Thank you to nobodywasinhere, this is no longer relevant and python-pychromecast6 has been fixed.

There is some dependency tweaking related to python-pychromecast6 involved in building this package. That package has broken, and requires a tweaked PKGBUILD.

  1. Download python-pychromecast6 git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/python-pychromecast6.git
  2. Open the PKGBUILD in your favorite editor.
  3. Delete line 7, _name=${pkgname#python-%6}.
  4. Add _name_simple=pychromecast on line 7.
  5. on lines 22 and 27, replace _name with _name_simple. Do not touch the rest of the line.
  6. Build as normal.

I have attempted to contact the maintainer of python-pychromecast6 hoping to adopt the package. Currently this is out of my control.

@SibrenVasse -> thanks for the information. Today i found the time to get it up and running again.
* downgrade python-pychromecast (a fast done PKGBUILD you can find at https://termbin.com/c7eu)
* upgrade python-ifaddr (a fast done PKGBUILD you can find at https://termbin.com/z8cg)
It seems like catt now needs 0.1.7 which isn't in the community repro as of today.

I couldn't do intensive testing and therefor they might break other python packages which require the default distribution packages but for catt they work.

@unknown78: unfortunately catt is currently broken with pychromecast 7. See issue and WIP PR here:

Cheers thanks very much

wasswart: I'm not familiar with aurget, but you essentially have to rebuild those two packages. I think you should do something like this:

aurget -Sb --force python-pychromecast python-casttube

Also a general warning that aurget is discontinued. See the table at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers and https://github.com/pbrisbin/aurget/issues/66#issue-485245712

Hi, only these two packages owns 3.7.

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.7/ /usr/lib/python3.7/ is owned by python-casttube 0.2.0-2 /usr/lib/python3.7/ is owned by python-pychromecast 4.1.0-1

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8/ -> lots using it

Not sure what to do, any help would be greatly appreciated, have just been using aurget & pacman, nothing done manually.

SibrenVasse commented on 2019-11-19 12:06

@wasswart: did you rebuild all python packages for python 3.8?

Test with: pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.7/

wasswart commented on 2019-11-19 09:16

Hi, getting: 'PyChromecast>=2.4.0' distribution was not found and is required by catt

pacman -Qs pychromecast

local/python-pychromecast 4.1.0-1 Library for Python 3 to communicate with the Google Chromecast

Thanks
