suggestion: depends=('enchant' 'python2-distutils-extra' 'python2-vobject' 'python2-storm' 'python2-pyenchant' 'python2-xdg')

python2-distutils-extra is a dependency.

to avoid the ${pkgdir} reference inside the package, the python setup must be:
python2 install --root="${pkgdir}"

instead of
python2 install --prefix=$pkgdir/usr

(this is the equivalent of make DESTDIR="${pgkdir}").

I'm open for suggestion about that...

There is something wrong in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dexter/ It contains a variable, __dexter_data_directory__, which points toward /tmp/yaourt-tmp-oxayotl/aur-dexter/pkg/usr/share/dexter/ instead of /usr/share/dexter/ . It doesn't prevent Dexter from running, but it does prevent the About windows from opening.

pyxdg is added.

Also need to install "pyxdg" or you'll see the following error:

ImportError: No module named xdg.BaseDirectory
