I uninstalled and reinstalled Pypar2, to force the error you are reporting. Indeed, has given the error "No module named ext"

I'm looking to see what the solution is, it seems that the origin of everything was removed PyXML from repositories.

By the way, for other occasions, do not hit the full error or lines of code here. Uiliza a service like pastebin and then you put the link. Read the use standards of AUR, not a whim of mine.

Not able to start the program after the last ( 18/10/2013) upgrade ( aura builder).
"ImportError: No module named ext" error message!

All the rest packs are installed, but pypar2 does not start.

What purpose PyXMLSec install? Not required for this package.

As says @berbae, xml is included in python, and reliance on 'PyXML' is no longer needed, it is obsolete and does not exist anymore in the repos.

Not able to build manually either-
" raise SystemExit, "PyXMLSec requires Python version 2.2 or above."
SyntaxError: invalid syntax"

There is a new PyXMLSec package ver. 3.0.1 from 07/2013, but he does not recognize the installed python 2 version and not build too.

Thank you for notifying me.

The 'pyxml' dependency needs to be removed, it is obsolete and doesn't exist anymore in the repos.
The package builds without it (xml included in python)

The problem seems to have gone away, even though a related bug-report[1] mentions a patch is required. Perhaps a change in python 2.7x solved the issue?

I'm also having this problem. Is there any fix, besides that ugly workaround?

The problem is with the prefs.xml file. If you comment out line 119 in which reads

The file will not get created. This means that preferences are not saved, but the program will run every time without crashing. It's a temporary work-around until someone figures out the problem.
