Is it really incompatible with dbus-python!? Because of that I can't use it anymore...

I've found this package from viewing freefilesync maintainer's package, I don't know if anyone is using this or not yet (I'm not), just wanted to get a heads up on a new version (although new version is more than two years old, too).

The package (sadly) doesn't work for me. I'm getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    app = appgui()

    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided by any .service files

Also: could you please use gksudo instead of gksu (This package is the only òne where I'm getting asked my root password and not my own, so I usually don't remember it)? Alternatively I would also be ok with adding a symlink to the (executable) python script in /usr/bin by adding the following lines to the package() function:

chmod a+x ${pkgdir}/usr/share/${pkgname}/
ln -s ${pkgdir}/usr/share/${pkgname}/ ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/${pkgname}

Here's an updated PKGBUILD for version 2.5.11 I've also added an .install file to remove optimized *.pyc files on removal and upgrade.

MD5 checksum checking fails for live-usb-install-2.5.9.tar.gz

@adonisk I'm getting timeouts too, the authors server is not very reliable. I'll see if i can switch to the sourceforge servers.

adonisk commented on 2015-08-16 11:31 (UTC)

It can no longer download the file (403 forbidden)

@Sudowoodo Sorry this took so long, i was on holiday and additionally there is a bug with the latest version of mkaurball preventing me to create the new one. Anyway it is now updated ;)

Version 2.5.3 is out, here is an updated PKGBUILD.
