To use battery module, `upower' seems to be required.
Then I think optdepends should include `upower'.

There's been *a lot* of updates since the last PKGBUILD update. Please search the GitHub issue tracker at, and report any issues there as I'm not currently contributing to Powerline development. I think you have to update your config file, as it appears several backwards-incompatible changes have been introduced since the previous PKGBUILD update.

See and for similar issues. Also try running powerline-lint to debug your config files.

After this update, powerline does not work for me. Get many errors like :

2014-10-15 12:02:41,925:ERROR:vim:matcher_generator:Failed to import attr nerdtree from module powerline.matchers.plugin.nerdtree: No module named 'powerline.matchers.plugin'

Why is the i3 and awesome support missing?

FernandoBasso commented on 2014-04-27 13:01

I had to

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages

Not that it is 3.4, not 3.3. It worked for me.

fontconfig is required for the commands in .install script to work and also the
"export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python3.3/site-packages"
needs updating for python 3.4.

freestyler7 commented on 2014-04-04 22:00

fontconfig dependency is needed for fc-cache and friends to work in .install script.

Unfortunately yes. Python 3 support usually isn't built with vim, and I think this package should be available as long as we support Python 2. I'd like to ditch Python 2 completely as well, but I don't think that can happen for another couple of years.

The font provided in this package only includes the glyphs, and works as a fallback for *any* font, so in many cases it's not necessary to use a patched font.

I'm not sure how other powerline font packages conflict with this one, if they use as a source then PowerlineSymbols.otf shouldn't be included. If the fallback font is included in other packages anyways, they should remove it, as the fallback font only includes the powerline glyphs and shouldn't be part of a group of full fonts.

Is there any merit in keeping this package around? Why not Python 3?
