I'm playing around with RPMs and figured I would try to package something useful for some.
I made an rpm for Mendeley 1.7.1 x64 http://www.mendeley.com/
because they currently give you a tar ball that you have to extract and put in a random directory.... and I hate that.....
That I uploaded
It contains an RPM that has a .fc17.x86. It "works" to my knowledge with F17 and F18 64bit.
I stripped the original tar from any packaged libraries so it is definitely a lighter install than the original one.
I don't really have a fancy test setup so I am counting on your feedback to test if everything works.
If you add it to favorites on Gnome 3 it will create a new icon when it opens... this is not a bug on my end but on Mendeley's end or Gnome 3's end.
- The Link Handler probably doesn't work as of yet. (Mendeley does something really stupid like run the install scripts every time it opens, so I rewrote the run script myself -- which is literally nothing -- but it might not be complete).
