ServerLink.connect_to_server() cannot connect via ssh, twisted conch is missing: No module named cryptography.utils

I had to add python2-cryptography

Disowning since I do not use winswitch anymore.

I can confirm gregor's comment. Moreover, there are more files expected in the /usr/lib/winswitch directory (such as delayed_start), so you're best off just symlinking /usr/share/winswitch to /usr/lib/winswitch to get things working with the least effort.

I had troubles connecting to winswitch using xpra. After debugging I found out that winswitch expects the script virt_server_daemonizer in /usr/lib/winswitch/ but with your package the scripts get installed into /usr/share/winswitch. this renders xpra support unusable. kind regards gregor

0.12.19 available. Built fine here by amending the PKGBUILD. md5sum: c1024896c548c26b80a9014ff77f74ac

I've created a patch to update PKGBUILD to ver. 0.12.18-1. Please find my patch here: Using this, winswitch ver. 0.12.18 does build for me. However, due to other problems I'm not able to get winswitch working so this is not a proper test. I hope this PKGBUILD can still be of use. Clemmitt

"Description: Window-Switch is a client server tool to start and control virtual desktops" When creating a package description for a package, do not include the package name in a self-referencing way. For example, "Nedit is a text editor for X11" could be simplified to "A text editor for X11". Also try to keep the descriptions to ~80 characters or less.

I also encountered that problem. Could it be locale related?
