@csslayer Yeah, it's reasonable, but till the end of February I don't have much time for it. Maybe some time later I will do it.

Would you mind make this package a split package that contains keyman's library and ibus-keyman?

Fcitx5 also has keyman support but I don't want to pull in ibus as dependency when building fcitx5-keyman. Thanks!

Could you please add python-installer to the makedepends?

Sorry for the slow reply.

I tried this and got the following error:

AttributeError: module 'httpcore' has no attribute 'CloseError'

After working through some other dependency issues.

I will try using a venv to follow the PKGBUILD manually and see whether that works sometime in the next few days.

I have tested building the PKGBUILD in chroot, no errors.

km-package-get is written in Python, so it's most likely the problem is with some Python libraries.

Try running the code directly, it should work without warnings:

mkdir keyman && cd keyman
wget ""
tar -xf ./keyman-16.0.142.tar.gz
cd keyman/linux/keyman-config
./km-package-get --version

The build fails for me on Arch with the error mentioned before:

help2man: can't get `--help' info from ./km-package-get

However, I have tried rebuilding all the python dependencies without it fixing the issue. I also tried poking around my python directories for packages on older versions of python, with no luck. I was wondering if anyone has encountered this case and could advise on troubleshooting steps.

Recent update of Manjaro (2023-06-04) introduced Python 3.11, so the compilation of Keyman can fail with the message:

help2man: can't get `--help' info from ./km-package-install

It means you need to rebuild old python libraries. Most likely (but not limited to) these ones:

  • python-timeout-decorator
  • python-url-normalize
  • python-requests-cache

For additional instructions, check this reddit.

Fixed GCC 13 bug, checked in clean chroot.

@spiritomb Thank you very much for the log. It seems the main difference is that you use gcc 13 while I'm still on gcc 12 (Manjaro). I have fixed this regression, but one problem still need to be solved. I will try to finish it in 2-3 days.
