Thanks again for the very quick fix!

rare still crashes due to the missing icon mdi.view-grid-outline.

I looked a bit into that and noticed that the python-qtawesome package in arch's community repo is version 0.6.0 (while the latest upstream version is 1.0.2; the package has been flagged out of date for months, apparently).

python-qtawesome 0.6.0 was using mdi 3.8.95 which didn't include a view-grid-outline icon.

Replacing "mdi.view-grid-outline" with "mdi.view-grid" in Rare/utils/ (lines 228 and 234) fixed the issue.

I'm not sure what the best solution could be. But the quickest one is to run a sed -i 's/mdi.view-grid-outline/mdi.view-grid/' $srcdir/Rare-$pkgver/Rare/utils/ in the pkgbuild's prepare function.

Thanks for fixing the missing dependency. A couple more things:

  • rare still crashes on my system: Exception: Invalid icon name "view-grid-outline" in font "mdi" (raised by qtawesome, called at /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/Rare/utils/

  • gendesk should be listed as a dev dependency, since it's used to build the package.

  • legendary should be listed in the conflicts and provides arrays, since this package embeds a fork of legendary.
