if you read package description, you'll notice that I am aware, but there is a difference, install the GUI version on a PC without graphic brings unnecessary dependencies.

hi vinnie,

i booted microcore base norestore and loaded afterwards your unison-package.
there were some open dependecies that could be resolved by loading Xlibs.tcz and libpng.tcz.
so your package works flawlessly on the basic install without gui.

but don't forget
in the moment the unison-gui.tcz in the repository is just buggy...
and for beginners it 's useless in that state.
just correct the package like mentioned above and add Xlibs.tcz and libpng.tcz to the dep-file...
afterwards you could ask some experienced maintainers, how you could package a second diet package,
without that full-blown dependencies... but that's a second step.
first the buggy package could be corrected, without any problems .

This package is called unison by its author and in other distros. Do not see reason to use different package name.

unison.png is 128x128 pixel while TC requires 48x48 therefore not shown on WBAR.

Sorry, I was wrong. It is not 128x128 pixel but 107x128. Seems that 48x48 is not a requirement today as in the beginning, but NxN is. This is why bottom lines of unison icon are missing on WBAR.

hi bmarkus,

the proposed package of vinnie works fine, perhaps the icon should be a little smaller.
good to know the recommended size of 107x128.

107x128 is a buggy size, not recommended.

so 48x48 is still the recommended standard?

never mind that i remind you, you reached the goal so close...

I was sending the package when it came to mind to test the dependency on libpng.tcz and to me the program starts quietly without this package.

I must insert it or not?  You could motivate your suggestion?

i tested it again and can confirm you the dependency on >microcore base norestore< without gui, 3.8.4.

i think you can take the chance provide a multifunctional package unison.tcz that works also without gui.
that it works also on the cli, this package needs the dependency  to libpng.tcz and Xlibs.tcz.

i tested it in detail:
i booted microcore base norestore in version 3.8.4.
while loading your unison-gui.tcz on the command line interface some errors about missing modules appear:
module error for libpixbufloader-tiff.so
module error for libpixbufloader-png.so
module error for libpixbufloader-jpeg.so
after starting unison on the command line, the error message of a missing libpng.so.0 is reported,
the loading of libpng.tcz resolves this problem.
after starting again unsion on the command line, the error message of a missing libfreetype.so.6 is reported,
the loading of Xlibs.tcz resolves also this problem
and afterwards unison starts without errors!!!

so i recommend these two dependencies to make this >unison.tcz< universal for gui and cli.
and please load it up in both repositories, 3.x and 4.x, and remind the opinion of bmarkus to call it >unison.tcz<.
the icon in 48x48 makes it even better.

ok I sent and now we just have to wait for the publish.

However, I want to take a whim to tell you why I think you're wrong, the current package is fine for those who use both shells and dm, but it is not good for those who do not use any graphical interface.

I do not know any dependencies of compilation without gui (I did not succeed), but I do not think that in a minimal environment there is a space for 12 mb of unnecessary libraries.  ;)

i'm happy that you've uploaded an improved package.
i share your opinion that it's worth to look for ways to install programs with minimal dependencies
and to avoid every single unneeded file in a system.
one goal is to create a package without bugs and at the same time it's multifunctional,
but there could be a second goal to create something like a "diet package",
a package with minimal dependencies and size:
this could be a second alternative in the repository like f.e. unison-cli.tcz.
thank you for your help.
