Dropped pyqt5-common. About SyntaxWarning - it was fixed in this commit:, but stable version with this fix wasn't released. Use GUI and multibootusb-pkexec instead, or install multibootusb-git to retrieve the latest available version with fix.

Bumped to 8.4.0. Added Dependency "python-zix".
Happy Holidays.

Version 8.4.0 is out. greenfuse is correct, on some distros 'python-six' is also required.

greenfuse commented on 2016-12-20 11:57

A dependency that I needed is python-six

I am considering to add gksu as a dependency. This application requires admin privileges; so -in order to grant them- pkexec is called so that the user can enter his/her password. The problem is that pkexec keeps returning the following error:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec: line 6: 3189 Aborted (core dumped) pkexec --disable-internal-agent "/usr/bin/multibootusb" "$@"

and if I run "pkexec multibootusb", then I get only:
Starting multibootusb GUI...
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
Aborted (core dumped)

A workaround would be using gksudo [which is part of gksu] instead of pkexec. I could modify the menu launcher to do so.
I'm open to suggestions.

The actual path to multibootusb executable ' /usr/sbin/multibootusb' and path specified in '/usr/sbin/multibootusb-pkexec' & '' are different.

Both the files will have path to executable as '/usr/bin/multibootusb' However, you need to correct it as '/usr/sbin/multibootusb' in both the files. This should solve the error you are getting.

If you have an error «PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/share/multibootusb/data/version.txt'» then you need execute:

sudo chmod +r /usr/share/multibootusb/data/version.txt

and then again

yaourt -S multibootusb
