aur/bluez-utils-compat no longer exists. It is now provided by the combination of extra/bluez-utils and extra/bluez-deprecated-tools.

I have python-gps3-0.33.3-3 installed via aura and get this when starting sparrow-wifi:

Traceback (most recent call last):

@ds9: Thanks, added. I also found aircrack-ng and aircrack-ptw are called as subprocesses. The latter is old and no longer exists, however.

I fixed the untracked files as well, so this will be necessary:

sudo rm -rf /opt/sparrow-wifi/__pycache__/*

@yochananmarqos I installed it and tried to use it and it complained about iwconfig missing. iwconfig is used 3 times : /sparrow-wifi-master/ result =['iwconfig'], stdout=subprocess.PIPE,stderr=subprocess.DEVNULL) ./sparrow-wifi-master/ result =['iwconfig'], stdout=subprocess.PIPE,stderr=subprocess.DEVNULL) ./sparrow-wifi-master/plugins/ result =['iwconfig', interface, 'channel', str(channel)], stdout=subprocess.DEVNULL,stderr=subprocess.DEVNULL) wireless_tools was not installed by default on my system.

@ds9: I didn't see that mentioned anywhere in the repo. How did you discover that?

Missing dependency : wireless_tools (as iwconfig is required)
