@The-Compiler haha, no problem :) Still use the program every day and love it. Great to know you're keeping it up to date! All the best, Mark.

Better late than never :) Thank you!

@Arvedui I'm, like, 3 years late - but I finally included python-setuptools there.

@marcool04 Whoops, I split building/packaging but didn't actually include the building part... Fixed now.

Thanks and sorry for the delays!

Hi, Just tried to installing this, and it appears the last pkgrel bump commit messed something up; the installed script fails to run with:

# /usr/bin/journalwatch
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/journalwatch", line 33, in <module>
    sys.exit(load_entry_point('journalwatch==1.1.0', 'console_scripts', 'journalwatch')())
  File "/usr/bin/journalwatch", line 25, in importlib_load_entry_point
    return next(matches).load()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 77, in load
    module = import_module('module'))
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/", line 127, in import_module
    return _bootstrap._gcd_import(name[level:], package, level)
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 1030, in _gcd_import
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 1007, in _find_and_load
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 984, in _find_and_load_unlocked
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'journalwatch'

It seems the extra --skip-build is not such a good idea :) Maybe it only works for upgrades? Reverting it works fine anyhow. All the best, Mark.

Please add python-setuptools to makedepends it fails to build in an clean chroot without it.

> the AUR comments aren't really the right place to talk about non-package issues
Got it, sorry for this, I try, and, and can't find place to report bug XD

After set mail_args = "-t", it works like a charm, thanks for your help.

I just released 0.2, you can now do "--loglevel debug" to see the command.

I can't really help you with your exim config I'm afraid. You probably have to keep -t as option so the To:-header gets parsed.

If you still need help I suggest posting to - the AUR comments aren't really the right place to talk about non-package issues ;)

Sorry, forget to set notify on comments.

I set
mail_args = ""
and now nothing output on command line, but still can't receive mail.
When I check the exim log, I see:
2014-09-06 11:23:08 1XQ6ai-000161-Ux => blackhole (RCPT ACL discarded recipients)

I can mail from command line with 'mail' commad, so how do I know journalwatch is running what command actually, so I can test by hand.

Maybe journalwatch can have a debug option :)

You can set
mail_args = -foo
in your ~/.config/journalwatch/config.

Not sure what'd be appropriate for exim4 sendmail... Oh the joy of incompatible sendmail versions.

If you still run into problems, feel free to mail me at - probably a better way to sort it out than here ;)

When I run journalwatch, it is error like the following:
$ journalwatch --since new mail
exim abandoned: unknown, malformed, or incomplete option -toi
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/journalwatch", line 22, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 427, in main
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 419, in run
send_mail(output, since)
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 375, in send_mail
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/", line 944, in communicate
BrokenPipeError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe

I found exim have no "-toi" option. How can I use exim with journalwatch?
