@yebenny
Powerpill depends on python3-xcpf, which in turn depends on python-xdg. If you have installed the package correctly then the dependencies should be satisfied.

You should never use pip to satisfy dependencies of pacman packages.

This package depends on pyXDG, but it was not listed in the dependencies.
workaround:
sudo pip install pyXDG

adding xyne's repos fixed everything after a `pacman -Syu`, powerpill is truly astounding on gigabit fiber

@thoth
Python was upgraded from version 3.5 to 3.6. You have to rebuild all of your Python AUR packages to work with the new version. If you don't want to rebuild powerpill and its dependencies, you can use the repo on my site:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pm2ml'


recently I've been getting the above when attempting to use powerpill (I think first occurrence was maybe Monday that I noticed)

It doesn't directly depend on python3-memoizedb. Some of its dependencies do, but those already specify python3-memoizedb in their respective dependencies arrays.

please add dependency python3-memoizedb

Powerpill strictly interprets the SigLevel directives in pacman.conf. Adjust them accordingly. The official repos do not provide database signatures so they should be set to "PackageRequired".

powerpill fails to sync package databases
I am using worldwide repos from the very latest pacman mirrorlist,
but it was the same with my years old repos too.
pacman and yaourt have no issues like this.


$ sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
$ sudo rm -R /var/lib/pacman/sync/
$ sudo powerpill -Sy

@alive4ever
You're right. I've made a note of it and will move the pages when I finally have time to release the refactored backend. I doubt that I will include a section 8 man page through because the argparse library does a good enough job documenting the extra options (without needing to keep two documents in sync) and the rest emulate pacman.

Thanks for pointing out the error.
