when using seed 3.0.0-1 by including <seed-module.h> a compilation error occurs.
/usr/include/seed-gtk3/seed-module.h:23:29: fatal error: ../libseed/seed.h: No such file or directory
changing the include in this line to "seed.h" fixes the problem, since the dir structure has changed obviously.

Additional info:
Package version: 3.0.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
install seed from extra;
include header in a c program
This task depends upon

what is your compilation command?

i guess you didn't used the right flags. just for record, you need to use pkg-config seed --cflags to get them

This is obviously an upstream bug in the seed-module.h includefile. The file includes "../libseed/seed.h", which is right when seed-module is still inside the source tarball. As there's no libseed directory in the installed package file, the seed.h file isn't found when seed-module.h is included.

Looking at documentation, seed-module.h is a public header that should be usable:

Can you please report it upstream at and paste the link here?

Anyone report upstream? The issue is still present.
