Re: [Gimp-user] No gimp-python in Debian (Testing)

Do you have python installed? On my Ubuntu system the 'python' package is 2.7.
I had not.

The second dpkg call, where I attempted to install both gimp-python and python-gtk2 from my previous
debian install (in another partition), apparently left a record of its attempt, for when I called up synaptic
to see if python was installed, python and six or eight other python-related packages were already selected
for install to correct 'broken' packages.
Once I let it install them, I called the dpkg call again, and was successful.

Note that my success was only because I had my earlier debian install available to raid, and that the apt
package cache had not been cleaned out and the two packages were right there.

Someone who had newly come to debian testing or sid, or had erased his previous install when installing,
or who had been a good housekeeper and cleaned out his cached packages, would not have had the option
that was ultimately successful for me.

I assume gimp-python will have to be updated to use python3 at some point, or more and more people will
find that GIMP no longer will be able to run python plugins.
(I don't know if all, some or few of the plugins will have to be updated as well - if the Python API has 
enough to be a problem for legacy Python apps/plugins, or not...)
