Starting with 4.0.0.dev8+434.g60779ea-1, the main entry point has been changed to isolate plugins install, similarly to how they are handled when using the official AppImage.

The plugins manager is available as a separate package:

I'm running into an issue installing this package during check():

This resolved itself after I removed cached build files (yay -Sc) and reinstalled

I'm running into an issue installing this package during check():

Successfully built plover-4.0.0.dev12+18.ge6516275-py3-none-any.whl
==> Starting check()...
ImportError while loading conftest '/home/austin/.cache/yay/plover-git/src/plover-git/test/'.

 -> Failed to install the following packages. Manual intervention is required:
plover-git - exit status 4

python-plover_stroke does seem to be getting installed; however, I can reproduce the failure in a python repl:

Python 3.11.5 (main, Sep  2 2023, 14:16:33) [GCC 13.2.1 20230801] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import plover_stroke
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'plover_stroke'

Has anyone else encountered this error?

This is not how you write a pkgver() function for a VCS package, it needs to uniquely refer to the latest commit on the main branch (not just a general version). I suggest checking the wiki page on this topic.

Also renaming the source from plover to plover-git seems unnecessary here.

Trying to upgrade fromplover-4.0.0.dev11+21.g486a032f-1 to *.g486a032-1, it errors during the check() phase,

(I just copied the part that was highlighted red +1 line before, there seems to be a bunch of things which work normally before this)

Edit: I changed from a softlink to naming the full path of my user dictionary in the config file, and the error disappeared. My bad.

@bpierre I think this now depends on python-mock

bpierre commented on 2021-10-29 13:15 (UTC)

@liljaylj: thanks, done.

liljaylj commented on 2021-10-29 13:10 (UTC)

@bpierre please add python-wheel to make dependencies

bpierre commented on 2021-10-27 10:13 (UTC)

@biscuits: yep, I know, will make an update right away.

during check: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'rtf_tokenize'

Fixed with pip install rtf-tokenize (it's not on the AUR currently)

It required installing python-plover_stroke from AUR, but other than that it worked, thanks!
