makepkg stops, looks like they changed location of some files recently. It ran fine about a week ago.

Getting this error, even though I have python-dill installed..

Ahh yes, I forgot to mention that, you have to manually update svg.path with the PKGBUILD i posted there in the comments: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-svg.path#comment-735237

Okay, i see you figured it out already :D

malosasha commented on 2020-03-25 01:22

HI it fails because of outdated python-svg.path package with error

ImportError: cannot import name 'Move' from 'svg.path.path' (/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/svg/path/path.py

It is necessary to manually build python-svg.path as explained here in comments :

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-svg.path/

Development seems to happen in the Beta branch, so i switched to it now and updated all the dependencies... Finally QT5, but now even more dependencies and still a few big ones from AUR.

Let me know if it at least starts now. Otherwise please try to figure out the issue and propose a patch. If someone is interested i can also add you as (co) maintainer here.

I'm having the same exact error as @dale6998. I even tried building from a more recent git commit (on 01/01/2020) and still get the same error when trying to run flatcam.

Think it might have something to do with this bug: https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/16834

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

@basiliscus: It is completely fine to manually bump a package version, that is the right solution. You are just commenting on the wrong package here, the python-sip-pyqt4 package needs the update, so you can just flag that out date (i already did it now).

I had the same issue as toxicfeet. I know this is probably a frowned upon solution, but I just needed the software to work.

The issue appears to be in the sip module, so I had a look around the PKGBUILD for python-sip-pyqt4. It seemed to be using an older version of the package. I changed the pkgver to be pkgver=4.19.19, then ran updpkgsums. That seemed to work, the error stopped showing and flatcam booted up fine.

I imagine that this might cause other errors in the system though, I am not really certain, that is just how I made flatcam boot. I haven't come across any side effects yet.
