Hi, I'm getting this error when trying to install this:

 -> error fetching autotiling: Cloning into 'autotiling'...
fatal: invalid branch name: init.defaultBranch = 
     context: exit status 128

@bluemoon, please don't ask for distribution-specific support in AUR first, we triage everything in our github issues. I can't account for i3 edition, but in manjaro sway we rebuilt it based on python 3.10 a few seconds ago ( If you installed from aur, you might want to rebuild.

No idea which version Manjaro uses, and which it used to use previously.

it stoped working today on manjaro i3 21.2.1 for some reason and i have no indecators why it did except the fact that i had a large update yesterday and i found the solution for me it was anaconda i uninstalled it and uninstall then install autotiling again and it works just right anaconda does not have the module i3ipc that is the issue

Please do a on-the-fly renaming of the downloaded tarball.

I think you should add python-wheel to the makedepends array instead of relying on pip.

@boredland - sorry, couldn't confirm. Is everything all right with your python environment? The script should be installed in /lib/python3.9/site-packages/autotiling/. I'm usually on autotiling-git, but the autotiling package installs to the proper location on my machine and works well. On the other hand: possibly it's time to release v.1.2 and update PKGBUILD.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/autotiling", line 33, in <module>
    sys.exit(load_entry_point('autotiling==1.1', 'console_scripts', 'autotiling')())
  File "/usr/bin/autotiling", line 22, in importlib_load_entry_point
    for entry_point in distribution(dist_name).entry_points
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 524, in distribution
    return Distribution.from_name(distribution_name)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 187, in from_name
    raise PackageNotFoundError(name)
importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: autotiling

the only fix for me was to install using pip.
