Package: pdfarranger
Version: 1.1.1-1
Followup-For: Bug #921534

Control: severity -1 important

I confirm everything reported so far. As this has a major effect on the
usability of the package, I think it should have 'important' severity.

Without python3-gi-cairo the
         stderr output is:
'could not find foreign type Context'
  (repeated twice)
         stdout output is:
Error retrieving accessibility bus address:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not
provided by any .service files
TypeError: Couldn't find foreign struct converter for 'cairo.Context'
  (last line repeated many times)

After installing python3-gi-cairo the page previews are displayed, and the
outputs lines above containing 'Context' disappear.
Jerome probably has it already installed.
Note that pdfarranger now depends on python3-cairo and python3-gi.

python3-gi-cairo should be a Depend (or at least a Recommend and then 
mentioned in the description).
