Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Please drop the gtk.Spinner use, make it fallback to something else, or depend on the correct version of python-gtk2; the last option should not be considered as I would like to use it in Debian experimental without pygtk 2.21.

Thanks a lot, Julian, we will take care of this. We'll likely implement the fallback option as some folks (*cough*me) have become quite attached to the spinner. :)

Hi again Julian. So, I implemented a fallback spinner for use if gtk.Spinner is not available. It uses an animated gif and doesn't look *quite* as pretty as a gtk.Spinner but I think it does the trick pretty nicely.

Thanks again!
