           Summary: Gnome-mag is not built with the XDamage extensions.
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-mag
        AssignedTo: debzilla at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: themuso at themuso.com

The gnome-mag package is capable of being built against the XDamage extensions
for fullscreen magnification. Unfortunately, the Ubuntu package is not built
with this X extension.

libxdamage-dev needs to be added as a dependancy for gnome-mag, however some
editing of the configure.in file is needed in order to get the configure script
to find the header files needed to build support for the extension. The library
itself is found, but during the build, /usr/include/X11/extensions is not
referenced. This is the case both on Breezy, and Dapper.

The relevant parts of the config.log and the make step are included for further
