Please use a build() array according to Python package guidelines:

build() {
    cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
    python setup.py build
}

package() {
    cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
    python setup.py install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1 --skip-build
}

It is unnecessary to change the permissions of the desktop file.

It's not necessary to include the following:

  • pyqt5-common as python-pyqt5 depends on it.
  • python-six as python-pyudev depends on it.
  • util-linux as its part of the base-devel group.

Issue is resolved, possibly. I mean, there is no config not defined when building package.

This package is broken by an upstream issue, for the time being please use multibootusb-git.

I have the same issue as @ganileni but was able to solve it.

I have a quite lean setup and installing the package extra/udisks2 fixed the error, so I guess that's a missing dependency?

I located the issue. The polkit file was pointing to the wrong location of the binary, causing it to crash. I just pushed a change to the PKGBUILD that corrects this.

The program is not launching for me, running multibootusb-pkexec on terminal I get the error:

Using python version 3.7.1 (default, Oct 22 2018, 10:41:28) [GCC 8.2.1 20180831] on platform Linux-4.19.6-1-MANJARO-x86_64-with-arch-Manjaro-Linux Could not find resource 'data/tools/gdisk/gdisk.exe'.

Hi.

After installing and starting it, I get this error:

"Could not find resource 'data/tools/gdisk/gdisk.exe'. Running multibootusb version 9.2.0 from installed system... Starting multibootusb GUI... QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root' qt.qpa.screen: QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display Could not connect to any X display. "

Thank You!

Sadly I have to disown this package as I don't have the time to keep updating it anymore. Please, forgive me if I have been absent so often, but my work consumes more and more of my time. Thanks and Best of luck to the next maintainer.

I get an error:

$ multibootusb
Using python version  3.6.6 (default, Jun 27 2018, 13:11:40) 
[GCC 8.1.1 20180531] on platform Linux-4.17.3-1-ARCH-x86_64-with-arch
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/multibootusb", line 187, in <module>
    if config.debug is True:
NameError: name 'config' is not defined

Apparently it's a known issue. https://github.com/mbusb/multibootusb/issues/253

The only way I found to make multibootusb work at the moment on arch is to use the devel branch of the repo:

$ git clone https://github.com/mbusb/multibootusb
$ cd multibootusb
$ git branch devel
$ git checkout devel
$ sudo python3 multibootusb

That's the way I run it. When I try to install syslinux onto a drive (or add an ISO), I get this same error:

https://github.com/mbusb/multibootusb/issues/336

With the git version I don't get any errors and it works just fine.
