@mikegb: Just like with all other Python AUR packages, you have to rebuild and reinstall the package after a major Python version jump, e.g. from 3.9 to 3.10!

Launchpad bug reported: OpenAstro no longer works after latest manjaro updates.

Error is: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 45, in <module> from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, dignities, swiss as ephemeris ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'openastromod'

I changed lines 43 and 44 in /usr/bin/openastro to python3.9 (from python3.5). I then get the following error, which still may be path related.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 45, in <module> from openastromod import zonetab, geoname, importfile, dignities, swiss as ephemeris File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/openastromod/", line 30, in <module> import swisseph as swe ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'swisseph'

@Morn thanks a lot! It works again without issues!

The problem was caused by pyswisseph introducing a breaking API change for the return value of "calc_ut()". It should be fixed now thanks to one more patch.

@ronaldoal It worked normally to me on manjaro for a long time until the upgrade of python

It doesn't matter the python update, rebuilding does not solve the issue. It is not working, wasn't already before the update. I think maybe it's something with the code itself, because I tried in ubuntu and fedora also with no success. And each time I try the error is different, some python code error.

It has to be rebuilt due to the upgrade of python 3.9 to python 3.10

Can't start this program. Last 3 lines from terminal:

File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 285, in init self.setLanguage(self.astrocfg['language']) KeyError: 'language'

I'm using Manjaro with polish language.

The sqlite problem is fixed now.

starting openastro /usr/bin/openastro fails here too:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 6205, in <module> db = openAstroSqlite() File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 246, in init self.cursor.execute(sql,("version",cfg.version)) File "/usr/bin/openastro", line 28, in <lambda> sqlite3.dbapi2.register_adapter(str, lambda s:s.decode('utf-8')) AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'decode'

although pyswisseph3 was reinstalled
