I would recommend waiting for a bit with this release. We did fix number of issues, but feature parity is not there yet. It will be soon.

Your PKGBUILD does not work for me. And I think we should wait to update, this because the new version is not yet stable.

Hey @boenki. The package has been out of date for a bit. Do you need help with maintaining it?

pkgdesc="Small and highly customizable twin-panel file manager for Linux with support for plugins."
depends=('desktop-file-utils' 'gtk3' 'librsvg' 'python-chardet' 'python-gobject')
optdepends=('vte: integrated vte-based terminal'
            'mutagen: audio-metadata support'
            'gvfs: mount-management')

package() {
  cd "Sunflower"
  python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1

Am preparing for a 0.4 release as we speak and there's need to update this package. Namely Sunflower 0.4 now depends on GTK3, GObject Introspection (python3-gi), character detection module (python3-chardet).

In addition to that, Sunflower is now started as a Python3 module. Shell script in dist/sunflower has been replaced with a python file which runs this module.

These changes should be the only ones that are "breaking" so to speak. Dependencies like pygtk, python2-dbus, python2-gnomekeyring, python2-notify are no longer needed. We use everything through GObject Introspection.

Thank you once again for helping maintain Sunflower for Arch. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

@ulukyn: thanks, I updated the lauchner.

The desktop-file is taken from upstream, so you might want to file a bug here:

@boenki: The "sunflower" script on the snapshot don't start with any arguments.
I have modified the file "/usr/bin/sunflower" to :
> #!/bin/bash
> exec python2 /usr/share/sunflower/ $*

Another suggestion, the /usr/share/application/sunflower.desktop have the line:
> Exec=sunflower %U
But sunflower need -l or -r argument to open an URI. I have changed that by:
> Exec=sunflower -l %U

dependency required gnome-icon-theme. Not enough hicolor-icon-theme

MeanEYE commented on 2014-08-29 08:47

Apparently librsvg is also required. Most systems get this library pre-installed. If absent GLib just ignores it and throws an error when we try to set window icon.

If you wish. Without it Sunflower doesn't accept command line parameters, but it's not required.
