ERROR Missing dependencies:
    jaraco.text -> inflect -> pydantic>=1.9.1

I got this. I ran pip install setuptools, observed there was a conflict with some other packages, uninstalled them, and now it works.

Although it seems weird to me that the AUR build isn't insulated from the system python library versions, maybe it's my fault for using pip.

comicthumb is not included in package by upstream. Moreover it wasn't ported to Python 3 in upstream. It was adapted in mcomix3 fork, but changes weren't merged in upstream for some reason.

It looks like the comicthumb thumbnailer is no longer included in the package as of version 2.0.1. Any particular reason why, or was it an oversight?

python-setuptools is needed in makedepends=().

TypeError: Color.init() takes 4 positional arguments but 5 were given

is known issue if you have config from old version. Remove one value from "bg colour" and/or "thumb bg colour" array in .config/mcomix/preferences.conf to fix it.

Hello, there's a missing dependency: python-wheel build can't be done without it (I don't know if it is required after)

and after installation it have this error: ❯ mcomix Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/mcomix", line 8, in <module> sys.exit(run()) File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/mcomix/", line 187, in run window = main.MainWindow(fullscreen = opts.fullscreen, is_slideshow = opts.slideshow, File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/mcomix/", line 125, in init self.set_bg_colour(prefs['bg colour']) File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/mcomix/", line 1000, in set_bg_colour self._event_box.modify_bg(Gtk.StateType.NORMAL, Gdk.Color(*colour)) TypeError: Color.init() takes 4 positional arguments but 5 were given

If you have a solution?
