Just thought I'd post my workaround for getting this up and running:
1. Went to the website and discovered that the software is supposed to work with wxpython2.8 or newer.
2. Patched the depends on the PKGBUILD to 'wxpython>=2.8'
3. When I attempted to run after install I got the same error as snuffop so I implemented the same solution as nv2r/Delitum.
Now it works. Not sure if it's the "proper" solution but it works and I have my favorite task organizer back.

wxpython2.8 was removed from AUR

same worked for me:

mv pyparsing.pyc pyparsing.pyc.bak

I had the same problem and solved issue by deleting files
(found about pyparsing that may be the cause here:

I had the same problem. The fix for me was to uninstall python2 and all related packages and reinstall it. I don't know which package was causing the issue, some posts on the net mention pyparsing...

On the current version of task coach it will fail to launch. I'm not sure how to debug as I cannot figure out how to launch it from the terminal to see the output. I assume this is because it is launched via python.

Updated to 1.4.3

- Added libxss as a dependency

I found out that taskcoach uses libxss by trying to run it on a system without libxss. You might want to list it as a dependency.
