Hi, I have checked the dependencies of Debian package (3.2.1buster), and the dependencies are different:

/# apt-cache depends blink blink Depends: python Depends: python Depends: <python:any> python Depends: <python:any> python Depends: libc6 Depends: libvncclient1 Depends: libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 Depends: python-application Depends: python-cjson Depends: python-enum34 Depends: python-eventlib Depends: python-googleapi Depends: python-lxml Depends: python-oauth2client Depends: python-pyqt5 Depends: python-pyqt5.qtsvg Depends: python-pyqt5.qtwebkit Depends: python-sipsimple Depends: python-twisted-core Depends: python-zope.interface Depends: x11vnc

Would it make sense to modify the PGKBUILD to include same dependencies?

Thank you, it looks fine :)

Fortunately there is a flathub package already and it's working fine:

@mozo I have no idea, but probably try twinkle-qt5 instead?

mozo commented on 2020-03-17 21:25

python2-application, python2-zope-interface, and python2-twisted are missing. How to install Blink, any ideas?

Greetings! Just a heads-up, this will not compile anymore, because of this change:

Here is a replacement for the python2-gmpy2 package: Paste into a file called PKGBUILD in a suitable subdirectory, then run makepkg -Ccfi

I also made some smallish changes to this package for your consideration:



Official license of this software appears to be just GPL3, see

-license=('GPL3' 'FreeBSD')


Missing build dependency cython2:


I deleted the list and added back one by one. At one point blink complained of missing eventlib so I added it here:



The namcap -i pkg.xz check told me that it had found python2 as well as regular python (3.x, the default these days) within the package. I checked and found two "" which call python. To really keep everything python2, I added a sed snippet to explicitly call python2 here:

build() {

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-qt-release-${pkgver}"

sed -i 's/\/usr\/bin\/python$/&2/' \

"resources/chat/styles/Smooth Operator/test/" \


python2 build

@HarryH, dependencies have been updated and it should work now ok.

HarryH commented on 2019-12-01 11:43

@init: Maybe it happens only if you don't have installed python-xcaplib at all. I figured out the aur package of python-xcaplib is flagged out of date and the version 1.2.0 does not exist anymore on the source. So it breaks the installing when trying to download it.

init commented on 2019-11-30 16:47

@HarryH don't know what could be the problem in your case. I have just clean installed it.

HarryH commented on 2019-11-29 13:58

There is one missing file when installing package ... I get the message: Failure while downloading The file not exist anymore. There is a new one: python-xcaplib-1.2.1.tar.gz
