Please make following changes:

  • Remove .git from end of url.
  • Update pkgver() to use format #.r#.g#.
git describe --long --tags | sed -E 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

I am not aware that this package is doing anything related to pyenv. I've also never used pyenv.

Your package manager should install this in a system location so, if your pyenv setup can't find it, that's an issue with pyenv and not this package.

If you want this in a virtual environment then I wouldn't install it with paru as opening the environment to global packages would seem to defeat the point of virtual environments (unless you can allow it on a per-package basis). qtile-extras isn't on pypi yet so you'd need to clone the repo and then do pip install . which should install it in your virtual environment (assuming it's been activated).

I am not sure if it's a bug or not as I am new to pyenv, but I got a weird surprise rebooting my arch :

  • default Qtile config
  • logs saying ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'qtile_extras'
  • I reinstalled with paru -S qtile-extras-git, and realized it was using the pyenv version

I set pyenv global system as the default environment and it fixed the problem.

My question : is it deliberate that this package using the "active" python env as opposed to the system env ?

I was thinking of "python2-setuptools" as the latest :) with "python-setuptools" works fine ! thanks

Why python2?

You probably need 'python-setuptools' and 'python-setuptools-scm'.

pikaur -S qtile-extras-git :

==> Entering fakeroot environment...

Traceback (most recent call last):

I tried to install "python2-setuptools", same result. I tried build from github repos same. any ideas ?
