That's a tough one. I don't see how it can be due to packaging. I'm looking into it :)

When I open nrngui and click Tools -> Model View, the program crashes. The problem is: the file /usr/lib/python/neuron/ should be called simply

Is this an upstream bug?

I am going to push an upadte for neuron 7.4 shortly.

Try commenting out the line

patch -p1 < $srcdir/patch.diff

in the PKGBUILD file.

I'm having troubles installing the package with python2 (python3 works just fine). I've replaced "python" with "python2". The error I'm getting is

nrnpython.cpp:169:32: error: invalid conversion from 'char* (*)(FILE*, FILE*, const char*) {aka char* (*)(_IO_FILE*, _IO_FILE*, const char*)}' to 'char* (*)(FILE*, FILE*, char*) {aka char* (*)(_IO_FILE*, _IO_FILE*, char*)}' [-fpermissive]
PyOS_ReadlineFunctionPointer = nrnpython_getline;
Makefile:562: recipe for target 'nrnpython.lo' failed

I have no idea what I am doing really and I'm quite clueless where to start looking for the problem. I have numpy, scipy (for python2) and mpich2. Any hints much appreciated.

Great. Thanks again rouzbeh.

Most excellent. Thanks again rouzbeth.

Alright folks, some changes:

1. Turns out removing .la files results in nrnivmodl not working anymore. For now we have to keep them.
2. There is now a patch to make neuron compile with Python 3. The new version of the PKGBUILD applies the patch and compiles neuron for the latest version of Python. If you want to have it work with Python 2.x simply replace all instance of "python" with "python2" in the PKGBUILD.

Great! Thanks for getting it to install with python.

New version to correct the md5. While at it, I also had another attempt at getting the python library to install. There is an error compiling for python 3, so for now we have to use python 2. But at least it works.
