Out of interest, I just downloaded the source of clawsker 1.3.1 from
https://www.claws-mail.org/clawsker.php and unpacked and built it. It
appears to run successfully. I'm still on Leap 15.0. I had to install
perl-File-Which to make it build but I don't have
Glib::File::Introspection so apparently that isn't needed.

  $ ./clawsker -v
  Clawsker :: A Claws Mail Tweaker
  Version: @VERSION@
  Perl-GLib version 1.326, built for 2.54.3, running with 2.54.3.
  Perl-GTK3 version 0.034, built for 30, running with 3.22.30.
  Claws Mail returned version

My existing clawsker 1.2.0 continues to work.

  $ clawsker -v
  Clawsker :: A Claws Mail Tweaker
  Version: 1.2.0
  Perl-GLib version 1.326, built for 2.54.3, running with 2.54.3.
  Perl-GTK2 version 1.24992, built for 2.24.32, running with 2.24.32.
  Claws Mail returned version

I don't understand, either :)

I hope clawsker continues to work when I upgrade to 15.1 shortly.
