@MeanEYE I'm not a python programmer, but as I know shutil.copytree function can copy dir structure. Or maybe you should simply use a bash script instead to install things? Replacing if part to something like if should maybe help?
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/sunflower.svg should be ok in Arch too, but installs all images to /usr/share/sunflower/images which is not recognized by Arch.

Thanks for your hard work maintaining this great file manager. I hope I helped.

I had to install python-cairo to get it running.

@duht: Thanks for taking the time to package this. Unfortunately went through so many changes I can hardly follow it. The fact there's no definite guide online on how to properly make one is annoying in itself.

That said, I have fixed inclusion of pot and mo files as well as fixed the typo.

Regarding splash in Debian build file we put it in /usr/share/pixmaps/sunflower/splash.png while sunflower icon goes into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/sunflower.svg. Arch might be the same regarding this.

Am not entirely sure how to make copy directory structure so any suggestion is more than welcome.

@MeanEYE take look at package() section on my PKGBUILD posted below. It's based on your latest git. There is some bugs in
('share/sunflower/trasnaltions', list(str(i) for i in Path('translations/').rglob('*') if i.is_file())),
This line in your file has a typo 'trasnaltions' should be translations.
Additionally it copies only files without subfolders from 'translations' folder and as a result we get only one (the last one) *.po, *.mo and *.pot file.
In Arch translations should be in /usr/share/locale/[language]/LC_MESSAGES/\*.po.
'*.mo' and '*.pot' files are useless.
sunflower.png should be placed in /usr/share/pixmaps in Arch and I don't know where to place splash.png.

Yeah,I also get the same error as @bitwave. Thanks for working on this. Not sure what I'd do without sunflower

Just so you folks know, I am here if you need some additional help regarding packaging this. I don't have much experience with Arch, but I can modify the project to better suit this distribution.

@bitwave I didn't have any crash, however I've added the missing .svg. Also I've correct some dependcies

I'll be back at updating/maintaining pkgbuilds in 1 or 2 days

Maintainer: Please update this package to use a working PKGBUILD. I do not understand why you would take an orphanged package and not update it. Either update the package or let someone else do it. In the meantime I have updated sunflower-git with the appropriate fixes.
