It's not working now. I get the following error when executing in the terminal:

ERROR:../pygobject/gi/gimodule.c:1850:_wrap_pyg_hook_up_vfunc_implementation: assertion failed: (G_TYPE_IS_CLASSED (implementor_gtype))

@m8D2 @yochananmarqos : Greetings, it seems that hypnotix package makes use of that python-unicode dependency, I'm not sure if Mint leaves that out due to having it already installed with hypnotix but I already issue an update that adds it just in case. You should be seeing it later

@Santi-Burgos: The upstream URL should not be the insecure download server. It should be the GitHub sources:

@m8D2: It seems so, however Clem missed adding it to dependencies in the Debian control file.

Is python-unidecode required?

I encountered this error:

$ mintstick
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/mintstick/", line 3, in <module>
    from unidecode import unidecode
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'unidecode'

depends=(exfat-utils) means you can install any package that "provide" exfat-utils as a dependency. You can install either exfatprogs, exfatprogs-git, exfat-utils, exfat-utils-debug, etc., because they all "provide" exfat-utils.

On the other hand, depends=(exfatprogs) means that exfat-utils* packages are excluded as possible dependencies (by the package manager).

Also, as already commented before, this package should not have conflicts=(mintstick-git), because that conflict is already defined in mintstick-git and should not be repeated here.

@kj_sh604: to be honest and after checking the upstream package on Mint Github (you can check dependencies here), it seems that it requires either of both installed indistinctly (one of them must exist); however; exfatprogs comes natively on Arch ISO and exfat-utils doesn't unless a derivative adds it (Manjaro, Endevaour, etc.)

@Santi-Burgos First of all, thank you for the continued maintenance of this package. We really appreciate it as a community.

I was just wondering if exfat-utils would be a suitable alternate dependency for exfatprogs/exfatprogs-git? or does mintstick perform operations that strictly require the latter?

New version is ok for both apps: 1.5.7-2. Thanks for the correction.

Greetings @Archcan_98, it seems that the file you reported is not working due to file permissions, I issued an update that should help and fix the issue
