When I last created the PKGBUILD python-pygame did not successfully build. Now it does so I changed the dependency.
As to python-yapsy: I guess this was a depedendy sometime, not anymore. Same with netifaces.

I updated the dependencies and also now am using the development branch of tuxemon, because its more up to date.

Is there any reason this depends on python-pygame-hg rather than python-pygame? Is any reason that tuxemon depends on python-yapsy or netifaces?

Tuxemon seems to work with just python-pygame. (To the extent that tuxemon does work in its current state)

I was able to get the game to run by editing PKGBUILD to depend on `python2-pygame` instead of `python-pygame-hg` and installing `python2-pip` and running `sudo pip2 install pytmx`.

MCMic, I'll create a binary soon, thanks for bringing this up.

As to the error you posted, that's a problem of the sourcecode of the game. This is already fixed in the development branch and the next release will probably have this fix.

You should provide a binary in /usr/bin so that we can launch the game with «tuxemon» You could also generate a desktop file with gendesk.

I can’t launch the game:

there is now support for python3

Azul commented on 2015-08-20 08:02

Yep that's what it was. I was dumb and didn't realize it was python 2.7

zufallsheld commented on 2015-08-19 04:48

You have to use python2 to start the game, e.g.:

When I do this after I CD into /usr/share/Tuxemon

sudo python /usr/share/Tuxemon/

it gives me

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/Tuxemon/", line 44, in <module>
import pygame
ImportError: No module named 'pygame'

What's the error message, azul?
