@webmeister: all dependencies for a new version are now up-to-date in AUR. Let me know if I can help with a new package release.

Here's an updated PKGBUILD:

Please note that this relies on the following packages, which are currently out-of-date, to be updated:

  • python-pyqtchart
  • python-gpiozero

mu insists on pinning dependency versions in its, which is (besides being always bad) not working with the python-pyqt5 and python-qscintilla dependencies, because they are not installed with the necessary *-.egg-info directory, so the version checks fail when mu is started.

I worked around this with the following prepare function:

prepare() {
  cd "$srcdir/mu-$pkgver"
  # python-pyqt5 and python-qscintilla are not python-setuptools compatible
  # the dependencies are handled by the package
  sed -i -e "s/'pyqt5==[0-9.]*',//" -e "s/'qscintilla==[0-9.]*',//"

@seirl: 'qt5' is already an indirect dependency via 'python-pyqt5'.

@bakerman: The executable was renamed to 'mu-editor' by upstream in newer versions already.


  • Version 1.0.0 also depends on a lot more Python packages. See here I've added the missing ones to AUR. Unfortunately 'python-gpiozero' is still at version 1.4.0 but mu needs >= 1.4.1. I've flagged the 'python-gpiozero' package as out-of-date.
  • Dependeny 'python' is already covered by all the other 'python-*' dependencies.
  • Dependency 'python-pyqt5' is already covered by 'python-qscintilla-qt5'

It's missing a dependency to qt5.

This can't be installed with community/mu as /usr/bin/mu is installed by both. Can we install mu-editor here instead?

Please use
because there may be name clashes for users with SRCDEST defined.

The pkgver does not actually contain a version number. Could you add a pkgver() function to the PKGBUILD? Something like this:

pkgver() {
cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v-//;s/-/.r/;s/-/./g'
