Description Franco Bugnano 2018-05-01 12:44:42 UTC
Description of problem:
gtg fails to install on Fedora 28

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtg-0.3.1-16.fc28.noarch

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
sudo dnf install gtg

Actual results:
Error: 
 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides python-liblarch_gtk needed by gtg-0.3.1-16.fc28.noarch



Expected results:
gtg gets installed correctly

Additional info:
There is a python3-liblarch_gtk package available in the repository, though I don't know whether it's the correct package, or gtg still expects the python2 version of that package, which is not included in the repository.

Description of the problem:
gtg (Getting Things GNOME!) fails to install on Fedora 28

Version-Release number:
gtg-0.3.1-16.fc28.noarch

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to reproduce:
sudo dnf install gtg

Actual results:
Error: 
 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides python-liblarch_gtk needed by gtg-0.3.1-16.fc28.noarch

Expected results:
gtg gets installed correctly

Additional info:
I've installed python3-liblarch_gtk-3.0-2.fc28.noarch but it doesn't find it. Seems like gtg expects the python2 version. 
I have gtg installed on another laptop with F28 (upgraded from F27), and it still uses python-liblarch-2.1.0-20.fc27.noarch from de F27 repo. A (bad) workaround is to enable F27 repos to get that package and allow the gtg installation.

Comment 3 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2018-08-13 09:40:45 UTC
Hi there,

Thanks for the bug reports. Unfortunately, neither python-liblarch, nor gtg have seen commits since 2015 so it's safe to say that upstream is inactive. We will not see any updates, bugfixes, nor enhancements to these software.

https://github.com/getting-things-gnome/liblarch
https://github.com/getting-things-gnome/gtg

So, I'm going to retire them both. Please use another tool that is actively maintained. This fedora magazine post features a few alternatives. I'm sorry gtg featured there too, we'll be more careful about it in the future:

Cheers,
Ankur

Both pacakges have been retired. I'm leaving this issue open so that others that may run into the issue can be informed.
