Bug#456447: freeguide: missing dependency, needs file
package freeguide
severity 456447 normal
tag 456447 confirmed

Freeguide does not yet work with the GNU Java interpreter. I suspect
the bugs you plan on filing will simply boil down to "does not work
with GNU Java interpreter". In which case, I'd suggest you simply file
one bug.

Freeguide itself does not depend on libgcj7-awt, however the GNU Java
interpreter does if you want to use the Swing GUI library. Since
Freeguide can be used with any compatible Java interpreter, your
problem is not specific to Freeguide. For what it's worth, the package
libgcj7-1 does recommend the package libgcj7-awt.

The problem you've recognized is real, but the solution isn't straight
forward. Perhaps there's a need for a virtual java-swing package that
is provided by libgcj7-awt and any other Java VM package that provides
Swing. I've cc'ed this email to the Debian Java team for their input.
