@halcek I've added aarch64, enjoy! :)

Can you please add 'aarch64' to the list of supported architectures? Thanks,

everything is smooth with aur 0.7.5. Thanks for your amazing work again:)

geigi commented on 2020-11-14 18:37 (UTC)

Just released 0.7.4 which should fix the issue :)

compicat commented on 2020-11-14 18:32 (UTC)

Can you please check last update? It gives correction error.

I am unable to build on AUR. Some links appear to be broken. I get the following error:

please add gvfs as an optional dependency. It is required to access remote servers(smb, ftp, etc)

Hey @ValuHue,

Very weird. I don't understand how this crash happened and I tried a lot of different and also broken locale configurations. The solution you described is the normal behavior of Cozy. If a translation is not available it will start in english (the default). I really don't know what was happening on your machine but I'm glad it's working now for you. Thanks for all your detailed comments.

ValHue commented on 2020-05-23 11:46 (UTC)

I have verified that if I force start cozy with:

env LANGUAGE=es_ES /usr/sbin/com.github.geigi.cozy

then if it starts correctly. Then all this leads me to think that cozy tries to load the locale of the LANGUAGE variable of the system and if it does not have it it is blocked and that is when it delivers that error.

I think that since it is impossible to have local for all languages, a solution that could foresee similar errors with unsupported languages, would be that by default it starts in English if it does not find the system one.

ValHue commented on 2020-05-23 10:07 (UTC)


I have changed the language to the entire system, and not forcing it with the variable LANG (env LANG) and it works for me. Now that I know why it did not start without giving me an error, I will look at how to make it work in the language that I use. Maybe a translation is necessary?

Thanks for the help.

ValHue commented on 2020-05-23 06:57 (UTC)

@geigi With flatpak I get the same error. I don't get it, right now I'm blocked ...

geigi commented on 2020-05-21 08:46 (UTC)

@ValHue I just tried to reproduce your issue (but on another distro, I don't have a Arch installation currently). I've changed my system language to es_ES and generated the locales. Cozy started fine in Spanish. Then I tried the locales you've provided in your comment but those also just started fine.

Now I'm out of ideas... The language files also do look fine. Maybe it's a gettext issue, is there maybe an update for it? Another thing you can try is installing Cozy from flathub. It would be interesting whether this issue also exists there or only for the AUR packaged version.

ValHue commented on 2020-05-14 16:58 (UTC) (edited on 2020-05-14 17:05 (UTC) by ValHue)

@geigi in /etc/locale.conf I have:


thinking that it was a locale problem and seeing that cozy doesn't have my language I have executed,

env LANG=es_ES.utf8 com.github.geigi.cozy

but it also fails at startup and gives the same error. Even with:

env LANG=en_US.utf8 com.github.geigi.cozy

Any idea?

*I have generated all the locations I have tried

geigi commented on 2020-05-09 23:09 (UTC)

@ValHue What's your system language?

ValHue commented on 2020-04-28 08:13 (UTC)

It doesn't work for me, it gives the following error:

Thanks for the reply, I'm using i3-gaps, so I"ll probably have to create a link manually.

geigi commented on 2020-03-01 18:16 (UTC)

@deadpyxel This is intended. I used cozy-audiobooks for the package name because cozy was already used by another package. Therefore I'm using the reverse DNS name suggested by Gnome: Which desktop environment are you using? The application in the launcher should be named cozy as I provide a .desktop file.

deadpyxel commented on 2020-03-01 02:57 (UTC) (edited on 2020-03-01 02:58 (UTC) by deadpyxel)

The package after installed for me doesn't show as cozy-audiobooks, but as com.github.geigi.cozy, is this intended?

geigi commented on 2020-02-28 07:38 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting, should be fixed now :)

I have version 0.6.13-2 and it keeps trying to update to 0.6.13-1

@metak fixed :)

Fails to start, missing python-distro.

Updated. Thank you for comments

prscoelho commented on 2019-12-10 21:46 (UTC)

This package is currently broken due to the update to python3.8

It seems the actual bugs have been fixed but this current release (0.6.9-1) doesn't work.

Hey, I've got this error being thrown. Any ideas? I presume I need to create selinuxenabled but I don't quite know where.

@Plexcon wrong package, this is cozy the audiobook player not the cloud

the dependencies could not be satisfied: Unable to satisfy the dependence 'nodejs-lts-argon' required by cozy

Thanks for reporting @heimdall, I'll fix this now :)

heimdall commented on 2018-03-17 23:34 (UTC)

I had to install python-cairo as well to get it working. Seems to be a recent regression.
