A couple of things related to this package:

* Because upstream relies on gksu this package also has a dependency on it. When upstream decides to remove that dependency to use pkexec we will remove gksu, until then, please get used to it.

* The app was created with Linux Mint in mind, so there are some things that might be handled differently on Arch; you can check the "Locale" or "Internationalization" articles on the wiki for more information. Please also keep that in mind before posting bugs here

Any problems or bugs (maybe some related to usage), you can report it to upstream via its Github page

@Sam-Burgos Added missing package - works now.

@SunRed: interesting, was not expecting that to happen actually, I am running Antergos which actually has that package (it's named iso-flag-png), I am trying to look for the PKGBUILD so I can post it here as dependency but I haven't had any luck so far in finding it, if you can catch it either from Antergos or Manjaro I would appreciate it so I can publish it as well

By testing the package now it asks for "/usr/share/iso-flag-png/_generic.png" that Arch does not have. Afaik Linux Mint uses a separate flags package containing all these files. Manjaro does have it packages and in its repos.
How did you manage to run it without an error?

@Sam-Burgos Yes, I was a bit busy and forgot to answer but I read your email and added you for now. Cheers.

Perhaps I can help you if you can add me as co-maintainer, I send you some comparison tests on the newer and the current version to your email, and probably the patch won't be needed anymore

When I set my language it needs to restart to apply change. However the second restart moves everything back to English...

Hi, thanks for catching the OOD :) Should be rectified now. When I have time (after I finish this degree, move about the country etc.), I should have a look at how this program actually works in Linux Mint.

I updated the PKGBUILD:

Remember to update de .SRCINFO if you would use it.
