xdg-puppy imported to OE

June 09, 2017 — BarryK
Took a few hours, have imported 'xdg-puppy' into OpenEmbedded. It also required 'gnome-menus'.

I imported xdg-puppy into T2 a couple of years ago:
http://www.t2-project.org/packages/xdg_puppy.html

OE is a more difficult situation than T2, the makefiles do not work, had to setup $CC, $CFLAGS and $LDFLAGS especially.

xdg-puppy source latest now version 0.7.8:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/sources/alphabetical/x/xdg_puppy-0.7.8.tar.gz

Still using an old version of gnome-menus, as later versions were found to not follow the XDG specification for inline menus. Version 2.14.3:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/sources/alphabetical/g/gnome-menus-2.14.3.tar.bz2

A OE tarball with latest customization layer is expected to be uploaded soon.

Have imported 'ijs' and 'cups-filters' to OE.

Note, cups-filters was split off from the cups project sometime ago, but it isn't in OE. Strange. It provides important functionality for printing.
