@Poscat Acknowledging the missing depedency, but I couldn't find python-pygobject. Instead I used python-gobject.

Poscat commented on 2019-12-21 23:26 (UTC)

Hi. I think you forgot the dependency python-pygobject

Corax commented on 2019-11-02 21:34 (UTC)

@dracorp: yes. The Target field of the hook specifies when the hook should be triggered (i.e. when any matching file is modified). The glib-compile-schemas command then generates the gschemas.compiled file from these XML files.

dracorp commented on 2019-11-02 21:05 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-02 21:06 (UTC) by dracorp)

@Corax: Are you sure?

cat /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/glib-compile-schemas.hook
Target = usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/*.gschema.xml                                                                                                                               
Target = usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/*.gschema.override

gschemas.compiled should not be part of the package, it is generated by the glib-compile-schemas Pacman hook (/usr/share/libalpm/hooks/glib-compile-schemas.hook). I suggest adding something along these lines at the end of package():

  rm -f "${pkgdir}/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled"

dracorp commented on 2019-10-04 16:39 (UTC)

thx, added to depends.

hengstchon commented on 2019-10-02 22:56 (UTC)

@marnas I got the same error. But I figured out it happens because you didn't get libappindicator-gtk3 installed. After installing this package fluxgui works.

marnas commented on 2019-03-08 22:02 (UTC)

I'm not sure if it's a missing dependency, but I was getting the error ValueError: Namespace AppIndicator3 not available solved installing libappindicator-gtk3

Kunda commented on 2019-01-11 12:45 (UTC)

Thank @zoo9aisaS6Uph0ja I'm asking though for @dracorp endorsement of this solution.

zoo9aisaS6Uph0ja commented on 2019-01-09 18:42 (UTC)

Yes, worked for me.

Kunda commented on 2019-01-09 16:14 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-09 17:52 (UTC) by Kunda)

So it's as simple as removing the /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compile file?

zoo9aisaS6Uph0ja commented on 2019-01-08 10:20 (UTC)

@dracorp: Thanks for that, after getting an error like @Kunda, I deleted the file and was able to install it just fine!

Kunda commented on 2019-01-08 10:18 (UTC)

@dracorp i get: error: No package owns /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compile

dracorp commented on 2019-01-07 21:41 (UTC)

Did you check pacman -Qo /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled?

Kunda commented on 2019-01-05 23:07 (UTC)

I had also fully uninstall the package and I installed it again. Now I have missing or wrong icon in tray.

For some themes image-missing.png is used, for some unknown. But not always file image-missing.png is available for a theme.

@alaskanarcher: I see the problem: new icons and new colors. See For some themes the icon has same color as background.

dracorp commented on 2018-02-21 17:35 (UTC)

Probably something is missing, but what?

alaskanarcher commented on 2018-02-21 05:57 (UTC)

I just installed this on a new minimalist system running i3wm and the tray icon appears to be missing. In its place is an icon that looks like a piece of paper with an X in it. Like what you'd expect a computer to display if an icon wasn't found.

I don't believe this is an issue with this package because it is working just fine on my old computer also running i3. But if anyone has any ideas on how to go about debugging this I would love to hear about it.

@drws: This is Git version of package. For more see:

dracorp commented on 2016-11-15 17:05 (UTC)

@anthraxx: thanks a lot

anthraxx commented on 2016-11-15 11:58 (UTC)

@dracorp: implemented via python2-libappindicator so if thats the only reason for libappindicator-activate-gtk2 you are safe to switch to the former

dracorp commented on 2016-11-10 07:15 (UTC)

Yes, but for a few or several hours.

ryukinix commented on 2016-11-10 05:01 (UTC)

@dracorp maybe you forgot to update the pkgrel=2 to pkgrel=3 on PKGBUILD. You can change that? Thanks.

dracorp commented on 2016-11-09 19:50 (UTC)

Yes, I can :)

monticel commented on 2016-11-09 10:00 (UTC) (edited on 2016-11-09 10:01 (UTC) by monticel)

It seems udiskie is providing and *only* for python3: /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/udiskie/ while fluxgui uses python2. This causes the error: File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 7, in <module> import appindicator ImportError: No module named appindicator while libappindicator-activate-gtk2 provides appindicator class for python2. So @dracorp: could you please add libappindicator-activate-gtk2 as a dependency and remove libappindicator-gtk2?

dracorp commented on 2016-11-05 23:19 (UTC)

@ryukinix; You should write this on the bug's page. Off course you can also modify the PKGBUILD for libappindicator: yaourt -G libappindicator-gtk2 cd libappindicator sed '34s/^/#/' -i PKGBUILD #comment no-python.patch makepkg -i --skippgpcheck

ryukinix commented on 2016-11-05 22:04 (UTC)

@kuplacos, great, finally i get it working again! My eyes thanks this. @dracorp, is possible to force the installation of the correct lib version that are working fine with this package? I have a lot of problems until this works, is pretty sad. In my machine for now only works with libappindicator-activate-gtk2, although last year I don't had that problem. Any thoughts?

LumaEmu1 commented on 2016-10-14 17:34 (UTC)

@dracorp: Lol, sorry.

dracorp commented on 2016-10-14 17:17 (UTC)

@LumaEmu1: Have you seen my post from 2016-10-07 19:01?

LumaEmu1 commented on 2016-10-14 17:06 (UTC)

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 7, in <module> import appindicator ImportError: No module named appindicator I got: pacman -Qi libappindicator-gtk2 | grep Version Version : 12.10.0-11

dracorp commented on 2016-10-07 19:01 (UTC)

@mgd; Added, thx. But you must wait for fix of libappindicator-gtk2: I use previous version from AUR.

mgd commented on 2016-10-06 23:35 (UTC)

It seems that python2-xdg should be added to the dependency list.

dracorp commented on 2016-10-05 19:46 (UTC)

@bartus: there is missing library in libappindicator-gtk2-12.10.0-11 pacman -Ql libappindicator-gtk2 | grep -e python.*so libappindicator-gtk2 /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/appindicator/ pacman -Qi libappindicator-gtk2 | grep Version Version : 12.10.0-10

bartus commented on 2016-10-05 13:26 (UTC)

I got this error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 7, in <module> import appindicator ImportError: No module named appindicator Debian have python-appindicator package but can't find similar one in AUR.

dracorp commented on 2016-10-04 09:36 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-04 09:37 (UTC) by dracorp)

@kupiakos: Fixed, you should to do pacman -Sy.

dracorp commented on 2016-10-04 09:13 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-04 09:28 (UTC) by dracorp)

@kupiakos: probably it should be libappindicator-gtk2 instead libappindicator-sharp, because both libappindicator-activate-gtk2 and libappindicator-sharp provide libappindicator-gtk2. I had outdated pacman's database. Some AUR packages migrated to Comunity.

kupiakos commented on 2016-10-03 04:08 (UTC)

I needed to install libappindicator-activate-gtk2 to get it to work.

dracorp commented on 2016-09-19 09:21 (UTC)

@abhinavd: thx, fixed.

abhinavd commented on 2016-09-19 06:32 (UTC)

@milenus Install the packages python2-gconf and libappindicator-sharp. @dracorp These packages must be added to the dependencies list.

milenus commented on 2016-09-10 15:18 (UTC)
