I recently installed the package and after some routine activity on my PC with nmap scanning I discovered it was running an HTTP server on open port 7200. This is highly suspicious.

EDIT. I discovered that the programmer is aware of the issue, but has no plan to change it. If you continue using the application and trust the source you should block TCP 7200 in your Firewall at least. I myself have removed the application.

The package needs to be rebuilt, otherwise this happens:

$ safeeyes
Traceback (most recent call last):

python-setuptools must be added in depends().

Had to install package python-setuptools, otherwise makepkg failed.

Like @third_man commented python-gobject is a necessary dependency. Without it you will encounter the following error:

AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'

third_man commented on 2016-10-26 05:06

Please add python2-gobject as dependency. It provides necessary gi module.

Are you using GNOME+Wayland by any chance?
The application doesn't seem to be working for me. The process is there, but there is no tray icon I can click on the legacy tray bar. I will look further into the issue at any rate.
