Just changing the version works like a charm.

@nobody44 I could do that. Thanks for all your contribution.

Maintainer of git-cola here. Sorry I haven't been able to update the package lately. If anyone still wants to maintain the package, please contact me.

best regards

git-cola-3.4-1 still works fine. If there is anything I can provide you with to help me debug this, please tell me! So far I seem to be the only one struggling, though ;)

The newest version crashes for me:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/qtpy/", line 204, in <module>
    from PySide import __version__ as PYSIDE_VERSION  # analysis:ignore
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PySide'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/cola", line 53, in <module>
    from cola.main import main
  File "/usr/share/git-cola/lib/cola/", line 6, in <module>

@rashyd Are those AUR related issues? If not, report them upstream.

I got two issues with v3.3-1:

1) The dark theme is broken. The env variable GIT_COLA_ICON_THEME=dark and --icon-theme dark don't work. Haven't found workaround yet.

2) The Open With folder context menu intergration with Nemo (cinnamon DE) is broken. When trying to open a folder with Git Cola, the cursor just shows loading icon, no window showed. For a workaround, I created a custom command git-cola -r for the open with command.

git-cola-git is v 3.2 currently, git-cola is v 3.1.

@nobody44 Would you be able to remove the version comparison from the python-pyinotify in the optdepends array? At the moment, it breaks the build and having to edit the PKGBUILD before building is not that convenient.
