I did not notice a second desktop file in the /opt/../../ path until now. As it is so simple, I fixed now.

The easy solution is to change /opt/thefanclub/overgrive/overgrive-autostart.desktop with Exec=/opt/thefanclub/overgrive/venv/bin/python3 /opt/thefanclub/overgrive/overgrive or change it with the same content of usr/share/applications/overgrive.desktop

Hello, blackhole. I do not use KDE, so I do not know if it is something I should care about. From what I can see, this looks like a manually set autostart script, that uses the default python binary. As you can see in the shortcut (.desktop) file, I am using a virtual python environment to install some python dependencies not available in the repos. I did it not to put python-pip as a dependency and then install a bunch of outdated python packages system-wide that the user will never use. If you have any recommendations, leave it here, I will check it later. Although, I will not be able to 'fix' anything until next Saturday.

Nice application. I think that the overgrive-autostart (added to kde autostart) has some problems:

python3 /opt/thefanclub/overgrive/overgrive
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 57, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'apiclient
Where the standard shortcut overgrive is working fine:

[audiolinux@archlinux ~]$ /opt/thefanclub/overgrive/venv/bin/python3 /opt/thefanclub/overgrive/overgrive

I've exactly the same problem. Any solution ?

Not working anymore, unfortunately. Even changing md5sum on pkgbuild doesn't work. Using pacman -U on the given .tar.xz also doesn't work, pacman complains about missing metadata. Does anyone have a workaround?
