Thanks for maintaining!

the post_update function can be removed as pacman features hooks that will run automatically.

This issue exists with both old and new receivers.

solaar-cli -d show

Conflict with ltunify-git removed.

However you may want to look at solaar-git instead since there have been no releases drafted since Jul 24, 2013.

Manpage for solaar-cli is missing!

@atriix Can you revert that change? I've adopted and updated ltunify-git yesterday by renaming the udev rules file so the packages can be co-installed.

@jamesan PKGBUILD has been updated to conflict with ltunify-git

jamesan commented on 2016-11-02 10:36

This package conflicts with ltunify-git as both packages install /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/42-logitech-unify-permissions.rules. At a glance, the file as specified in both packages define identical udev rules (except that Solaar includes an additional USB product ID, 0xc52e, for the MK220 classic Nano receiver).

Can either:
1. the file be renamed so both packages can be installed in a system; or
2. ltunify-git be added to the PKGBUILD conflicts variable to acknowledge that both packages cannot be installed at the same time as they are now?

I'm submitting a similar comment for the ltunify-git package as well, as only one PKGBUILD needs to change to resolve this issue.

@Lekensteyn, I guess this also explains why on Wayland there is no tray icon...

Lekensteyn commented on 2016-04-17 12:16

The tray icon issue happens because it uses the XEmbed protocol to create it. xembedsniproxy (used by KDE Plasma) is supposed to bridge that old protocol to the modern protocol uses by Plasma, but it does not seem to work well for all programs. There is no fix for it (yet), patches are welcome.

The warnings were fixed upstream with e1eee2e078ae986bb2e0947ce5a0ddca888a23ba.

Hi, just installed 0.9.2-5, when I open solaar I get

/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/solaar/ PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/solaar/ui/ PyGIWarning: Notify was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Notify', '0.7') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
from gi.repository import Notify

An icon appears, it recognizes the mouse that's plugged in and displays the battery level, but I cannot interact with it, left or right click, so I cannot pair new devices. Using kde/plasma. Any ideas? thanks
