@boltgolt, sorry, but you did not answer comments a long time.

Interesting to see an orphan request filed here by @komex without emailing me first. If you have to time to update the package here just contact me and I'll add you as co-maintainer. I'm sorry that i don't monitor the AUR comments closely enough, I'm more active in the GitHub repo

@ahoneybun_76 they are effectively looking for a maintainer, see

Maybe you should post an issue on Github if you're feeling like taking over? We'd all be very grateful!

I'm checking in as it looks like you need a maintainer?

python-opencv is essential

I can confirm python-opencv needs to be added as a dependency.

Raised PR#528 to add the python-opencv dependency.

opencv has split of it's python parts since opencv 4.5.2-2, they are now available as python-opencv. This will need to be included as a dependency of Howdy.

extra/qt5-base is missing as a dependency

renyuneyun commented on 2020-12-03 16:35

@teaper I don't feel that's the right way -- howdy already includes the dependency of python-dlib (AUR) package.

Another possible cause is that python-dlib was built against Python 3.8, while Python in Arch just upgraded to 3.9. Rebuilding and then reinstalling python-dlib will fix this.

(But interestingly, the python 3.9.0-1 package was built on 2020-10-08. I installed my system on 2020-11-10, so I'm pretty certain that python was 3.8 at that point. Probably the package directly moved from testing to extra?)
