If xfconf is not installed the program doesn't work. But xfconf is not required as a dependency. My DE is Cinnamon so I had this problem Can you confirm this? In this case is it possible to have catfish working without that dependency?

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

So this is about catfish? What problem are you seeing?

Dear Doug,
sorry for the delay in my answer (I was really very busy at work). Before this version I didn't have xfconf installed and catfish was working. Now catfish works only if xfconf is installed (but it is not required in the list of catfish dependencies). Of course it's not really a problem but perhaps it might be convenient to explicitly say that xfconf is necessary to have catfish working.
In any case don't mind because it works.

Ok, so we did establish that it's catfish and happened after an update, but we still got no description of the error or anything. Good bug reports always include what you're seeing, what change triggered the problem, including versions, and any logs you can find.
