The error you reported is due to the hard-coding of paths that was used, because it is expecting the installed files to be in /usr/bin but they are being placed in /usr/miniconda3/bin. I will see if I can find a workaround, but that may take a bit of time so you are going to need to patch/work-around this issue locally for the moment.

Unfortunately, because of how dependencies are resolved, I cannot restrict it to just use the "official" version of python without indicating conflict with all other possible distributions, so that is a non-starter.

Sorry you are having to jump through hoops.

please hardcode the correct python to use, miniconda and other python environments interfere with the installation process.

Apologies for the delay in updating this package. I hope to push an updated version this week.

@aorth: you need to build/install python-debian from AUR as well

aorth commented on 2018-10-15 16:53 (UTC)

I updated this for dput 1.0.2 and Python 3 and it packages fine, but when I run it I get:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'python-debian' distribution was not found and is required by dput

@dolik.rce I am willing to take on maintenance of this package if you would be willing to pass the baton.

Ok, ubuntu by dfault uses this (assuming you have ubuntu/ppa) [ppa] fqdn = method = ftp incoming = ~%(ppa)s login = anonymous

@dolik.rce, it is really necessary to have the @dist at the end (e.g. "vivid"). My config looks like this. The command on launchpad shows "dput ppa:mdeguzis/libregeek-ubuntu" [ppa:user/ppa-name] fqdn = method = ftp incoming = ~user/ubuntu/ppa-name login = anonymous allow_unsigned_uploads = 0

@BoySka: Sorry for replying so late, I had to think this through. I don't think it is a good idea to add functionality to this package, it would then become my responsibility to maintain the additions. I think a proper place for the completion is zsh-completions package. Or you can try to offer your patch to dput developers upstream. Also, looking at your completions, it seems to be rather simple, compared to the bash completion script, which is included in this package directly by upstream. Did you see that one? It should be possible to use that one in zsh as well (see, so that might save some work to both of us.

BoySka commented on 2015-10-12 09:06 (UTC)

Hello, I created a (very simple) zsh completion for dput. You can get the patch here: or you can just add me as a contributor, I suppose (don't have much experience with the new git-based version of AUR)

@jsnlry: I am using dput to upload to ppa and it works just fine. My config looks like this: [upp-vivid] fqdn = method = ftp incoming = ~<my-id>/<ppa-name>/ubuntu/vivid login = anonymous allow_unsigned_uploads = 0

jsnlry commented on 2015-03-19 21:56 (UTC)

I tried to upload a package to ppa, but I always got "No host ppa:myid/main found in config". Details on Stackoverflow: Would be great if you could help me to fix this.

@JonnyJD: You're right, I overlooked that the patches are only modifying the hashbang line... I changed it to single sed command, thanks for making me aware of this.

JonnyJD commented on 2013-01-27 15:10 (UTC)

You can use sed -i -e '1s|/usr/bin/python$|/usr/bin/python2|' $pkgdir/usr/bin/dcut sed -i -e '1s|/usr/bin/python$|/usr/bin/python2|' $pkgdir/usr/bin/dput instead of the extra patch files. But it also works with the patches.

The dput_0.9.6.2_all.deb is already deleted from the debian ftp. Currently the stable version is and the unstable version

DarwinSurvivor commented on 2011-03-18 18:20 (UTC)

Needs a patch to put in python2 bang line.
