sputnick commented on 2017-01-11 20:14

DONE, thanks for information

laurentb commented on 2017-01-11 18:10

python2-gdata should be replaced by python2-google-api-python-client

python2-elementtidy support has been removed a while ago

sputnick commented on 2017-01-09 22:13

Updated PKGBUILD :

- python2-setuptools modified in PKGBUILD
- bash completion added
- was stuck with 1.1 because of the link git:// corrected to, now 1.2 is OK

Spheerys commented on 2017-01-09 17:12

I can't install this git version because setuptools, as said before.
By the way, the 1.2 is out but the git version is still pointing to the 1.1

laurentb commented on 2016-09-08 19:02

It should be python2-setuptools, according to the non-git package.

It is useful, you can't install weboob without it.

ryuta commented on 2016-09-08 17:45

setuptools dependence does not exists.
Is it useful ?

laurentb commented on 2016-02-13 22:58

Weboob 1.1 just got released, you might want to use that instead of -git.

New dependency: python2-futures

Otherwise, for the git version (and upcoming 1.2), we now use Qt5, so replace python2-pyqt4 by python2-pyqt5 and phonon-qt4 by phonon-qt5.


Buridan commented on 2016-02-13 21:01

pkgver can't contain - anymore , please replace it by something else.
Add dependency : python2-pyqt5

cyberic commented on 2015-08-09 18:56

Thx for this PKGBUILD.
Would it be possible to add 'make' to the makedepends?
I think it is needed.

sputnick commented on 2014-10-20 15:55

Automatic update on new versions fixed (was broken).

sputnick commented on 2014-09-22 11:12

PKGBUILD updated

laurentb commented on 2014-05-23 18:13

You should also update the dependencies from the latest 0.i.

ianux commented on 2014-05-22 15:58

This PKGBUILD is outdated (stuck on 0.d branch). Here is an up-to-date version:

sputnick commented on 2013-10-15 20:34

pkgver() added. PKGBUILD will be updated only on versions changes.

Scimmia commented on 2013-10-11 22:04

For the pacman 4.1 updates, I mean the link josephgbr gave you months ago:
Short version: stop doing the clone manually and add a pkgver function.

As for the automated update, why?!?!? That does nothing but annoy your users, you only need to update the PKGBUILD when something important changes. I know that if I was a user, I would have abandoned this package months ago and just maintained my own locally.

sputnick commented on 2013-10-11 09:26

@Scimmia: this is an automated update. What do you mean by "still not updated for pacman 4.1" ?

Scimmia commented on 2013-10-11 07:03

So two useless updates later, still no response.

Scimmia commented on 2013-10-09 05:20

I see this in the recent packages feed all of the time and have to ask, why is the package updated so often? Dep changes? And why is it still not updated for pacman 4.1?

sputnick commented on 2013-08-05 22:00

I don't find any remplacement for python2-qt, it was removed.

Feel free to update the thread if something's missing.

twister commented on 2013-08-05 21:43

python2-qt can't be find.
I think this packet have been renamed or replaced, could someone update the PKGBUILD with the correct dependency ?

sputnick commented on 2013-04-22 12:54

@josephgbr : DONE

rafaelff commented on 2013-04-22 05:19

Please update PKGBUILD to be compatible with pacman 4.1

sputnick commented on 2013-01-30 14:31

@ianux, DONE.

ianux commented on 2013-01-25 00:04

You should add python2-cssselect which is required (at least) by some videoob backends.

sputnick commented on 2012-11-18 15:03

PKGBUILD reviewed accordingly to linkmauve's proposal

linkmauve commented on 2012-10-26 16:20

python-clientform isn’t needed anymore by weboob since python2-mechanize replaces it, all the other python- packages can be finally replaced by their python2- equivalent, pyxdg by python2-xdg, pyqt by python2-pyqt, only pygtk stays like that since gtk3 has a much better builtin bindings system (the same as gtk2 actually, pygtk was just there before).

Also, the list of dependencies is pretty big, while most of them aren’t needed for some backends, so it would make sense to put them as optdepends instead, with the list of modules requiring each one listed in the description of the optdepend.

linkmauve commented on 2012-07-22 15:49

python-nose and python-routes should now be called python2-nose and
python2-routes in their python2 version.

vnoel commented on 2012-02-06 08:38

Actually, I don't want to take care of this package anymore, if someone is interested, I'm leaving my space :)
I updated for the dependency, but I'm pretty sure it is not the only one missing…

vnoel commented on 2012-02-06 08:36

ok, thanks :)

Francois_B commented on 2012-02-04 19:05

mimms is missing as dep. It is needed for downloading (at least for francetelevision backend)

vnoel commented on 2011-05-14 14:10

Thank you, done :)

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-14 13:29

python-yaml should be python2-yaml

vnoel commented on 2011-04-14 07:17

updated dependency python-feedparser to python2-feedparser

vnoel commented on 2011-01-21 07:21

renamed dependency pyqt to python2-qt

vnoel commented on 2010-11-15 08:37

So, here is an up to date version, I will also uploid a weboob-stable-git version :)

vnoel commented on 2010-11-15 08:36

@AlexS: seems it was disown, I just adopted it :)

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-15 00:27

vnoel: unless I'm wrong, this package is not maintained, so you should ask the admins to give you access to its maintenance. It would be nice if you could do it.

vnoel commented on 2010-11-14 12:51

Hi, if you cannot take care of the package, I would be happy to maintain it :)

vnoel commented on 2010-11-10 09:30

Hi, I updated the package python-prettytable and the python2 version is now available as python2-prettytable:

python-prettytable is for python 3!!

vnoel commented on 2010-11-08 20:57

Hi, here is a working PKGBUILD with python2 dependency.
I did not include the change for the stable branch.

I also added all the dependencies that can be found in the debian packages... !

pkgdesc="python web tool: Web Out Of Browsers"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('python2' 'python-dateutil' 'python-mechanize' 'pyxdg' 'python2-elementtidy' 'python-html2text' 'python-yaml' 'python-lxml' 'python-html5lib' 'python-clientform' 'python-feedparser' 'python-gdata' 'python-nose' 'python2-prettytable' 'python-mako' 'python-routes' 'python2-webob' 'python-imaging' 'pygtk' 'pyqt' 'pywebkitgtk' 'python-pysqlite' 'python-simplejson')
makedepends=('git' 'setuptools')


build() {
cd ${srcdir}
msg "Connecting to GIT server...."

if [ -d ${srcdir}/$_gitname ] ; then
cd $_gitname && git pull origin
msg "The local files are updated."
git clone $_gitroot

msg "GIT checkout done or server timeout"

cd $srcdir/$_gitname
python2 install --root=$pkgdir || return 1

Hi, here is a patch to use the stable branch and python2 at the installation.

vnoel commented on 2010-11-08 09:40

Hi, use python2 :)

Or maybe report a bug at weboob so that they support python3.

maturain commented on 2010-09-11 18:33

added pyqt

Anonymous comment on 2010-09-04 00:19

also missing python-qt, that lack leads an installation failure (complains about the lack of pyuic4)

maturain commented on 2010-08-10 16:24

thanks. the following dependencies have been added : python-mako python-routes python-webob

Anonymous comment on 2010-08-09 22:13

Hi, it seems that python-routes is a missing dependency.
