It would be nice if this package didn't enable powerline by default. I installed this just for tmux, but I get errors when I launch vim because powerline for vim is enabled by default. I use vim-airline instead, so I don't need powerline for vim. I'm not sure the best way to change the PKGBUILD for general use, though.

The build error has been fixed in the latest revision.

I was surprised. Taking a look at the PKGBUILD for vim (Which is the same as the one for vim, suprisingly: ) it sets the following:

--enable-pythoninterp \
--disable-python3interp \

I changed --disable there to --enable, built the package, and it worked. I have a custom PKGBUILD to do this now, but the AUR won't let me upload it because it is a bundle of packages.

@ndt: It's on the requirements, I think. You can, instead of compiling it yourself, just install gvim. It comes with the "huge" flag, which includes almost everything.

Do you have to compile Vim with python3 support for this to work in Vim? For me, Powerline for Vim crashed until I did that with this package.

I added some quick pull requests to further clean up the package function.

All the best,

The package has been updated to use the new VCS syntax. Let me know if you have any issues with the new PKGBUILD.

I've read the comment. I'll update it as soon as I have time to review and test the PKGBUILD.

Please upgrade your PKGBUILD according to @arielp hint.
