@yochanamarqos: thanks! (I guess using the flatpak version is a temporary workaround.)

I'm now getting errors when i try to run vorta:

@renyuneyun: Nope. Can't reproduce it building in a clean chroot.

@bjo: python-setuptools is only required to build.

renyuneyun commented on 2021-07-14 21:56 (UTC)

Two more missing dependencies: python-setuptools-git and python-pytest-runner. Missing them would cause pip to infinitely search for a valid version for them and it always fails:

WARNING: Discarding (from Requested setuptools_git from has different version in metadata: '1.2'

(Though I'm not sure why pip complains about this, rather than finding the latest version and use it.)

I hope I will find some time today to include the patch.

languitar commented on 2021-06-20 09:43 (UTC)

Any chance to include the required patches here in the package as long as they are not merged upstream to get this package going again?

I ended up installing it with
trizen -S vorta
then editing the line were it required 'pyqt5<=5.15.3' and changing it to just say 'pyqt5'

then installed vorta, but when I tried to run it, it wouldn't work,
but then I edited the file:
and also changed line 3 where it says pyqt5<=5.15.3 to just say pyqt5
Then Vorta run perfectly :)
Thank you @bjo
