After a full system upgrade ulauncher fails to start with the following error: ''' Could not load image /usr/share/ulauncher/media/gear.svg. E: gdk-pixbuf-error-quark: Couldn’t recognise the image file format for file “/usr/share/ulauncher/media/gear.svg . . . File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/ulauncher/ui/windows/", line 393, in _render_prefs_icon surface = Gdk.cairo_surface_create_from_pixbuf(prefs_pixbuf, scale_factor, self.get_window()) '''

I've also been struggling with Ulauncher for about two weeks now. managed to get it sorted after a huge mission and then this morning there was a bump in version and it installed without any problems and Ulauncher not giving problems and working as expected.

python > python3.11 in PKGBUILD workaround works, but this is really strange why python uses lib directory of 3.10

Hi! This was broken, as of today, on my machine: turns out for some reason, the lib is installed in /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages, when my python interpreter is on version 3.11, so the package couldn't be found. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling this, and it didn't help unfortunately; not sure what I'm doing wrong.

A workaround I've found was to force the PROJECT_ROOT_DIRECTORY variable to the above directory in the /usr/bin/ulauncher script.

@friday I followed the instructions from that link, i.e., paru -S ulauncher --rebuild, but I still get the same error. I removed the AUR package, clone the repo and compiled from there, but still get the same error.

@nunonun you need, but that's already declared as a dependency. So it's your system that's broken. See:

Thank you @Misaka13514 The issue should be fixed now in 5.14.5.

Libnotify has been updated to 0.8.

You can edit 'Notify', '0.7' to 'Notify', '0.8' as temporary fix.
