Description Jimmy C. Chau 2011-01-01 05:43:40 UTC
net-im/pidgin-2.7.5 installs /usr/bin/purple-remote.  purple-remote requires dev-python/dbus-python (it runs "import dbus" on line 3).  However, net-im/pidgin-2.7.5 does not depend on dev-python/dbus-python.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install net-im/pidgin (with the dbus use flag; I haven't tried without the dbus use flag yet).  I get the same results whether or not I enable the python use flag. 
2. Make sure dev-python/dbus-python is not installed (if it is, it's probably pulled-in by something else).  
3. Run purple-remote

Actual Results:  
Get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/purple-remote", line 4, in <module>
    import dbus
ImportError: No module named dbus


Expected Results:  
purple-remote should start properly and output usage/help information.  

Installing dev-python/dbus-python allows purple-remote to run.
