Please do not post comments about the GUI not working because you didn't install the optional dependency needed to make the GUI work.

It is weird that this package only installs the GUI to path, and none of the CLI 'binaries' (they are actually bash scripts and well worth looking at), and yet the pygtk package is 'optional'. It seems that either the CLI scripts should be added to the path, or, indeed, the pygtk should be a non-optional dependency. As it is, the package is non-functional out of the box. You either have to install the AUR package 'pygtk', or you get mysterious messages about not being able to import gtk from the python2 GUI. Or you have to add the bash scripts to your path and use findup etc manually (which I prefer now that I know where they are). Hopefully, this explains what is going on to the next poor AUR user who falls into this trap. But to @goodgerster, I'd just add the pygtk to be non-optional to the package and silence the complaints.

Why should we not request pygtk to be a dependency (not an optional dependency) when the package’s only binary is literally a GUI binary which requires pygtk and is literally called fslint-gui? Please move it from an optional dependency to a dependency.

Seems to be missing a dependency. When starting fslint-gui:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/fslint-gui", line 32, in <module> import gtk ImportError: No module named gtk

@acreativename I had same issue, you need pygtk

@acreativename It works for me in ArchLinux. I'm in version 2.46-2. Have you tried to execute it from command line to see if it shows any error in the console?

This seems to no longer work, I installed it on a new install of Manjaro and if you try to open the program, it just shows the icon in the task manager for a split second, and disappears.

I no longer use Arch Linux so feel free to adopt

@thoth Out-of-date flagging is not for reporting any problem with the PKGBUILD other than it being out of date.

@stevenhoneyman If you can no longer maintain it, please orphan the package and I will adopt it. EDIT: That was fast. Thanks.

alfredo.ardito: your problem most certainly has nothing to do with fslint. gstreamer0.10-good-plugins has been removed from official repos. Get rid of it or use the AUR package for it.
