Clean chroot build fails. Python-installer package is missing from build dependencies. @otreblan please have a look at @yochananmarqos comment. His PKGBUILD has correct dependencies.

0.20.33-3 doesn't build anymore for me:

Neither python-setuptools nor python-wheel are runtime dependencies. Most of the optional dependencies are duplicates of python-pywebview's optional dependencies. See my improved PKGBUILD.

After Arch upgraded to Python 3.11, previous installations of legendary don't launch anymore:

$ legendary --help
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/importlib/metadata/", line 563, in from_name
    return next(

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/legendary", line 33, in <module>
    sys.exit(load_entry_point('legendary-gl==0.20.32', 'console_scripts', 'legendary')())
  File "/usr/bin/legendary", line 22, in importlib_load_entry_point
    for entry_point in distribution(dist_name).entry_points

    return Distribution.from_name(distribution_name)

    raise PackageNotFoundError(name)
importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: No package metadata was found for legendary-gl

I understand it's just a matter of rebuilding the package, but perhaps you could intentionally bump pkgrel to force a rebuild for non-tech savvy users.

Hello, @otrebian, current version is completely unusable. Games won't install. The updated version 0.20.29 fixes those issues. The package only needs an update. Thanks for maintaining the package and sorry to bother you.

StopIteration is thrown when listing games

$ legendary list-games
[cli] INFO: Logging in...
[Core] INFO: Trying to re-use existing login session...
[cli] INFO: Getting game list... (this may take a while)

  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/legendary/utils/", line 60, in generate_aliases
    first_word = next(i for i in game_parts if i not in ('for', 'the', 'of'))

I'm not sure if it's the issue of legendary itself since I can't find a related issue.
