[Pkg-e-devel] Bug#626009: Should suggest evas-engine

Firstly, thanks for packaging this, I'm thrilled to try out what the
Enlightenment team has created. For that reason, I installed python-evas and
started toying with it. However, none of the examples I tried worked, and that
for the simple reason that I didn't have any rendering engines installed. I'd
"Suggests: libevas1-engines-core|libevas1-engines-x" or something like that.
Alternatively, I'd maybe add a "Provides: libevas1-engine" to these two
packages and a "Depends: libevas1-engine" to libevas1, but I guess you will
find the best way to assure that at least some engine can be loaded.
BTW: There is a bug in libevas1 that it reports all possible engines in
evas_render_method_list(), even those that are not installed and that can't be
loaded. Only when trying to load one it returns zero, but the Python wrapper
doesn't interpret that as error. These two separate issues contributed to my
problems getting things to run. Forcing me to install at least one engine
would have helped me a lot!
