Bug Description

Since 12.10, there is no Python2 library for accessing command-not-found functionality: if a program was using it, it will stop working after upgrade to Quantal. An example of such a project is Linaro Image Tools which relies on CommandNotFound to find packages missing commands are in.

Solution is either to port code to Python3 (very hard) or simply to keep providing a python2 package of command-not-found library.

A test case is simple:

  python -c "import CommandNotFound"

I'll be linking a branch (based on lp:ubuntu/quantal/command-not-found) that introduces python-command-not-found package with Python2 libraries: I am sure I've done many things wrong in it, and I'd be happy to get any comments on it.

  [ Danilo Segan ]
  * Reintroduce Python2 support with python-commandnotfound package.
    (LP: #1123193)

  [ Barry Warsaw ]
  * Move the Python 3 library to the python3-commandnotfound package, and
    build depend command-not-found on that.
  * debian/control: Bump to Standards-Version: 3.9.4
  * debian/rules: Remove --without=python-support as no longer needed.

By the way, we have dropped the Python2 python-commandnotfound version now for Ubuntu 18.04.
