Dropped pyqt5-common. About SyntaxWarning - it was fixed in this commit: https://github.com/mbusb/multibootusb/commit/0b71b418293f46c05be78e1afe5efaa31de409f9, but stable version with this fix wasn't released. Use GUI and multibootusb-pkexec instead, or install multibootusb-git to retrieve the latest available version with fix.

you should drop pyqt5-common... resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... :: python-pyqt5 and pyqt5-common are in conflict. Remove pyqt5-common? [y/N]

The package "pyqt5-common" has been removed from the repos but it's required by this package, it should be removed.

Hello, this version version is incompatible with python 3.8.0 use multibootusb-git

/usr/bin/multibootusb:194: SyntaxWarning: "is not" with a literal. Did you mean "!="? if uninstall is True and config.usb_disk is not '':

@ptrxyz @freaz deleting /tmp/multibootusb.log also worked for me (thanks @freaz!), and for the same reason - initially running multibootusb without root: "In short it seems the first time I ran multibootusb without root it created a /tmp/multibootusb.log file. Then when running it as root when it tries to import the config file it for some reason can't because of incorrect permissions/ownership on that log file"

Just to be clear - I'll look into these errors. But the first and the last time I installed this package, it was installed correctly.

usr/include/c++/9.2.0/bits/fs_fwd.:39: Parse error at "std"

@ptrxyz - I got that error also. Tracked it down to actually another error which is ignored during module imports. In short it seems the first time I ran multibootusb without root it created a /tmp/multibootusb.log file. Then when running it as root when it tries to import the config file it for some reason can't because of incorrect permissions/ownership on that log file (and this error is ignored until the config variable is accessed). Anyhow, deleting /tmp/multibootusb.log and running as root worked for me.

When trying to install, this is what I get:

Using python version  3.7.4 (default, Oct  4 2019, 06:57:26) 
[GCC 9.2.0] on platform Linux-5.3.7-zen1-1-zen-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

I'm not sure what causes this issue, does anyone know?

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.
