Other solution is to install https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python37/ Or use downgrader to python version 3.7 + block package

(If it doesn't exist in 3.8)

sudo cp -r /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/mate* /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages

and

sudo pacman -S python-cairo

This should work. Requires python-cairo to function, must be in python3.8 site packages.

The Advanced MATE Menu does not start since I updated the packages on my system the last time. I get the following error:

Activating service name='org.mate.panel.applet.MateMenuAppletFactory' requested by ':1.12' (uid=1000 pid=1683 comm="mate-panel ")
org.mate.panel.applet.MateMenuAppletFactory[1606]: No module named 'mate_menu'
Activated service 'org.mate.panel.applet.MateMenuAppletFactory' failed: Process org.mate.panel.applet.MateMenuAppletFactory exited with status 1

I think it has to do with an update of Python 3 that has now the version 3.8. When I move the 'mate_menu' folder from /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages to /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages, starting the applet works again.

Does this package need an upgrade in order to work with the package upgrade of Python 3 in Arch Linux?

Has anyone else had problems with this for the last couple months?

Ever since updating from 19.04, it stopped functioning/showing the button. I got it working again by downgrading to that version, but since updating my system a week or so ago no version works now.

I have tested it on two separate computers plus a fresh arch + mate install in a VM.

To Monsieur, I experienced the same thing, but I was able to reorder favorites by editing the text config file in my home directory before my issue happened.

Edit: I tried cloning the git for it myself, then slapped the pkgbuild in the directory. It built all right and I have a package that is working now.

Is it normal that we can't setting the order of the favorites by dragging them in the menu like it works on Mint ?
