this package has a dependency failure due to my wrongly written slack-required file. I uploaded a fixed package.

Code: [Select]
fontpage: Depends: pyGTK >= 2.6
you can ignore this dep really,but its annoying,so reupload the package please. The fixed package is on the place of the old one (i overwrote the file at my contrib).Please upload the fixed package.

changed pyGTK to pygtk in the slack-required file.

I've changed it to the one in your contrib, and changed the revision number to 3vl58.

Yes indeed, sometimes the server sync is almost instantaneous, other times it can take more than half and hour.
