Rolled back to gtk2 version of yad

September 15, 2021 — BarryK

EasyOS is staying with the gtk2 version of 'gtkdialog', in fact, I am hanging onto gtk2 apps indefinitely.

Today it was brought to my attention that 'yad', as compiled in OpenEmbedded, is linked with gtk3. There are some issues, for example here:

It was a pleasant surprise that although yad now links with gtk3. the gtk2 version is still maintained, for Fatdog64:

So, I have created a recipe for it in my EasyOS layer in OpenEmbedded, and named the package 'yad0'. Compiled it for amd64 and aarch64, and changed the package-list in woofQ to build with 'yad0' instead of 'yad'.

The maintainer is "step-", don't know who that is. Will have to send him/her a message that his/her maintenance project is now in EasyOS, from version 3.0.
