Until the change makes it upstream, I propose the following PKGBUILD which
contains the changes suggested by petelewis:

Kind regards

Arch has just replaced python2-distribute with python2-setuptools.

To get this to build and work, I found that I had to:

1) Change the depepend and makedepend from python2-distribute to python2-setuptools.

2) Replace line 58 of

I guess this should/will probably make it upstream at some point, but then I have no knowledge of python packaging. HTH.

Missing a dependency for python2-six also.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/goobook", line 5, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 2850, in <module>

needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 594, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: six

Installing it will fix it.

Updated goobook-git (1.5) and python2-hcs_utils (1.4rc5) to most recent releases. You shouldn't get any errors now. Thanks for the heads up.

Latest version seems to require hcs-utils>=1.3. However, when I update to hcs_utils 1.4rc5 I get the following error:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: argparse>=1.1

I have updated my Arch, so all the python packages should be the latest version.

Fixed, thanks!

You should add the '--tags' flag to 'git describe'. As it is, it generates 'v1.2.85.gbf7eb0f' instead of '1.4.1.gbf7eb0f'.

Fixed, thanks!

Package fails to install with yaourt.
Starting pkgver()...
==> Updated version: goobook-git 1.4-1-gbf7eb0f.bf7eb0f-1
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, hyphens or whitespace.
My solution: append "| sed 's|-|.|g'" to last pkgver() line.
