Sorry. I don't know how I missed adding the patch to the source array. It should be good now. Still new to all of this...

ValHue commented on 2020-02-02 11:07

Here the affected part of the PKGBUILD:


build() {
    cd "$srcdir/PFS-$pkgver"
    python build

package () {
    cd "$srcdir/PFS-$pkgver"
    patch photofilmstrip/action/ ../ActionI18N.patch

You also have to correct the path to the patch.

The compilation throws an error:

patch: **** Can't open patch file ../../ActionI18N.patch : No such file or directory

It is impossible to compile it, you need to add the patch to the sources to download it.

If you don't, how do you find it?

I do not explain how some have managed to compile it, missing a file. :(

@joe1984 Sweet, just checked on my machine and it works just fine! Thank you!

This package is now fixed and updated. Let me know if there are any issues.

I'm getting this crash with the last 2 updates. And yes, my PKGBUILD looks identical to yours, and is using python 3. The program appears to work until you try to exit, in which case, it crashed with this error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/photofilmstrip/gui/", line 224, in OnClose if self.ClosePage(idx): File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/photofilmstrip/gui/", line 344, in ClosePage page.Close() File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/photofilmstrip/gui/", line 642, in Close self.imgProxyLeft.RemoveObserver(self.bitmapLeft) File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/photofilmstrip/lib/common/", line 22, in RemoveObserver self.__observers.remove(observer) ValueError: list.remove(x): x not in list

I have to force close it. Are you not getting this error?

It works for me with this modified PKGBUILD. Attention to the python version, now use python 3

What errors are you seeing? I know there are some warnings, which are fixed in the new version, but I don't want to upload it yet, as it has a very serious bug that causes crashes.

EgLe commented on 2018-09-23 10:46

Hmm, this package is "Out of date" :-(

Compile with errors, not working and the new Version is 3.5.1

joe1984 commented on 2018-03-12 23:31

This package doesn't appear to be out of date. A comment on upsteam's homepage indicating that a newer version is published might be misleading, as I wasn't able to find a download of a newer version, so I'm un-flagging this.
