Could we replace Zenity with lightweight alternative?
I am having this debian-11-minimal template without Zenity installed and just found out “Qubes Backup restore” needs Zenity that is executed from /etc/qubes-rpc/qubes.SelectFile to select a file.
In my case Installing
- Zenity will install 225 packages and need 492MB disk space.
- Yad will install 34 packages and need 77MB disk space.
The need to install half a gigabyte to display the dialog seems disk space excessive to me. The reason seems to be mentioned in this comment
I tried to replace
exec zenity --title="Qubes" --file-selection
in /etc/qubes-rpc/qubes.SelectFile with
exec yad --title="Select file" --file
and it works.
I dont see any other script in /etc/qubes-rpc/ that would need zenity.
Are there any other reason which would make use of Zenity that would block using alternative like Yad?
