Got a problem today with CMake Error at lib/xpp/CMakeLists.txt:70 (message): Missing required python module: xcbgen, even if I got xcb-proto.

While using pyenv, I resolved this problem by using: pyenv global system.

To solve the libjsoncpp issue you need to recompile polybar (particularly re-link). The easiest way to do that is to use a fresh clone of this AUR repo and run makepkg there. It is probably also possible with your AUR helper by telling it to remove existing build files (or deleting them yourself).

@victorz a clean installation will solve the issue. If it didn't for you, you likely reused an already compiled polybar executable when building the package.

For problems with conda, simply "conda deactivate", it will install. No need to purge path or remove anaconda.

@EagleByte This seems to be an arch issue:

Having an issue installing polybar today. It errors out with pkg_sresources.DistributionNotFound: The 'Jinja2<3.0,>=2.3' distribution was not found and is required by Sphinx

If you run into certifi errors updating, just install python-certifi (not sure why my system didn't do this on its own at some point)

To ensure a clean build use the --cleanbuild argument

@Swizz when you build using makepkg use these arguments

makepkg --syncdeps --rmdeps --clean --install --cleanbuild

or the short version

makepkg -srciC

@Swizz I run yay with --removemake

Each time I do an upgrade of polybar it comes with i3-wm as it is in the makedepends. However, it stay on my system and my DM wants to use it as WM. How you guys manage/remove this behavior ?

@banachtarski So there is definitely something weird with your python installation. Is `python3` actually using `/usr/bin/python3` or something else? You should probably also verify that `xcb-proto` is not corrupted: `pacman -Qk xcb-proto`

@patrick96 I get "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'xcbgen'

I see the comments saying people addressed it with "pyenv global system." Thing is, I don't even have or use pyenv. Everything should just be vanilla pacman packages.

Was able to install using a clean chroot. Not sure what caused Sphinx instl to corrupt, but I am back up an running. Thanks!

@banachtarski I'm guessing there is something wrong with you python or xcb-proto installation. What does the following command output: python3 -c "import re,xcbgen;print(re.compile('/xcbgen/*').sub('',xcbgen.__file__))"
