@polyzen Dependencies updated. It was around v0.7.0 when 'python-openrazer' became optional as the project prepared to be more vendor-agnostic. Makes sense to put it back as a hard dependency until such development is done.

The software can still start without 'python-openrazer' present, although those scenarios may be less likely now that OpenRazer packages are in the official Arch repos!

Seems python-openrazer should be a hard dep and not just an optdep.

@patri9ck Python has been recently updated in the repositories (3.10 => 3.11). You must perform a clean rebuild of the package so it installs inside the correct Python modules folder.

Repeat this for any other Python-based AUR packages (like OpenRazer):

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.10

Getting this when launching polychromatic-cli or polychromatic-controller:

$ polychromatic-cli           
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/polychromatic-cli", line 30, in <module>
    import polychromatic.base as base_class
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'polychromatic'

Installed via paru, reinstalling did not help.

@Yamashiro Sorry about that, fixed. GitHub had changed the way these archives were generated, but it seems they've since reverted the change.

There is an issue with the checksum in the PKGBUILD.

@kawazoe Nope, you'll have to contact the distro you're using (or whoever runs the mirror) to fix that. Packages from the AUR are usually built locally, so in the meantime you could "Download snapshot", change the PKGBUILD's "pkgrel" to "2" and run "makepkg -s".

The mirrors have picked up a new build of this package listed as "polychromatic-0.7.3-1.1-any" with a size of 0B and it's completely breaking updates for me. Anyone else is experiencing this?

Doing a complete uninstall of this package, then doing a complete reinstall using polycrhomatic-git instead of this, has solved this problem for me on python3.9
