Hello, do you know if python2 is needed for build? I did build and run the panel itself against python3 with no problems, althrough I did not test configuration gui as it gives error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/bmpanel2cfg", line 3, in <module>
    import bmpanel2
  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/", line 143
    raise KeyError, item
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I suggest using github releases instead:

I got this kind of error, is there any clue to solve this? ==> Starting build()... -- Configuring done -- Generating done -- Build files have been written to: /tmp/makepkg/bmpanel2/src/bmpanel2-2.1pre1/bld [ 4%] Generating bmpanel2.1.gz /home/user/.pyenv/libexec/pyenv: line 40: cd: Not a directory [100%] Built target bmpanel2 a2x: WARNING: --destination-dir option is only applicable to HTML based outputs a2x: ERROR: "xmllint" --nonet --noout --valid "/tmp/makepkg/bmpanel2/src/bmpanel2-2.1pre1/bld/man/bmpanel2.xml" returned non-zero exit status 4 man/CMakeFiles/manpage.dir/build.make:61: recipe for target 'man/bmpanel2.1.gz' failed make[2]: *** [man/bmpanel2.1.gz] Error 1 CMakeFiles/Makefile2:122: recipe for target 'man/CMakeFiles/manpage.dir/all' failed make[1]: *** [man/CMakeFiles/manpage.dir/all] Error 2 Makefile:127: recipe for target 'all' failed make: *** [all] Error 2

Sure, pygtk is in optdeps, because bmpanel2cfg usage is optional, you can edit config files with your text editor just fine.

For me, bmpanel2cfg required the pygtk package, or it throws back 'ImportError: no module named gtk'

Package owned and updated to 2.1pre1-5, fixed runtime build and optional dependencies, added license, better description, minor fixes.

Fixed, I haven't found a good way to specify that I need python 2.6 or python 2.7 in CMake, so I've just added an ugly hack for archlinux only. "-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python2.7", should work now.

I changed raise KeyError, item to raise KeyError(item) to get it working in python3, but now there is no gtk package for python3 -> could you use python2 in the package
