The strange thing is that the problem with Shiboken persists even after installing latest git snapshot of PySide and Shiboken though it was stated that 5.14 branch will address this issue

@hakunamenta: I suppose what you have to downgrade until this problem is sorted, is Python. The problem was introduced when upgrading to Python 3.8.

If you do not want the hassle, you can do like me and use an AppImage until this problem is solved. The AppImage takes a lot more disk and a lot more time to start, but other than that it works great.

downgrading freecad also does not solve the issue with Shiboken.ObjectType. i used pyside2 5.13.2-2, pyside2-tools 5.13.2-2 and shiboken2 5.13.2-3 anybody know what the last good version was? i do not have a working snapshot of my CAD-setup and i do not know how to fix this otherwise.

I've updated pyside2-git, pyside2-tools-git and shiboken2-git packages, but problem with 'Shiboken.ObjectType' object is not iterable still persists. Any idea?

dviktor commented on 2019-11-26 20:21

Please fix all PySide paths as done in freecad-git package and move shiboken2 and pyside2 deps to the depends array

If you're feeling extremely daring you could try to build the incomplete 5.14 branch of pyside2 first from here... git://

According to the PySide2 development notes from 14 November, 5.14 will be released, "hopefully in a couple of weeks." source:

This may resolve the Shiboken issue. You're free to test the branch before then though but there's no way to tell how alpha it is unless you follow the PySide2 gitter chat.

When I click on addon manager nothing happens and the following error appears in the console from which I have started the program:

Running the Python command 'Std_AddonMgr' failed: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/freecad/Mod/AddonManager/", line 10, in Activated import AddonManager File "/usr/lib/freecad/Mod/AddonManager/", line 52, in <module> import urllib.request as urllib2 File "/usr/lib/python3.8/urllib/", line 88, in <module> import http.client File "/usr/lib/python3.8/http/", line 5, in <module> class HTTPStatus(IntEnum): File "/usr/lib/python3.8/", line 164, in new enum_class = super().new(metacls, cls, bases, classdict)

'Shiboken.ObjectType' object is not iterable

Is there a way to run it with python 3.8? The "Shiboken object is not iterable" is killing me...

Fortunately, there's an AppImage available while this gets solved.

FreeCAD remains the only package I've installed that cannot handle my .gitconfig / .gitattributes. For now, I just temporarily rename the .gitconfig but it would seem that either "fixing" the line endings or putting a local ".gitconfig" or ".gitattributes" would take care of whatever is driving my git setup mad.

My git-fu is not that great. So, I'm open to quick fixes at my end also (with an explanation of what's bad about my current setup).

P.S. I've replaced the autocrlf = input with eol = lf and FreeCAD is still unhappy with it.

Thanks for the reply, @banzr. I started digging those errors and as you said, there are few recent topics on Freecad forum about the incompatibility with python 3.8 but no workaround yet.

I think I will stop doing huge updates while i'm working on CAD projects :|
