@morn it works now! thanks so much

@cloutiy: Should be fixed now too. Apparently now only works with HTTPS.

thanks, that was fast!

I have tried again but seems to be a problem getting pyswisseph (I tried both yaourt and pacman). Although not sure this is anything related to your package:

Thanks for reporting! Openastro needs Python 3 now, and I simply forgot to update that dependency (pyswisseph3). Should be fixed now.

No module named 'swisseph'

I had installed openastro under Antergos + Gnome desktop and openastro worked fine.

I recently reinstalled Antergos bu with KDE desktop. openastro installed, but I get the following when running:

openastro Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 46, in <module> from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, dignities, swiss as ephemeris File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/openastromod/", line 30, in <module> import swisseph as swe ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'swisseph'</module></module>

@iCirav python2-rsvg has been fixed in the meantime, so I've adopted openastro again. I have made you a co-maintainer.

@Morn If you are still disowning openastro I would like to maintain it.

Morn commented on 2017-01-28 12:52

python2-rsvg (part of gnome-python-desktop) is no longer in Extra and also does not compile anymore (I've tried to create an AUR package).

I'm disowning openastro now; maybe someone else knows how to fix this.

OK, fixed. Maybe the python2-setuptools PKGBUILD used "provides=(setuptools)" at some point, because this used to work before. Very strange.
