After a recent update of what? System updates without canto. Just canto updated?

Archeon commented on 2017-01-24 09:08

After a recent update, I now get the following error message when running canto-curses:

$ canto-curses
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/canto-curses", line 3, in <module>
from canto_curses.main import CantoCurses
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'canto_curses'

The 0.9 release of canto-{curses, daemon} is near. In a blogentry jmiller made it clear, that canto-0.7 shouldn't be used anymore.[0]
In addition the old canto homepage is gone, Information too. Bug reports are piling up and won't get fixed.
So it's advised to switch (if not already done) to the 0.8 branch. Lot of changes. Read older blog posts for more information.

Here the links for the new versions.[1][2]

Relativley soon I will file a merge request and this PKGBuild will be gone.

Would be a possebility.
But not necessary in my opinion. It won't be developed any further, but some people might prefer it over the new 0.8 version.
It's working, and 0.7 and 0.8 can be installed at the same time (won't conflict)

Diego commented on 2013-04-06 06:35

We can ask to merge canto into canto-curses... in that way all votes of canto will go into canto-curses.
I have disown the package

TrialnError commented on 2013-04-05 23:49


As I wrote before. Maybe it should be an install file added, which informs about canto 8.x
Canto 7.10 won't be developed any further

Diego commented on 2013-04-04 16:36

adopted... So... try to solve all together all the problems that are there: come on, report!

TrialnError commented on 2013-03-06 23:33

With 0.8.4 (should have done that with 0.8.3) I added versioned depends (canto-daemon).
It's not a must, but to use all new additions you will need the recent canto-daemon

TrialnError commented on 2012-07-29 21:03

Could you push the pkgrel version and add an install file with an postupgrade entry to inform users about the other pkgbuilds?

TrialnError commented on 2012-07-26 11:15

Uploaded the 2 PKGBuilds for the canto 0.8 release. Git-versions will follow
Both versions can coexist, so if someone want to stay with canto 0.7.* it won't be a problem

TrialnError commented on 2012-07-25 15:54

Maybe I will upload the new pkgbuilds later (If you aren't working on it)
0.7 and 0.8 can coexist und building 0.8 needs 2 PKGBuilds. Should be the best solution

Canto got an update:

Already had it as python2-chardet. With repo updates it seems it's now a required dependency though.

N30N commented on 2010-12-10 03:06

silenc3r, the PKGBUILD already had/has python2-chardet listed.

silenc3r commented on 2010-12-10 00:17

change "python-chardet" to "python2-chardet" in pkgbuild

N30N commented on 2010-11-02 18:41

Sorry for the delay (hadn't had the time to update in a while).

fsckd commented on 2010-10-19 14:15

There's no need for all those seds. Just change three lines in the PKGBUILD:

depends=("ncurses" "python2" "python-chardet")


python2 install --root=${pkgdir} || return 1

acoolon commented on 2010-10-19 11:15

Modified PKGBUILD for python2:
Still does not work as there are some errors running (2.6 vs. 2.7)
Workarround to get canto running (as root):
sed -i 's:/usr/bin/env python:/usr/bin/env python2:' /usr/bin/canto*

hcs commented on 2010-10-19 09:50

Needs update to work after Arch Python upgrades, it uses "python" which is python3.1

N30N commented on 2010-08-06 21:44

B, Yup dunno how that crept in.

Anonymous comment on 2010-08-02 21:10

Please replace $startdir/pkg and $startdir/src with $pkgdir and $srcdir :).

Anonymous comment on 2010-05-25 01:06

thanks of all fixed

N30N commented on 2010-05-25 00:48

See the release log for 0.7.9 as to why I had left it in and why you two were having the problems:

I have had high CPU at times.

Also, I think the release notes state that he put feedparser directly into his code, so i assume that it's no longer a dependency.

And I get the same as Havanna now, the global name 'feedparser' is not defined error, and only a couple of my old feeds work.

Anonymous comment on 2010-05-21 11:44

New feed
Exception trying to get feed : global name 'feedparser' is not defined


N30N commented on 2010-05-20 14:39

I've not had a problem with it. Try asking on IRC or the mailing list:

fsckd commented on 2010-05-15 09:06

Does anyone else see canto periodically have very high CPU usage?
