According to the OpenLP devs, python-pillow has been removed from the code and will not be a dependency for the next release.

Python Pillow (python-pillow) 10.0 breaks OpenLP, so the version of python-pillow is set to <10.0. You can use 'downgrade' to install a pre 10.0 version and optionally mark it as ignored in your pacman.conf file.

If you don't want to mark it as ignored in pacman.conf, just add --ignore python-pillow to your command line. Most (all?) AUR helpers will just pass this on to pacman.

@maxcool - did you try downgrade python-pillow? My install ran fine after that

molasses2 commented on 2023-07-12 14:38 (UTC)

@macxcool Roger that. I appreciate your efforts. I haven't programmed in eons, and never touched Python, but I can provide build logs if that's of any help.

@molasses2 I may need some help getting this all fixed up. I'm not any kind of expert on this sort of thing, I just wanted OpenLP to be in the AUR since it was abandoned.

I just learned of this package today, and have run into several build problems. First, I think python-pip needs to be added as a dependency too. This message jumped out on my first attempt:

==> Starting package()... /usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/setuptools/ _DeprecatedInstaller: setuptools.installer and fetch_build_eggs are deprecated. !!

    Requirements should be satisfied by a PEP 517 installer.
    If you are using pip, you can try `pip install --use-pep517`.

!! dist.fetch_build_eggs(dist.setup_requires) WARNING: The wheel package is not available. /usr/bin/python: No module named pip

After installing python-pip, I tried to build again, but got several "Package would be ignored" error messages, similar to this one...

    # Package would be ignored #
    Python recognizes 'openlp.core.display.html' as an importable package[^1],
    but it is absent from setuptools' `packages` configuration.

...for each of these packages: openlp.core.display.html, openlp.core.ui.fonts, openlp.plugins.bibles.resources, openlp.plugins.planningcenter.forms, and openlp.plugins.planningcenter.lib.

@Spinnekop I'll look into the problem. Please don't mark as 'out of date' unless there's a new release.

openlp breaks after update of python-pillow to 10.0. It is not listed as a dependency but will not run without it if removed. downgrade to v 9.5 works fine.... (Sorry for flagging!)

I have tried openlp-git with Python 3.11. I uninstalled openlp 3.0.2, updated Arch with Python 3.11 and did a local install of openlp-git where I changed dependency to allow for Python 3.11. It installed and run fine, but I have not tested it fully yet. In my installation it could not find VLC, solved by doing a "pip install python-vlc". I will update openlp-git after some more testing.

Python 3.11 is in the repos now. This package explicitly requests 3.10 - did anyone test if it's compatible with 3.11?

macxcool commented on 2023-03-04 12:58 (UTC)

@Spinnekop Please mark the package out of date when there's a release update. Messaging me doesn't have quite the same effect.

@bage I've added python-pyicu in for 3.0.2

Spinnekop commented on 2023-02-25 11:11 (UTC)

Hi @macxcool - openlp has been prompting me to upgrade to 3.0.2 for a while but not yet in AUR?
