I suggest using github releases instead:

Sure, pygtk is in optdeps, because bmpanel2cfg usage is optional, you can edit config files with your text editor just fine.

For me, bmpanel2cfg required the pygtk package, or it throws back 'ImportError: no module named gtk'

Package owned and updated to 2.1pre1-5, fixed runtime build and optional dependencies, added license, better description, minor fixes.

Fixed, I haven't found a good way to specify that I need python 2.6 or python 2.7 in CMake, so I've just added an ugly hack for archlinux only. "-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python2.7", should work now.

I changed raise KeyError, item to raise KeyError(item) to get it working in python3, but now there is no gtk package for python3 -> could you use python2 in the package

Hi I can't get bmpanel2cfg running on a fresh installed arch-openbox vm
If i run bmpanel2cfg i get
File "/usr/bin/bmpanel2cfg", line 3, in <module>
import bmpanel2
File "/usr/bin/python3.2/site-packages/", line 143
raise KeyError, item

invalid syntax
