The package contains idlexlib. I suppose the recent update to python-3.6 is causing this, as it worked with python-3.5

Seems its missing idlexlib? When starting it gives an error so might be a dependency aswell?

I take ownership.
Wrote an email to the dev and he could reproduce the issue.
Will later add the temporary workaround he mentioned until the new version is out

My primary computers are not longer running Arch so I am orphaning this package.

Has someone else a problem with idlex?
Recently I get this error (and a rebuild doesn't fix it)
A problem with 3.4.1? IIRC it worked with 3.4.0

>idlex2 is broken. Its starts idlex with python3, and not with python2.
There was a PKGBUILD in the comments a while ago that dealt with this, but the issue is upstream. I've talked to upstream and they are aware of it, but I don't know if or when it will be fixed.

I think a separate idlex2 package that doesn't conflict with idlex would be optimal.

If you only need idlex2, it's pretty simple to modify the PKGBUILD for that use case.

By using the following PKGBUILD, one can use idlex2 to start idlex with python2 and idlex or idlex3 to start it with python3.

Obviously, this is just qick and dirty hack... and it adds both python versions as a dependency..

But if you just need a working solution, this should work (at least it works for me):

Well, it's a matter of getting libidlex to install in both the python and python2 libraries. It's not clear to me the best way to do it with a PKGBUILD. Basically you need to install it twice, once with python and once with python2.7, then you can just edit the idlex2 file (it's a bash script) and set it to run with python2.

I might have some time to look into it next week.

Special Thanx for the PKGBUILD file.
The dependence need only look like 'python2>=2.7'
Is there possibly a way that i can use python2 and python3?
In the file system so he puts idlex2 and idlex3.
Unfortunately, it is always the same.
Either 2 or 3.
