Description Luke-Jr 2019-09-18 15:11:40 UTC
xpra 2.4.3 installs fine, but actually using it fails:

2019-09-18 14:48:43,582 Error: processing new connection from Protocol(unix-domain socket:/run/xpra/hostname-100):
2019-09-18 14:48:43,582  No module named PIL

Comment 1 Luke-Jr 2019-09-18 15:40:50 UTC
Simply installing pillow does NOT seem to fix it either:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/xpra/server/source/", line 250, in do_send_cursor
    assert PIL
