When trying to run hp-toolbox from hplip package, i've got the following error:

from ui4.devmgr5 import DevMgr5
File "/usr/share/hplip/ui4/", line 34, in <module>
from base import device, utils, pml, maint, models, pkit
File "/usr/share/hplip/base/", line 42, in <module>
import gobject
ImportError: No module named gobject"

the fix is to install pygobject

I think is hplip that needs pygobject, pyqt works without it.
