udisks should be added as a dependency.

You Probably should remove the version number from the package name since the file now has version 1.2.1 in it.

@scar: it seems to be a missing dependency. I think the missing module is in PyGObject. I will check and add it to the dependency list.

@delmadord: mintstick is tool developed by the Linux Mint Team for their cinnamon desktop. You are missing a gtk3-theme (adwaita) which is standard for the cinnamon-desktop.

I didn't get that when I checked the dependencies. Sorry for that. This is my first package and I still have to learn a lot...

It fails to format on my machine (Manjaro x64 XFCE):

$ mintstick -m format

( Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:2:19: Theming engine 'adwaita' not found
File "/usr/lib/mintstick/", line 41
print "Geometry error - Can't create partition"
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

What am I missing there? It fails to run on my box.

# mintstick
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/mintstick/", line 11, in <module>
from gi.repository import GObject, Gio, Polkit, Gtk, GLib
ImportError: No module named gi.repository

Note: python3 gives an errormessage for mintstick 1.1.9. Thus, one line in the bash-script "mintstick" has to be changed from '$DIR/ "$@"' to 'python2 $DIR/ "$@"'. This will be done (using sed) in the PKGBUILD-function package().

If you are just using python2, maybe this line has to be changed back to '$DIR/ "$@"' after installation. You will find it in /usr/bin/.

All the best,
