You're right, thanks.

Python has just been updated to 3.7 in the main repositories. Since this package installs its files in /usr/lib/python3.x/site-packages/ (where 3.x is the Python version installed when it's built), Rednotebook stops working for anyone who has not rebuilt the package after updating to Python 3.7.

Maybe it would be a good idea to bump pkgrel so that AUR helpers see it as a new release and suggest an update?

Otherwise you get an error when you run the program: a stack trace and a cryptic ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'journal' error that says what happened (journal module is missing) but it may not be clear why (it's still installed but for a different version of the interpreter). Bumping pkgrel could save people some debugging.

Thanks tedbuckland.

It seems that the dependency "python-gobject" is missing (here and in the rednotebook-git package). This should also fix the problem in the last comment.

I received the following error on installation:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/rednotebook", line 6, in <module> import journal ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'journal'</module>

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/rednotebook", line 11, in <module> import rednotebook.journal File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/rednotebook/", line 43, in <module> gi.require_version("Gtk", "3.0") AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'</module></module>

I did a "pip install journal", and now the module is found, but now I get the error "AttributeError: module 'journal' has no attribute 'main'".

Is this an issue with the journal module, or perhaps the Python version installed on my system? I'm running a straight Arch installation.

You're right, thank you for the heads-up!

rednotebook-2.3 seems to work with the PKGBUILD at

I replaced the dependency on python-webkit with webkit2gtk and added the optional dependency to PyEnchant (according to rednotebook dependency information).

Ola !
I get this error when I try to launch the soft:
2016-12-03 04:39:05,347 ERROR pywebkitgtk not found. Please install it (python-webkit): No module named webkit

I think a dependency is missing.

Thanks for the package!
