astromenace (1.3.2+repack-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add patch debian/patches/disable_GL_ARB_texture_compression_bptc.patch:
After disabling GL_ARB_texture_storage in patch
fix_work_on_intel_videocards.patch GL_ARB_texture_compression_bptc feature
may work incorrectly with new NVIDIA and AMD video cards. There are no bug
reports yet. This patch was made just in case by developer recommendation.
2013-12-19 - Boris Pek <>
astromenace (1.3.2+repack-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add patch debian/patches/fix_work_on_intel_videocards.patch:
Mesa developers have enabled GL_ARB_texture_storage for all drivers [1], so
i915 and i965 drivers now claim the support of this OpenGL extension, but
texture storage feature does not actually work there.
This patch is just workaround to make the game work on intel videocards with
new Mesa. But real problem should be fixed in Mesa.
(Closes: #718680)

- rename root directory for specifying program version
* Update patches:
- debian/patches/compress_gamedata.patch
- debian/patches/debian_customisations.patch
* Add patch debian/patches/enable_fontconfig_support.patch.

fonts-linuxlibertine now.

2013-07-01 - Boris Pek <>
astromenace (1.3.1+repack-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Add temporary patch debian/patches/08_do_not_touch_home_dir.patch:
Without this patch AstroMenace creates directory ~/.config/astromenace/
during generation of gamedata.vfs file. When sudo is used for package
installation, this created directory is owned by root, so game settings
cannot be saved by user. (LP: #1181847)
* Add xz-utils to astromenace dependencies. (Closes: #714609)
* Fix lintian note desktop-entry-lacks-keywords-entry.
