* typeerrors.patch: Fix two cases of attempting to pass floats to

change the cursor into a hand when over a URL (LP: #923363). 
- In the button-press-event callback of the buttons making up the
board, which should produce an arrow to allow tiles to be placed by
typing letters.

* debian/rules: pass --prefix=/usr to install, without which

pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu2) jaunty; urgency=low
* Revert the previous change; python2.4-zodb no longer exists, and
depending on python2.4-zodb never gave correct results anyway because
we were depending on python instead of python2.4 for the interpreter.
* debian/pyscrabble-{common,server}.install: installation now to python
dist-packages directory, instead of site-packages.  (This will require
a fix for bug 350016 in python2.6 before it can be built.)
2008-08-29 - Riccardo Coccioli <>
pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low
* Modify dependency python-zodb to python2.4-zodb in debian/control
for the python-zodb -> python2.4-zodb transition (LP: #262713)
