Still failing- error: target not found: python2-click-5.1

ginkel commented on 2017-11-17 22:15

Unfortunately, the installation currently fails due to a broken python-click-5.1 dependency. Any ideas?

zer0chain commented on 2017-08-04 07:19

Thanks @MrHaroldA

I can't (or I don't know how) set several rules for the deps version so I put a >=3.4 to be sure it's not using 3.3.

MrHaroldA commented on 2017-08-04 06:56

The latest version does not work with community/python2-pyserial 3.4-1 installed as the build specifically asks for < 3.3, while 3.4 should be ok.

Please remove the < 3.3 restriction, or make it a specific one like upstream does: "pyserial>=3,<4,!=3.3".

Doesn't work with python2-pyserial 3.3. See . Downgrading python2-pyserial worked.

Done guys ;)

Yes, i can also confirm that arrow is required.

Could you add 'python2-arrow' to the dependencies?
Or add me as co-maintainer and i can push the changes.

frazar0 commented on 2017-03-28 07:27

Is it possible that "python-arrow" is a required dependency?
After updating, I get

$ platformio update

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/platformio", line 6, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 854, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'arrow<1' distribution was not found and is required by platformio

Installing "python-arrow" fixed this.

Can be confirmed by looking at

install_requires = [

Thanks for maintaining this package.
These changes work:
- cd "$srcdir/platformio-$pkgver"
+ cd "$srcdir/platformio-core-$pkgver"

Yes, it's failing, I tried to change to this to get the latest version 3.2.1

package() {

python2 install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1

But I got some PKGBUILD error that it could not find some file. Not to good at this. Could @zer0chain give us a hand maybe? :)

Thanks @bricewge. Sorry for the late update.

bricewge commented on 2016-10-24 16:35

I made a pull request [1] to the github repository indicated in the PKGBUILD. There you can find a working recipe for platformio 3.1.0


patrickelectric commented on 2016-10-11 11:23

Please, update the package.

PKGBUILD for 3.0.1 with python-click-5.1:

zer0chain commented on 2016-06-20 09:21

@buckket I agree it is a bad idea. I thought platformio will moved to the next version of click and so it shoud be temporary to use this patch on However, I think it is also a bad idea to use an out-of-date package in AUR when the last version if available in the official repository.

buckket commented on 2016-06-17 23:36

Dear maintainer,

patching to allow the usage of click v6 is a bad idea, there is a reason this restriction is in place: click v6 introduces a bug to platformio. [0]

Instead I suggest adjusting the PKGBUILD dependency to explicitly list an older, but compatible, version of click.
Someone already has created a python-click-5.1 package [1], which would be a perfect fit.

avrdude is a known issue for platformio on Arch, but I do not think that adding these deps is the proper way of solving it.
Best is to use the avrdude provided by Arch rather than the one of platformio. A symbolic link (~/.platformio/packages/tool-avrdude -> /usr/bin/avrdude) do the job for now.

Xeranor commented on 2016-04-13 09:56

Please add
to the dependencies since they are needed to run the version of avrdude.
