I also ran into the the checksum issue. Using yay, the checksum verification can be skipped with:

yay -S mnemosyne --mflags '--skipchecksums'

Not sure if the commit was ever c5a57..... maybe the author force-pushed a new commit?

Anyways, pacman is failing to install with the PKGBUILD as it is currently..

@Lukas1818: I've followed your suggestion and updated the PKGBUILD accordingly. Let me know if you have any issues :-)

@billypilgrim I do not think waiting until the next release make sense. At the current state the application can not be used by anyone who has not already installed python-googletrans. So this package is useless for many users at the moment.

Furthermore the pull-request was already merged to the upstream.

Hi CI-Lukas1818. Thanks for doing this. I think I'll hold off on updating the PKGBUILD until the upstream maintainer releases a new version though (hopefully incorporating these patches) before updating.

@billypilgrim I have created a pull request, which make both packages optional.#201

Using the following patch should fix the python-httpx issue:

LuckyTurtleDev commented on 2021-09-08 17:11 (UTC)

@billypilgrim I had already create an issue for this: #200

They do not have any interest to implementate this. So if we would like to have this features, we must create our own path. May the mnemosyne maintainer will accept a merge request.

billypilgrim commented on 2021-09-08 13:03 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification @Lukas1818.

Neither of the issues you raise involve any changes I could make to this package, however. It looks like the python-httpx issue has already been mentioned on the python-googletrans page, so hopefully a fix is in hand. You're right that this should be optional functionality though -- how about raising an issue with the mnemosyne folks upstream?

@billypilgrim I think n1ghtmare does mean the python-httpx package, which is a dependency of python-googletrans. The problem is that python-googletrans is not compatible with the current python-httpx package and need an outdated version of it.

It would be very nice if python-googletrans and python-gtts will be only optimal dependencies, but sadly mnemosyne does not allow this.

May user can apply this patch manual, if they do not need google translate:
