These don't make sense ↑. The amount of icons included also seems excessive. For KDE and Gnome all uage scenario are covered with 16x16, 22x22, 24x24 and scalable (svg).

    The Brasero trash files also cause theinstall to fail is Brasero is installed.

    I did a little digging into the .deb package. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with Debian based systems to know how packages are created and more specifically, how yours was made.

    I ran into some problems with this on my Ubuntu 7.10 system. I have the brasero Ubuntu package installed whose desktop application file is also /usr/share/applications/brasero.desktop. You should rename your desktop application file to handbrakegtk.desktop. Because of the file name collision dpkg won't install your deb if Brasero is also installed.

    You should also remove the backup files (files ending in ~) from the package inventory. They are automatically created by some text editors and don't show in Nautilus unless you show hidden files (Ctrl+h).

    As for the icons, I don't see a problem with you including all those resolutions, however It would be good to make the file names consistent with the application name: handbrake -> handbrakegtk

    Thanks for your hard work in building this app. I'm happy to help any way I can.

    Yes, I agree, and since I wanted to install this app so bad, I decided to modify your deb file so that I could install it in Ubuntu. I just:
    - Deleted the auto-generated back-up files (*~)
    - Renamed the menu shortcut to handbrakegtk.desktop
    - Fixed the dependencies so that it now looks for mono-gmcs, mono-2.0-devel, gtk-sharp2 (instead of the non-existent mono, mono-devel).

    I've tested it under Ubuntu 8.10 and everything seems to work just fine!

    You can download it from here: http://www.drop.io/handbrakegtk

    By the way, I do believe you have a ridiculous number of icons in this package, a nice big .png file should function identically to what you have.

    And of course, thanks for the great app, it's just what I needed!

    Crap, meant to say tested under Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)
