If anyone is wondering why the source has changed, Dupeguru's website says the maintainer has changed. And so the link https://www.hardcoded.net/dupeguru/ leads us to https://dupeguru.voltaicideas.net/ which in turn has a link to https://github.com/arsenetar/dupeguru/ which is the GitHub repo the sources are downloaded from. So the source change is legitimate.

Might have to fix the python-hsaudiotag3k package (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=python-hsaudiotag3k), in case it needs to be pointed at the python3.7 path, although as far as I can tell, it should install properly already. Might just be a problem with previous installations which were installed in 3.6 path.

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on this package. If it really needs some serious maintainership investment, I'll be around just in case. I can't think of any other program for Linux that does what DupeGuru does. It's a precious package in my opinion.

Edit: The sed hack has just been implemented upstream (into hscommon) so this won't be needed anymore in version 4.0.4, that is, if it ever comes out. User arsenetar seems to have been working on the project (https://github.com/arsenetar/dupeguru/commits/master), albeit at a slow pace and only bug fixes so far. We will see. For now, since we are targeting the latest stable release, I think it's best to keep this workaround in the PKGBUILD. It will be removed for the next actual release.

@cybertron: if you already have hsaudiotag3k installed in your python 3.6 site-packages, you can safely copy it over to the 3.7 site-packages, it should work fine.

sudo cp -r /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/hsaudiotag3k-1.1.3-py3.6.egg-info /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages
sudo cp -r /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/hsaudiotag /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages

I have submitted a request to make this package orphan, so that we can fix it ourselves.

@Ataraxy: thanks for reporting. I have a bunch of other (unrelated) garbage in there too. Could you please list the directories (or files?) in that path you mentioned? I'm trying to narrow-down what exactly is responsible for which "remnant". Also how do you know hsaudiotag and polib are the culprits? There is nothing in their files that suggest they would write anything there. As far as I can see, there shouldn't be anything written to that path from this package either.

Building this package leaves a bunch of garbage files under:

~/.local/lib/python3.7/site-packages

The culprits are hsaudiotag and polib.

@fuan-k,

Thank you for fixing the hsaudiotag3k issue. During the build, I saw: Successfully installed hsaudiotag3k-1.1.3

The entire build now completes, without error, in a clean chroot.

Good work! Cheers

@air-g4p Since hsaudiotag3k can be downloaded directly with pip, instead of fetching the AUR package, I have changed the PKGBUILD accordingly and removed python-hsaudiotag3k from the PKGBUILD dependencies. Although this might not be the best, since the install script is handling this dependency installation "silently"...

I think there was a problem with the arguments given to pip, namely pip install --no-index --find-links=deps -r requirements.txt. There is no "deps" directory, since it was explicitly ignored in the .gitignore file, so I assume that was the original author's way to speed things up by using his locally available packages, which we do not have.

Anyway, it should be fixed now. Sorry for the delay.

Despite having built and installed https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-hsaudiotag3k/ without error, I see this dupeguru build failure within a clean chroot:

==> Installing missing dependencies...

error: target not found: python-hsaudiotag3k

==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.

==> ERROR: Build failed, check /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/user/build

I have no prior instances of dupeguru installed, and this occurs on a fully updated Arch system.

Any suggestions?

From the Athors Gihub site: https://github.com/hsoft/dupeguru/

Current status: Unmaintained

I haven't worked on dupeGuru for a while and frankly, I don't want to. I never had any duplicate problems so I don't even care about the raison d'être of this thing.

I don't want to answer incoming issues and I don't want to let them pile off unanswered either, that feels rude. So here I am, being straightforward about it.

If you're considering using dupeGuru, you might want to give it a try but if it doesn't meet your needs I suggest that you use another program because it's unlikely to ever be improved again.

If you're a developer wanting to pick it up, by all means, do so! Fork it off and release something. I will be more than happy to "officially" point to any fork that remotely looks like a serious effort. I will also be happy to assist if you have questions about the code.

Good bye dupeGuru, Virgil Dupras

Has anyone considered, perhaps, submitting an upstream pull request to fix this package, so that a new release can be tagged without requiring horrible sed hacks to make it build?

Arch Linux values the principle of pushing fixes upstream...

yeah thank you @batou and fuan_k with your both tipps it works :)
