Description NSLW 2013-09-15 04:50:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I cannot get branch visualization in git-cola because of missing dependency (gitk).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start git-cola
2. Branch
3. Visualize Current Branch

Actual results:

Expected results:
Branch visualization

Additional info:
I need to install "gitk" package in order to get branch visualization. Could this package be included as dependency of "git-cola" package?
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2013-09-15 18:58:05 EDT
The branch visualizer to use can be chosen in the git-cola preferences, I use and recommend qgit. I think hardcoding a dependency on a visualizer using an ugly legacy toolkit would be a very bad idea.
