Please remember, that this package uses DKMS for building the kernel module and as such requires the kernel headers for your kernel installed. See also

Another manual step that needs to be taken is adding your user to the plugdev group, e.g. using the command sudo gpasswd -a $USER plugdev.

This package has 1 AUR-only dependency, python-notify2 which you might need to install manually as AUR helpers often have problems with this package.

@jahway603 I've only added the sanity check to the PKGBUILD so people stop building this package with a "broken" Python setup. The message already mentions "[..] or point your PATH variable to prefer /usr/bin/ temporarily." Would you be happy with explicitly adding the command "export PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH" to the message? And no I won't add workarounds to fix broken build environments.

Currently on 3.0.1-1 and unable to upgrade to the updated 3.1.0-1 version with the same "python path error". It was successful when I tried what @testbird71 suggested. @z3ntu, can you please add the fix into the PKGBUILD so that it will work for everyone? Thanks.

type in your terminal 1. export PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH 2. yay -Syu

ERROR: Your 'python3' does not point to /usr/bin/python3 but to /bin/python3, likely a custom environment like anaconda. Please build this package in a clean chroot (e.g. with or point your PATH variable to prefer /usr/bin/ temporarily. ==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in prepare().

@whynothugo thank you :)

@YoFreakinLo Yes, that's completely unrelated here. This is discussion for the openrazer package.

You're getting error download other packages from the Manjaro repositories. Apparently either mirrors or your local package db is out of date. Best to ask on Manjaro's forums or IRC.

@Icy_Thought Just a note on that, if you have anaconda running by default, this currently won't fix the issue since they are still on python 3.8.2. If you deactivate the environment with conda deactivate, then rebuild, that will fix the issue.

For anyone greeted with ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'openrazer_daemon' (when executing openrazer-daemon) or Exception: No module named 'openrazer' (when executing polychromatic-controller), execute the following command in your preferred terminal emulator: pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.8/ | paru -S --rebuild - to rebuild the packages with Python > 3.9.

@xrva Then install and not this package.

@WhyNotHugo Well, it doesn't recognise my mouse which is in the supported list, the only thing i can assume is it is outdated. Because on ubuntu, it works flawlessly on the daily/dev version :) and it should be supported in the release too.
