Updated to 2020-12-R1 (I've subscribed to the github release page, so I should get notified on new releases from now on)

Release Notes:

Package Update Notes:

  • extern-packet_counter_max patch removed (thank you shaeferpp for the reminder)

  • python-qtpy added to opt-depends as ubertooth-specan-ui requires it

  • I don't know if the Christmas lights thing (ubertooth-util -x) works as it just exits for me and I'm not sure what it's supposed to do.

Remember update your ubertooth's firmware with one of the following (you may need sudo):

  • ubertooth-dfu -d /usr/share/ubertooth/ubertooth-one-firmware-bin/bluetooth_rxtx.dfu -r

  • ubertooth-dfu -d /usr/share/ubertooth/ubertooth-one-firmware-bin/bluetooth_rx_only.dfu -r

In December a new version of this library, 2020-12-R1, was released. As this release already contains the extern-packet_counter_max patch, this patch can be dropped when updating the PKGBUILD to this version. I managed to install the latest version using this PKGBUILD by updating pkgver, _pkgver and of course the sha256sums and removing the patch. These changes (and the new ubertooth firmware) worked for me.

I've replaced libusbx with libusb.

I also applied the patch from as the build was failing without it. Hopefully they release a new version soon.

Hey guys, sorry it took so long, but I've patched the PKGBUILD for python3 (thank you GI-Jack).

python3 port:

Please build using python3 as python2 is now depreciated. thanks

I don't know about what is broken in python2-pyside2, but whatever part ubertooth's GUI needs is still working just fine (as evident by ubertooth-specan-ui working just fine).

I'm not saying we shouldn't get rid of it, I just haven't had time to make a new pkgbuild to use python3 instead of 2 (which it seems to default to).

Building with Python 3 seems to work fine for me. Also, according to the python2-pyside2 deletion request, the package doesn't work.

I've moved python2-pyside2 to optdepends. I will need to play with the compilation a bit to get it working with python3. For now, I think the only thing that depends on the (now optional) python2-pyside2 is the GUI stuff (like ubertooth-specan-ui).

python2-pyside2 and its dep are being deleted. Please build using Python 3, and according to the previous comment, pyside2 should be an optdep.
