@graysky: got it, thx

graysky commented on 2021-12-13 11:27 (UTC)

@cgirard - see how I am handling python versioning in autojump to avoid manually editing for python rebuilds.

RMT commented on 2021-12-13 05:50 (UTC)

Hello, the python version has upadted to 3.10.

cgirard commented on 2021-01-12 08:15 (UTC)

Sorry, somehow missed the comments. It is now fixed.

graysky commented on 2021-01-11 22:27 (UTC)

I don't maintain the git package, bruh... what do you want me do :D In any case, just use the regular autojump package since upstream hasn't made a commit in over 2 years.

selurvedu commented on 2021-01-11 22:05 (UTC)

@graysky in any case, having an up-to-date PKGBUILD would be nice.

graysky commented on 2020-12-04 23:40 (UTC)

@cirard - See what I did to the autojump package to manage this. @obsz - Development upstream is dead it seems. No reason to build the git package vs the non-git until that changes.

obszczymucha commented on 2020-12-04 21:48 (UTC)

Python update from 3.8 to 3.9 broke this again. Updating PKGBUILD from




fixes it.

mrzeznicki commented on 2019-11-26 13:29 (UTC)

Thank you very much, cgirard. It works now! Great job!

cgirard commented on 2019-11-26 11:18 (UTC)

Really sorry about this. Corrected in -3.

Universebenzene commented on 2019-11-26 04:12 (UTC)

You made a huge mistake in your PKGBUILD: you forgot to define the $_python variable so some of the installed dirs are wrong.

mrzeznicki commented on 2019-11-26 02:37 (UTC)

Hi, unfortunately after the recent update I'm getting

File "/usr/bin/autojump", line 39, in <module> from autojump_argparse import ArgumentParser ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'autojump_argparse'

Looks like installing python modules in /usr/bin is not right (? - I'm not a Python user so can't help here)

graysky commented on 2019-11-21 20:50 (UTC)

@cgirard - you probably want to review the changes I made to and adapt them to this git package.

cgirard commented on 2019-11-07 10:14 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. The old url was redirecting to the new one though, so the content remain the same.

Jonhoo commented on 2019-11-06 14:03 (UTC)

I believe the official git URL is now You'll also likely get many new users shortly, since autojump has now been removed from community/.

cgirard commented on 2014-03-10 14:18 (UTC)

OK adopted. An update is coming soon!

tarch commented on 2014-03-10 13:32 (UTC)

Hi, thanks. I'm not interested in adopting it so please go for it!

cgirard commented on 2014-03-07 14:07 (UTC)

Hi tarch, not interested to adopt the package? (else I will)

tarch commented on 2014-03-07 09:02 (UTC)

Hi, I have updated the PKGBUILD to encompass the new python based installer. Here you find it:

cgirard commented on 2014-02-06 15:01 (UTC)

The install script has been rewritten in Python. is no longer available.

bostonvaulter commented on 2013-06-11 01:25 (UTC)

Okay, updated with wting's changes and should match the pacman 4.1 standards now and autobump the version number (along with a nicer version number).

graysky commented on 2013-04-21 14:40 (UTC)

@bostonvaulter - Plz update this PKGBUILD to comply with pacman 4.1 standards:

graysky commented on 2013-01-06 12:55 (UTC)

Upstream removed jumpapplet so your PKGBUILD fails as-is: Cloning into '/scratch/autojump-git/src/autojump-build'... done. install: cannot stat ‘bin/jumpapplet’: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

wting commented on 2013-01-06 07:32 (UTC)

I've uploaded an updated version of PKGBUILD here:

wting commented on 2013-01-06 06:37 (UTC)

I removed jumpapplet from the repo today as no one uses it. PKGBUILD really should be using the script instead.

msx commented on 2013-01-06 05:57 (UTC)

Hi, I have this compile error: ==> Starting script install... Cloning into '/tmp/yaourtbuild/autojump-git/src/autojump-build'... done. install: cannot stat ‘bin/jumpapplet’: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build autojump-git. ==> Restart building autojump-git ? [y/N] ==> ------------------------------------- ==> Any idea?

bostonvaulter commented on 2012-12-20 20:54 (UTC)

@wting done!

wting commented on 2012-11-23 16:38 (UTC)

Please modify autojump-git.install: From this: echo " > You need to source /etc/profile in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc for autojump to work" To this: echo " > Please add this line to your ~/.bashrc or ~/zshrc:" echo " > [[ -s /etc/profile.d/ ]] && . /etc/profile.d/"

bostonvaulter commented on 2012-06-29 05:57 (UTC)

Okay it has been updated and should work with the latest master. Thanks for maintaining the package @wting!

wting commented on 2012-06-29 05:06 (UTC)

Please update the dependency and PKGBUILD to use Python 3 instead of Python 2. Also, when trying to install this package you get the following errors: ==> Building and installing package ==> ERROR: install file ((autojump-git.install)) does not exist. ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build autojump-git.

joelsc commented on 2012-03-13 12:01 (UTC)

Sounds like a bug. Brew is a mac thing, so you shouldn't here about it. Don't hesitate to report the bug on github:

fzerorubigd commented on 2012-03-12 18:10 (UTC)

I get this error : /etc/profile.d/autojump.zsh:37: command not found: brew any idea?

rwd2 commented on 2012-02-09 08:36 (UTC)

Joelsc: yes it's clear now. And thanks for Autojump!

joelsc commented on 2012-02-08 20:57 (UTC)

I'm autojump's author. The git version is not meant to be stable by any means. Thus the breakage. Is that clearer?

rwd2 commented on 2012-02-08 20:52 (UTC)

Joelsc I have no idea what you meant by that comment.

joelsc commented on 2012-02-08 20:20 (UTC)

I'm in the process of reworking the install system, give it a few days and then you can ask your friendly maintainer to update the PKGBUILD :)

rwd2 commented on 2012-02-08 19:45 (UTC)

with version 20101021-2 makepkg fails with: "install file ((autojump-git.install)) does not exist." fixed with: install=${pkgname}.install

petelewis commented on 2011-04-10 19:46 (UTC)

Hi Joel. Just installed it this week, and couldn't get autocomplete to work. Everything else was working fine though... ...but I just realised what the problem was: I'd forgotten that zsh caches its completion files in ~/.zcompdump. Deleting that file and everything works. Thanks - great tool.

joelsc commented on 2011-04-10 18:56 (UTC)

@petelwis: how long have you been using it? Are you able to jump? Could you post the output of "jumpstat" and "env | grep AUTOJUMP"?

petelewis commented on 2011-04-10 17:57 (UTC)

Is anyone having trouble with zsh completion with this package? The _j file is there, but it's just not completing. Any ideas?

joelsc commented on 2010-10-20 18:02 (UTC)

In any case I'm glad to know it's fixed. I hope to release a version of autojump that's compatible with the 2.x and 3.x series in a few days.

bostonvaulter commented on 2010-10-20 18:02 (UTC)

Uploading a new version with the changes I initially planned to make as well.

bostonvaulter commented on 2010-10-20 17:52 (UTC)

Thanks tlvince, I've updated with your changes. Sorry joelsc, I don't have my error file anywhere. I still have the autojump_py, but I don't think it will be useful. I can say that autojump has been broken for me on that comp for about half a year, I would keep trying new versions but it would be broken (most likely because of my bad error file) so I would just uninstall it. Only recently did I actually try to fix the problem and I was successful.

tlvince commented on 2010-10-20 17:13 (UTC)

Patch to fix recent Python3 updates:

joelsc commented on 2010-10-12 09:13 (UTC)

Do you still have your error file somewhere? I'm always eager to look at autojump error logs, as my primary goal is to make autojump as stable as possible. Next time you run into such an issue, please file a bug:

bostonvaulter commented on 2010-10-11 20:50 (UTC)

Nevermind, removing ~/.local/share/autojump/* fixed this. My error file was 6.3 MB... Also, can you add install -Dm 644 _j "$pkgdir"/usr/share/zsh/site-functions/_j to the PKGBUILD to enable zsh completion?

bostonvaulter commented on 2010-10-11 20:23 (UTC)

Does anyone else get this error? Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/autojump", line 132, in <module> path_dict=open_dic(dic_file) File "/usr/bin/autojump", line 110, in open_dic path_dict=cPickle.load(aj_file) TypeError: 'str' object does not support item assignment Seems like some type of python incompatability. I'm using python 2.6.5 and bash 5.1.7(2)-release (they are both up-to-date)
