@jmagder This package does not depend on python2-cairo, pygtk does. pygtk is for gtk2, which this package is, so naturally the gtk3 version doesn't need it.

@katt, it looks like doesn't exist anymore. I've been running without FAHControl, but I just tried and that one works.

Oh *&(()&%$&. I'm using Artix not Arch, so I suppose I don't have much to say here. Sorry for the noise. I'll have to bring this up with Artix. I'll also have to remember to check for Arch packages when this type of thing hits me again.

@ostroffjh It better not be in AUR since it's in the offical repos:

@katt The problem is that python2-cairo is no longer in AUR, so I can't install either pygtk or fahcontrol. However, as it's a direct dep for pygtk, that's where someone needs to figure out whether to re-add it or find a way not to depend on it.

@ostroffjh I think you misunderstood, pygtk does depend on it already, so whatever error you're getting is on your system.

OK, I'll post there - but it does mean fahcontrol can't be installed until that is fixed.

@ostroffjh This package does not depend on python2-cairo, but pygtk does, which this package depends on.

Trying to install fails on missing dep on python2-cairo (I am assuming that python2-cairosvg will not do.)

@yobleck Works just fine for me without it, you probably just need to rebuild fahcontrol.

EDIT: Answered that one too late in the night, seeing how there's nothing to build here I am not sure, but it sure did work for me without installing libffi7.
