From the post-install message:

  The Archlinux packages python-xdg and python-pyxdg conflict. If
  you need python-pyxdg, remove python-xdg from the PKGBUILD and
  `pip install --user xdg` or install goobook into a virtualenv.

I believe xdg is just used to open a browser for authentication.

why now use python-xdg?

@firecat53 - A-OK. Built fine.


firecat53 commented on 2021-03-15 02:20

Ok, fixed now, sorry. Didn't notice the changed man page build at first.

merlock commented on 2021-03-14 20:12

@firecat53 - still same error...normal build or in a clean chroot.

firecat53 commented on 2021-03-14 16:49

@merlock - can you please try again? It seems to be working now when I build from scratch. Thanks!

Latest update (2021-02-06 10:05) fails to build.

dno - Again, this is normal for VCS packages. The version is updated only when the package is updated by the maintainer. It does not get updated in the AUR each time a commit is pushed to the upstream repository. When you build the package, the version is updated for that package on your system. Edit: that discussion is 5+ years old.

firecat53 - I get that this is a VCS package the issue is moving the version up or not. I think it's at best confusing and at worst breaks the experience for people using AUR helpers to scan for upgradable packages.

There is a lively argument for/against the AUR VCS version update issues here:

For what it's worth, I would like to see the versions of these types of packages moved up periodically.

dno - This is the way VCS packages on the AUR work. Any -git package has to check by different means if there is a new commit, or just be rebuilt when you choose.
