Hello, @pablox !

Since the upstream URL is changed from to , though the old one would redirect to the new one, I think it's good to update the PKGBUILD and point to the new address. And it's time to submit your first commit since adopted.

Hope for your reply!

Yours sincerely!

¬_¬. You weren't showing status bar at all... this wasn't a python-powerline issue xD. Well, I'm glad you sort it out :)

Ok so after a lot of reading I worked it out.

I needed to add two lines to my vimrc
let $PYTHONPATH='/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages'
set laststatus=2

The last one set laststatus=2 is what actually makes powerline show up.

I'm using urxvt so I needed to install otf-inconsolata-powerline-git from the AUR and add the following line to my .Xdefaults.

urxvt*font: xft:Monospace:size=11,xft:Inconsolata for Powerline:pixelsize=20

When I type echo $PYTHONPATH its blank.
When I export PYTHONPATH='/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages' vim opens fine but no bar
I tried moving my .bashrc and .vimrc but still nothing. I've just rebuilt the package again and still doesnt work.

Am i missing a dependency or something? Would really like to get this to work.

Could it be that you have the $PYTHONPATH variable exported somewhere else, or that you have another python runtime installed?

@pablox Thanks that stopped the error but just get the default vim line at the bottom?

pablox commented on 2014-11-10 00:20

Add the following:

let $PYTHONPATH='/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages'

in your .vimrc file. That should do it.

Didnt work for me

>>> ~ vim .Xdefaults
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 9, in <module>
ImportError: No module named powerline.vim
An error occurred while importing powerline module.
This could be caused by invalid sys.path setting,
or by an incompatible Python version (powerline requires
Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.2 and later to work). Please consult
the troubleshooting section in the documentation for
possible solutions.
Unable to import powerline, is it installed?
Press ENTER or type command to continue

To use battery module, `upower' seems to be required.
Then I think optdepends should include `upower'.

There's been *a lot* of updates since the last PKGBUILD update. Please search the GitHub issue tracker at, and report any issues there as I'm not currently contributing to Powerline development. I think you have to update your config file, as it appears several backwards-incompatible changes have been introduced since the previous PKGBUILD update.

See and for similar issues. Also try running powerline-lint to debug your config files.
