I have this problem too after last full system upgrade.
Downgrade those packages for blink to work:
pyqt4-common-4.12-1 -> pyqt4-common-4.11.4-5
python2-pyqt4-4.12-1 -> python2-pyqt4-4.11.4-5
python2-sip-4.19-1 -> python2-sip-4.18.1-2
python-sip-4.19-1 -> python-sip-4.18.1-2
sip-4.19-1 -> sip-4.18.1-2

Sip client is a critical application for me. I think we should wait till blink will update to use new python versions, till then I stuck with old python versions. And let's hope other applications won't update to use just the last python libraries.)

:0: UserWarning: You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module: 'No module named service_identity'. Please install it from <> and make sure all of its dependencies are satisfied. Without the service_identity module and a recent enough pyOpenSSL to support it, Twisted can perform only rudimentary TLS client hostname verification. Many valid certificate/hostname mappings may be rejected.

@zatricky I make a simply revision update to "force" rebuild

zatricky commented on 2017-01-16 08:48

Heads-up. Rebuild required due to dependency libvncserver being updated from 0.9.10-4 to 0.9.11-1.

IMHO, not necessary that I adopt your packages. I think that you are working well and your packages are well maintained ;)

And about package names there are several docs about this:

It's a pretty literature to go to bed... xD

promike commented on 2016-08-03 10:05

Yes, I realized that our packages have some differences. I was unsure about your package name, I just simply copied mine from the AUR Archive, so I didn't have to think about this a lot, but I believe you.

[If you wish you can still adopt my Blink related packages, I wouldn't mind it at all]

ogarcia commented on 2016-08-03 09:25

@promike, no the name is correct, the source is github, but source is from a fixed and stable release (blink-qt-2.0.0.tar.gz). The 'blink-git' name only can be used if you pick source files direct from master (aka: the devel branch).

Your package and mine are slightly different. I not use darcs to make it.

And yes, you're right with depends, consequence of "release early release often". I'll fix it soon.

promike commented on 2016-08-03 09:00


I think the name of your submission is inappropriate. It should be 'blink-git' if your source is from github. Else there would be no reason to duplicate an existing package. You can adopt mine if you really want to contribute to AUR.

Besides this, your dependency list is redundant. My python2-sipsimple has some of these dependencies that you indicated here. Namely cython2, python2-cjson, python2-eventlib.
Copy mine (blink-darcs) if you are confused.

@theforeigner, you must check your system cause I can build python2-sipsimple dependency without problems in my up-to-date and pristine build system (see

Anyway you can use a prebuilded binary from this repo:

I'm very happy to see Blink back here on the AUR.

However, it seems I'm still stuck using the old orphaned version, as I'm unable to install the python2-sipsimple dependency.
