gnome-split ships /usr/share/pixmaps as a file, that's going to work
since that's a base directory

This appears to only need a rebuild. I've tested this via pbuilder-dist
on bionic as well as my PPA (https://launchpad.net/~ubuntubudgie-
dev/+archive/ubuntu/unstable-test/+packages) that has proposed enabled.

pixmaps is now a folder in the rebuilt binary not a file as before.

Why the sync from debian produced a pixmaps file I don't know because on
debian sid gnome-split has a pixmaps folder

** Patch added: "buildonly.debdiff"
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-split/+bug/1758120/+attachment/5141001/+files/buildonly.debdiff

** Changed in: gnome-split (Ubuntu)
Assignee: (unassigned) => fossfreedom (fossfreedom)

** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+
+ * The package cannot be installed on bionic since the package that has
+ been produced has the /usr/share/pixmaps as a file not as a folder.
+
+ [Test Case]
+
+ * Install the package on any Ubuntu flavour
+
+ [Regression Potential]
+
+ * None - the patch is a no change rebuild so fixes something that is
+ fundamentally broken.
+
+ [Other Info]
+
+ * None
