No module named 'spaceimg'

Just this last week space-bg failed to get the image (connection time out). As one can see from the output listed below my system (Antergos) doesn't like IPV6. When I use the -4 option for wget the image is immediately downloaded. That being the easiest solution, I altered the spacesetbg script to use wget -4 ...

No question here, just a note to post in case others want to find out what is happening but don't want to do any debugging.

I'm still enjoying space-bg, it's wonderful. Thanks for keeping it available.

**** output *******
