@jose1711 since this is broken (as per your link), could you please patch this package?

EDIT: Actually the patch in the link doesn't fix it for me EDIT2: The comments fix it though

It fails to crop some images because exiftool isn't installed. The project's says:

"exiftool to clear the EXIF rotation flag from jpeg output images (debian package: libimage-exiftool-perl)"

The corresponding Arch package is perl-image-exiftool. Once I installed that package, it successfully cropped the images that were making it fail before.

Here is the console output from the fails:

Packaging error:

cropgui: /sbin exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)

Install to /usr/bin instead and do nothing at all about /sbin (it is a symlink to /usr/bin on a proper Arch Linux system).

@jose1711 that was it! removed `/bin` from the front of my `PATH` and it worked. Thanks a lot!

actually, quite the opposite. this is how it looks on my system:

➜  / which python2

PATH env variable on your system likely has /usr/bin preceded by /bin. this does not make sense though as /bin is only a symbolic link to /usr/bin. i suggest you check and fix your PATH in /etc/profile, ~/.bashrc or the-like. this should fix package building as well.

@jose1711 well, seems it's nothing unexpected:

$ which python2
