Both the 'community' and 'mcomix-gtk3-git' have switched to the 'new' fork of mcomix3, but this package still follows the 'old' mcomix, so it seems to work without 'python-cairo'.

Note: the mcomix package in the "community" repo includes python-cairo in its list of dependencies; so, python-cairo probably should be added to the list of dependencies for this AUR package, too.

(If python-cairo is not installed, mcomix will fail to start up, throwing a "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cairo'" exception... or that's how it was for me when using the mcomix-gtk3-git fork, at least.)

The patch linked by @fuan_k seems to work. I've gone ahead and added it. Let me know if there are any issues.

Here is a patch that fixes some issues with the "Save As" dialog window in mcomix:

It has been tested with the current 1.3 master branch (commit r1494.0b5e6d4) and fixes the following:

"Save as" dialog remembers the last used directory, Option to auto-rename suggested filename in case it already exists in target directory, Adds checker buttons in preferences for auto-rename suggestion and remembering of last used directory.

Patch available from here:

Since mcomix made it's way to "community" repo updated and stable, I have little interest in further hacking around the PKGBUILD that is beyond my skills ^^

I disown, feel free to take over :)

You might want to update your PKGBUILD and mcomix.install:
- no point in installing mime/comicbook.schemas if comicthumb is not installed
- if you do install comicthumb, than you should install mime/comicthumb.thumbnailer (comicthumb has been updated and should work now)
- the python version has been fixed now, so the corresponding fix in build should be removed

See my version of PKGBUILD/mcomix.install here:

The github repository does not exist anymore. I think that this one is active

-- adding "git" as makedepends, thanks for report

Anonymous comment on 2014-06-26 11:13

what about "git" as an dependeny as this comes from github?
