  • xdotool should be optdepends since it’s not used under Wayland.

  • I don’t know where the python-xlib dependency came from, but the upstream repository only contains “xlib” (case-insensitive) in one place, snap/snapcraft.yaml as a build package, and nowhere else in documentation or source, so it should probably be removed.

  • In theory libkeybinder3 should also be optional since its functionality doesn’t work under Wayland and its calls are mostly disabled under Wayland, but the code does still require it, so that would need to be fixed before it can be made optdepends.

It fixed itself after restart.

Anyone knows about "Launching emote daemon" freeze?

It installs properly and already installed the manimpango via pip, but upon start, nothing happens.

When I run it via the cli, it hangs with "Launching emote daemon" and stays so until I kill it. Any idea what's going on?


After bumping up the pkgrel and rebuilding, it doesn't hang in there. However, can't run it by a keyboard shortcut even after changing :( No errors, nothing.

Note: python-manimpango get installation error after moving to python 3.10.1

Note: Requires a rebuild after moving to python 3.10. It might be a good idea to bump the build number.

Is anyone able to run/use emote on GNOME 40.4.0?

Just as an FYI, this:

Thanks for the detailed report, @vstuart. I'm still investigating why this happens after dependencies are upgraded (possibly something similar to this?) but in the meantime, rebuilding the package makes the error go away.

Happens every time there's a "major" upgrade of Python (eg. from python3.8 -> python3.9). The recommended "fix" for AUR packages is to simply bump the pkgrel. This will forcibly trigger a rebuild for all users of the package, resolving the problem.

Please don't be one of those people that says "you should just force a rebuild on your local machine" either, because that completely ignores the fact that not everyone uses the AUR in the same way, and not everyone is using a "traditional" AUR helper.

Thanks @lkrms, I sent a request. I also wanted to include that it's having problems finding the emote.desktop and can't continue updating. Not sure if it's me or what.
