I haven't had enough time to look at these issues in depth but none of the suggested solutions below worked for me. What worked for me was basically:

$ git clone
#note bellow: make will fail twice because of dependencies. It will build fine on  the 3rd time
$ make
$ make 
$ make
$ make run  #to run the app

unfortunately this will not make a package so you can't install it but it will run if you absolutely need to use dupeguru right away. This is an unmaintained package that's full of issues and temporary fixes. It's a giant mess and it breaks often. Unfortunately, there are no good alternatives.

I came up with a quick fix you can add to the PKGBUILD:

  cd "$srcdir"
  sed -i '277 a\\            try:' src/hscommon/
  sed -i '279s/^/    /' src/hscommon/
  sed -i '280s/^/    /' src/hscommon/
  sed -i '281s/^/    /' src/hscommon/
  sed -i '281a\\            except StopIteration:' src/hscommon/
  sed -i '282a\\                return' src/hscommon/

It's basically changing this part of the script with a try/except statement:

    def iter_by_three(it):
        while True:
            version = next(it)
            date = next(it)
            description = next(it)
            yield version, date, description

into the following:

    def iter_by_three(it):
        while True:
                version = next(it)
                date = next(it)
                description = next(it)
            except StopIteration:
            yield version, date, description

I successfully built afterward and now DupeGuru is working again fine with Python3.7 (so far).

This should be reported upstream, as it's an incompatibility bug with Pyhton 3.7. But the maintainer will have to fix the hsaudiotag3k-1.1.3 dependency issue in the PKGBUILD also... the way it handles it right now doesn't seem very reliable as it fetches from PyPi instead of the AUR?

Ok, thanks. Any idea how to bring this software back to work ? I am desperate, I use it mainly to identify tons of duplicate photos. Or maybe a good linux alternative for this task ? Appreciate assistance :-)

After copying hsaudiotag like so:

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

I get another error:

Generating Help
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/yay_cache/dupeguru/src/hscommon/", line 278, in iter_by_three
    version = next(it)

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

  File "", line 376, in <module>
  File "", line 373, in main
  File "", line 336, in build_normal

    for version, date_str, description in iter_by_three(iter(splitted)):

Apparently, the StopIteration exception changed in pyhton 3.7:

@atescula: this is also related to python having been upgraded from 3.6 to 3.7.

I get another error:

After updating Manjaro KDE today from 17.1.11 to 17.1.12 dupeguru not starting anymore. Also no success trying to reinstall.

Here is the output when starting from terminal:

@AmbientChaos: It's a Python 3.7 incompatibility.

AmbientChaos commented on 2018-08-10 15:23

I'm getting an error during building, does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

karcher commented on 2018-05-28 10:11
