I changed the dependency. But I don't have time to maintain this package anymore, so I'll disown. Feel free to adopt.

rnestler commented on 2012-07-04 17:58

Please change the dependency 'python-nautilus' to 'python2-nautilus' since the package got renamed and moved to community

Anonymous comment on 2012-06-30 12:51

I also received the pacman question if I wanted to update to python2-nautilus from "community", this leading me to uninstall this AUR package to be able to properly updgrade Arch...

Update it to v0.15.0.5, fix a seg fault in nautilus 3

thomas.oster commented on 2011-11-08 09:15

Are you running python2.7 on purpose?

thomas.oster commented on 2011-11-08 09:14

I run it currently without any problems

thomas.oster commented on 2011-11-08 09:13

did you restart you whole session? Nautilus is also used as desktop-file manager, so you have to log out and relogin first

sigo commented on 2011-11-08 09:06

when I launch nautilus, this error occur :

New release
These make the trick in the PKGBUILD:
depends=('nautilus>=2.22.0' 'python-nautilus>=0.7.0-2' 'dbus-python>=0.80' 'rabbitvcs>=')

th0th commented on 2011-02-16 10:01

python2-gnomevfs is a dependency, if not installed menu items won't appear in nautilus.

alphazo commented on 2011-01-07 09:48

When I try to see the journal I get: time data 'Mon Jan 3 23:13:36 2011' does not match format '%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y'

BTW, config window opens fine in my case.

Anonymous comment on 2011-01-06 18:10

Update the package, but a advice: I detect two errors on this version:
1.Deleting is not working after install this package. Bug tracker thread:
2. The config window doesn't open:

alphazo commented on 2011-01-06 14:29

By curiosity I replaced the link to the source to the 0.14 in both rabbitvcs and rabbitvcs-nautilus PKGBUILD but it didn't work (no icon). I guess I will have to wait for AUR updates.

alphazo commented on 2011-01-06 14:25

On recent versions of Gnome don't forget to enable icons on menus. See

If you notice that the RabbitVCS menu icons are not showing up, this is actually the result of a decision by GNOME upstream to cease displaying icons in menus by default.

You can change this behaviour by right clicking on the desktop, then select “Change Desktop Background” » Interface » Show Icons in Menus

…or try running:

gconftool-2 –type bool –set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true

(You can also use Applications > System Tools > Configuration editor, browse to that key and check the box.)

Problem solved. Thank you leniviy for the research. We back now.

niqingliang2003 commented on 2011-01-05 10:12

anyhow, leniviy's method work. It changed 4 files:



niqingliang2003 commented on 2011-01-05 10:10

in other words, the python extension of nautilus is always using /usr/bin/python, but tortoisehg need python2.7, the python-nautilus has not provided the version-selection option, is that right?

indeed, I think if we need the specific version python, we should write it in our code, but not depend the system's default value.

maybe the python-nautilus providing the version-selection version is the best way. (of course, it can have a default version, but it should provide a way to select the version by user self.)

basinilya commented on 2011-01-04 16:53

P.S. do this in rabbitvcs, not rabbitvcs-nautilus

basinilya commented on 2011-01-04 16:51

Why not replace all sys.executable to /usr/bin/python2 ? Seems to work.
find . -name "*.py" | xargs grep -l sys.executable | xargs sed -i 's|sys\.executable|"/usr/bin/python2"|g'

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-28 16:07

ok, thank you alessandro for your affords! I will wait for their answer. There are some other packages use python3, I am afraid to break the system.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-27 17:45

@ngsupb: Unfortunately, I make this package conflicts with python because we need symlink python to python 2, otherwise rabbitvcs-nautilus won't work. I don't find were we configure this program to use python2 instead python default. I asked to devels on their bugtracker, and waiting the answer.

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-27 16:02

weired message.
:: rabbitvcs-nautilus and python are in conflict. Remove python? [y/N]

is it ok?

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-27 15:34

Hi Alessandro,

Won't it affect other packages that use python3 in case I change the symlink. Currently it is linked to python3

ls -l /usr/bin/python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Dec 1 14:45 /usr/bin/python -> python3

Anonymous comment on 2010-12-23 14:24

This package is back working with new python-nautilus patch (applied on 0.7.0-2 version). But, we need to do a workaround: make a symlink from /usr/bin/python to /usr/bin/python2.7 (#ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python). Because this, I make the package conflicts with python default (version 3) temporally, until we found out how to change rabbitvcs to use python2.7 instead python default. Thread on rabbitvcs developers bugtracker:

firefoxmmx commented on 2010-12-22 06:39

it doesnt work.. maybe,it is question of python or python-nautilus

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-07 14:55

ngsupb, I've done the /usr/bin/rabbitvcs env change. The rabbitvcs-cli frontend is working since 21 Oct, but the gedit and nautilus don't work. Whether I create a symlink /usr/bin/python nautilus to python2 (for test porpose only), Gedit frontend pass to work. So gedit is using python3 to your plugins, and I don't find out where we change this. Nautilus frontend don't work here even with a python synlink created. I think that is because python-nautilus bug, and not rabbitvcs fault.

Nicklas, there is an aswer at
Anything that we can do to fix it ?

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-02 10:19


I have filed a bug report over at rabbitvcs, hoping that the developers of the plugin have some insights to this matter.

Follow it at:

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-01 14:15

ngsupb: Yes. I've tried replacing /usr/bin/python to symlink to python2 and it's still doesn't work. Any suggestion?

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-01 05:34

so we need to fix python-nautilus first?

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-01 01:25

I'm on 64 bits and python-nautilus doesn't work. This package depends on python-nautilus working.

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-31 22:17

alessandro_ufms, this package needs some love plzzz :S

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-31 19:52

had to delete it, nautilus just hangs after reinstalling rabbitvcs-nautilus

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-20 13:22

It is no more working since the python 3.0 update tow days ago.

any ideas how to get it working again? :-)

alphazo commented on 2010-04-15 14:23

Cool. Rebuilding pysvn did the trick. Thanks a lot!

Anonymous comment on 2010-04-15 14:02

alphazo: I think, it's because of openssl update from 0.98 to 1.00.
Try rebuild and install pysvn package.

alphazo commented on 2010-04-15 13:59

It worked when I first installed it. Now I can no longer see the icons on SVN content and lost contextual menu as well. How can I debug this?
