Your package is broken with a certain dependency like flowblade-git

Launch script dir: /usr/sbin
Running from filesystem...
MLT found, version: 6.2.0
Failed to import module to launch Flowblade!
ERROR: No module named app
Installation was assumed to be at: /usr/sbin/Flowblade

I agree. Done

As of v1.6.0, I think there should be an optional dependency on the gmic package, because the Tools > G'MIC Effects menu complains about the lack of /usr/bin/gmic.

OK, I'm probably missing something here but:
1. this package doesn't work at all for me, I get this error at startup (after I edit "flowblade" to actually display the backtrace instead of hiding it and displaying only the text error)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./flowblade", line 65, in <module>

2. I don't really understand what's up with the custom download link. I changed the PKGBUILD file (in an effort to make sure that I'm running the right version here trying to fix error #1) in 5 minutes to use the official repository location for downloading the code:

NOTE: that changes the package version from 1.2.0 to 1.2, which makes sense because there is no flowblade 1.2.0, there is only a 1.2 (i.e. the flowblade releases do not use a x.y.z format but a x.y one)

Anyway... any idea about my error at #1? Googling a bit it seems that "" is GTK+3 API and as far as I can tell I only have GTK+2 on this system and this package dependecies doesn't seem to require GTK+3. Then again, the FlowBlade official changelog says that the move to GTK+3 happened after 1.2 (a big point of the upcoming 1.4 release) so no idea what's going on here.

Thanks for any help!

ok, updated again, back to dropbox.

I think the releases are these.

You can also go with tags, instead of branches. I really don't know the difference, i didn't tested.

sxe commented on 2015-05-07 08:28

I have fixed the Upstream URL but i will keep the source code location for this package how it is.

I made a new package to respect the naming convention: and furthermore gets the code from git repository.

Until i know if there will be releases in tar.gz form i will keep this package.
If git will be the only way to get it in the future this package will be marked obsolete.

Thx for the info Anonymous.
