[Pkg-e-devel] Bug#626009: Should suggest evas-engine

Package: libevas1
Version: 1.0.0-1


Firstly, thanks for packaging this, I'm thrilled to try out what the 
Enlightenment team has created. For that reason, I installed python-evas and 
started toying with it. However, none of the examples I tried worked, and that 
for the simple reason that I didn't have any rendering engines installed. I'd 
"Suggests: libevas1-engines-core|libevas1-engines-x" or something like that. 
Alternatively, I'd maybe add a "Provides: libevas1-engine" to these two 
packages and a "Depends: libevas1-engine" to libevas1, but I guess you will 
find the best way to assure that at least some engine can be loaded.

BTW: There is a bug in libevas1 that it reports all possible engines in 
evas_render_method_list(), even those that are not installed and that can't be 
loaded. Only when trying to load one it returns zero, but the Python wrapper 
doesn't interpret that as error. These two separate issues contributed to my 
problems getting things to run. Forcing me to install at least one engine 
would have helped me a lot!

Thank you!
