This works for me. Added plus: no more python2!

When pygtk isn't installed it gives me the following error when trying to start gtkman. I think pygtk should be added in dependencies.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/gtkman", line 4, in <module>
import gtk
ImportError: No module named gtk

Please replace python with python2 in dependencies.

Please add intltool as makedepends.
When compiling the following error appears: gtkman.desktop was not found.

Version 0.7.2 is available, I built it just by changing the pkgver in the PKGBUILD.

Can you please install manpage to /usr/share/man/ (not /usr/man/)? Thanks a lot!

Version 0.5 has been released more than a half year ago.
