Quite a lot has changed in version 0.10.0 . For instance it doesn't need pyside anymore. I will write a new PKGBLD later this week, when I have some more time.
For now :

$ pip install leap.bitmask[gui]

also seems to do the trick

I’m not using Arch anymore, feel free to adopt this package, but take care of it!

I understand, and I'd like to thank you again anyway. I have been using the bundle for several months, but for some reason it stopped working a week ago. Unfortunately I have no time either to look into this now, but I'll be happy to help in, say, an few months' time.

You’re very welcome, but unfortunately I won’t find time to fix this for several weeks. I never actually used this package really, only occasionally. I’m not going to disown them yet but if someone wants to help and become a maintainer, I’d be happy to add them as one.

I have the same error as @kertase:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/leap/bitmask/services/soledad/", line 48, in <module>
from leap.soledad.client.secrets import BootstrapSequenceError
ImportError: No module named secrets

Upgrading to the latest version of 'python2-leap_soledad_client' did not help. I also replaced 'leap.soledad.client.secrets' in '' with 'leap.soledad.client._secrets' with no luck.

Many thanks to @DoctorJellyface for this great work!

I somehow get:

ImportError: No module named secrets

When starting the program, am I the only one?

Is it missing some dependency?

Thank you for the information!

Looks like QtWebKit is being phased out, the only solution is to create our own packages for pyside with QtWebKit.

I’ll try to make a bitmask-dev package later today, they’re on Qt5 so they should have this problem solved. It doesn’t look like they got VPN working yet though.

Hello there,

I just wanted to let you know that bitmask_client is not starting at all with the latest python-pyside-common, python-pyside and python2-pyside packages (1.2.4-5 and 1.2.4-6).
Fortunately, a downgrade to version 1.2.4-4 brings bitmask back to life.


@DoctorJellyface: Many thanks for maintaining this package.

Whops, sorry for the useless rebuild, had a bit a brainfart and promptly lost internet connection afterwards so I couldn’t reverse it.
