Installing on Arch-based distro

  • I'm trying to install f.lux on an Arch-based distro and it doesn't seem to work.
    I ran :

    python ./
    python2.7 ./ install

    But then when running fluxgui I get :

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/fluxgui", line 17, in <module>
        from fluxgui.fluxapp import main
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 3, in <module>
        from fluxgui import fluxcontroller, settings
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 1, in <module>
        from fluxgui import xfluxcontroller
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fluxgui/", line 1, in <module>
        import pexpect
    ImportError: No module named pexpect

  • Turns out it just had to do with my dependencies only being installed for python 3. I installed those for python 2 and now it works !
