Run Dogtail using Python 3
Currently we install
python-dogtail, which uses Python 2 and makes it impossible to deal with objects containing unicode character (e.g. "Save As…" (note the triple dots)).
The Debian packaging repo for dogtail has switched to Python 3 since almost a year back, but there has been no release since then. However, I tried building a package and installing it, and it worked fine vs unicode strings at least.
- Subject changed from Generate Python 3 code for Dogtail to Run Dogtail using Python 3
- Description updated (diff)
Please see the updated description. With that as background, I guess we might want to consider building our own
python3-dogtail from version 0.9.9-1, until we can make Debian release it for stretch backports.
