Ok, thanks. I've orphaned it.

Really interesting this @yochananmarqos's PKGBUILD.

I temporaraly solved this installation using a custom script that I've created to it, here is the link to it:

@dracorp I am an upstream contributor. This PKGBUILD does not work, while the one created by @yochananmarqos works perfectly. Please add him as a Co-Maintainer (or orphan the package so that he can adopt it).

@archisman: Thanks for the tips, I got it working. See my PKGBUILD

archisman commented on 2021-05-14 03:47

The is not ready yet. Till then, edit the PKGBUILD to do the following.

Download the master branch, and,

1. copy src/ --> /usr/share/brightness-controller/
2. copy src/ui/ --> /usr/share/brightness-controller/
3. copy src/util/ --> /usr/share/brightness-controller/
4. copy img/brightness.svg --> /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/brightness-controller.svg
5. Download `brightness-controller` and `brightness-reset`and copy them to `/usr/bin` (from releases branch
6. Download the .desktop file from releases ( and copy it to `/usr/share/applications`

Alternatively, download everything from the releases branch, which is used to create the Debian package.

The only dependencies should be python-qtpy(+ one of its optional dependencies, either python-pyqt5 or pyside2) and xorg-xrandr.

This fails to build without patchelf and python-setuptools.

I can't get this to work, so I'm not sure if there are more dependencies needed besides python-qtpy (+ either python-pyqt5 or pyside2) and xorg-xrandr.

I'm not sure. I've checked this by namcap.

archisman commented on 2020-05-12 03:55

Are all of these qt dependencies required? In debian, the dependencies are python3-pyside2.qtcore, python3-pyside2.qtgui,python3-pyside2.qtwidgets, python3-pyside2.qtnetwork and xrandr.

So probably xorg-xrandr, cx_freeze and pyside2 would do?

dracorp commented on 2020-05-11 21:25

Finally, fixed and updated PKGBUILD to the latest version.

archisman commented on 2020-05-11 08:49

Dependencies have changed. pyside2 is now a dependency.
