I kept python-pillow an optional dependency in case people only wanted to use the CLI or curses frontends, which don't require that module.

This unfortunately means that when using the GUI frontends you do need to install this manually, but saves you a lot of cruft packages that would otherwise be installed for parts you don't use.

It seems that you were trying to run trackma-gtk, in which case things worked as intended, but if you got this error during install or when simply running trackma, let me know.

Seems like python-pillow became a required dependency on python3.6

trackma-gtk.desktop[10310]: pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'Pillow' distribution was not found and is required by the application

Sorry, I use QT myself, and completely forgot to test the gtk UI after the big change to Python3 that initially needed gobject, since the Changelog didn't mention any GTK changes.

I'm getting the same error and it presumably has something to do with

I have no idea what causes this though. For some reason setuptools can't find the 'gi' package from python-gobject, even though it shows up using setuptools' own find_package() function.

Unfortunately I won't be able to update the PKGBUILD until probably tomorrow, or file a bug report. A quick workaround for now is to manually remove gi from "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/Trackma-0.6.1-py3.5.egg-info/requires.txt" for now.

Getting this error when starting trackma-gtk:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'gi' distribution was not found and is required by the application

I have cairo and gobject installed. Am I missing something or is this an upstream bug?

Removed the inotifyx dependency, since that isn't available in python3 so we're falling back on lsof for now.

See for updates.

Now depends on python3.

Been a bit busy unfortunately so I missed this so good catch! Updated now.

python2-pyqt5 is now an optional dependency.

lsof is still more or less needed.

inotifyx is an optional dependency, if that isn't present, Trackma automatically falls back on lsof for media recognition.

I tried playing around with making lsof an optional dependency as well, but if neither are installed it obviously doesn't work, so either inotifyx or lsof needs to be a base dependency, and out the two of them, lsof is in the official repo's.

lsof isn't needed anymore.
