Important note: Is recommended to receive the following key before to install:

$ gpg --recv-keys 7A9964831E98EED5

Also is possible skip the verification, adding the flag for (e.g makepkg, yay) --skippgpcheck, --nopgpfetch, respectively.

Hi @carlosal1015. Thanks, I'm a bit new here so sorry in advance, but will the following then be appropriate?

$ gpg --recv-keys 7A9964831E98EED5
$ yay -Syu --aur

Hi @David01, import the key as the pinned comment.

Hi, I'm sorry in advance for raising this question but when doing yay -Syu --aur to update, one gets:

gpg key (likely to be the same as imported by gpg --recv-keys 7A9964831E98EED5) is already expired.

you are right @carlosal1015, python-inkex is not needed to build the extension.

I run the PKGBUILD in a very standard bash shell (gnome-console).

When I try to generate some LaTeX output I get the same error as @David01 below (see also

Return Code: -11:
Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.

Have not figured out yet what is going on.

Please don't depend on typst. The package requires either LaTeX or Typst to be installed, but not both.

carlosal1015 commented on 2023-11-18 15:18 (UTC)

Hi @davidovitch, inkscape already provides /usr/share/inkscape/extensions/inkex/.

IMHO, PKGBUILD's python-inkex forgot python-build, python-poetry-core, python-installer as makedependencies and installed over /usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/inkex/, i.e., non-default path of inkscape.

Which shell is activated in your session? I guess it's not bash, maybe I must change this path.

davidovitch commented on 2023-10-24 13:44 (UTC)

It seems python-inkex (AUR) is now also a build dependency.

Further, on my system I need to have the pwd command in lower case on line 21, like so:

PYTHONPYCACHEPREFIX="${pwd}/.cache/cpython/" python --inkscape-extensions-path="${pkgdir}/usr/share/inkscape/extensions"

Hi @David01, I tested on my real machine, preview is great and the extensions is working as well. No idea what is happening. Maybe could you try to reproduce later the issue.
