Upstream code supports Python3, the PKGBUILD should be updated accordingly.

Installs fine but then when trying to launch:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 578, in _build_master ws.require(requires) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 895, in require needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements)) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 781, in resolve raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers) pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'requests>=2.4.0' distribution was not found and is required by Photini

@GI_Jack: thx, but I've just added python2-sip and removed pyqt.

GI_Jack commented on 2016-07-11 04:31

bad deps:

pyqt - > python2-pyqt4

this pkgbuild doesn't work.
adding this in PKGBUILD partially fixes it:

sed '140 s/#/ /' -i
sed '142 s/^ /#/' -i

but the app is still broken it seems (also missing python2-six as a dependency)

Two problems:

1. version mismatch:

$ makepkg
==> Making package: photini-git Windows.14.09.r4.gad637d1-1

while PKGBUILD and .AURINFO announce version 14.07.0.r2.gf5f5327-1

2. (probably upstream) installing bug but potentially fixable in PKGBUILD

[DIR]/photini-git/pkg/photini-git/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/photini/photini.desktop": Failed to create file '/usr/share/applications/photini.desktop.JAPGMX': Permission denied
error: command 'desktop-file-install' failed with exit status 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Remove/comment out line 140 ("self.spawn(['desktop-file-install', '--delete-original', temp_file])" in src/Photini/ and repackage with makepkg -R.

A PKGBUILD fix could use sed or a patch on and install photini.desktop through the package() function.

Two problems:

1. packaging related:

$ makepkg -R
==> Making package: photini-git Windows.14.09.r4.gad637d1-1

whereas PKGBUILD and .AURINFO claim package version 14.07.0.r2.gf5f5327-1, pretending there is a newer version (according to cower -u).

2. upstream bug but fixable in packaging:

Error on file
"[DIR]/photini-git/pkg/photini-git/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/photini/photini.desktop": Failed to create file '/usr/share/applications/photini.desktop.JAPGMX': Permission denied
error: command 'desktop-file-install' failed with exit status 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Commenting out "self.spawn(['desktop-file-install', '--delete-original', temp_file])" (line 140) in src/Photini/ and repackaging it by
$ makepkg -R
works, but leaves the .desktop out of the package (obviously).

A fix would be to remove/comment out the line with sed or patching, and adding the .desktop file through the package() function.
