I bump the status back to 'triaged' until you supply a link to a source package that can be reviewed.


since it seems that this issue had no progress, I made a package:

Maybe some things can done in a nicer way, but it works.
I would be pleased about your feedback ;)

The correct link to the PPA should be:


The package appears to work fine.

I forgot this over the time and will soon upload a package to http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/.

Thanks for your feedback. I am glad to hear that it is working correctly :)

@Martin Mai

You're welcome : ]

I removed the package from my ppa since "gogh" is now unmaintained. The web presence is now offline for several month and the author of the package has not responded to a mail I wrote to him long time ago.

Since unmaintained code is very unlikely to be uploaded, I mark this as "won't fix". If you notice the web presence getting updated just leave a comment here and I will continue the work. Thanks.

Openned again, the autor now is mantaining the code on Google Code:

Thank you, Julián, for that info. I am assigning the bug back to me.
