Sorry, I have no time to maintain this package.

You should add python-pyside as a dependency. Otherwise, I had the following traceback. Thanks.

ImportError: Could not import backend for traits
Make sure that you have either the TraitsBackendWx or the TraitsBackendQt
projects installed. If you installed Mayavi with easy_install, try
easy_install <pkg_name>. easy_install Mayavi[app] will also work.

If you performed a source checkout, be sure to run 'python install'
in Traits, TraitsGUI, and the Traits backend of your choice.

I installed vtk-py3-qt4 using your prebuilt package. But even then for mayavi I get

I need custom version of vtk built with python3 and qt4. The one from official repos will not work.
I will add original vtk to conflicts soon.
What problems do you have with building vtk?

Thanks for creating/maintaining this package!

This builds VTK, which is in the aur. But if one of these is installed they do not report conflict and the second one installed fails to build. Maybe add VTK as a dep for this instead of downloading and building?
