22 20:53:41 UTC
bonobo isn't a requirement to run dasher, but say you have an old system which has gnome speech installed, and not speechdispatcher, why shouldn't you be able to still have dasher speak for you?

Maybe I should have set this to "NOTABUG" - is this why I hear incorrect rumours about dasher not being ready for GNOME 3? I felt the need to pop a screenshot of dasher running on GNOME 3 on the dasher gnome live page, as this is becoming ridiculous.
Comment 5 André Klapper 2011-07-24 19:36:31 UTC
I don't care about GNOME3.
The question was if Dasher can be run without any Bonobo, as that is what this report is about. That seems to be the case as per your first words...
