• gnome-vfs conflicting package


    Hi guys, I get this error when updating:

    https://i.imgsafe.org/835866509b.png

    gnome-vfs-perl comes from AUR (I think it’s a package dependency on some program I have installed).

    What should I remove? gnome-vfs-nosmb from Antergos repository or gnome-vfs-perl from AUR?

    Thank you.

  • Hi!

    gnome-vfs is from extra (which means it’s an Arch official package) whereas gnome-vfs-nosmb is from AUR (not official). My advice would be to always keep official packages over AUR packages, so no, don’t replace it.

    What do you get if you run sudo pacman -Syu ?

    I have found what needs gnome-vfs-perl: it’s shutter

    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/shutter/

    When I want to remore gnome-vfs-perl then it removes shutter too…

  • @ase11 Remove shutter. This app needs some upgrades to be used in rolling release oses (uses gtk2 and other older libraries).

    You should search another screenfetch app, if possible.

    Cheers!

  • Ok, can you recommend a good alternative? Thank you.

  • found myself and it’s already installed by default.

  • I am an antergos user. In my case, I wanted to keep shutter installed.

    In order to keep shutter, what I did was to remove gnome-vfs when asked about the conflict between gnome-vfs and gnome-vfs-nosmb.

    Note that gnome-vfs has recently been removed from the Arch Linux extra repository:
    https://www.archlinux.org/todo/phasing-out-old-gnome-libraries/

    See PhotonX’s comments here:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnome-vfs-perl
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnome-perl/

    PhotonX is the maintainer of the shutter aur package:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/shutter/

  • In order to keep shutter, what I did was to remove gnome-vfs when asked about the conflict between gnome-vfs and gnome-vfs-nosmb

    Yep, I didn’t know that gnome-vfs was being removed.

    Anyway my point stands, shutter is using old libraries, that’s why PhotonX has to maintain gnome-perl in AUR and ask for installing gnome-vfs-nosmb also from AUR.

    These are Gnome2 libraries… (deprecated since 2008!) it’s time to move on ;)

  • “It’s time to move on” - yes I agree … it’s just that for me, shutter works really well and I haven’t found anything better (yet).

    By the way - if you go ahead with this update and find that you can’t edit your screenshots any more, you need to install “perl-goo-canvas”.

    This is documented in the optdepends list here: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=shutter
