Bug 217: CLOSED

jwm 2.3.7 does not load svg

Date: 2019-03-17 - Creator: madrigal - Priority standard - 5 messages

I have tried the new jwm 2.3.7 package and I think it was compiled with svg 
images disabled or not present, as explained in jwm wiki at 


To build JWM you will need a C compiler (gcc works), X11, and the "development 
headers" for X11 and Xlib. If available and not disabled at compile time, JWM 
will also use the following libraries:

cairo and librsvg2 for SVG icons and backgrounds. 

I have tried to set the path to svg icons with the tag for jwm menu, and they 
wont work as they usually do on other systems, whereas png icons work fine.


Affected package(s): jwm

The previous version of jwm must have shown the same behaviour, because in 
the old and new recipe to compile the package, configure has the parameter 
When updating the package, I did not modify any configure parameters, because I 
do not know what the author of the original recipe had in mind when he set them.

Yes, I forgot to mention that.
version 2.2.0 shown the same behavior, no rsvg enabled, which was a pity 
because most icon themes these days use that format.
If you could include rsvg in the new package, I would be most grateful. :)

At  people.slitaz.org/~HGT
is a package with rsvg enabled.
When Christophe Lincoln, the maintainer of the package, has no objections, it 
can be modified in the repository too.

jwm-2.4.1 from the packages repository has RSVG enabled.
