I don't understand the problem with pkgver, I can't reproduce it. The issue with UI files not being generated should be fixed.

Note: I assume you edited you're original comment? There's no email notification when an existing comment is edited, so I would have missed your issues if not for visiting the AUR page.

Thanks for this package! Please add git to the makedepends, otherwise it can't be built ;-)

After adding git I get this output

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: zip_safe flag not set; analyzing archive contents...
zip_safe flag not set; analyzing archive contents...

I want to suggest to use

git describe --tags | sed -r 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

in pkgver(), it produces this output


The license should be provided like this


When I tried to launch it, I got this

$ plover
Unexpected error: Traceback (most recent call last):

from plover.gui_qt.main_window_ui import Ui_MainWindow
ImportError: No module named main_window_ui

QApplication: invalid style override passed, ignoring it.

Looks like missing dependencies? I'm not really a python guy ... What package provides this module named main_window_ui?
