@SpotlightKid: Thank you for explaining, that makes sense.

@m01: there is the theoretical possibility that someone installs this package under Python 3.7.0, in which case this patch would still be needed. Anyway, it doesn't do anything on other Python versions, and mu 1.1 is not far off, so I'll probably remove it then.

Is the diff still required? It looks like the upstream Python bug mentioned in the comment is marked as resolved.

@webmeister: all dependencies for a new version are now up-to-date in AUR. Let me know if I can help with a new package release.

Here's an updated PKGBUILD:

Please note that this relies on the following packages, which are currently out-of-date, to be updated:

  • python-pyqtchart
  • python-gpiozero

mu insists on pinning dependency versions in its, which is (besides being always bad) not working with the python-pyqt5 and python-qscintilla dependencies, because they are not installed with the necessary *-.egg-info directory, so the version checks fail when mu is started.

I worked around this with the following prepare function:

prepare() {
  cd "$srcdir/mu-$pkgver"
  # python-pyqt5 and python-qscintilla are not python-setuptools compatible
  # the dependencies are handled by the package
  sed -i -e "s/'pyqt5==[0-9.]*',//" -e "s/'qscintilla==[0-9.]*',//"

@seirl: 'qt5' is already an indirect dependency via 'python-pyqt5'.

@bakerman: The executable was renamed to 'mu-editor' by upstream in newer versions already.


  • Version 1.0.0 also depends on a lot more Python packages. See here I've added the missing ones to AUR. Unfortunately 'python-gpiozero' is still at version 1.4.0 but mu needs >= 1.4.1. I've flagged the 'python-gpiozero' package as out-of-date.
  • Dependeny 'python' is already covered by all the other 'python-*' dependencies.
  • Dependency 'python-pyqt5' is already covered by 'python-qscintilla-qt5'

It's missing a dependency to qt5.

This can't be installed with community/mu as /usr/bin/mu is installed by both. Can we install mu-editor here instead?
