Wrong python version inside this grass package (symbolic link). It couldn't work like this. Python2 is deprecated in grass 7.8 Line 55 in PKGBUILD should be deleted, it's a nonsense to link python2 inside grass 7.8 ... Install some extension and you will see some problems !

No, everything using python3 calls python3 specifically

PKGBUILD needs refactor : 7.8 support python 3 not python 2.

Line 55 : # Fix for 3rd party python scripts ln -s ../../../usr/bin/python2 bin/python

Running grass :

~ > which python


:~ > ls -lsa /opt/grass/bin/python

Seems even 7.8.1 isn't totally ready for python 3.8 (time module changes). If it becomes an issue, let me know and I'll see about patching it.

There is a ton of problems using 7.8. There is no LTS version on AUR. May be it should be good to use it : Latest stable long term support (LTS) release: GRASS GIS 7.6 source :

7.8 PKGBUILD is up. I can't say I'm positive about the deps, mostly the python ones, but it builds in a clean chroot and runs with some limited testing. If anyone runs into issues, let me know.

Python2 is end of life (EOL; and it is likely python2-gdal was removed in preparation for this. GRASS 7.8 will move things to python3 however GRASS 7.8 has yet to be released( If you are desperate, you could work you way though a downgrade ( but this can be a pain and not recommended.

(Edit: python2-gdal found its way into the AUR)
