Re: [gDesklets] 0.36.3 leaking memory?!

here is what I did:

in bash:

export PYTHON=python2
cd gdesklets-0.36.3 #go to sources dir

sed -i 's/python -c/$PYTHON -c/' configure
sed -i 's/python/python2/' shell/plugins/PackageInstaller/

./configure --disable-static PYTHON=python2

make;make install

after that i was happily able to compile from distributed 0.36.3 sources without any problems. Actually i also passed --prefix to ./configure script but this doesn't matter ;)

I found these changes to be applied in the gdesklets AUR repo for ArchLinux [ just to not run into any plagiarism issues ;) ]

Thank you Bjoern,

I already tried to fix this yesterday. The problem was that I wasnt able
to compile gdesklets from sources using python 2.7 but i found which
changes I had to apply to the configure script and now it does.
gDesklets is now running with my changes applied, I will report back if
it helped after i observed the behavior for some days of uptime

I hope it worked ;)

Hi Ronny,

this may be it... I found that gdk_pixbuf_scale_simple() returns a
copy... and 'scaled' (in the appropriate line of utils/render.c) seems
to be free'd only if the width or height has changed...
Ah.... OK... this would make sense.

I will try and test it if I find out how to checkout the sources ;)
Just see rev.#142 :

And it looks like the "original" code is still there but just "commented
out" (as if I knew something would be going wrong ;) ).
So you should be able to take the 0.36.3 sources and undo the changes in
utils/render.c made in rev. #142.

Should be easy to do.

Hope that helps.
