python2-dbus not found

Papyrus commented on 2021-04-12 04:07

Hey first contrib to aur comments

I got it to work by:
1. Cloning the repo
2. Changing python2-dbus to python-dbus in the PKGBUILD depends variable
3. pip install SCons
4. makepkg -si

The dependency 'python2-dbus' needs to be updated to 'dbus-python'.

Upstream url has also changed to The current listed one,, has a link to the new upstream but does not auto redirect.

I never got this to launch as system-wide systemd service (something about the pidfile not being there PIDFile=/var/run/


  1. I don't like running aur stuff with root
  2. I only need the xboxdrv to run the deamon so Warframe does not crash after 5min (I do not own/use a real Xbox Controller)

so I made a user service file which does what I need: (launch with systemctl --user start xboxdrv or systemctl --user enable --now xboxdrv in case you want it to auto start)

$ cat .config/systemd/user/xboxdrv.service

Description=Xbox controller driver daemon

ExecStart=/usr/bin/xboxdrv --quiet --daemon -c /etc/default/xboxdrv --detach-kernel-driver --deadzone 4000 --deadzone-trigger 10%

Patch hopefully moving off of py2-based dependencies entirely

I had to modify the PKGBUILD adding this at the end of the prepare section:

patch SConstruct ../scons-py3.patch
