The sabnzbd 3.0.0 release is python3, yay! I've also moved the install from /opt to /usr/lib/sabnzbd and /var/lib/sabnzbd. The .install file should move things around as needed, but please post if it doesn't.

@ fryfrog Thanks for the hint. It works like a charm.

In case others want to do the same: the sabnzbd-desktop package runs the application as local user. This means the config folder changes from /var/lib/sabnzbd to ~-/sabnzbd.ini (which is also mentioned in the package comments).

@andy_0: Does the sabnzbd-desktop package achieve what you want?

I just updated sabnzbd from v2.x to 3.1.x. Before I was running sabnzbd as a local user whenever I executed the application manually or by providing a .nzb file to I just tried to do the same with sabnzbd running as a service which does not work.

So I download a .nzb file (or usually directly "open" them in the browser) and configured the system (kde) to launch .nzb files with /usr/lib/sabnzbd/ The script is executed (one can see in the task bar) but the file is not added to the download queue.

Any advice on how to proceed?

@fryfrog yes that was the problem. thanks for the tip.

@narf: Your service file is probably in /etc which overrides the package version in /usr. Move it somewhere else so you have it if you need it, that way the package version will be used. Don't forget to daemon-reload.

For some reason the sabnzbd.service didnt get updated for me when upgrading to 3.x . Tried disabling and re-enabling the service and reinstalling the package but no luck. the service file still points to the old /opt installation. Any suggestions?

It's now in [extra]:

Maybe you just need to refresh your pacman db.

Was unable to build this today, as one of the AUR targets no longer exists.

Error: target not found "python-notify2"

Apologies for erroneously flagging this as out of date. In spite of being up to date, the UI was still saying it was out of date. A restart of the service and hard reload of the web UI cleared the notification.

@bobpaul: Glad to hear you got it sorted out. Any idea why your sabnzbd.ini was also in /opt/sabnzbd/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini? Your log spew also made me realize I'd missed a "Moved" to "Copied" text fixing.

I think maybe I could account for the "[ALPM] warning: /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini saved as /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini.pacsave" :|
