Look at the terminal output.

#### Python import error for _tkinter

As mentioned in the README setup instructions, you do need python3-tk
installed (or whatever it's called in your distro).










#### Syntax error for f"…" strings

Requires py >=3.6

#### Main window freezes

................................................................................

### Will this work with mod_security v3 ?

Probably not. I'd imagine this to be a parsing nightmare for Apache
as well. So if, it's probably just going to cover secrule_includes,
and you'll have to have vhost.name.secrule files alongside.

#### Noto color emoji / X Error of failed request:  BadLength

That's a [bug in libxft/tkinter](https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libxft/-/merge_requests/1)
in recent distros. Either uninstall all color emoji fonts, or upgrade
[tcl+tkinter(...) to 8.6.11](https://packages.debian.org/sid/tk). But since
that will take some time to make its rounds, any colored glyphs have been
removed in modseccfg 0.8 anyway. (Was largely decoration for menus and
buttons anyhow.)

### Install packages as rpm?

Nobody asked for those yet. You can convert installable packages with
[`alien --to-rpm modsec-flameeyes_2020.06.13_all.deb`](https://wiki.debian.org/Alien)
however. Use `locate modseccfg/install` to find the package directory.
