I wonder if anyone can help me troubleshoot what might be wrong in my Arch system.

Tried again to install this tool but still failing. See my previous comment.

I then decided to test building it a python virtual environment,

python -m test_env_for_xlsx2csv

cd test_env_for_xlsx2csv

source bin/activate

pip install xlsx2cs

Worked. It built ok without any errors whatsover, and the tool works.

I just cant figure out why I cant build it with this PKGBUILD.

The only thing I see in that 55 line is , nvim python-xlsx2csv/src/xlsx2csv-0.8.1/man/,

 55 makeman: $(MANPAGE)

Hhhhmmm ... No idea.

Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.

I created a systemd-nspawn container and tried to build python-xlsx2csv with ''makepkg -s'' with no problems.

This PKGBUILD is currently, v0.8.1-1 failing to build with,

Well I tried a couple of times to paste the PKGBUILD I got working for version 0.8.1 including the necessary changes PLUS the included man page is now extent.

ALAS...that turned out to be a "bust"...

SO... I sent it to your email !!

I downloaded the Latest release and tried to build it with PEP 517, but it gave me an error and I could not update it. The seems to be slightly different, but I'm not sure.

python -m build --wheel --no-isolation

Make sure you're either building from a fully intact git repository or PyPI tarballs. Most other sources (such as GitHub's tarballs, a git checkout without the .git folder) don't contain the necessary metadata and will not work.

For example, if you're using pip, instead of use git+

New Release PLUS now using MIT apparently !
