LDraw parts list and programs in Debian - any more programs wanted?
July 08, 2013 01:35AM
Hi,

I recently packaged the LDraw parts library, Brickutils, LdGLite and LDView for Debian. They are uploaded on mentors.debian.net so that they can be reviewed for inclusion in Debian and later Ubuntu and other derivatives (like Mint).

- ldraw-parts http://bugs.debian.org/714999 https://mentors.debian.net/package/ldraw-parts
- brickutils http://bugs.debian.org/715053 https://mentors.debian.net/package/brickutils
- ldglite http://bugs.debian.org/715053 https://mentors.debian.net/package/ldglite
- ldview http://bugs.debian.org/715280

The package ldraw-parts contains the CC-BY licensed part of the LDraw parts library and installs them into /usr/share/ldraw-parts. The last three packages where patched to work on Debian and use the parts provided by the ldraw-parts package.

The work was done under the umbrella of the DebianDesigners group. See https://wiki.debian.org/LegoDesigners

I was now attempting to package LPub4 but while it compiles fine the parts are wrongly scaled (individual parts filling half the page). The sourceforge repository doesnt list any activity for the past two years and the posted bugs are not commented upon. Is the project dead?

Besides informing you about these activities I have a question for you as a community: What other tools do you find essential to be packaged for Debian and its derivative? Please only list mature projects which are not abandoned and are known to not become abandoned in the foreseable future. Please also only list software which is used a lot by the community and not a niche project. I must ask these questions as I'm new to LDraw and only just registered in this forum.

cheers, josch
