Update to 4.8-final release from upstream. I have switched from the AUR python-pmw to the Pmw bundled with leo because the AUR python-pmw PKGBUILD was broken by the Arch update to python 3. The Pmw tests bundled with leo mostly fail, and so do the tests in the AUR python-pmw. This may be a reason to prefer the leo qt GUI, which runs by default. Note that leo is a large package with a long history, and many helper scripts, plugins, extensions, etc. I updated the main calling script from python to python2, but there are other places where "python" is hard-coded. If you encounter issues with some component of leo, one of the first things you should do is investigate whether another "#!/usr/bin/env python" needs to be changed to "#!/usr/bin/env python2".

Bumped the Arch version number for compatibility with the python 3 upgrade, thanks to Arch users hollunder and boon.

It works for me, thanks for your efforts!

OK, I suspect the PKGBUILD and/or installation, not an upstream issue. I want to focus on the Arch update from python 2 to python 3. I have not been able to take this step, so I need your help. Have you done a system update since 2010-10-18 so that all packages via pacman have been updated for python 3? Have you updated python-pmw from the AUR to 1.3.2-3? Try to start leo with the shell command:
python2 /opt/leo/

If you get errors, please add the errors to your pastebin. If it works, edit /opt/leo/ so that the first line is:
#!/usr/bin/env python2
and try to start leo with the shell command:

If this also works, then I will update the PKGBUILD to make that edit and upload as 4.7.1-2. If not, I will look at what you report from these trials. Thanks.
