The wayland dependencies are removed from this completely now. If you want a package that pulls in wayland dependencies (and not x11 ones), there is the qtile-wayland-git AUR package.

Thanks guys. An issue for this has been posted on the pywlroots issue tracker ( and will be resolved soon.

Building this package currently doesn't work. I get the following traceback:

@mcol: Please make sure to remove the leading v from the version string (see

python-pip is required as a make dependency

@RogerDuran/@dequis: While at it, please also review the Python package guidelines and the VCS guidelines:

@RogerDuran/@dequis: Please have a look at the Arch package guidelines (specifically the package etiquette):

  • All occurences of $srcdir and $pkgdir have to be quoted
  • Avoid using makepkg subroutines (e.g. msg): use printf or echo instead (or remove altogether, as install -v is sufficiently verbose)

Please also update the relevant depends, makedepends, checkdepends and optdepends (see community/qtile for further info).

In addition to python-dbus-next, python-xcffib is now an optional dependency (for X11 backend), as are python-xkbcommon, pywayland and pywroots (for Wayland backend).

Qtile now has python-dbus-next as an optional dependency for interaction with dbus (replacing python-dbus).
