There are actually more problems than that, frankly it only worked for me in the first place because I had installed it using pip manually before creating the PKGBUILD.

Here's what the PKGBUILD should be (I believe, I haven't actually installed it), except this won't work as-is because python-pycaption doesn't exist (and I'm too lazy to create it, sorry!). If you do sudo pip install pycaption and then install using this PKGBUILD (after removing the python-pycaption depedency in it) then that should work.

Alternatively, pip can be used in the package function to install the dependency, but in that case there's not really much point to using a PKGBUILD for this package in the first place.

Looks like the filename is now launcher.png. Please update. If you want maint help, please add me. Thanks!

Ah you're right, looks like the repo has been modified a bit in the last couple days.

In any event, now that the pip installer adds a desktop file and launcher on its own I'm less inclined to maintain this, especially since a python-pycaption package doesn't exist to depend on. If you'd like to take it over I'd be happy to give it to you!
