Please rename source line to rename downloaded source file to include pkgname and pkgver in its name:

The package required me to manually install pycairo and dbus-python packages via conda in order to work. Not sure about dbus, but since cairo is already a dependency, why didn't it install it automatically?

@calexandru2018, I tried all that, but as I expected, I didn't change a thing. However, I found the python-proton-client package I had was compiled long time ago, and I noticed it was built using python 3.9, so all resources where installed under the /usr/lib/python3.9/ directory. I rebuilt the package again, installed it and saw resources were now placed under /usr/lib/python3.10/. From there, everything started working as expected.

Thanks for your help! ;-)

@Musikolo try installing one package at the time from the lowest dependency:

1. python-proton-client
2. python-protonvpn-nm-lib
3. protonvpn-cli
4. protonvpn-gui
5. protonvpn

Make sure that after installing 1. you check if the file/folder is there with pip show proton_client. To ensure, cd into it to ensure you can see the module file constants. From there install one package at the time and ensure that there are no issues.

@calexandru2018, I uninstalled it completely, deleted the cache, and installed it from scratch. Same issue. Then I tried in another laptop running on Arch Linux where I never installed it, and I got the same issue too. All packages are uptodate in both laptops. Any further suggestions?

@Musikolo make sure that the packages are properly installed

I'm getting the following error, should I report it upstream?

How about changing the upstream URL to

I also had to use the hack from @grm21. I've submitted the issue directly to proton, hopefully they take a look at it.
