Building natively won't possibly work properly on arch. I suggest using LXD by default.

Please include this patch:

python-progressbar(2) is now in [community]. Please test the new packages in [community] (still in testing):

Everything should be compatible:

The following packages are dependencies: extra/python-xdg community/python-libarchive-c aur/python-debian

Could you add them to the PKGBUILD? I wasnt able to run snapcraft without them.

Is there any documentation on use Snapcraft on Arch? I have it installed but I cannot get my snap package to build. I keep getting the errors:

Could not find a required package in 'build-packages': "The cache has no package named 'name-of-my-required-package'"

I tried installing snapcraft again on another computer using pacaur instead of yaourt. I had a better experience. Snapcraft installed with no problems. Although, I did need to manually install the following packages in order for snapcraft to build my snap.

I was also missing the following python modules. These should probably be dependencies.


python-pymacarrons-pynacl I also had difficulty installing. I had to install the python-pynacl separately.

Additionally, I think the snapcraft version is behind. 2.15 is out.

I had problems installing the dependencies python-apt and python-petname.

The python-apt maintainers need to update the package version because upstream changed versions.

The python-petname is a split package. When yaourt tries to install it, yaourt tries to install both python3 and python2 versions, which are in conflict. I had to manually download the PKGBUILD, build the PKGBUILD and specify the python3 version to install with pacman -U.

the latest release is 2.12.1. It was released a few hours ago. However, 2.11 was released on Jun 10 and 2.12 was released 2 weeks ago. The current Ubuntu LTS comes with 2.12 [1]. Perhaps the AUR PKGBUILD should be upgraded to 2.12.1. I already build 2.12 without issues [2], by just editing version and release and skipping the checksum. I didn't try to build 2.12.1.

$ sudo systemd-nspawn -q dpkg -l snapcraft snapcraft-examples snapd|grep ii
ii snapcraft 2.12 all easily craft snaps
ii snapcraft-examples 2.12 all examples and demos for snapcraft
ii snapd 2.0.10 amd64 Tool to interact with Ubuntu Core Snappy.

$ pacman -Q snapcraft snapd
snapcraft 2.12-1
snapd 2.0.10-1

Since it's the AUR, I don't flag the package out-of-date.

Also missing on my system:

Not to be full list of missing dependencies, but the following had to be installed on my system in order to make it work. Please check other dependencies and update the list accordingly.
