The PKGBUILD file is marked as executable, please change its attributes to rw:

$ chmod 0644 PKGBUILD

Can you adopt python3-kitchen and change its pkgname as well. I am suggesting this since you maintain rtv. I could adopt it but I don't have any use for it as such and would probably get disinterested quickly.

Can be installed outside of pacman/aur with:

pip install rtv

However, as mentioned by ac4r_g0 it requires an old version of praw which supposedly has reached EOL.

What happened to the mailcap-fix dependency?

ac4r_g0 commented on 2017-01-07 15:48

Python-praw is updated to "v4+" in the repos, rtv needs python-praw "v3.5"

The big problem is, for the moment, that developer won't update rtv to support the new versions of python-praw in a near future.

By the way, the package rtv-git needs python-praw "=>v3.5" or "<v4".

@KozRoss So I have no similar error on my up to date machine. Can you simply try reinstalling this package? I think at this time the python-praw package is working for rtv. Feel free to contact me via the email in the packagebuild file if the error continues.

Just got this error dump when trying to run this, having installed python-praw-git as per the earlier suggestion:

@aexl no it's not, don't know how that got overlooked. Fixed, and thanks.

I think git is not needed in the makedepends of the PKGBUILD, right?

agwblack commented on 2016-07-08 08:44

Should be fixed upstream now:

Once the arch linux package for python-praw is updated then this should work again. In the meantime you can just make sure to install python-praw-git from AUR instead of python-praw and it should work :)
