#1013 closed defect (needinfo)

ubuntu wily is not installing config files in /etc/xpra

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 0.16
Component: packaging Version:
Keywords: ubuntu Cc:


I have repeatedly installed and removed the package, both via apt-get and directly with dpkg.

The files are present in the package, as can be seen with:

  • dpkg -c
    dpkg -c xpra-0.15.8-1_amd64.deb | grep /etc/xpra/
  • after installation with: dpkg -L:
    dpkg -L xpra

Both commands will list:


Watching /etc/xpra during the install, I can see briefly some temporary files getting created there: xpra.conf.dpkg-new and xorg.conf.dpkg-new.

Recording this ticket here in case someone else sees this.

The packages are built exactly the same way, and they work fine on all the other distros and versions... Looks like more Ubuntu breakage.

I have no interest in fixing this at the moment.
