Thanks! The workaround in this case is simple: via the dropdown menu tools > preferences in the general tab there's another dropdown that gives the option to choose the spyder2 icon theme. This prevents the issue from recurring for the time being until the incompatibility between qtawesome and pyqt5 5.12 is resolved.

@akspecs: Seems to be a known issue:

After installing python-qtawesome-git I'm able to run the IDE, but buttons are glitching out with graphical artifacts as pictured here:

I have added all the new dependencies to PKGBUILD, except for python2-qdarkstyle which is not available.

I am not seeing the "Invalid icon name" exception. Do you have python-qtawesome-git installed and is it up-to-date?

I'm unable to run spyder3-git. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I get the following error:

edit: after installing 'python-atomicwrites', it became clear I also needed to have 'python-spyder-kernels-git' rather than just 'python-spyder-kernels'. Then I later learned that 'python-qdarkstyle' is also needed. But even with these extra dependencies installed, I'm still left with the following error:

The last line of the error being: Exception: Invalid icon name "format-letter-case" in font "mdi"

@cerikson: Thanks. Updated to include all new dependencies.

Just did a install on a fresh system and the dependency python-language-server was missing after install. Which caused spyder3 to crash on startup.

@CAM-Gerlach: Thanks. Updated as much as possible.

@willemw Hey, this is C.A.M. Gerlach, one of the Spyder developers. I just wanted to let you know a few quick things:

  • First and foremost, thanks for helping maintain the Spyder distro package on Arch!
  • The full name of our package should be (note capitalization) "The Scientific Python Development Environment", i.e. without the strange caps we eliminated several versions ago.
  • Unless required to be Github for technical reasons, you can update the main URL to point to our new site,
  • Should python-pyside and python=pyqt4 be dropped from the optional deps, since they are no longer supported GUI backends as of a long time ago, and 3.3.0 respectively?
  • Finally, if you'd like a more representative one-liner desription, feel free to use

    "Spyder is a powerful Python IDE combining the editing, analysis, debugging and profiling functionality of a software development tool with the data exploration, interactive execution, deep inspection and rich visualization capabilities of a scientific environment like MATLAB or Rstudio."

or some variant thereof.

Thanks again for all your work! I sent you an email with more details on all of this, for your reference.

@AnySomebody: lists all spyder3 dependencies.

I'm only going to provide the -git versions.

You have to install python-spyder-kernels-git manually (with the --asdep option). I don't know of any AUR helper that can help you with that.
