I think unzip needs to be added to the package dependencies, Minigalaxy requires it for installation.

EDIT: Looks like an open bug, see this issue. Workaround is to manually set LANG:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 minigalaxy

I get an error on startup. Is there some missing dependancy in the PKGBUILD?

Since I no longer use Arch, I'll have to ask the community to continue my work on this. I'll disown the package, please be kind to it.

I must be missing a python package, I would guess. Or a version of something?

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-10-08 21:16 (UTC)

@jdarnold: It builds fine for me.

I'm not able to install this:

makepkg -si

@sharkwouter: Okay, I'm dumb. I updated to 0.9.3 with my own PKGBUILD before you pushed your commit and didn't notice you added the rm -rf tests. It's in the wrong place, FYI. It should be in a prepare() function.

sharkwouter commented on 2020-03-10 22:02 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos I am not able to reproduce this:

[wouter@wouter-arch minigalaxy]$ tar -tvf minigalaxy-0.9.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tests
tar: usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tests: Not found in archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

It is in the source package, but not in the Arch package which is build. Could you try rebuilding in a clean directory?

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-03-10 20:08 (UTC)

@sharkwouter: What deletes what, now? It does indeed install it:

    └── __pycache__
        ├── game.cpython-38.pyc
        └── __init__.cpython-38.pyc

sharkwouter commented on 2020-03-10 19:40 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos it does not actually include the tests directory when running makepkg. It deletes it first.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-03-10 18:47 (UTC)

This should not be installing the tests directory in site-packages, see Python package guidelines.

I added the following to the package() function for now:

    local site_packages=$(python -c "import site; print(site.getsitepackages()[0])")
    rm -rf "$pkgdir/$site_packages/tests"

works perfectly
