:: installing libappindicator-gtk2 (12.10.0-14) breaks dependency 'libappindicator' required by lbry-app-bin
Error installing repo packages

What steps would you suggest to resolve this?

For all the package names that you see on the error message: check them with command

   yay -Si "packagename"

and remove those packages that you don’t need.
In this case the problem seems to come from the AUR package lbry-app-bin.

Thank you! Removing lbry-app-bin allowed the update to run… as I thought it might. However, now I can’t reinstall it.

[philo@Spooner Downloads]$ yay -S lbry-app-bin
==> Error: Could not find all required packages:
    libappindicator (Wanted by: lbry-app-bin)

I guess you need to check which apps need that lib (libappindicator), because that doesn’t seem to exist anymore. There’s only libappindicator-gtk2 and libappindicator-gtk3, and the latter probably is what you want to use.

EDIT: seems that lbry-app-bin is not up to date with the dependency libs. So you could file a report here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lbry-app-bin

It may be possible to modify the PKGBUILD file manually, but if you don’t feel like doing that, then simply report the issue.

EDIT2: Just modified the PKGBUILD and it seems to compile! So, I did the following:

yay -Ga lbry-app-bin  # fetches the PKGBUILD file
cd lbry-app-bin
nano PKGBUILD         # change: 'libappindicator' to 'libappindicator-gtk3' and save the file
makepkg -cf           # builds the package
# if build goes OK, then this installs the package:
sudo pacman -U lbry-app-bin-0.43.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

and it should be installed.

Today I have the same problem with gwe (pkgdesc=“A system utility for controlling NVIDIA GPUs”), thank you for pointing to libappindicator-gtk3,
in gwe build depends was libappindicator3. Maybe a typo from maintainer?

Anyway, I use pamac to build and it work :slight_smile:

Can you use this as a separate add on for Nvidia cards as i have Nvidia settings?

I test only for Librewish (include icons :wink: )


and saw this first time today :wink:

I am building a new KDE ISO for him, maybe I can test later this gwe :slight_smile:

I have the same GTX 1060 card. :wink:

I am ready :wink:
The gwe app is in the Packages-Desktop under ‘gaming tools’ for overclocking the GPU (Who needs it :wink: ).

For more information ask @Librewish at
