I think your setup is an unusual one. Most people will have their python binary pointing to python3, since that is the default for Arch. For now I will leave it as is, and if anyone else has the same issue I will consider changing.

Sorry about the poor writing, It was late. Yes ,I had a symlink from python to python2. Since this package is only buildable using python3 I fixed my error by modifying the PKGBUILD to call python3 directly.

@Magbed What do you mean you have python pointing to python2? You made a symlink?

Getting this error when trying to build this package

EDIT: Found the issue this package uses python which i have pointing to python2. This we should make so the package calls python3 directly?

@volsa Good catch. Arch packages don't usually enable services by default, but I agree that there should be a message telling the user which service they need to enable. I will add a post-install hook. Thanks for letting me know!

Hi, first of all thanks for the package! I recognized that the systemd-service isn't enabled by default. Shouldn't the user be at least notified about that via a post-install hook?

@jshap70 I was considering that, but I wanted to remain consistent with the naming for the other package, lenovo-throttling-fix-git. I'm worried that throttled is so non-descriptive that no one will know what it's for. It was only recently that the upstream maintainers changed the name from lenovo-throttling-fix.

afaict this package should be renamed to throttled
