Package: mat
Version: 0.6.1-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
I just installed mat, and doing a simple

$ mat -c image.jpg

gives this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mat", line 10, in <module>
    from libmat import mat
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libmat/mat.py", line 22, in <module>
    import strippers  # this is loaded here because we need LOGGING_LEVEL
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libmat/strippers.py", line 9, in
    import office
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libmat/office.py", line 15, in
    gi.require_version('Poppler', '0.18')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/__init__.py", line 102, in
    raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)
ValueError: Namespace Poppler not available

However after manual installation of gir1.2-poppler-0.18 the problem is solved.

Maybe the mat package must ensure that the gir1.2-poppler-0.18 package is installed,
or install it otherwise.

Kind regards,
