@iruoy: How do you figure? I'm not seeing any references to gobject in the codebase, the requirements.txt has no mention, and an venv installation via pip doesn't pull it in.

This package also requires python-gobject

This package follows the latest upstream release. Please bug upstream about releasing version 10 and I'll happily update the package then.

2jazztickets python2-dnspython added

2gbabin python2-xdg added

gbabin commented on 2018-03-04 22:03

Please add python2-dnspython to dependencies as indicated in the requirements.txt file in the source repository.

Also, this package includes /usr/bin/linkchecker-gui which seems weird since there is a separate linkchecker-gui package.

Finally, this package should probably be named linkchecker-git.

Appart from that, it works, so thank !

Add python2-xdg to dependencies

Needs a dependency to `pyxdg`:

You must be missing something because when building in a chroot, I get the following fail:

Also, per this commit [0] fixing this issue [1], LinkChecker won't work unless you have `python2-requests<2.15`.

The project was divided into two parts:
1. linkchecker (Command line version)
2. linkchecker-gui (GUI version)

In AUR present both versions.

Any chance to get an updated version?
