Yes, I can also confirm that /usr/share/man/mann/busy.n.gz is in extra/tk.

It doesn't build against tcl/tk 8.6.0. I don't have time to check it out, so I wont give you any help.


I've only found a file conflict:
/usr/share/man/mann/busy.n is now in tk package.

@b00rt00s: fine, I've committed your changes. Thanks.

Because I added some patches, so it's better to give You an archive created by 'makepkg --source':

I've added some parches from this package:

I don't know what they really do. I know only that everything works on my system.

One of the patches (bltText.patch) was found on google. It wasn't necessary to compile blt, but there was some errors while running programs using blt.

@b00rt00s: please post your PKGBUILD here

I've recompiled this package with some Fedora Core patches and one found in internet. After it blt works properly. How can I give my PKGBUILD with those patches to The maintainer of this package?

A little update. Command
info commands blt::*
Doesn't show anything.

I don't know if I have a proper installation of blt because one of my program that should use but doesn't work. It complains that graph command is not found. I checked on the home page of this program that it uses a following command:
%blt::graph .g
but when I run it I get following error:

invalid command name "blt::graph"

After running command:
%package require BLT
I got:


Can anybody tell me what is wrong? Does my installation is proper?
