It's been a while since there was a tagged release, and the tagged releases of this package is not compatible with the tagged release of the library package. I've created *-git versions of both packages that build against the respective develop branches of each so they work together. You install python-hamster-gtk-git as an alternative to this package.

Yes, this works now, thanks!

This seems to work for me:

# Maintainer: Jan Tojnar <>
pkgdesc="[In heavy development] A GTK interface to the hamster time tracker."
depends=('gtk3' 'python' 'python-gobject' 'python-orderedset' 'python-hamster-lib>=0.13')

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"
find hamster_gtk -type f -exec sed -i 's/backports\.//g' {} +
sed "s/find_packages()/find_packages(exclude=['tests'])/" -i
make resources
python install --root="${pkgdir}" --optimize=1

Nope. First, the package "python-orderedset" is missing as a dependency. Then, after installing that, I get the following new error:

Sorry, hamster-gtk is not yet compatible with python-hamster-lib 0.13. You can try setting aa55a047a244e6a3d9c656bc5e03ede8ba1b3115 as a pkgver if you want to use fixed version.

Currently fails to start with the following error message:
