Hi, this package no longer installs.

@schaetzc You might have noticed several other packages from the official repos get reinstalled with the python update. These python-related packages were rebuilt with python 3.8 and had their pkgrel bumped. Users should check for any AUR packages built with the old python, e.g. with pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages, and reinstall them. N.B. yay should also offer to clean build, which will essentially remove the relevant cache before rebuilding.

Updating to python 3.8 broke inkslides for me. Running inkslides after the update resulted in

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/inkslides", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3251, in <module>
    def _initialize_master_working_set():
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'inkslides==2.1.0' distribution was not found and is required by the application

The problem seems to be caused by the switch from /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages (the place where the inkslide script is stored) to /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages (a new place where the script is missing).

I fixed the problem by uninstalling inkslides and installing it again. However, when using an AUR helper you have to make sure to do a clean build. I use yay and therefore ran

yay -R inkslides-git
rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/inkslides-git/
yay -S inkslides-git # see comments below to fix an unrelated error. For yay, use --editmenu to edit PKGBUILD

Thanks @schaetzc, I had the same error when rebuilding for python 3.8. The fix worked for me too.

makepkg failed with the following error:

==> ERROR: conflicts is not allowed to be empty.

I fixed the problem by removing the line conflicts=('') from PKGBUILD.

Let's move discussion to here:

Thank you @janoliver. There were no errors this time, but it didn't work.

$ inkslides foo.svg
Parsing foo.svg ...
Creating SVG slides ...
PDF should be up to date. Quitting ...

There was an empty directory created in the working directory named .inkslides-foo. I'm happy to post a bug report upstream if you prefer.

Hi, could you please re-install and try again? I have fixed the imports.

Hi, the package installs fine, but after running, it complains

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'inkscape'

Some missing dependency perhaps? Here is the full error log:

I deleted the directory and cloned a fresh copy. Things work as expected now. Must have been something strange cached somewhere. Thanks for your assistance!
