Public bug reported:

Affects: upstream ubp-hoary-unofficial
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: Medium
         Status: New

Hi everybody,

having some problems with the Backports servers these days i used my nice old
standard Ubuntu and downloaded the package gnome-art and gnome-splashscreen by
hand from http://mirror.brianpuccio.net/ubuntu-backports-repository/

I installed it via dpkg -i and it gave me unresolved dependencies which were
wuiet easy to fix. But then i started gnome-art and nothing happened. Starting
it from the command line gave me:

andre at gremLin:~$ gnome-art
`require': No such file to load -- rexml/document (LoadError)
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/gnome_art.rb:23:in `require'
        from /usr/bin/gnome-art:22:in
        from /usr/bin/gnome-art:22

The solution was to install librexml-ruby1.8.

I think there might be a problem with the dependency in the package.

I never have packaged any debs so i am not coming up with a real solution but i
thought i should share.
