Does this fix the issue? Or should I change something in source code.

Thanks again for reporting. To note that it wasn't failing to start for me.

Line 32 of the pkgbuild should be

install -Dm644 images/sunflower.svg "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/python${_pyver}/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg

With the provided file, the svg file can't be found by the sunflower program.

I have fixed the pkgbuild copying a _pyver function from another pkgbuild

Good catch. I have exactly the same issue with RPM packaging where if I target path specifically for newer Python versions I'd be making the package incompatible with distributions with older versions and vice versa.

I've found the problem - the PKGBUILD contains the line:

install -Dm644 images/sunflower.svg "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg

At this point, Arch is on python3.9, not python3.8.

Ideally the install script should check what version of python is being used for the correct directory but not sure if it can do that.

It's possible this issue is due to Python's setup not copying the file correctly or at all. Could you try cloning latest version from repository and doing python3 build which is what pkgbuild is doing.

I get an error message:

gi.repository.GLib.Error: g-file-error-quark: Failed to open file “/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/images/sunflower.svg”: No such file or directory (4)

Looking further into it:

File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/sunflower/", line 136, in set_window_icon
window.set_icon_from_file(os.path.join(base_path, 'images', 'sunflower.svg'))

The resource location should not be pointing to /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/images/ because that is above the sunflower package directory.

There is no folder called 'images' in the package directory.
