@crazybit: As the README states, this can be used with PyQt5 or PySide2. They're both optional dependencies of python-qtpy.

Having said that, since python-pyqt5 is much more common and Qt6 is becoming more prevalent, it does make sense to add it as a hard dependency. Turns out Fedora, Gentoo and openSUSE do as well.

crazybit commented on 2022-10-28 00:04 (UTC)

git-cola requires PyQt5 5.6 or newer. Without this, it will crash and remind the user to install it. python-qtpy is not enough, please add python-pyqt5 to deps. See for confirmation.

Worth noting that pyqt6 crashes git-cola, so it must be pyqt5.

Thank you very much for maintaining this pkg!

@yochananmarqos Thank you :) I was able to install.

@takeshi2010: I've temporarily disable the tests for now until the issue is resolved.

takeshi2010 commented on 2022-09-01 21:46 (UTC)

Couldn't install it on a fresh system install:

E       AttributeError: module 'flake8.options.config' has no attribute 'ConfigFileFinder'

/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/ AttributeError
114 failed, 188 passed in 6.62s

This seems linked to: - -

I'd appreciate any help, txs :)

Note: install this with an AUR helper, as it has multiple dependencies (in AUR) and GPG checks.

The signature is GOOD. gpg relies on DNS/resolv.conf set up correctly and because I didn't properly RTFM it was failing on address resolution. @crazybit - check Systemd-resolved#DNS wiki, you likely missed the same step as I did. Sorry for disturbance.
