rxvt-unicode 9.06 macosx-clipboard module doesn't work

Reported by: devel@… Owned by: exg (Emanuele Giaquinta)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Carsten Schmidt)
Port: rxvt-unicode


rxvt-unicode comes with a bunch of modules, written in perl that provide rxvt-unicode with enhanced features.

One of those modules 'macosx-clipboard' is meant to provide copy and paste support between the Mac Os X clipboard and X11.

But that module uses "", and this module is only available from the Mac Os X perl installation. Then, when you start rxvt-unicode with that module enabled, the perl interpreter prompts the error: "Can't locate in @INC" and the module isn't loaded.

I've been trying a lot of things to workaround this issue (uninstalling perl from port and trying to build rxvt-unicode against the Mac Os X installation) but untill now the only thing that actually worked was modifying the module so it won't use "".

Attached within this ticket is my version of the module (to be placed in /opt/local/lib/urxvt/perl/)

rxvt-unicode no longer requires system perl for the macosx-clipboard module. The relevant functionality is now provided by Mac::Pasteboard, which I have created a new port for in #26856.

No modifications to macosx-clipboard are necessary.

p5-mac-pasteboard has been committed; see #26856. Does rxvt-unicode now need a dependency on it?

Assigning to new rxvt-unicode maintainer. Is this still relevant or should we close it?

This bug can be closed, urxvt no longer ships the macosx-clipboard extension.
