Thank you!

I also updated the description to make it more clear.

Please kindly add python2 as depends. Mainly for information purposes. It is not at all obvious that this is a Python 2 bindings library and not a Python 3 one.

Took me a while (I used clean-chroot-manager and had to ccm s a bunch of packages.. is there a way to automatically build dependencies from the AUR?) and you are right...

Was about to write what to do now but turns out that makepkg -csi worked to let pygtk create the file (from the description I thought that -c cleans leftovers after build so threre shouldn't have been a difference, huh?).
Well, now I got gnome-python installed.

I tested in a clean chroot and I can confirm that pygtk generate that file. Can you try cleaning everything (build directory, source files) and rebuild fresh?

schrmh commented on 2023-02-24 20:09 (UTC)

Yeah, I tried the AUR one first. I used paru but now tried it again with makepkg -si and I still don't get the file.

How did you install it? I'm using pygtk package from the AUR which does generate it.

schrmh commented on 2023-02-24 14:20 (UTC)

Yep, I also looked at the newest pygtk version ( and it looks like that file doesn't exist anymore in the archives.

/usr/share/pygtk/2.0/defs/gdk-types.defs that file is part of pygtk. Can you check if it's installed and maybe try to reinstall it?
