One suggestion: can we add wmctrl as an optional dependency? Without it, the window does not focus in Wayland. See

the build error is due to pyenv (atleast in my system), run pyenv local system in a terminal and proceed to install

Sorry, but I cannot reproduce this issue and I don't see how it could happen. PKBUILD clearly states that makedepends=('python-distutils-extra')

@ulauncher I'm still getting the same error:

"To build ulauncher you need "python3-distutils-extra" ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting..."

Got this error.

Starting build()... File "", line 12 print('To build ulauncher you need "python3-distutils-extra"', file=sys.stderr)

The error happen event on ulauncher-git package.

All system packages are updated.

The issue with missing python modules has been fixed. Turns out some python packages are now being installed into /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages, but ulauncher is ran by python3.7 which wasn't able to find those.

Fixed in v5.4.1 by adding site-packages from python3.8 to PYTHONPATH

@keno, thanks! Had the same issue, switched to dev now, and it seem to be working just fine.

Was getting the following error message whenever i tried to run ulauncher-toggle from the terminal:

  • "Failed to open connection to "session" message bus: Using X11 for dbus-daemon autolaunch was disabled at compile time, set your DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS instead."

I tried to set the display variable, but never got it working...

  • 5.3.12
  • X.Org X Server 1.20.6
  • pixman: 0.38.4
  • Not forcing to login to xorg (wayland) in etc/gdm/custom.conf (tried forcing, no success)

The package does not start at all for me now, I switched to the DEV version of it.

Might be an idea to bump pkgrel as the package needs to be rebuilt for Python 3.8 - handy for automated AUR tools (without a rebuild, the package won't start).

Why is the propagated version 5.2.0-1 and the actual used version is 5.3.0-beta1?
