pyntor seems to be fragile code. I'm a python neophyte and took a look a pyntor's code to better my understanding of the language. I think I need to find a more robust example to learn from. pyntor is sort of a GUI-oriented program, but depends heavily on print statements (to stdout) to report errors. I complained to the program's author (Josef Spillner <email address hidden>) that when invoked from the Applications menu, there is no file argument passed and the program silently fails to start, never even offering the user a menu to pick a file from. He replied:

First, a disclaimer: Pyntor is currently not well maintained and hasn't seen
development updates for about 3-4 years now.

It is not designed to be a GUI-oriented tool to be invoked from an application
menu. Rather, it definitely needs some slideshow data to work on. So the
packaging is somehow wrong and a bug should be filed against the menu entry.


pyntor needs an adoptive parent to give it some serious loving. Is it a valued part of Ubuntu or a lost cause?
