As we found out in the latest qtile in git requires "python-dbus" and "python-gobject" as dependencies.
I haven't tested it with Python2, but I guess qtile-git requires "python2-dbus" and "python2-gobject" instead.

It would be helpful to add git as a makedep.

updated python2-xcffib to 0.1.8 and qtile to depend on it

IzidorM commented on 2014-10-30 21:52

python2-xcffib>=0.1.6 should be changed to 0.1.8, because latest git commit wont work with 0.1.6 version anymore.

Until this is fixed, building qtile is possible by changing the source line in PKGBUILD so it will use an old commit:

python2-xcffib>=0.1.6 should be changed to 0.1.8, because latest git commit wont work with 0.1.6 anymore :)
