Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 979713
diffuse shebang shouldn't use /usr/bin/env
Last modified: 2013-07-08 21:36:07 EDT
The first line is:
As part of a distro with its own dependency on python and pygtk packages, it should depend on the installation of Python it allegedly depends on with its definite path, instead of whatever's found in the PATH environment variable. Using env in the shebang will run Python from whatever is found in PATH.
1. Install own Python, e.g. using virtualenv. Do not install pygtk in that Python installation
2. Activate the installed Python.
2. Run diffuse and see it fail.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/diffuse", line 124, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pygtk
diffuse should show a GUI window
Exact same bug as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=890723, but for F17 instead of F18.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
diffuse-0.4.7-2.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
