@ancarius: Thanks, I've now refactored the PKGBUILD to use the newer package() function.

It would appear that there's no package() function defined in the latest PKGBUILD

[*******@****-******* blueproximity]$ makepkg
==> ERROR: Missing package() function in /home/*******/Downloads/blueproximity/PKGBUILD

Package updated to not require all imports to success, one bluetooth and one bluez is enough.

erikw commented on 2014-03-10 21:19

Changing from
import _bluetooth as bluez
import bluetooth as bluez

makes the program start-able. I'll take a closer look asap. Sorry for late replay; I'm busy doing my master's thesis atm.

Same problem, package does not work as of now. @Erikw can you please have a look at this?

Updating to python2-pybluez-0.20-1 breaks this package. It appears that the import of _bluetooth at /usr/bin/ is failing.

@techhat Dependencies are updates in the PKGBUILD!

techhat commented on 2012-11-11 00:32

Had to change python-configobj and python-pybluez to python2-configobj and python2-pybluez to get this to build.

Sorry, missread your comment. Added librsvg to dependencies.

FredericChopin commented on 2011-01-23 09:57

I have no problem running blueproximity without libsvg. Could you tell me, where the dependency is?

daimonion commented on 2011-01-22 21:21

Please put librsvg as dependancy.

this package needs to be updated, as python3 is now the default version used.

an additional dependency is python2, the shebang /usr/bin/ must be changed accordingly (#!/usr/bin/env python2) and in /usr/bin/ "python" must be replaced by "python2" in line 4.
