Hi All, getting this crash when I do an intense scan as normal user or root. Doesn't error with quick scans. Input was: intense scan, range: x.x.x.0-255 on LAN

Version: 7.94
   Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/zenmapGUI/", line 538, in verify_execution

@Stunkymonkey I agree with @medmedin. For next latest releases of Arch Linux where Python2 cannot be retrieved anymore, that PKGBUILD will be unusable, and if users should retrieve Python2 from AUR for running the rules in this PKGBUILD, users are obligated to have security holes due to Python2 presence.

I know also that currently the zenmap/ script does not work on Python3, so I don't know if you are one of Nmap devs. If so, it could be useful to push to Python3.

It needs also to be updated to version 7.93.

"Zenmap (as root)" in the Internet group under xfce4 Applications menu has failed silently for many months on my hosts. I've fixed it with 2 patches from

The 1st one adds lines to /usr/share/zenmap/

The 2nd creates a new .policy file /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.gnome.pkexec.zenmap.policy NOTE: The path is different from that cited in the commit but the contents are the same.

@medmedin there is already zenmap-python3-git for this case. I would like to keep this as the official version and not have a custom branch used.

@Stunkymonkey Arch removed python2 from its repos, and python2 from AUR is nightmare if you try to install it (it takes really long time to finish building), how can we have zenmap with python3 ?

I upload a git aur package for the python3 pr on zenmap.

git based on github/kulikjak.

I needed this, so finally got a working 7.93 instance, based on python3, installed and working.

It's based on the commits from github/kulikjak/nmap; who spearheaded the migration to python3+python-gobject

It would be nice to have the new GTK3 version packaged as well:

I found I had to explicitly install "gtksu-git" first before this package would update successfully.

The 'gksu" fails to build.

error with gksu building
