The other version of blink worked, thanks.

Fortunately, I haven't come across any problems with this version of the Blink.

There's no package like 'googleapiclient' and you could install it via pip.
[sudo pacman -S python2-pip; sudo pip2 install google-api-python-client]

!! However I don't advise you to touch these things manually. !!

Probably it would do the trick, but there's also a github version of Blink, which is provided by our fellow; ogarcia. Try to install his PKGBUILD first then try to irrevocably mess up your system :D

$ blink
:0: UserWarning: You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module: 'No module named service_identity'. Please install it from <> and make sure all of its dependencies are satisfied. Without the service_identity module and a recent enough pyOpenSSL to support it, Twisted can perform only rudimentary TLS client hostname verification. Many valid certificate/hostname mappings may be rejected.

Good point!
Thank you for your help. I updated the PKGBUILD.

Hi, thanks for offering this package. The PKGBUILD can drop some dependencies though.
python2-sipsimple depends on python2-application (which installs python2), python-otr, python2-eventlib and python2-msrplib (which takes care of installing python2-gnutls and twisted).
So to summarize: depends=('cython2' 'libvncserver' 'python2-cjson' 'python2-gmpy2' 'python2-pyqt' 'python2-sipsimple')
