libevas-loader-svg pulls in librsvg and half of gnome/gtk and is therefore ommitted by conscious decision. Case closed :)

libevas-loader-gif pulls in only libgif, but is there really a reason to do so? Why not use .png files?

Replying to spaetz:

ok

libevas-loader-gif pulls in only libgif, but is there really a reason to do so? Why not use .png files?

For images viewers written in Evas?
I'm author of Neon, a Python/EFL image viewer.
Without libevas-loader-gif, Neon can't display GIF images. It's a pity!

You should make it a package suggestion, i.e it's supposed to be in your package's recommendation section. We sholudn't install it by default if it's not used by default, if your package wants it, it should ask for it.

therefore, closing as wontfix.

If i understand it correctly it's about configuration options in evas package, not about packages included in image. Reopening.

comment:9 Changed 8 years ago by spaetz

I just had a look at the OE recipe, and gif is disabled for all distros currently. As soon as someone finds a way to override that or negotiates with the OpenEmbedded? people to change that default, we can include gif.

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

i am trying to use Neon and Podboy, Elementary/EFL - evas based software and without libevas-loader-gif it is pretty useless. You simply don't get to choose what file format will your podcast provided use for the cover or what image you receive via bluetooth. As the software is unusable without it, i am changing it from enhancement into defect again.
