byobu-config is using python3 so you may remove optional dep on python2

Good suggestions, applied.

Would you mind applying these two patches? I don't imagine they will be included upstream soon.

The patches fix line corruption due to incorrect color codes and the Gnome desktop application not starting.

Byobu desktop application doesn't start for me. Also, I'm getting line corruption from prompt, maybe the same as this issue:

Has anyone else seen these issues?

@greyltc Yes, upstream now provides two .desktop files in /usr/share/byobu/desktop.
in post_install there is a message that you should symlink one of the two to /usr/share/applications, depending on your setup.

@SibrenVasse your most recent update has somehow broken the .desktop file (gnome no longer knows the program exists)

Sparticuz commented on 2016-01-11 16:20

Does anyone know what the differences between the .desktop and .desktop.old file mean? (The Exec and Terminal entries)

@SibrenVasse Please fix the .desktop file in this package to properly point to the icon it installs.

greyltc commented on 2015-10-10 10:14

The icon is missing.
