Hi, python-pytz is a dependency of python-tzlocal :

This one is on you, I was just the hand.

Nice work, thanks for your efforts managing the package!

Done. Thank for you help. Feel free to comment what I pushed.

I haven't tested comprehensively, but it seems to me that the following works: 1) modifying the .service file to reflect the correct ExecStart value (/usr/bin/himawaripy) then 2) putting the systemd service and timer file in /usr/lib/systemd/user/ then informing the user at post-install (or wherever in the PKGBUILD you're supposed to do it) to run `systemctl --user enable himawaripy.timer` This is a nice solution as it provides the service for every user, but each user can enable/disable themself. Also, I think you need to add the following dependency: python-appdirs

What if I write an "install" script that copy the systemd in $HOME and enable the timer ?

fabienjuif commented on 2016-02-07 08:22 (UTC)

Yes this is the problem I tried to explain. And yes this is what I tough about. But where should I copy theses systemd unit example files to let people copy them ? /usr/share/himawaripy /etc/himawaripy ... Or just a wiki page maybe ?

I think the problem with this is that the program needs to be called by the user and not by root (or through sudo), since it is updating the user's background and not root's. So I think the systemd unit has to go in the user's folder. I'm not sure how to manage that through a PKGBUILD. I think the README is there so a user can copy the systemd files to their user's config directory if they desire to use systemd (I have seen that some).

Updated but without the systemd files. I don't know how I can put theses files because this is user land, and I can't use a .install script to copy them in $HOME (which? all?). Maybe I should put them in a dir like "/usr/share" and notify the user when the package is installed. What do you think ? What is the Arch phylosophy about this ?
