There are two split packages gnuradio and gnuradio-companion. The former contains all files, the latter none. While the gnuradio packages includes the gnuradio-companion it is unusable because some dependencies are missing that are part of the gnuradio-companion package.

See file list for gnuradio:

* usr/bin/gnuradio-companion
* usr/share/applications/gnuradio-grc.desktop
* usr/share/gnuradio/grc/

On a basic install you will most likely lack at least python-cairo (prevents startup), python-pyqt5 and qwt (needed for waterfall display).

Additional info:
* package version(s): gnuradio

Steps to reproduce:

Install gnuradio, try to start the gnuradio-companion. An error message appears (see attached). If you install python-cairo and try to run actual programs you will encounter additional errors.
