Installs with official instructions to /opt. Read here for more information and options for the systemd service. ( -> e) manual) The search engine is accessible at localhost:5000, set it as default engine using your browsers option. Binary builds are available at Chaotic-AUR!

@tyler19820201 You can make locally trusted development certificates with the mkcert, and set your domain name in /etc/hosts.

Is it possible to do search via https instead of http without having own domain name and a https certificate?

A little help for new users: After finished to install this AUR package you might realized like it's installed files to

/opt/whoogle-search/ /etc/default/whoogle /usr/lib/systemd/system/whoogle.service

Now, all u have to do is type: sudo chown whoogle:whoogle /opt/whoogle-search/ -R and sudo systemctl restart whoogle.service

This is the issue:

/opt/whoogle-search/venv/bin/python: No module named app

Forget the last comment.

A Restart later:

Install it with yay -S whoogle-git.

After that, try to start it with systemctl start whoogle

Then it didnt start, if you run systemctl status whoogle you get the error /bin/python3: No module named app

But i tried today again. And now works. Maybe a bug in the git? dont know.

Could you specify where exactly this error is displayed please? The PKGBUILD follows the manual installations closely.

lunainvictum commented on 2021-12-03 22:19 (UTC)

This, and the another AUR Package dont work.

Following error comes everytime:

[..]/bin/python3: No module named app

Only manual install works.

Afaik config files and other stuff aren't deleted by applications usually.
