geda-gaf 1.6.0 complains about missing update-desktop-database

Reported by: michael@… Owned by: emer@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.8.1
Keywords: Cc:
Port: geda-gaf


update-desktop-database is part of the desktop-file-utils port, which geda-gaf does not list as a dependency. Installing desktop-file-utils before geda-gaf resulted in the following error:

Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: /opt/local/share/mime/aliases
already exists and does not belong to a registered port.  Unable to activate port geda-gaf.

A simple workaround is to install the geda-gaf port with xdg database updating disabled:

port install geda-gaf configure.args=--disable-update-xdg-database

I increased the port's revision in r61734 because this changes what files are installed by the port.
