In the mimeo script, in the shebang line, the path to the interpreter isn't absolute. That should be the case (See It currently is #!python but should be something like /bin/env python or /usr/bin/pythin.

I worked around my problem. I had another AUR package (goobook), which depends on the AUR package python-xdg. python-xdg conflicts with the Community (non-AUR) package python-pyxdg. python-xdg and python-pyxdg install to the same path if installed via pacman (or AUR PKGBUILD), so installing one means you have to uninstall the other, and any Python package depending on the other will be broken.

I was able to work around the conflict by using a Python venv for python-xdg. See for details on how exactly I fixed it.

mimeo is broken for me, and it looks like it has to do with the python-xdg/python-pyxdg dependency conflict:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/lib/python3.9/", line 197, in _run_module_as_main
       return _run_code(code, main_globals, None,
   File "/usr/lib/python3.9/", line 87, in _run_code
       exec(code, run_globals)
   File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/", line 58, in <module>
       import xdg.BaseDirectory
 ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'xdg.BaseDirectory'

I upgraded another Python package that requires python-xdg. python-xdg conflicts with python-pyxdg. so I removed python-pyxdg. Even though mimeo appears to depend on python-xdg, it appears to be importing the python-pyxdg "xdg" modules. I believe this broke when Arch updated to Python 3.9 earlier this month.

@Xyne indeed, sorry about that. I thought I had tried rebuilding the package, but I was wrong. Rebuilding the package fixed it, thanks for the quick support!

@Fandekasp The AUR only provides PKGBUILDs, not built packages. It's up to the user to rebuild them when necessary. The PKGBUILD itself is not out-of-date. You just need to run makepkg again.

Nevertheless, I may bump the pkgrel when I rebuild the packages for my repo.

Not sure if I should have not flagged the package out-of-date, but it's currently unusable since upgrading the system python from 3.7 to 3.8

$ mimeo /usr/bin/python3: No module named Mimeo

As per this comment: We need to rebuild mimeo against Python 3.8

Is there a completion file for zsh available?

lesiserfg commented on 2019-05-24 05:52

Can you use /usr/bin/python3 instead of python3 cause it makes impossible to use mimeo inside of a virtualenvironment, please?

Xyne commented on 2018-05-30 15:49


What's the output of the following commands?

pacman -Qi mimeo
pacman -Ql mimeo
