the latest rezzme now contains the necessary code to build debian/ubuntu dpkgs — making it as easy to install rezzme packages on the latest debian/ubuntu systems as it already is for windows and mac OSX machines as the dpkg format allows me to explicitly specify the prerequisites (such as PyQt4).
while working on the dpkg support i also found out that debian/ubuntu has the very useful
rezzme: URI scheme. that along with gnome’s gconf tool gives us the same seamless rezzme user experience as on windows or mac OSX — unfortunately, it seems that nothing comparable exists for redhat/fedora based systems.1
also the windows build code has been cleaned up and the no longer required dependency on setuptools removed.
at least i couldn’t find anything comparable; if you know how to do this — independent of minor version upgrades of firefox and thunderbird — i’d appreciate it very much to learn about that. ↩
