@firecat53, I'll now confirm your pinned comment, after an update to python-google-auth (which broke my installed version).

Rebuilt, then this little ditty showed up:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'aiohttp<4.0.0dev,>=3.6.2' distribution was not found and is required by google-auth

After installing python-aiohttp (and it's dependencies), and rebuilding goobook, the xdg error appeared:

AttributeError: module 'xdg' has no attribute 'XDG_CONFIG_HOME'

The pip install fixes it, and runs fine now.

Probably need to add python-aiohttp to depends.

Was just going by the 'provides...' on the pyxdg package page

@merlock pyxdg != xdg. Completely different modules.

merlock commented on 2020-09-03 03:09

@firecat53: couldn't you just add 'python-xdg' to the depends array?

python-pyxdg 0.26-6 is already in the Extra repo.

FYI the latest goobook version requires the python xdg module. Until I can package it for the AUR and update the PKGBUILD, you will need to pip install --user xdg for goobook to continue working.

@Zimbi, just rebuild the package. This is a git package so it will always build the latest master, not just latest release.

Is there a particular reason for not upgrading to release 3.4?

There's a workaround for authentication problem:

You'll have to enable People API in google console as well.

PKGBUILD updated for changed dependencies. At this point...I'm not attempting to reauthenticate just in case I can't!

@merlock... Tried to re-authenticate on multiple systems. Looks like if you're authenticated you're OK for now, but can't re-authenticate since recently. Google has been cracking down on third party apps. Something to do with OAUTH2. Going to have to abandon this for now and use abook.
