This package has a missing dependency in PGKBUILD on python-distro. Otherwise the applet won't start with following stack trace:

Cannot pin applications to the dock. The option seems to be missing on right click, any solutions? I'm going to try compiling from source.

Added conflict mate-applet-dock package in community, as per comment

Added python-dbus dependency, as per comment, but not python-scipy as it is no longer used by the applet.

Added bamf as a dependency, as the latest version of the applet uses this.

Missing two depencies: python-dbus and python-scipy

Should conflict with 'mate-applet-dock' repo package

Have updated the package to build the Gtk3 version of the applet following the release of MATE 1.18.....

I've updated the package with new build instructions and everything is working again. Thanks for letting me know that there was a problem.

I was getting a build fail with the error: " error: no proper invocation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found." Fix was to change "autoreconf" to "autoreconf -i" in PKGBUILD.

I've added python-gobject as a dependency. Thanks for the info!
