I am a Gourmet user for my cooking recipes, I found no better alternative on Ubuntu for that. Gnome Recipes is attractive and promising, but dev is not very active from what I can see, and it lacks import function which is mandatory to me, as I have a huge list of my own recipes.

I checked in a VM to install Gourmet on Ubuntu 20.04 with no luck : I can install Python 2.7 (no more installed by default), I can find a Gourmet .deb package (removed from store), but when tying to install (with GDebi) I have that error : Dependency error not satisfied with python-gtk2 (>= 2.22.0)

And python-gtk2 package is no more available. So I am stuck here !

  • We are working on the new version of Gourmet which will be python3 compatible. I hope it will be distributed via original channels. Any contribution is highly appreciated!: github.com/kirienko/gourmet – Yury Kirienko May 1 at 8:58

Installation is still possible, but you have to download packages manually from previous Ubuntu releases with commands below:

mkdir -p ~/Downloads/gourmet
cd ~/Downloads/gourmet

In Ubuntu 20.04 install python-cairo

sudo apt install python-cairo

Configurando python-cairo:amd64 (1.16.2-2ubuntu2)... Configurando python-gtk2 (2.24.0-6)...
