This Python 2 based version is pretty much dead.

But there is an ongoing development for Python 3 by this fork:

I suggest you give it a try, maybe this could be revived!

juantascon commented on 2013-11-11 20:50 (UTC)

updated, please validate

javitonino commented on 2013-11-11 20:27 (UTC)

Due to recent changes, python2-distribute should be changed to python2-setuptools in makedepends. python2-setuptools does not exists any more. Thanks.

I'm having a lot of broken plugins recently (, any idea how to fix that ?

juantascon commented on 2013-05-12 16:57 (UTC)

not really sure but it makes sense I'll leave it without python-notify if anybody has trouble please report it, cheers

unhammer commented on 2013-05-12 16:38 (UTC)

python2-notify seems to only be used in the nautilus-related code – isn't it enough that python2-notify is dependent from nautilus-periscope(-svn)? python2-notify brings in ~200MB of dependencies (cairo, wayland etc. etc.) I managed to build, install and use periscope-git fine on my raspberrypi without it at least.

Fixed upstream! Works OK now!

juantascon commented on 2012-11-23 13:26 (UTC)

this is a git version, that is a programming error, I recommend you to pass this report upstream

katta commented on 2012-11-23 10:29 (UTC)

don't work, i have this error: % periscope Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/periscope", line 25, in <module> import periscope File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/periscope/", line 20, in <module> from periscope import * File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/periscope/", line 36, in <module> import plugins File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/periscope/plugins/", line 24, in <module> from BierDopje import BierDopje File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/periscope/plugins/", line 29, in <module> import version ImportError: No module named version

this package has been outdated, please use periscope-git instead

swanson commented on 2012-11-19 20:39 (UTC)

The code has been moved to github

This does not build any more, you must change the python-beautifulsoup dependency to python2-beautifulsoup3.

juantascon commented on 2011-07-06 13:06 (UTC)

thank you for your contribution

HI, I've adjusted the PKGBUILD to reflect some package renaming changes. I also removed python2 from depends since it's already required by the other dependencies. Most importantly, you should always wrap $pkgdir and $srcdir in double quotes. Here's the PKGBUILD:

Pank commented on 2010-10-24 17:23 (UTC)

Please update to reflect to change to python2.

commented on 2010-10-20 14:37 (UTC)

Yes. I cannot figure how to use it

juantascon commented on 2010-10-08 05:36 (UTC)

are you talking about the nautilus plugin? if it is, then you should take a look at this:

commented on 2010-10-07 19:43 (UTC)

Could you package please the periscope-gnome too? That would be relly useful. Thanks
