@carlosal1015: Be welcome to create a python-ffc-deb if you want to track any unofficial release from Debian and stop marking this package as out of date. It will possibly soon disappear. If you see something new over here:, then you can mark it as out of date.

All Right

@carlosal1015 can you please stop flagging this package as out of date? The -post release has not been officially announced.

@cpuheater: Sorry, I didn't notice that. I updated python-ffc and reverted dolfin.

@sigvald: It seems that python-ffc itself is not loadable without python-setuptools, given that the error happens at import ffc. Therefore as far as I can tell it would be more correct to attribute the dependency to this package. In any case, thanks for handling this!

@cpuheater: Ah, I see. In that case I think the error is in the dolfin package, which also should have makedepends=('python-setuptools'). I update the dolfin package with this change.

Actually it turns out python-setuptools is needed as a run-time dependency too. Otherwise, for instance when building dolfin, the following happens:

  Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "/build/dolfin/src/dolfin-2019.1.0.post0/cmake/scripts/", line 22, in <module>
      import ffc
    File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ffc/", line 17, in <module>
      import pkg_resources

  ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

Thank you and sorry for the late response @cpuheater. python-setuptools now added to makedepends.

cpuheater commented on 2019-02-12 11:45 (UTC)

Please add makedepends=('python-setuptools') to the PKGBUILD.

Otherwise the build fails with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 7, in <module>
    from setuptools import setup
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'setuptools'
