The PKGBUILD misses some depends and makedepends for building in a clean chroot.

depends needs python

makedepends needs wget

Consider adding the file being fetched during build() to be listed in the sources directly so that makepkg can fetch it and verify a checksum on the file.

Thanks for the update! Here it seems fluxgui uses python3 and I had to install the packages python-pexpect python-xdg afterwards. I guess this applies for all python2 dependencies. Before the update I had to remove the icons manually because there were an error that this files can't overwritten.

Hi ljmf00,

I updated the PKGBUILD to the new version (1.2.0), changing to python3 and including a new missing dependency:

I am not sure if new deps are needed as I may have them installed previously. Also, some of the old deps may be removed but I did not test. Flux is working fine for me with the newest version.

Currently can confirm the bug presented by @alaskanarcher. After running fluxgui and clicking OK at the ZIP/latitude prompt, the program exits with the same error. Can't install xflux manually since it's apparently a conflict with fluxgui, even though fluxgui doesn't seem to install xflux by itself.

When I build this in a clean chroot it succeeds but does not work when run. I get the error:

$ fluxgui 

Error: Please install xflux in the PATH 

Critical error. Exiting.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fluxgui", line 20, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 213, in main
    app = FluxGUI()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 28, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 46, in exit
RuntimeError: called outside of a mainloop

When I build on my normal system, outside of a clean chroot. fluxgui launches without issue.
