Package: bluetile
Version: 0.5.1-2
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream patch


This bug doesn't affect sid yet, and probably won't as I can't see
gtk+2.0 being uploaded now that we are frozen.

I'm also ccing Jan (upstream) as the patch probably wants to be
applied there.

Ubuntu, following Debian (in experimental) recently split gdk-pixbuf
out from gtk+2.0 into its own separate package. This means that the
headers aren't found by simply including <gtk/gtk.h> any more. The
correct CFLAGS need to be used. This can be achieved in Cabal by
adding a pkgconfig-depends line, as in my attached patch.

I think this could be committed upstream, but I'm also sending the bug
report to the Debian BTS to keep track. I've uploaded a patched
package to Ubuntu with this fix in place.
