Can you please drop the unneeded glade dependency? See this bug report in Gentoo:

Hi there, with the latest update the language is now english and there's no application entry and no icons for paperwork available in gnome. I can start it only through the terminal.

@StreakyCobra: Thank you for your reply. Yes, it looks as if your explanation holds water, because Paperwork installed fine on a second try a couple of days later. I hade the same experience with CherryPy - it only installed after a reboot and, possibly, some Python updates. Now, Paperwork still complains about missing language(s), and always has. I have tried to install and reinstall the language packet several times, but Paperwork keeps insisting there are no languages to detect... However, that's another issue. Sorry for the fuzz.

@whaler: Random guess, may these packages have already been present on your system before the transition to python 3.6? Because each time the python interpreter is updated, you need to recompile all python package installed from AUR in order for them to work with the new version. So if python-pyinsane2 has been compiled for python 3.5, it will not work now on python 3.6. Try maybe then to reinstall also all paperwork dependencies that cause problems.

Well, after deinstalling, restarting, making sure all dependencies present, reinstalling, I still get this when starting to run paperwork from CLI:

[code][self@myself aur]$ paperwork
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pyinsane2' distribution was not found and is required by paperwork
[self@myself aur]$[/code]

It used to complain about 'simplebayes', although it was present.
Now it complains about 'pyinsane2', although it is present and has been so all the time.

@whaler, @tovo: I don't have your dependencies issues here, so I don't really know how to help you. It seems to be an issue with your packages' installation but I don't know what.

Oh, and I just noticed, localization is now broken. All is in English, whereas (for me) it used to be in French.

Thank you for keeping this great software package up-to-date :-)
With latest release (1.2-1), there is no launcher anymore (although `paperwork` on the command-line does work). Besides, the suggested `paperwork-shell install` command fails with:

/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/paperwork/frontend/mainwindow/ PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.

After installing python-pypillowfight I finally got paperwork to install, but I still get error messages when issuing the paperwork-shell commands - Six Python error messages, plus this message:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'simplebayes' distribution was not found and is required by paperwork-backend

However, I have them installed:
aur/python-simplebayes 1.5.7-2 [installed] (10) (0,01)
aur/python2-simplebayes 1.5.7-2 [installed] (10) (0,01)

What gives?
