This package is not officially supported by the Bottles Developers. Even though some of those developers are package maintainers, support is offered by the package authors who will make sure it is handled in the best possible way. They will diagnose the issues and report the issues to the development team if they are not related to the package.

@costor you need to install them from the AUR and rebuild when there is a major python update

I needed to run the following or else Bottles wouldn't start: pip install patool fvs vkbasalt-cli

I am trying to install bottles for the first time and the installation fails with:

The githhub ticket bug prompt says to not open bug reports from packages so leaving this here.

It is a fairly minor bug, but breaks the Launch Options dialog until relaunched.

Full bug report according to GH repo formatting:

When clicking Save in Launch Options:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/bottles/bottles/frontend/widgets/", line 202, in update_programs
  File "/usr/share/bottles/bottles/frontend/views/", line 287, in update_programs
    raise TypeError("config param need BottleConfig type, but it was %s" % type(config))
TypeError: config param need BottleConfig type, but it was <class 'str'>

When trying to open Change Launch Options again:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/bottles/bottles/frontend/widgets/", line 134, in show_launch_options_view
    dialog = LaunchOptionsDialog(self, self.config, self.program)
  File "/usr/share/bottles/bottles/frontend/windows/", line 85, in __init__
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'Parameters'

the key point here is that you'll have to do a full rebuild (that's important) not from a cached one neither from existing build files

General advice; always clean makepkg folders, see -c and -C options of makepkg

hey guys im sorry for being stupidity foolish, so apparently the advice of rebuilding a python packages is accurate, the key point here is that you'll have to do a full rebuild (that's important) not from a cached one neither from existing build files, but it has to be a clean\full rebuild. ps that's once again i was proved that Linux community is the best one

I have same bug as nPHYN1T3 too. I've rebuild all packages that uses python. upd: After the vkbasalt-cli update, bottles started working

ivdok commented on 2023-05-14 06:00 (UTC)

@brombinmirko Since I can't file bug with upstream due to using this package, how do I report an issue with being unable to run applications from "Add Shortcuts", but "Run Executable" working fine? Running flathub package is out of the question.

loxothrone commented on 2023-05-12 18:34 (UTC)

@lotation the package builds just fine, thnx, im getting the same traceback as nPHYN1T3 down here, i've rebuild that phyton crap but still it wont run

lotation commented on 2023-05-12 06:49 (UTC)

@loxothrone what are you talking about? I built and tested the package in a clean chroot environment so it ain't broken. Did you rebuild all the python AUR packages as suggested by FabioLolix? What's the error you are getting while building bottles?
