.. well, this patch is already in the forked git repo used, sorry for the inconvenience, current problem is different:

install: cannot stat 'man/droopy.1.gz': No such file or directory

It's broken, upload failing:

TypeError('DroopyFieldStorage.__init__() takes from 1 to 11 positional arguments but 12 were given')

This patch fixes it:

(But be aware, that cgi.FieldStorage will vanish in Python 3.13)

I'm not interested in maintaining this pkgbuild either, just fixing it

I've abandoned the package, feel free to adopt and fix it.

Sry that I'm just looking back to this excellent package and find some applicable patches that should be merged long ago, but not in favor of maintain it.

and you need to place yourself as #Maintainer and move Tinxy as #Contributor

  • the license need to be installed in the license need to be installed in ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/
  • git is missing from makedepends
  • no need to gzip manpages, it is automatically done by makepkg
  • the pkgver() is wrong, see
  • provides=(droopy) could be added

Due to an upstream error running droopy currently results in ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'macpath'. For a solution see

Alternative quick fix if you don't deal with apple devices:
Run sudo sed -Ei 's/import macpath|, macpath//' /usr/bin/droopy
