(05:23:27 PM) \u03b5: z-man: is there a better place than sysinstall.in to put post-install scripts that can't go to DESTDIR?
(05:24:20 PM) Pnoexz: /usr/bin!
(05:24:52 PM) \u03b5: no, that's only to be run once, no need to pollute */bin
(05:25:13 PM) Pnoexz: what do you want to run?
(05:25:19 PM) Pnoexz: out of curiosity
(05:25:54 PM) \u03b5: xdg-desktop-menu install, xdg-mime install
(05:26:24 PM) Pnoexz: is xdg-mime what i think it is?
(05:26:28 PM) Pnoexz: armagetronad://?
(05:26:41 PM) \u03b5: yeah, it's actually pretty easy to set up now
(05:26:47 PM) Pnoexz: noice
(05:27:27 PM) \u03b5: it treats armagetronad:// as a x-scheme-handler/armagetronad "file" and it goes on from there
(05:27:42 PM) Pnoexz: ******* awesome
(05:28:13 PM) \u03b5: you set up an x-scheme-handler/armagetronad mime to give a name for the thing and a .desktop for the handler to go with it
(05:32:43 PM) Pnoexz: nice
(06:37:38 PM) z-man: and for me, no, sysinstall is the place for post-install stuff.
(06:37:59 PM) z-man: It's our only one, so it's by definition the best
(06:38:19 PM) \u03b5: yeah, there were just all the comments at the start... should probably change that then
(06:40:02 PM) \u03b5: about that, I assume it's only because it's legacy code that we're not using xdg-desktop-menu to install our menu entry?
(06:40:33 PM) z-man: As far as I can tell, the comments are all still valid.
(06:40:56 PM) z-man: And yeah, probably. Either that or because I haven't heard of xdg-desktop-menu.
(06:41:22 PM) \u03b5: yeah it's fairly new (few years old)
(06:41:34 PM) \u03b5: any distro looking to package a new release will probably have it
(06:41:42 PM) z-man: Perfectly fine to throw out the old stuff on 0.4 then.
(06:41:59 PM) \u03b5: it's freedesktop.org's attempt to standardise all that stuff
(06:42:14 PM) \u03b5: just gotta hope gnome doesn't throw it out of the window for whatever reason
(06:42:34 PM) z-man: And if they don't have it, tough luck. No menu entries is not what I consider critical.
(06:42:57 PM) \u03b5: also that means armagetronad:// will work on most linux systems then
