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: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/plover_plugins_manager/.

@tvr: the dependency on certifi has been removed.

python-certifi should be added as dependency. Without I get the following error

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...
4.0.0.dev0.91.gd6f8be5

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

4.0.0.dev0.r91.gd6f8be5


The license should be provided like this

license=('GPL2')



When I tried to launch it, I got this

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

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?
