Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1459653
missing dependency of package gajim: gnome-python2-gnome
Last modified: 2017-06-30 06:09:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Installing gajim does not automatically install package 'gnome-python2-gnome'. It is required though:
gajim.py:487: ImportWarning: Not importing directory '/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome': missing __init__.py
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure gnome-python2-gnome is not installed
2. install Gajim
gnome-python2-gnome is not installed automatically
gnome-python2-gnome should be installed
I can reproduce the ImportWarning message, but Gajim starts and works anyway.
Are you seeing any loss of functionality?
A comment in the code says the import is for session management. This is non-essential functionality. I'd prefer to avoid a hard dependency for this.

I reported this because I thought it was the reason I could not simply install the omemo plugin - but it turns out that that was because the plugin-installer plugin is not installed per default on fedora (and in fact not packaged at all). So no, I did not notice any problems even with the warning.
The plugin installer should be working again in gajim-0.16.8-1.fc25. The reason it was broken in 0.16.7 was a mistake done by the upstream Gajim developers when creating the tarball. Later they realized the mistake and respun the tarball, but I had already packaged the original one without noticing the problem.
The OMEMO plugin can be installed, but it does not run. It is due to missing python-axolotl in Fedora. It seems the package reviews have been abandoned:
