Patching pithos for Mageia 7

Postby jiml8 » Dec 16th, '19, 01:15

If you are using Pithos (installed from flatpak) you may have noticed that it does not work in Mageia 7.

Turns out this is easily handled.

As root, cd into /usr/local/share/pithos/pithos

Edit the file pithos.py.

Comment out line 127, and save. Now Pithos will work.

Specifically, change this:
Code: Select all
            Gdk.cairo_set_source_pixbuf(ctx, self.background, cell_area.x, cell_area.y)

to this:
Code: Select all
#            Gdk.cairo_set_source_pixbuf(ctx, self.background, cell_area.x, cell_area.y)


Deleting the line also will work. I chose to not delete it because of the possibility that a later update to python will allow this function to work again. Doubt it, but you never know.
