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.

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 https://github.com/Lokaltog/powerline-fonts 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?

You should most probably not provide the fonts in this package. The fonts are in another repository. This should optdept on the fonts package at best. Currently the fonts package is in file conflict with this one and that's rather bad.

I managed to get the symbols without the weird characters by removing the lines that install the fonts in this PKGBUILD and installing a powerline-patched font from the AUR

Yes, you need set laststatus=2 to show any statusline in vim. It's a common setting and not a "hack" or anything like that. :)
