Package: python-gobject
Version: 2.28.6-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I tried the following one liner which should work with python-gobject:

    python -c 'from gi.repository import Gtk'

with the following error:

    ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Gtk
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
    ImportError: cannot import name Gtk
