It would be nice to change the description and upstream URL.

I will update to the next beta release (1.99.2) when it is available. Because these fixes are required for proper installation:

Maybe it makes sense to upgrade to the new version (beta release v1.99.1)?

@olvar: You need to install pyGTK, too. Maybe pyGTK should also be listed in the dependencies..

I can install the package but I get an error when trying to use it: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/bin/pyspread", line 46, in <module> from sysvars import get_program_path File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyspread/src/", line 33, in <module> import pangocairo ImportError: No module named pangocairo</module></module>

Update to 1.1.1 and pkgbuild rework is now done. Note that wxpython still needs the patch to support recent versions of pycairo:

curl -o wx.patch
sudo patch -b /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wx-3.0-gtk3/wx/lib/ wx.patch

@alexander: Done. I list you as contributor with only the name now.

Can you please remove my Email-address from the PKGBUILD file for me. (I should have done it myself before I disowned the package, but I forgot).

Thank you

I have seen your forum thread( and you are exactly right, changing the version check fixes the problem. Did you already submit a patch or how do you want to proceed?
Now with this package i would like to use and maintain it, should we make a simple patched wxpython AUR package first?
And wxpython[community] should have python2-cairo as optdepend.

Maybe it would also be not too difficult to get pyspread with wxpython-phoenix-4.0 (where new development happens) working, currently this fails when trying to import wx.combo.

JenDahm, thank you for your input. You are right with the errors; they seem to be caused by some changes in the cairo package. Anyway, this pyspread package is outdated. Since I do not use the package anymore I will disown it. Feel free to adopt.

There are a couple comments I want to make about dependencies. First, I believe that the `cairo` dependency should be `pygtk` instead. `pygtk` depends on `python2-cairo` which depends on `cairo`, and pyspread wouldn't start up without that `pygtk`. Second, I believe pyspread also depends on `pango`. Again, it wouldn't start up without this package.

Finally, while pyspread now runs, it won't display anything in the grid. When run from the terminal, I get several errors that look like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyspread/src/gui/", line 293, in Draw
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyspread/src/gui/", line 248, in _get_cairo_bmp
context = wx.lib.wxcairo.ContextFromDC(mdc)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/lib/", line 137, in ContextFromDC
ctx = pycairoAPI.Context_FromContext(ctxptr, pycairoAPI.Context_Type, None)
AttributeError: 'Pycairo_CAPI' object has no attribute 'Context_FromContext'

I'm going to start a forum thread about this. I'm not sure what's going on.
