The package is just installing the pyspread.desktop from the repo, then the mime cache gets automatically updated by the pacman hook /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/update-desktop-database.hook.

I experimented with spaces in the filename and directory/path, it all worked from dolphin, can't really reproduce the error. Let me know if you have an idea what we should change.

I am getting an error when I am launching pyspread from a pys within the Dolphin file manager if the filename comprises spaces. Apparently, the filename is cut off after the first space. Therefore, file loading fails.

This does not happen when I am re-associating the file type with /usr/bin/pyspread

Is the AUR assigning the mime type correctly?

@sirocco: From the changelog: 2.0.2 is a bugfix release for pyspread 2.0 for Python 3.10 compatibility. So the TypeErrors should be gone now.

With Python 3.10

@Jake Thank you for the downgrading tip. It seems that nothing is wrong with the package's menu entry. Apparently, the KDE menu has to be rebuilt manually once you have changed menu entries. Aftwards, everything works well.

@manns downgrade does not work with AUR packages. You can build+install without helpers:

git clone; cd pyspread
git checkout a0dcc03f37630b1dc350c81212ff12c40d2aad9d
makepkg -si

I am running KDE. I tried installing the previous release. However, downgrade is failing:

# export DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=1 && downgrade pyspread

Downgrading from A.L.A. is disabled on the stable branch. To override this behavior, set DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA to 1 .
See  for more details.

Unable to downgrade pyspread

@manns: I can't confirm, the menu entry works on my system (desktop environment: KDE + Rofi). Does it show up if you install the previous release again? Any other changes on your setup?

manns commented on 2021-06-13 18:48 (UTC)

@Jake The latest release works well when started form the command line. However, the pyspread menu entry in the Office section seems to be missing.
