It happend in sunflower-git too, anyway styles/main.css is being installed in /usr/share/sunflower/styles/main.css

alan1world commented on 2022-04-23 12:35 (UTC) (edited on 2022-04-23 12:37 (UTC) by alan1world)

During installation I saw this line:

warning: no files found matching '*.css' under directory 'sunflower'

Note this line doesn't occur in the sunflower-git package.

Hey, thanks for reporting this. Sunflower should have looked into different directories for this file. Let me double-check the code before I make any specific claims as to how to fix this.

Your fix should work but I have no idea why it should look for CSS there.

Don't know if this is an build or package error. Any suggestions?

MeanEYE commented on 2022-02-28 14:30 (UTC)

Hey folks! Hope you are doing well. Just a heads up, I released 0.5 version today.

bilthekid commented on 2022-01-04 19:57 (UTC)

@FabioLolix sorry for my late response. OK, I downloaded the PKGBUILD, everything build smoothly and, surprisingly, it executed successfully. So, I suppose a simple rebuild is needed for this package.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-12-19 15:38 (UTC)

@bilthekid can you rebuild the package and report back?

bilthekid commented on 2021-12-19 15:27 (UTC)

When I execute it from cmd, I get the following error: "importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: No package metadata was found for Sunflower". Could this be related to source or the PKGBUILD? Do you know how could i fix it?

bidulock commented on 2021-05-25 12:04 (UTC)

Please add python-setuptools to makedepends.

Huitzilopochtli commented on 2021-03-11 16:54 (UTC)

please add python-cairo package to the dependencies packages.

MeanEYE commented on 2021-01-07 10:15 (UTC)

Does this fix the issue? Or should I change something in source code.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-01-07 08:48 (UTC)

Thanks again for reporting. To note that it wasn't failing to start for me.

Dylan14 commented on 2021-01-07 06:14 (UTC)

Line 32 of the pkgbuild should be

install -Dm644 images/sunflower.svg "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/python${_pyver}/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg

With the provided file, the svg file can't be found by the sunflower program.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-01-06 17:35 (UTC)

I have fixed the pkgbuild copying a _pyver function from another pkgbuild

MeanEYE commented on 2021-01-06 16:32 (UTC)

Good catch. I have exactly the same issue with RPM packaging where if I target path specifically for newer Python versions I'd be making the package incompatible with distributions with older versions and vice versa.

alan1world commented on 2021-01-06 14:24 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-06 14:26 (UTC) by alan1world)

I've found the problem - the PKGBUILD contains the line:

install -Dm644 images/sunflower.svg "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg

At this point, Arch is on python3.9, not python3.8.

Ideally the install script should check what version of python is being used for the correct directory but not sure if it can do that.

MeanEYE commented on 2021-01-06 14:08 (UTC)

It's possible this issue is due to Python's setup not copying the file correctly or at all. Could you try cloning latest version from repository and doing python3 build which is what pkgbuild is doing.

alan1world commented on 2021-01-06 13:50 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-06 14:12 (UTC) by alan1world)

I get an error message:

gi.repository.GLib.Error: g-file-error-quark: Failed to open file “/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg”: No such file or directory (4)

Looking further into it:

File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/sunflower/", line 136, in set_window_icon
window.set_icon_from_file(os.path.join(base_path, 'images', 'sunflower.svg'))

The resource location should not be pointing to /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/images/ because that is above the sunflower package directory.

There is no folder called 'images' in the package directory.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-10-16 12:13 (UTC)

I just had a user come to IRC channel and state the following:

package form aur by yay and vte3 in one of dependency of it using arch on awesomewm whenever i start the sunflower it showing this error <Error: Unable to load plugin "file_list": No module named 'cairo'> though i have cairo installed so pls help me. it running ok before but suddenly it broke

Sadly I missed the person so this is as much information as I could give you.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-09-12 12:57 (UTC)

Thank you. Looks so much cleaner and robust.

duht commented on 2020-09-11 11:12 (UTC)

Here is it! Promised, long-awaited, desired and all new PKGBUILD based on Debian install script. Resulted package is more than 50% smaller than before and everything works as it should (I hope so).
It's based on git but with little modification should also work with stable version of sunflower.

duht commented on 2020-09-10 01:50 (UTC)

I agree in 100% with that. This mount manager did not seem practical to me. if I can suggest anything then take a look at the udevil package. You could use it to manage automatic mounts, detecting devices, etc. instead of gvfs. It's simple, small and has very minimal dependencies, but can handle all removable, optical, physical and network devices.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-09-10 00:11 (UTC)

Mount manager is semi-fixed. That is to say I am removing it. I want to have unified locations menu where you will be able to mount, unmount and go to location. This is where the bookmarks, physical mounts and virtual devices will be stored.

So far only physical devices appear in this menu, but I plan on adding mount manager stuff as well. The reason behind this change is that I dislike the idea of opening some window to do something then going back to managing files. Sure you can configure stuff in settings, but navigating to mount or some bookmarked directory should be the same effort and same operation.

duht commented on 2020-09-10 00:05 (UTC)

@MeanEYE Yes it's exacly it. I didn't know about ctrl+` keyboard shortcut which is very handy:). The plugin only has to add simple text to the status bar like this: 26 G free / 50 G. That's it. It would be great if you can do that.
Another thing that wonders me:
`Techman35 commented at 2020-07-25 01:41

@duht Thanks for the update
it's grate, mount manager is not working, hope they fix it soon.`
Can anyone confirm it? I don't use gvfs 'cause it has too many space-waste dependencies for me.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-09-09 22:52 (UTC)

@duht: Great, looking forward to new PKGBUILD. As for feature, did you check out the one I explained? It's exactly what you need ( but not visible all the time. As for making plugin I could make it for you if I find some free time.

duht commented on 2020-09-09 22:44 (UTC)

@MeanEYE I assume that splash.png is a picture displayed in about window? It works fine when is placed in /usr/share/pixmaps/sunflower/ like in your debian package. I used Debian years ago and it is not very different from Arch. As I said: tomorrow I'll make PKGBUILD based on Debian install script and it should work perfectly fine.
I have never written anything in Python so making a plugin isn't so easy for me.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-09-09 21:24 (UTC)

@duht I was asking for splash image to be placed in /usr/share/pixmaps, icons should go to icons directory. Using Debian install script as a basis for PKGBUILD would be the ideal solution as I use Debian and test it extensively.

Regarding total/free space display, Sunflower already has it albeit a bit hidden. It can be found in location menu or by pressing `Ctrl+`` (Ctrl+backtick in case markdown freaks out). My reasoning was that such functionality is only occasionally needed and moving it to such place would only reduce clutter. That said, status bar is extensible and making a plugin would be a breeze.

duht commented on 2020-09-09 15:36 (UTC)

Yes /usr/share/pixmapsis fine, but I think /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/ is more appriopriate for *.svg files.
Forget about If I have some time I'll make new PKGBUILD based on your debian install script without using and put it here. I don't know why AUR maintainers of sunflower and sunflower-git use which is buggy and in fact unnecessary.
Sorry for offtopic: but could you add an option to status bar to display free/total space on current directory like PCmanfm/SpaceFM file managers has? It's a cool stuff when I see how much free space left on device i.e. during copying files withoud additionally clicking or writig commands on a terminal.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-09-09 13:11 (UTC)

Sorry for late reply. Busy with work these days and switching internet provider in the midst of it all is not helping. Anyway.. copytree should absolutely handle directories as well. I don't have much experience with it and those lines of code are most likely not mine. I'll take a look. Can you confirm if /usr/share/pixmaps is also fine?

duht commented on 2020-09-07 21:50 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-07 22:24 (UTC) by duht)

@MeanEYE I'm not a python programmer, but as I know shutil.copytree function can copy dir structure. Or maybe you should simply use a bash script instead to install things? Replacing if part to something like if should maybe help?
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/sunflower.svg should be ok in Arch too, but installs all images to /usr/share/sunflower/images which is not recognized by Arch.

Thanks for your hard work maintaining this great file manager. I hope I helped.

hernantz commented on 2020-09-05 01:04 (UTC)

I had to install python-cairo to get it running.

MeanEYE commented on 2020-08-24 12:55 (UTC)

@duht: Thanks for taking the time to package this. Unfortunately went through so many changes I can hardly follow it. The fact there's no definite guide online on how to properly make one is annoying in itself.

That said, I have fixed inclusion of pot and mo files as well as fixed the typo.

Regarding splash in Debian build file we put it in /usr/share/pixmaps/sunflower/splash.png while sunflower icon goes into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/sunflower.svg. Arch might be the same regarding this.

Am not entirely sure how to make copy directory structure so any suggestion is more than welcome.

duht commented on 2020-08-24 11:41 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-07 22:19 (UTC) by duht)

@MeanEYE take look at package() section on my PKGBUILD posted below. It's based on your latest git. There is some bugs in
('share/sunflower/trasnaltions', list(str(i) for i in Path('translations/').rglob('*') if i.is_file())),
This line in your file has a typo 'trasnaltions' should be translations.
Additionally it copies only files without subfolders from 'translations' folder and as a result we get only one (the last one) *.po, *.mo and *.pot file.
In Arch translations should be in /usr/share/locale/[language]/LC_MESSAGES/\*.po.
'*.mo' and '*.pot' files are useless.
sunflower.png should be placed in /usr/share/pixmaps in Arch and I don't know where to place splash.png.

Spookcity commented on 2020-08-19 07:32 (UTC)

Yeah,I also get the same error as @bitwave. Thanks for working on this. Not sure what I'd do without sunflower

MeanEYE commented on 2020-08-18 11:17 (UTC)

Just so you folks know, I am here if you need some additional help regarding packaging this. I don't have much experience with Arch, but I can modify the project to better suit this distribution.

FabioLolix commented on 2020-08-18 10:52 (UTC)

@bitwave I didn't have any crash, however I've added the missing .svg. Also I've correct some dependcies

bitwave commented on 2020-08-18 07:59 (UTC)

Sunflower aborts with this error:

Maintainer: Please update this package to use a working PKGBUILD. I do not understand why you would take an orphanged package and not update it. Either update the package or let someone else do it. In the meantime I have updated sunflower-git with the appropriate fixes. commented on 2020-08-05 08:11 (UTC)

PKGBUILD from duht is working for me.

duht commented on 2020-07-25 16:07 (UTC) (edited on 2020-07-25 21:27 (UTC) by duht)

Uupss.. I mistakely deleted my previous comment so I post it again:

Hi guys. I made PKGBUILD that works for me.

It's not perfect, so feel free to upgrade it/make it better.

Techman35 commented on 2020-07-25 01:41 (UTC)

@duht Thanks for the update it's grate, mount manager is not working, hope they fix it soon. i like the look and feel and the popup window that show the progress when i copy and paste a file, looks awesome! commented on 2020-07-15 08:09 (UTC)

Hi guys, so where is the new version?

MeanEYE commented on 2020-05-23 22:14 (UTC)

I would recommend waiting for a bit with this release. We did fix number of issues, but feature parity is not there yet. It will be soon.

boenki commented on 2020-05-23 21:57 (UTC)

Your PKGBUILD does not work for me. And I think we should wait to update, this because the new version is not yet stable.

commented on 2020-05-23 15:06 (UTC)

Hey @boenki. The package has been out of date for a bit. Do you need help with maintaining it?

MeanEYE commented on 2020-05-11 18:38 (UTC)

Am preparing for a 0.4 release as we speak and there's need to update this package. Namely Sunflower 0.4 now depends on GTK3, GObject Introspection (python3-gi), character detection module (python3-chardet).

In addition to that, Sunflower is now started as a Python3 module. Shell script in dist/sunflower has been replaced with a python file which runs this module.

These changes should be the only ones that are "breaking" so to speak. Dependencies like pygtk, python2-dbus, python2-gnomekeyring, python2-notify are no longer needed. We use everything through GObject Introspection.

Thank you once again for helping maintain Sunflower for Arch. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

boenki commented on 2016-09-08 20:14 (UTC)

@ulukyn: thanks, I updated the lauchner. The desktop-file is taken from upstream, so you might want to file a bug here:

ulukyn commented on 2016-09-07 22:11 (UTC) (edited on 2016-09-07 22:17 (UTC) by ulukyn)

@boenki: The "sunflower" script on the snapshot don't start with any arguments. I have modified the file "/usr/bin/sunflower" to : > #!/bin/bash > exec python2 /usr/share/sunflower/ $* Another suggestion, the /usr/share/application/sunflower.desktop have the line: > Exec=sunflower %U But sunflower need -l or -r argument to open an URI. I have changed that by: > Exec=sunflower -l %U

MeanEYE commented on 2016-01-18 08:44 (UTC)

Version 0.3 is out. :)

whoami commented on 2014-12-18 13:07 (UTC)

dependency required gnome-icon-theme. Not enough hicolor-icon-theme

MeanEYE commented on 2014-08-29 08:47 (UTC)

Apparently librsvg is also required. Most systems get this library pre-installed. If absent GLib just ignores it and throws an error when we try to set window icon.

MeanEYE commented on 2014-08-03 10:15 (UTC)

If you wish. Without it Sunflower doesn't accept command line parameters, but it's not required.

boenki commented on 2014-08-03 10:14 (UTC)

thanks: in the DEPENDS-file I read: optional depends on python2-argparse. Should I add it as another optdepend? Again a SHORT explanaition please, if it can be used. Thanks.

MeanEYE commented on 2014-08-03 09:51 (UTC)

@boenki: I'd say "single application instance support".

boenki commented on 2014-08-03 09:47 (UTC)

@MeanEYE: ok, moved python2-gnomekeyring from depends to optdepends. How can I explain the optdepend for python2-dbus in a SHORT sentence? :D Thanks.

MeanEYE commented on 2014-08-03 00:09 (UTC)

@boenki GnomeKeyring is used for safe password storage for remote mounts. We create our own keyring and store all passwords there. If this package is not available passwords can not be entered in Sunflower. Just a safety feature.

MeanEYE commented on 2014-07-31 11:39 (UTC)

We expose some functions such as creating a new tab (terminal or files) and focusing main window. We also expose this API interface so potential plugins can extend their functionality through DBus access. Mind you this is the first implementation of DBus so it's probably messy. Currently implemented functions are used to ensure single instance of program is allowed. Since DBus is optional we resort to using lockfiles if it's not available.

boenki commented on 2014-07-31 11:36 (UTC)

What extra functions does installing python2-dbus provide? I would add that to the PKGBUILD. Any other comments how to improve the PKGBUILD are always welcome. Thanks.

boenki commented on 2014-07-30 19:49 (UTC)

thanks Arseniy: I fixed it.

Arseniy commented on 2014-07-30 16:53 (UTC)

python2-dbus instead python-dbus

MeanEYE commented on 2014-07-25 13:20 (UTC)

New optional dependency python-dbus. Also, version 0.2-59 is out.

MeanEYE commented on 2014-01-27 01:24 (UTC)

@boenki: Google Project Hosting disabled downloads. New versions will be available here: Can you please update the PKGBUILD? Thanks!

boenki commented on 2013-08-16 08:37 (UTC)

thanks mikecr & willemw: Both optdepends added.

mikecr commented on 2013-08-11 08:11 (UTC)

Hi, I believe this requires gvfs for the mount management to work. Perhaps that should be added as an optional dependency to the pkgbuild.

willemw commented on 2013-07-30 14:22 (UTC)

Add optdepends mutagen.

Genues commented on 2013-03-29 10:41 (UTC)

@MeanEYEЮ i send comment on you google page I find for a replacement gnome-commander, only work ftp stop to migrate. Thank you!!! P.S. Sorry for my bad English :)

MeanEYE commented on 2013-03-29 10:34 (UTC)

@Genues well, tell me what's not working well and I'll try to improve it.

Genues commented on 2013-03-29 09:21 (UTC)

Wonderful file manager! I'm sorry is not working well ftp.

MeanEYE commented on 2013-01-17 20:46 (UTC)

Thanks a bunch @boenki! :D

boenki commented on 2013-01-17 20:46 (UTC)

updated :)

MeanEYE commented on 2013-01-17 15:34 (UTC)

Oh, also, since this version python2-notify and vte are completely optional. Xterm, URxvt and others can be embedded as terminal tab.

MeanEYE commented on 2013-01-17 15:32 (UTC)

@boenki Can you please update checksums, I have repackaged archive to include some fixes and to reflect version which packages are built against. Sorry for inconvenience. Thanks for maintaining this. :)

Added desktop launcher, not sure if it works..

commented on 2011-08-18 08:44 (UTC)

Updated package version. @zippy: Thanks for the desktop launcher, i'll add it tonight :)

commented on 2011-08-17 20:42 (UTC)

This is a gui application, and deserves a .desktop launcher. The source includes a png to copy to /usr/share/pixmaps.

Please add package "extra/vte" as dependency or optional dependency. Missing of this package causes one nasty bug (file panel with only terminal tab can't get focus, and user can't add tab with file list on this panel)

It's a bug with gnome-vfs. You can apparently solve it for now by installing this package from aur (haven't tried it myself):

python-notify has been added as a dependency

Please add python-notify as a dependency. It refers to the same problem daedhel has.
