Historic reasons. Foremost I wanted a working blink application after some breakage. I realized only later the extent of the python2 package armageddon following it's EOL status. Also I am unsure if AG Projects will develop a python3 version of this software. If they do, the work would be superfluous. Then like everybody else my time is severely limited, so I have to choose wisely what to spend it on. Traditional AUR package makes no sense here, because more and more dependencies are going away or become broken. If there will be no python3 version (I suspect there won't be) then I might read up on how to include all necessary python2 dependencies within one new blink package.

Why you didn't make a normal PKGBUILD or AUR package?

Yep package protobuf does not get installed when one uses local packages.

I updated the base64 blob below with a fix, added protobuf in line 14 so that is gets installed as a dependency with the first batch.

It is becoming more difficult to keep this package going though.

I installed protobuf and now it's compiling fine and Blink works. Thank you!

Why is python2-protobuf missing? Paste full run of the script.

Try to change into python2-protobuf and do a "makepkg -Ccfi" to try and build and install it.

Now it gives this error:

bsdice commented on 2020-07-02 08:14

mkdir tmp

cd tmp

pico a.txt

(copy paste all base64 data in there, save file)

tr -d ' ' < a.txt | base64 -d | tar tvz

I don't know how to use that. If I copy the whole thing and put it into a txt file, it gives me the following error:

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file

tar: Child returned status 1

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
