terminator 1.92-1 has a dependency on python-configobj which is not satisfied by its PKGBUILD, resulting in terminator not starting after the update, complaining about a missing configobj module during startup.

Workaround: Manually install python-configobj.

Additional info:
* terminator 1.92-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Uninstall python-configobj if present on your computer. This will not affect terminator's installation as python-configobj is not an official dependency.
* Launch terminator.
This task depends upon

Confirmed. Terminator failed after upgrading from 1.91-6 to 1.92-1. After installing python-configobj it worked again.

Confirmed. Terminator does not start after update. Installing python-configobj solved problem.

Confirmed. Terminator doesn't start after the latest update. Works after installing python-configobj.

Confirmed, same issue, same solution : install python-configobj

$ terminator

Package "python-configobj" must be a required depedency.
