The issue that @billypilgrim pointer out is because python-solo request the Python package fido2 in version 0.8.1 (fido2~=0.8.1) not the newer 0.9 version.

I'm currently getting the following error every time I try to run the solo program:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/solo", line 5, in <module>
    from solo.cli import solo_cli
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/solo/cli/", line 17, in <module>

@Arlas Updated, thanks for the heads up. It looks like the new python-flit package in community does not install into /usr/bin.

@alium Upstream builds this package using flit (see the upstream Makefile). I understand that additional make dependencies are a concern, but I do not really have the desire or time to maintain a separate build process from upstream. If you have any particular suggestions for how I can better adhere to the Arch packaging guidelines without changing the build process, I'd be happy to adopt them.

hi, consider please switch to archlinux packaging standard, see

pkgdesc="Tools and Python library for SoloKeys."
license=('Apache' 'MIT')
depends=('python' 'python-click>=7.0' 'python-cryptography' 'python-ecdsa'
         'python-fido2' 'python-intelhex' 'python-pyserial' 'python-pyusb'
makedepends=('fakeroot' 'python-setuptools')

build() {
  cd $pkgname-$pkgver
  python build

package() {
  cd $pkgname-$pkgver
    python install --root="${pkgdir}" --optimize=1
  install -m755 -d "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
  install -m755  "${srcdir}"/solo "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"

you can upload solo script just here in AUR

You are using flit in a bash environment. But python-flit is installed in python environment and not in bash.

Can you replace flit build --format wheel with python -m flit build --format wheelmaybe? This worked for me

Would it be possible to add the changes of pull request #47 as a patch to this PKGBUILD until the issue with fido2 is resolved?

Updating to 0.0.20-1 results in the error message

  File "solo/", line 25, in <module>
    from fido2.utils import Timeout
ImportError: cannot import name 'Timeout' from 'fido2.utils' (/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/fido2/

This is an upstream issue: Here an open PR that should fix it:
