  • Hey @astrolavos
    You have installed the library for Python 2 and Python 2 libraries don’t work with Python 3
    I don’t think there is a package on pacman for Python 3

    Try installing

    sudo pacman -S python-pip

    Then run

    python3 -m pip install pygame --user

    If you need more info you can go to pygame website

    Hope this helps

  • @pyUser Finaly … yeahhh this is the solution… thanks!!! 🙂
