seems python-setuptools should be a dependency

I seem to be getting an error on zonescan:

@TrackMasterSteve Joy!! Finally this package runs on my machine! You sir are a prince. Thank you!

TrackMasterSteve commented on 2022-10-23 20:52 (UTC)

@faulknet your prayers have been answered! ;)

faulknet commented on 2022-10-18 03:26 (UTC)

Here's hoping @TrackMasterSteve orchestrates another release soon because I'd love to see this package updated. There is an array length bug in the latest release that keeps this package from running properly on my Alienware 13 R3. The master branch from the GitHub repo works so it would appear that the issue has since been fixed. Pwetty pwease?

TrackMasterSteve commented on 2017-12-02 16:18 (UTC)

I pushed a new version on github. And I changed the branch structure as well. Sorry for causing the breaks here. Hopefully @Shatur can fix the links soon. Until then, you can just install directly from github.

Shatur commented on 2017-12-02 14:16 (UTC)

@jingjinghack thank you! I updated link.

Shatur commented on 2017-11-30 11:11 (UTC)

@Witko thank you! You are right. I wrote to the developer to start providing release archives. We need to wait :)

Witko commented on 2017-11-30 10:44 (UTC)

Hi Shatur, first of all thank you for packaging this. There are couple of things: 1) you should name the package as -git as you use master branch 2) currently the master branch is not there for alienfx - not sure about the reasons Witko
