Thanks, folks. I added a patch to support recent version of python-slugify, so downgrading it isn't necessary anymore.

pr3martins commented on 2022-05-05 21:35 (UTC)

Following the tip from @r3b311i0n, I just installed downgrade and then changed the python-slugify to version 5.0.2-3, and then I used the following command, pretty intuitive.

sudo downgrade python-slugify

r3b311i0n commented on 2022-05-02 20:32 (UTC)

Doesn't work with new python-slugify (v6.1.2-1).

Hmm, looks like I somehow overwrote the patch file with a bad version after updating the PKGBUILD. Sorry about that. The fixed patch (with the same fix as described by @Kicer) has the correct checksum.

Sincere apologies about that, I'll test more carefully before pushing in the future.

replace '@@ -255,4 +255,4 @@' in patch file with '@@ -255,7 +255,7 @@'

Even with checksums fixed it fails while patching:

incorrect checksum for kcc-py310.patch as of 5.5.2-4

Schnouki commented on 2022-01-24 21:52 (UTC)

Alright, pushed an update with that patch. Thanks for the heads-up, @phayman and @Sakus!

Sakus commented on 2022-01-13 21:42 (UTC)

same error as the reports from 2020 and 2021. Fixed by editing "$HOME/.local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/kindlecomicconverter/" according to @phayman's instructions.

Schnouki commented on 2022-01-12 16:03 (UTC)

@phayman I'm afraid I'm not able to reproduce this issue using Python 3.10 and python-pillow 9.0.0. Could you please share the exact settings or command line that you're using, and maybe your source file as well? (you can email it at if it's not public)

phayman commented on 2021-12-19 22:54 (UTC)

KCC runs into an issue with python 3.10, but the fix mentioned here works for me. Line 258 of /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/kindlecomicconverter/ should be changed from

self.image = ImageOps.autocontrast(Image.eval(self.image, lambda a: 255 * (a / 255.) ** gamma))


self.image = ImageOps.autocontrast(Image.eval(self.image, lambda a: int(255 * (a / 255.) ** gamma)))

@sunaurus You're absolutely right. Fixed now, thanks a lot! :)

sunaurus commented on 2020-11-04 19:57 (UTC)

I get the following error when building:

==> Starting build()...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 16, in <module>
    import setuptools
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'setuptools'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

It seems that makedepends=('python-setuptools') is missing:

kindlegen Download:

No amazon link works as the application Kindlegen is discontinued in favour of a more complete Tool.

I believe libxkbcommon-x11 is a missing dependency
