Well, thank you again then, and if you happen to change your mind in the future just drop a message!

@grufo, thanks but I don't think that I will use (and support) this package very often.

I just stumbled across a 200M zeitgeist folder in my home profile and wanted to take a look at what is stored inside - Thats why I needed to get this package working for once. ^^ I just wanted to share what I have done in case there are other users who use the gnome-activity-journal more regularly.

Well done, thank you. Would you like to be a co-maintainer of this package?

The patches of course cannot be applied as is to the v1.0.0.

I removed the patches that were linked to the launchpad bugtracker since they "should be" fixed in v1.0.0. But the bugtracker at doesn't give much information about it since the last change in the code there is from 2011 and continues in 2020 at the gnome gitlab server.

I also removed the patches

Since v1.0.0 now uses python 3 I have corrected the dependencies and the build instructions... and now have a PKGCONFIG that builds (at least on my machine) and looks like:

# Maintainer:
# Contributor: Balló György <ballogyor+arch at gmail dot com>

pkgdesc="Tool for easily browsing and finding files on your computer using the Zeitgeist engine"
depends=('python-gobject' 'dbus-python' 'python-pyxdg' 'zeitgeist')
optdepends=('python-pygments: get thumbnail of text files')
validpgpkeys=('7C0FF088052C082B442454171CFC22F3363DEAE3') # Siegfried-Angel Gevatter Pujals

prepare() {
  cd $pkgname-$pkgver

build() {
  cd $pkgname-$pkgver
  python build

package() {
  cd $pkgname-$pkgver
  python install --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1
  install -Dm644 ../$pkgname.appdata.xml "$pkgdir/usr/share/metainfo/$pkgname.appdata.xml"
  rm -r "$pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps"

It seems that at the package has been updated to version 1.0.0.

I don't have much time at the moment for updating the AUR package (it will require some work). If anyone feels like doing it, please post it here.
