Veusz depends on sip that has received a major update, apparently breaking it into several smaller tools. The package in the [extra] repository provides the new version, thus build fails.

To fix that manually install sip4. It'll provide the needed /usr/bin/sip for successful installation.

My problem was in this line:

  ln -s /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/PyQt5/bindings/ NEW/PyQt5

Manjaro is still using Python 3.8; after fixing, it compiles correct.

Recents update v3.3.1-1 fails on build():

I haven't used this application in a while, and now that I need it I get this when trying to run it from the command line:

singularity :: ~ % veusz                                                                                 
Traceback (most recent call last):

    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'veusz==3.1' distribution was not found and is required by the application

Any help greatly appreciated.

I couldn't build a package without a "sip" package from the official repo, maybe it should be added as the dependency ?

I no longer use this package. If anyone wants to pick maintenance, go on and have fun.

Veusz 2.2.2; python 3 and Qt5

mizuchi commented on 2017-09-28 16:07

Just replace 1.26.1 with number of the current version and update hash sum. The resulting package works well.

Veusz 2.0

Veusz has been updated to use Qt5 and PyQt5.

unlucu commented on 2017-07-20 07:31

Just for acknowledgement, if you exchange "python2" with "python" veusz runs using python3 instead of python2.
