Please do not flag out of date unless the package is behind the upstream version. If you're having trouble launching menulibre due the following error, reinstalling the package should fix it. Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/menulibre", line 40, in <module> import menulibre ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'menulibre'

@rogeriotds, I bumped the pkgrel so the package will rebuild for python 3.11.

Hello. After updating python to version 3.11, menulibre stopped working.

Thanks @yochananmarqos!

@jonian: Yes, but you should add an epoch:

@yochananmarqos, you are right! Any suggestions? Can I downgrade the package?

yochananmarqos commented on 2023-05-01 14:38 (UTC)

@jonian: 2.3.1 is a development release, not a stable release.

This works for me!

Menulibre ZIP Download (/home/tamara/Downloads/):

unpack /home/tamara/Downloads/menulibre-master/

Install: sudo python3 install

@lesebas: After studying what you shared along with Why you shouldn't invoke directly, I see your PKGBUILD is indeed a viable alternative to using distutils-extra for this package. However, you seem to be the only one having an issue with the current PKGBUILD which will still work until Python 3.12 is out, probably.

In the future, I imagine the Arch Python package guidelines would end up looking something like this using Build and Pip:

build() {
  cd "$_name-$pkgver"
  python -m build

package() {
  cd "$_name-$pkgver"
  PIP_CONFIG_FILE=/dev/null pip install --isolated --root="$pkgdir" --ignore-installed --no-deps dist/*.whl

The recommendation in python package guidelines about pip are pretty old (they are speaking about the bug related .pyo that has been solved since 2017). It's clearly recommended into official python documentation to use pip :

See the discussion on python packaging guidelines about pip (section 6 :Future of Python packaging in Arch Linux?) :

However is there any clue why menulibre library does not install with the current PKGBUILD (I've tried several uninstall/reinstall but that definitely doesn't work for me)?

@lesebas: Using Pip should be avoided and that is not the way to do it. See Python package guidelines/.
