Today I have stumbled upon an interesting Python library WeasyPrint
, which uses pygobject in a seemingly new way and unfortunately doesn't work on Slackware-current. Perhaps this way is not really new, but since I haven't seen it before until today, it's new to me.
import statements in that library are written as follows:
from gi.repository import GObject
And so on, but gi.repository (or gi module itself) can't be imported. After looking around on the net, I made a connection between gi.repository and gobject-introspection package which recently landed into -current.
So, I was wondering, if this gi.repository stuff should be in gobject-introspection package? Or maybe pygobject? I understand that Slackware team is very busy right now, fixing all sorts of things that broke after last big batch of updates, so I won't be expecting answers from them, but maybe someone else has some clues about this.
