I cant auto change theme,I must run “Run automathemely”,I already exec systemctl enable --user automathemely.timer

update:I run mkdir -p $HOME/.config/autostart sed 's/(Exec=automathemely)\ --manage/\1/' \ /usr/share/applications/automathemely.desktop >| \ $HOME/.config/autostart/automathemely.desktop fix my issues,now it can change theme automaticly.

But find another issues,KDE theme management was changed.Now no Breeze-dark theme for GTK anymore. LINK: It seems a bug in KDE But we can change the color scheme to switch theme to dark for gtk and qt applications. the fix commit merged 3 month ago. .But I still have issues.I must reboot system to make GTK theme apply.

It appears my PR no longer works for Astral 2.2. Given that does what my PR did and also works for Astral 2.2, I am considering closing my PR.

@WhyNotHugo & @florianmw

This Buildfile uses the PR, its a bit dirty & hacked in but I can install it with it.

# Maintainer: florianmw <>

pkgdesc="Simple, set-and-forget python application for changing between GNOME themes according to light and dark hours."
makedepends=('python-setuptools' "git")

build() {
  git clone
  cd "${srcdir}/AutomaThemely"
  git checkout fix/astral-location-import
  python build

package() {
  depends+=('python-astral' 'python-tzlocal' 'python-schedule')
  cd "${srcdir}/AutomaThemely"
  python install --root="${pkgdir}" --optimize=1 --skip-build
  install -Dm644 -t ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/user ${srcdir}/${pkgname}.service ${srcdir}/${pkgname}.timer

still dosn't work for me tho, because

AttributeError: 'LocationInfo' object has no attribute 'sun'

it seems like the API where it gets the sunrise data dosn't report the sunrise data anymore. but It cloud be that this is just an "regional" api that donst work anywhre outside the states. (like Germany in my case)

@WhyNotHugo: I just found your ticket: it seems there's also a PR open. The Author itself doesn't seem to work actively on the Project, but I've seen PRs get merged. Does the solution work for you? (edited this comment as I just found your ticket)

Regarding your other comment mentioning Arch packaging guidelines ( I was not able to find the passage you're referring to, doesn't look to me like it's against it. Anyways, I removed the automatic setup from install with this commit: a8bd6e47fcb2.

Not starting up for me:

This package automatically enables a systemd timer.

This is against ArchLinux packaging guidelines, and opposite of what every other package in the official repository does.

The right thing to do is merely inform the user on how to enable it, not do it for the user.

Shall I update the package release version in order to force a rebuild? I just did a rebuild and it works for me.
