Description Miro Hrončok 2019-03-19 08:25:54 UTC
Looking at vips specfile, it looks like a mistake that vips-tools-8.7.4-2.fc30 requires /usr/bin/python2. If it is on purpose, please explain why it is needed. Thanks.

Looks like it's for vipsprofile, which hasn't been ported to Python 3.  There's some context at

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-03-20 09:50:59 UTC
Thanks. Let's fix that?

Comment 3 Miro Hrončok 2019-03-20 15:11:01 UTC
Anyway, there is a missing dependency now:

$ vipsprofile
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/vipsprofile", line 5, in <module>
    import cairo
ImportError: No module named cairo
