Hi, for the next update you can use this PKGBUILD, it builds from source and does not hardcode any python version:

# Maintainer: Zhuoyun Wei <>
# Contributor: AlphaJack <alphajack at tuta dot io>

pkgdesc="Web interface for beancount"
makedepends=("python-build" "python-installer" "python-wheel" "python-setuptools" "python-setuptools-scm")

 cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
 python -m build --wheel --no-isolation

 cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
 python -m installer --destdir="$pkgdir" dist/*.whl

package() uses /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/ but current python is 3.11

Please add python-setuptools as a dependency. It throws the following error without it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fava", line 5, in <module>
    from fava.cli import main
  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/fava/", line 4, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import DistributionNotFound
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

After recent system update fava began to fail with

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/google_api_core-2.3.2-py3.10.egg-info/PKG-INFO'

I'm not sure what fava has to do with google but downgrading python-google-api-core from 2.3.2-1 to 2.3.0-1 has helped.

@AlphaJack Thank you for pointing out. Fixed.

You should replace the python installation path to conform with python 3.9, otherwise it throws the error that xuanwo met

Michitux commented on 2020-01-06 16:33 (UTC)

fava needs to depend on python-simplejson, otherwise you get strange JavaScript errors due to improperly serialized objects (see for upstream dependency definition).

xuanwo commented on 2019-11-22 05:31 (UTC)

fava looks like need python-jaraco, and python-pip cloud be a makedepends?

@xuanwo Please rebuild the package.

Python 3.8 is in Community, fava failed to start for:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fava", line 6, in <module>
    from fava.cli import main
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'fava'
