[SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

I tried to do a full upgrade of my arch install and got this error returned to me.  I have searched through the forums and it seems to be a fairly new problem.  Has anyone had any success fixing it yet?

Dell Mini 10v

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

Isn't it because the libkeybinder packages have been removed from the AUR and added to [community]?

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

I had same problem when updating "kupfer".

yaourt -S kupfer --force

worked.

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

Please don't tell people to use "--force".  If it's use is required in this case please explain both why and why it is not dangerous to do so.  In almost all cases "--force" is a bad idea and should be discouraged.

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

"--force" is recommended in archwiki, under these circumstances:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … stem.22.21


Such an error usually concerns only one package and instead of manually renaming and later removing all the files that belong to the package in question, you can run pacman -S --force $package to force pacman to overwrite these files.

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

Same error for me, when upgrading terminator, wich depends on python2-keybinder2, which depends on libkeybinder2

Errors :

libkeybinder2 : /usr/include/keybinder.h
libkeybinder2 : /usr/lib/libkeybinder.so
libkeybinder2 : /usr/lib/libkeybinder.so.0 
libkeybinder2 : /usr/lib/pkgconfig/keybinder.pc

Files already exist !

Follow the link to archwiki in my post above (#5).

Read it & judge whether applicable to you.

Well, in my case, those files are owned by the package libkeybinder, and according to archwiki, I should fire a bug instead of using --force.
However, I'm not sure how to report a bug correctly and I don't want to mess up.      smile

Re: [SOLVED] libkeybinder2 Upgrade issues

As far as i understand, libkeybinder2 has replaced libkeybinder, so you should be ok to either use the rename or force option.

update to post:

sudo pacman -R $(pacman -Qqdt)

is now removing libkeybinder. This may solve your problem.

Actually, it is not removing libkeybinder here.  It seems that I explicitly installed the package "xfce4-volumed" from AUR depending on libkeybinder.
The latest version of xfce4-volumed depends on libkeybinder2 instead of libkeybinder, but somehow it didn't upgrade automatically.
Now I just removed them both manually and then installed the latest version, and everything is okay now. smile

Thanks!
