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

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mimeo", line 6, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/", line 2612, in run_main

    regex = re.compile(line[2:])

    return _compile(pattern, flags)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/re/", line 294, in _compile
    p = _compiler.compile(pattern, flags)

    p = _parser.parse(p, flags)

    p = _parse_sub(source, state, flags & SRE_FLAG_VERBOSE, 0)

    itemsappend(_parse(source, state, verbose, nested + 1,
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/re/", line 841, in _parse
    raise source.error('global flags not at the start '
re.error: global flags not at the start of the expression at position 2

I have the following package versions: python 3.11.3-1, python-pyxdg 0.28-2, file 5.44-3

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.

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

@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.

Can't upgrade - no access to without help of VPN

You can also use my repo to update automatically if you're not using an AUR helper.

@komex: Reinstalling the AUR package should fix that error. It is caused by a Python upgrade, but your AUR python packages are not aware of the upgrade. You thus need to rebuild all AUR packages using python.

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

How to fix it?
