Nice application but it needs a patch:

On /usr/share/applications/tkpacman.desktop you need to change the line:
Exec=gksu /usr/bin/tkpacman

Otherwise when you select to install something, the terminal opens and nothing happens.

Also change the permissions on /usr/bin/tkpacman so only root user can run this program:
chmod og-x /usr/bin/tkpacman

And finally you need gksu program as 'dependence' to ask for root password.

I am sorry that it has taken almost a month to repair tkPacman.

The problem is not that it was difficult to solve, but that I was not aware of the problem. I was using tkPacman myself in locale nl_NL.UTF-8 which worked without problems. It also worked under en_GB.UTF-8, but failed in most non-English locales.

So, please, if you experience problems with tkPacman, let me know.

Bug solved which caused tkPacman to crash on most non-English locales.
