I did have had some problems to install RPD on my uptodate gentoo machines, as I have shouted out here on the release message of 0.9.33
Here comes the solution:
- install rapid-photo-downloader in an virtual environiment, as described on Damon’s github
For me I have replaced myenv with ~/RPD…
I still ran into a problem and got this failure:
This program requires:
python3 variant of gobject introspection
Please install them using your distribution’s standard installation tools.
Actually I asked on #gentoo:libera.chat and finally this solution worked:
after the following step (from within Damon’s instruction, linked above):
I had to run (and it was just me, to use the pip and python from that venv):
~/RPD/bin/pip install pygobject
~/RPD/bin/python install.py --virtual-env deactivate
Now rapid-photo-downloader lives in ~/RPD/bin and works just fine.
One have to create a link or script or set $PATH for further convenience
@damonlynch no need to write anything to it, if you like or dislike, thumbs up or down is good enough (if you read it at all). Have a swift reqovery!
