On further thought - better yet you can patch the build scripts (in prepare()) to not install the desktop file and you can just install it manually

Not sure if this is the best approach but I fixed it with these changes

Although even with the build not failing, there is still the issue that MPV removed some depreciated APIs kawaii-player used, I did attempt to make an appimage but only got the UI working isolated, the appimage still called/relied on mpv from the host system.

Missing python-setuptools in the makedepends. I also suggest adding python-opengl-accelerate to the optdepends.

Finally, the folder is no longer located under /usr/lib/python3.9/ but is instead 3.10. Instead of hardcoding this value, I suggest referring to the Python package guidelines which shows a better way to determine the location of the site-packages folder:

local site_packages=$(python -c "import site; print(site.getsitepackages()[0])")

then $site_packages will have something like /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages stored in it (but instead of 3.10 it will be whatever the correct version is).

I experience the same kind of error as @arun321.

You are hardcoding the install script to use python3.8, i.e., "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages". But Arch's system python is currently at python3.9.

And yes as @ghotrix had said there are missing dependencies

ghotrix commented on 2021-02-01 15:39 (UTC)

it also depends on python-opengl and python-pyqt5-webengine during runtime

ghotrix commented on 2021-02-01 15:35 (UTC)

will not build for python other than 3.8, can you make this build Python version agnostic?
