rosenberg: You likely installed a new version of Python; you probably have more Python packages than mimeo broken. You'll need to reinstall mimeo (and potentially many more Python packages) to your new Python version's tree to fix this.

This is not working anymore:

❯ mimeo
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mimeo", line 5, in <module>
    from Mimeo import run_main
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'Mimeo'

It looks like is down, or at least is not responding to HTTPS requests (522 is connection timed out, and appears to be an internal server/5xx error in this case). My guess is the service behind Xyne's reverse proxy is down, and rather than refusing connections it's just timing out.

I've had numerous problems with the 2023 version of mimeo, so I've reverted to 2022.7-3, and pinned it until Xyne will address my concerns on this forum poste.

Is there something that should be fixed in this package? I have the following error when I execute mimeo:

mimeo --add category/type app.desktop doesn't default the applications, but rather adds it to added associations. I don't see any point of it. Nor there is an option under mimeo that sets the mimetype under [Default Applications] section.

the issue still remains 😿

@vlas I'll send a message to the site host. It seems a few people have been blocked recently.

vlas commented on 2022-07-22 12:09 (UTC)

@ectospasm: Of course I use it, lets look on PKGBUILD: source=(

ectospasm commented on 2022-07-21 01:02 (UTC)

@vlas: Instead of using Xyne's repo, just download the PKGBUILD from the AUR directly. It's Python so there shouldn't be too much to compile.
