Xiphos - Preferences

If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

Xiphos - Preferences

Postby filozofio » 2014-11-24 09:37

Hello, this is my first question here. After installing Debian Jessie, the Bible program Xiphos comes in a new version: 3.2. But something strange happens: it is not possible to open the Preferences (Menu Edit --> Preferences). I think this is a major bug.

The other Bible program, Bibletime, is no more in the repositories. If i install it from Wheezy, it does not work properly. So we have a important difficulty here.

Anybody knows a way to solve this problem?

I see you've reported the bug twice in the Debian bug tracker and once on the website.
You could also run the command inside a terminal window and see what output is written
in the terminal when you enter the preferences.

Sorry, it was my first time using this bug report system.

Thank you for the answer. I get this message in the terminal:

No biggie. It was great that you've reported the error.
You could send that output to the developer, so they can assess the situation.
You can also try to downgrade to the version of Xiphos in Wheezy and see if the
error is in Xiphos itself or in some library from the Jessie repos.

The wheezy version 3.1.5 has no problem with the preferences, but results in package broken.

The problem seems therefore to be in the application itself, not in the libraries.

In wheezy is Xiphos 3.1.5, while in jessie it is 3.2

I have installed (with Playonlinux) the windows version of Xiphos 3.2

The Windows version (sad to say!) actually opens the Preferences menu. Nevertheless, the opening of this menu fails sometimes, and you get the Preferences only by closing Xiphos and opening it again. Therefore, I think that there is something in the code of this version of Xiphos related to the Preferences.

I have installed Debian Jessie in a i386 machine.

Xiphos has there the same problem: it cannot open the Preferences window.

One test more: I have installed bibletime from Sid. (There is NO bibletime in Jessie, and the bibletime from wheezy does not work very well).

Sid's Bibletime seems to work quite well in Jessie...

It is possible to build Xiphos against GTK+ 2 instead of GTk+ 3 (Jessie's build). Let me see if that makes a difference.

Confirmed: I'm running on a Wheezy base, so had to backport Jessie's libsword first, then edited the build-depends for Xiphos to use the gtk+ 2 versions, and then got a successful build, packaging, and install. Preferences worked.

Note: I don't know if this is normal, but Xiphos wanted me to enter a cipher code for a NET module when I started up. I canceled that, then tested Preferences.

Edited build-depends to use libgtk2, you should also make sure libgtk -3-dev is not installed.

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 9),
libsword-dev (>=1.7.3),
gconf2-common,
rarian-compat,
libgtkhtml3.14-dev,
libgtkhtml-editor-3.14-dev,
libwebkitgtk-dev,
libglade2-dev,
libgconf2-dev,
gnome-doc-utils,
intltool,
libdbus-glib-1-dev,
libgsf-1-dev,
uuid-dev,
libxml2-dev

Thank you very much, stevepusser! It works for me, too.

It is normal that the program asks you to install a bible module, and some of them could be restricted (one is called Bible Net).

I will write here your solution in detail for other people who could be interested:

1. Building packages:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential fakeroot devscripts


2. Sources list

Make sure that in your /etc/apt/sources.list you have the src-deb repositories

I use the pluma editor, may be you need gedit or nano or other instead:

Code: Select all
sudo pluma /etc/apt/sources.list


You should have the lines with the src-deb repositories, for example like this:

Code: Select all
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian jessie contrib non-free main


Or other one depending on your server.

And then:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


3. Uninstall Xiphos:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove xiphos xiphos-data


4. Create a working directory at your home directory:

Code: Select all
mkdir -p src/debian/; cd src/debian


Go to the new directory:

Code: Select all
cd src/debian


5. Get the source code

Code: Select all
apt-get source xiphos


6. Go to the xiphos debian directory:

Code: Select all
cd xiphos-3.2.2+dfsg1


Code: Select all
cd debian


7. Edit the control file:

Code: Select all
pluma control


Make sure you have this build-dependencies:

Code: Select all
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 9),
               libsword-dev (>=1.7.3),
               gconf2-common,
               rarian-compat,
               libgtkhtml3.14-dev,
               libgtkhtml-editor-3.14-dev,
               libwebkitgtk-dev,
          libglade2-dev,
          libgconf2-dev,
               gnome-doc-utils,
               intltool,
          libdbus-glib-1-dev,
          libgsf-1-dev,
          uuid-dev,
               libxml2-dev

Also make sure you don't have the libgtk -3-dev installed.

8. Get the build dependencies

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install debhelper libsword-dev gconf2-common rarian-compat libgtkhtml3.14-dev libgtkhtml-editor-3.14-dev libwebkitgtk-dev libglade2-dev libgconf2-dev gnome-doc-utils intltool libdbus-glib-1-dev libgsf-1-dev uuid-dev libxml2-dev


9. If the build fails, you could be asked for some -dev packages more. You will have the information here:

/src/debian/xiphos-3.2.2+dfsg1/build/config.log



10. Build the packages:

You should be still in /src/debian/xiphos-3.2.2+dfsg/debian

Here you do:

Code: Select all
debuild -uc -us


And then you get the 2 new packages .deb in the directory /src/debian (xiphos and xiphos-data)

11. Install the packages:

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i xiphos-data*.deb


Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i xiphos*.deb


12. I blocked this packages with Synaptic (Menu --> Package --> Block version) to avoid upgrade untill the problem is solved

Re: Xiphos - Preferences

Thanks for the feedback! A few corrections:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get build-dep xiphos


will install the build depends for the unedited Debian version. What I do instead is launch the build command. If I am missing any build-deps, I'll get an error message listing them, then I copy that list and paste it into an apt-get install command, editing out any version info. You just need a string of package names.

For building a package, I just use
Code: Select all
debuild -uc -us


This way you also get some source packages generated also, which can be handy if you have to restart the build and you need clean source packages to start again from. Debuild is provided by the devscripts package.

To avoid the problem of Debian upgrading over your version, you can add or increment the "epoch" of your version in debian/changelog, so if the first line in the file originally says something like

Code: Select all
foo (1.2.3-1)


adding an epoch makes it
Code: Select all
foo (1:1.2.3-1)


The epoch does not affect how the system handles the versioning, except to make it always seen as a higher version than any version without the epoch.

- Thank you very much for your feedback!

1. I have edited my post along your lines. The only thing I could not do was to compile after modifying the changelog file.

2. Karl Kleinpaste, from Xiphos, has posted here: http://sourceforge.net/p/gnomesword/bugs/519/

He thinks the problem is not in GTK3, but in the packaging of Xiphos for GTK3...

Re: Xiphos - Preferences

I'm project admin of Xiphos, and as mentioned, this is pretty clearly a packaging error. I am running a GTK3 build myself right now on Fedora. The clear indication is the error log posted by someone:

(xiphos:1856): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_window_resize: assertion 'GTK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
(xiphos:1856): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance
(xiphos:1856): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_data: assertion 'G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
(and so on...)

The window fails to come into existence, and thereafter there is repetitious "null pointer -- signal connect failed". This is clearly an attempt to instantiate the prefs window when prefs.gtkbuilder (in /usr/share/xiphos) is missing. For GTK2, there is prefs.glade, and prefs.gtkbuilder for GTK3.

Correct the packaging and all will be fine.

And prettyplease don't publicly malign our work on Xiphos without checking directly at https://sourceforge.net/p/gnomesword/bugs/ first. We're a small project and actually quite responsive; the bug list is kept very short. The bug report there https://sourceforge.net/p/gnomesword/bugs/519/ is being closed because the source of this trouble is clear.

No one has done so, or have I missed something?
Also, the poster seems to be inexperienced with bug reports, so I don't think it was their intention to malign you.
