[SOLVED] Autotiling stopped working since last update?

Post by Sincide »

Hey,

Seems as autotiling has stopped working since i upgraded yesterday as the OS wanted me to do, hereś the error logs:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/autotiling", line 33, in <module>
sys.exit(load_entry_point('autotiling==1.1', 'console_scripts', 'autotiling')())
File "/usr/bin/autotiling", line 22, in importlib_load_entry_point
for entry_point in distribution(dist_name).entry_points
File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/metadata.py", line 524, in distribution
return Distribution.from_name(distribution_name)
File "/usr/lib/python3.9/importlib/metadata.py", line 187, in from_name
raise PackageNotFoundError(name)
importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: autotiling

Do anyone know whats going on?

See the message on Facebook, Twitter, Discord and Telegram.

Python changed its version from 3.8 to 3.9.
See the lines in your error message. This will happen again. Version numbering!!
If you know then you do not need to be worried.

That means that any application that needs python is pointing to a directory that does no longer exist.

So you need to rebuild the package.

Option 1 : ArcoLinux did it for your - our repositories

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Rs autotiling

Code: Select all

update

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S autotiling
(say Y to remove what you have)

Option 2 : AUR maintainer changed the version

Code: Select all

upall
Option 3 : AUR maintainer did not change the version

If AUR maintainer does not change the version in his pkgbuild - upall will not work.

yay -S package

Choose the number from AUR
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
