Both of those packages are listed as optional dependencies, which is deliberate: it's possible to run tests from the command line without the plotting and GUI capabilities, so they should not be hard dependencies.

just tried to install today, seems to be missing some deps:

# flent-gui

    import matplotlib
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'matplotlib'

after installing python-matplotlib:

# flent-gui

Starting Flent 2.1.1 using Python 3.11.8.
ERROR: Unable to find a usable Qt version No module named 'qtpy'.

after installing python-qtpy, the gui runs.

Ah, that would be because pypi has removed the support for the signature files entirely (and retroactively, thus breaking packaging files that attempt to remove them):

I'll push an update removing the .asc file from the PKGBUILD, thanks for the report!

Currently fails to build:

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... error: failed to download sources for 'flent-2.1.1-2': error: packages failed to build: flent-2.1.1-2

Maybe links changed? exists, at least.

Yeah, good point; will fix :)

I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to remove python-pyqt5 and python-pyside2 from the optdepends - having all of them listed equally I assumed I'd be good with just one of them, i.e. python-pyqt5 (I wasn't familiar with qtpy), but flent specifically only imports from qtpy and fails if isn't present. The python-qtpy package itself lists python-pyqt5 and python-pyside2 as optdepends again, which I believe should be sufficient overall.

That is standard for PGP-verified sources in AUR. See

If the keyserver retrieval doesn't work you should be able to receive the key from wks. Try:

gpg -v --auto-key-locate=clear,wkd,nodefault --locate-key

Why i need to do this command manually? I got this error.

gpg --recv-keys 435E106CF5FAEB4F gpg: keyserver receive failed: General error

tohojo commented on 2020-07-28 11:37 (UTC)

You'll need to import the key first. Try

gpg --recv-keys 435E106CF5FAEB4F
