Added new dependency.

CanalGuada commented on 2019-10-10 15:25

Hi ! Missing dependency (after merging pull request #35): python-pulse-control

WhyNotHugo commented on 2019-09-10 08:08

Sorry about that; I had the changes done locally month ago and never remembered to push them. Should work fine now.

Hmm, getting;

  -> Cloning caffeine-ng git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/home/milk/.cache/yay/caffeine-ng-git/caffeine-ng'...
Username for '': 

Is the right repo url used?

TankMissile commented on 2019-08-30 16:34

The url needs to be changed, as the gitlab repository does not exist. Also, don't forget to add python-pulse-control as a dependency. Someone did the work for us and made a package for it already.

I CLEARLY explained why your setup was broken in the previous post.

A big thank you to @hobarrera! Hi all! Helped here it is:
sudo pacman -R python-ewmh python-xlib caffeine-ng && sudo pacman -S python-docopt python-setproctitle python-wheel python-xlib && yaourt -S python-ewmh caffeine-ng

If you see an error like:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'XXXXXXXX' distribution was not found and is required by caffeine-ng

Then you probably need to rebuild and reinstall packages build with python3.5 (due to the recent python3.6 upgrade).

You can find a list of these packages running this command:

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.5
