When you update Python, you need to rebuild all python AUR packages, including Ulauncher.

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?

unfortunately the package python2-levenshtein was removed from the repository. Therefore I get this error when I try to install ulauncher.

==> Error: Could not find all required packages: python2-levenshtein (Wanted by: ulauncher)
