#9917 closed defect (fixed)

asymptote requires Pillow to be built with Python2

Reported by: ken@… Owned by: ken@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 8.2
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


I got carried away when I replaced the optional dep for xasy of Imaging with Pillow - yes, that does build with both Python2 and Python3, but xasy is a Python2 script (/usr/bin/env python) so unless we follow the heresy of making Python point to Python3 it will not be found.

This has a knock-on effect re recompiling Python3 - tkinter is not required by any Python3 packages in the book after fixing this.

Side note - at some point xasy had been changed to refer to Pillow instead of Imaging, but of course I never saw that until I built only the Python3 version.

Corrected in r19361.

I assume this can be marked as fixed now?

Yes, thought I had closed it. Thanks for noticing.
