Missing dependency: python-yaml

I did and get the same error when i try to install open-fprintd but i can install fprintd-clients

@RainbowNia: I used yay -S python-validity. Try installing the dependencies fprintd-clients and open-fprintd first.

Can you tell me what command you ran? I am running yay -S python-validity or git clone and then the url and it seems to be failing at the build at the end with the error I stated before.

@RainbowNia: Can you tell which package It's failing on? I just tried installing with yay on a fresh container and it worked fine.

RainbowNia commented on 2020-07-17 20:10

When I try to install both using yay and making the package on arch linux running gnome I get a : ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().Aborting...error making: %!s(func() string=0x557e9bbf9770)

Can I have a hand fixing it?

mattmurr commented on 2020-07-15 20:49

@fosskers: I've created fprintd-clients package instead which builds the latest working commit.

fosskers commented on 2020-07-15 17:09

Hi there, would you consider updating the fprintd-clients dependency to specifically target fprintd-clients-git?

@aurelieng: Ah yes, you're right, the service isn't working after suspend. Running sudo udevadm trigger brings it back.

Thanks a lot @niklaszantner, after resetting the fingerprint reader, the service starts and everything works... until I resume from suspend!
