@amiad: Sorry for the delay, I didn't enabled notifications of this package before; now I enabled it.

A tarball for beta is not available, however you can easily git-clone a specific commit, or download a zip archive file of a specific commit from GitHub. See e.g. 'jhbuild' package (which I maintain). Feel free to contact me if you need more detailed info.

btw, if you plan to create another package, I suggest you to go ahead with "-git" (to dynamically update the version) instead of a -beta/-dev (newer, unreleased), as this software don't have (currently) much development activity; if some development happen in the git-repo, then there would be a git-package ready to get it. Just my 2 cents on the subject.

@rafaelff: I update the deps.
Where the beta? Maybe I will create new package for its.

rafaelff commented on 2017-04-29 21:02

@amiad: Please replace 'translate-toolkit' with 'python2-translate-toolkit-lib', as it provides all translate API built with python2.

By the way, could you please update Virtaal to the unreleased 1.0.0 beta1 version? I've been using it for some time and it looks stable enough, and also fix some bugs from 0.7.1.

MazeChazer: the reason is that translate-toolkit is now built with python3, which is incompatible with virtaal as it requires python2. This is easily solved providing a translate-toolkit's libs built against python2. I'm working on a AUR package for that. Please wait a bit.

I can't even build this package anymore:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./setup.py", line 64, in <module>
from translate.tools.pocompile import convertmo
ImportError: No module named translate.tools.pocompile

This package is incompatible with translate-toolkit 2.0.0 since the latter no longer provides Python 2 libs.

$ pacman -Qs virtaal

Since a couple of days ago, Virtaal is freezing on startup. It doesn't matter if I open it with or without an existing PO file: the main window opens, I see the header of the window, but nothing more is displayed.

Is it just me?

Virtaal has a new home http://virtaal.translatehouse.org/

Here is a up-to-date PKGBUILD, including dependencies: http://pastebin.com/ZP9zFbj5

ChrisOelmueller commented on 2012-11-07 10:29

Similarly python2-simplejson and python2-pycurl. Would you mind an update?

ignace72 commented on 2012-10-17 23:50

modific python-pysqlite to python2-pysqlite

tarakbumba commented on 2012-03-20 21:35

Package updated:
* Change depends python-lxml to python2-lxml as now we have two different packages on official repos

tarakbumba commented on 2012-01-13 23:16

Package updated:
* Added install script to handle icon-cache, mime-cache and desktop-cache updates
* Changed deps version for python-lxml and translate-toolkit (older versions cause virtaal to crash on non-ascii encoding locales)

tarakbumba commented on 2012-01-12 11:16

I have owned this package and updated to 0.7.1 version.

I have owned this package and updated to 0.7.1 version.
**** IMPORTANT ****
There is a show stopper bugs that makes impossible to use virtaal for non-ascii encoding locale users:

** There is a upstream python2 bug that makes impossible to use virtaal for non-ascii encoding locale users.( See http://bugs.python.org/issue13099) Those users should repackage (via ABS) translate-toolkit with the upstream patch (http://bugs.locamotion.org/attachment.cgi?id=802) that workarounds this python bug; until Arch Packagers decide and provide a patched translate-toolkit-1.9.0 or upstream releases a new stable version or python developers release another bugfix release.

I have reported this issue to flyspray (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/27907?project=5) . So, i' ll not provide PKGBUILD for translate-toolkit until get a reply from package maintainers.

I have owned this package and updated to 0.7.1 version.
**** IMPORTANT ****
There are two show stopper bugs that makes impossible to use virtaal for non-ascii encoding locale users:

**First: Non-ascii locale users (ie. Turkish) should build and use python-lxml > 2.3.2 until Arch Linux packagers package 2.3.3 version which has fixed "unknown encoding: ASCII problem" error. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/lxml/+bug/899066

**Second: There is a upstream python2 bug that makes impossible to use virtaal for non-ascii encoding locale users.( See http://bugs.python.org/issue13099) Those users should repackage (via ABS) translate-toolkit with the upstream patch (http://bugs.locamotion.org/attachment.cgi?id=802) that workarounds this python bug; until Arch Packagers decide and provide a patched translate-toolkit-1.9.0 or upstream releases a new stable version.

I have reported those issues to Arch Linux packagers and waiting for their reply. So, i' ll not provide PKGBUILDS for translate-toolkit and python-lxml yet.

I am a robot. AUR guidelines suggest to not include binaries. Examples:
virtaal/virtaal-0.6.1.tar.bz2
The tarball is alarmingly large: 1162KB. Compressed files detected. This robot will not bother you again.
