LPub4 for Linux, 4th iteration

LPub4 is a program by Kevin Clague for creating high-quality instructions for Lego models. It runs on OS X and Windows. I ported it to Linux a while ago.

I have updated the patches for current versions of LPub4 and packaged it for Fedora 19.

LPub4 needs to know where to find the LDraw parts library and the ldview executable. Its configuration file is ~/.config/LPub/LDraw Building Instruction Tool.conf which (assuming you are using my package of the LDraw parts library and my package of LDView) you can edit to contain:

[General]
LDrawDir=/usr/share/ldraw
LDView=/usr/bin/ldview
PreferredRenderer=LDView
PliControl=/usr/share/lpub/pli.mpd

The .spec file shows how it was created, the *.patch files are the modifications I made, the .x86_64.rpm file (other than debuginfo) is the one to install, and the .src.rpm contains everything so it can be rebuilt for another rpm-based distribution.
