please update the PKGBUILD, so the scons patch is correctly applied

Visione commented on 2019-08-06 14:29

edit: if you experience a Python mismatch in the SConstruct file.

Navigate to your package managers cache folder. For yay this would be: /home/user/.cache/yay/xboxdrv

uncomment line 31 in the PKGBUILD file

:30: # activate this patch when scons gets switched back to py3

:31: patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/scons-py3.patch"

Run makepkg as per default in said folder to build without errors.

Once build continue by (re)installing through Yay (recommended) or copy the files manually.

I noticed by controllers not working in games anymore when using xboxdrv - it used to work and I didn't change config. Did something about this package break or is it working for you?

@anthraxx: I'm definitely using scons 3.0.0-3 and python2 is installed.

@milbo: then you are most likely not using scons scons 3.0.0-3 from our repositories which uses python2. Also this is not a general help desk Arch Linux users are expected to be advanced and bring in some debugging themselves. Also all needed information about this issue should be in the comments.

Are you kidding me? I fixed it by adding python makedepends, just follow the link to the ticket you posted and you will see I indeed was right:
