Could you try uninstalling the package first? I can't tell whats going on here.

I rebuilt it in a clean chroot and reinstalled it. I am still getting an error despite it using python3:

$ quickswitch

    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'quickswitch-i3==2.7.0' distribution was not found and is required by the application

Also my system is fully up to date.

@alaskanarcher: this should be running with python 3, not python 2. Did you try reinstalling?

I have uploaded a version based on the former original package from the community repos.

@languitar: If you need a starting point, you could use this one that I recently created. Should work as is: https://pastr.io/view/rt05s5

@PythonNut: fun thing is that python-i3-py was removed from the repositories with something like "moving to AUR". Unfortunately, it never ended up here. I probably have to take care of this myself.

PythonNut commented on 2019-10-26 16:19

Dependency python-i3-py no longer exists

languitar commented on 2017-03-21 09:51

Please try again. I have added setuptools as an explicit dependency.

Hi!
I get this error when installing this package

==> Starting package()...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 24, in <module>
from setuptools import setup
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'setuptools'

Please, add python-setuptools as makedependencies.
