Please remember, that this package uses DKMS for building the kernel module and as such requires the kernel headers for your kernel installed. See also

Another manual step that needs to be taken is adding your user to the plugdev group, e.g. using the command sudo gpasswd -a $USER plugdev.

To me this boils down to: 1) Either assume /usr/bin/python3 is the one and only python you like, and just explicitly use that. You have a transitive dependency on the python, so you know what's there, that's fine 2) Or print a warning/ask for a variable (that is not PATH :) to be set when python3 is not /usr/bin/python3, to communicate your concern to the user and ask for their confirmation.

This middle ground of both assuming something which is definitely there is good, but refusing to use it, is unconvincing to me. Having said this, at the end of the day it's pretty easy to work around this, so if that's the way you thing it shall be done, then it's all good. Just my two cents. Thanks for the package!

Do you think it would be possible to provide a way to bypass the python path check that doesn't involve manual operations (like editing the PKGBUILD or changing the PATH)? One idea could be to check against some environment variable (e.g. ["${AUR_OPENRAZER_SKIP_PYTHON_PATH_CHECK}" = "true"]?).

I use asdf-vm which shims system python by default, so it should play nicely with this install script.

Thanks for maintaining this package.

the package wont install, no matter what i try. numpy dependency seems broken or outdated

EDIT: my mistake, i didnt do pacman -Syu X)

@jahway603 I've only added the sanity check to the PKGBUILD so people stop building this package with a "broken" Python setup. The message already mentions "[..] or point your PATH variable to prefer /usr/bin/ temporarily." Would you be happy with explicitly adding the command "export PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH" to the message? And no I won't add workarounds to fix broken build environments.

Currently on 3.0.1-1 and unable to upgrade to the updated 3.1.0-1 version with the same "python path error". It was successful when I tried what @testbird71 suggested. @z3ntu, can you please add the fix into the PKGBUILD so that it will work for everyone? Thanks.

type in your terminal 1. export PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH 2. yay -Syu

ERROR: Your 'python3' does not point to /usr/bin/python3 but to /bin/python3, likely a custom environment like anaconda. Please build this package in a clean chroot (e.g. with or point your PATH variable to prefer /usr/bin/ temporarily. ==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in prepare().

How can i build it temporarily? I will not chroot

@whynothugo thank you :)

@YoFreakinLo Yes, that's completely unrelated here. This is discussion for the openrazer package.

You're getting error download other packages from the Manjaro repositories. Apparently either mirrors or your local package db is out of date. Best to ask on Manjaro's forums or IRC.
