In addition to the AUR packages 'hachoir-core' and 'hachoir-parser', I also had to install 'python2-pyexiftool', and from pacman, 'mutagen' and 'python2' and now it works.

To anybody looking for this package as I was, I just watched the command line errors that python was throwing when I tried to run it, and found that a few more packages are required. Install the optionals, and then also install the AUR packages 'hachoir-core' and 'hachoir-parser', and it should work.

This tool sadly is completely broken, even getting mutagen and pthon-bloatware, it does not seem to want to work.

Sadly the dev is also on sick leave. From MAT's manpage
"Current status

The MAT maintenance and development is currently on hold, mostly for health reasons. I might go back to it at some point in the future.

The current version might have bugs, and doesn't work on Python3: Please avoid using it."

python-pyexiftool does the same thing!

webdawg commented on 2016-02-07 01:04

So trying to get the python2 test to work....

pacman -Sv mutagen
sudo pacman -Sv python-mutagen
sudo pacman -Sv python-distutils-extra
yaourt python-pyexiftool
nano /home/bla/yaourt_temp

yaourt pyexiftool
yaourt python-pyexiftool

python-pyexiftool ends up screwing up....just going to skip this for now

PKGBUILD for pdfrw: (thanks to Works just fine with PDF now.

npouillard commented on 2012-08-26 08:59

This package needs some love please adopt.

Distag commented on 2012-08-01 09:40

Are you sure that your package is correctly built? I know there is a problem somewhere.
Because python-pdfrw is implemented in python2-rst2pdf.
And I have got this error message: "Unable to import python-pdfrw: no PDf support" when I use mat.
Can you check your packet? please.

Distag commented on 2012-07-31 16:37

Yes, I know. There are just python library files to add.
But it would be good that somebody makes it, otherwise the soft don't work correctly.

npouillard commented on 2012-07-30 09:28

@Distag I don't see any release of pdfrw. Should we make a package out of the SVN repo?

Distag commented on 2012-07-29 17:01

Could you build the pdfrw packet, please.

pigmonkey commented on 2012-06-13 16:30

Dependency `perl-exiftool' of `mat' does not exist.

Should it be perl-image-exiftool?

npouillard commented on 2012-06-07 14:55

mat-0.3.2-2 is uploaded.

@Distag: the build error that you refer to might due to the fact that python-distutils-extra use to be a python2 package and is now a python3 one.
I changed python-distutils-extra to python2-distutils-extra accordingly.

Distag commented on 2012-06-06 17:47

Badly built packet!
