@ritze that issue has already been reported upstream by the developer - no fix has been announced yet.

UPDATE - another upstream report referencing this issue, being actively investigated.

Seems that something went wrong : Got this when starting puddletag File "/usr/bin/puddletag", line 319, in <module> import puddlestuff.resource # Needs to be first as other modules use it. ImportError: No module named puddlestuff.resource

Thanks for your help.

@chapa do you have python2-pillow6 installed? This package replaces python2-pillow as a dependency.

Echoing @kescherAUR, though, you should probably just go install puddletag-qt5-git instead, unless you enjoy watching qt4 manually compile. :)

@chapa Install puddletag-qt5-git instead.

I have packaged python2-configobj for the AUR now.

morgenstern commented on 2020-02-25 23:05

Looks like the dependency python2-configobj has been dropped from the [community] repository. I will try and package it for the AUR as soon as I can.

@prometheus this is a build error with a dependency, not an install error. See @esdrasedu's comment here. Work-around would be to downgrade to sip 4.19.16-2 - you'll need to ask the maintainer of python2-pyqt4 about how they plan to handle this.
