Last update (pkgrel 2) should fix the problem with mycroft trying to change permissions.

Here are some patches to bring this up to date. Two key changes:

1) Instead of trying to patch out the check_dependencies function, I just avoid calling it in the start script.

2) I specify /usr/bin/python when init-ing the venv, because if you have conda activated, it leads to a permission error (might be an error in my setup).

This seems to be working so far, but I'll comment here if something went wrong.

@xenrox, sorry for slow reply forgot to enable notifications. The problem was that I only tried to run it through systemctl --user start starting it directly from cli Shows that it trying to create (requires sudo) /opt/mycroft{,/skills}. Then changes the ownership(also needs sudo) and group to my user, shouldn't this be the user and group mycroft-core - it tries to change the owner/group every startup.

Now I have connection problems, the websocket library throws an uncaught exception which doesn't seem to appear in the logs (I assume in /var/log/mycroft/*)

@ixil That sounds more like an issue with your sudo setup/pam module than with this package. Can you tell me which command you used which caused this problem? Normally you would do: systemctl --user enable mycroft.service Sudo is not even required. /opt/mycroft/skills/ is created by mycroft when it is started for the first time and downloads the default skills. Edit: If you want a faster reply, write me an email (address is encoded in the PKGBUILD).

Using the systemd user file I'm getting an error:

hostname sudo[14288]: pam_unix(sudo:auth): conversation failed
hostname sudo[14288]: pam_unix(sudo:auth): auth could not identify password for myuser

Any hints?

Also previously it was trying to create /opt/mycroft/skills/ which I manually did and changed the group to mycroft-core - should this be in the post-install instructions? or changed in the settings - in which case that should probably follow the default arch directories

Thanks for maintaining this package. :)

@idleshand Thanks for notifying me. I updated the package.

Looks to me like it is worth updating the pkgbuild to reflect the changes that have been made to the original "".

The only changes I can actually see are related to pip. Specifically upgrading to using pip v18 as in this commit:

And then using curl to get pip directly and installing to the virtual_env instead of using easy_install, in this commit

The postinstall script fails to build pyyaml for some reason. edit: Patching /usr/share/mycroft-core/requirements.txt to use pyyyaml 3.13 instead of 3.11 works (see edit2: still can't properly start the mycroft service due to some permission problems even though I'm in the mycroft-core group
