Re: [orca-list] Arch Linux Problems

Deedra or Chris, can you guys fcheck any more of this out on your
systems in the meantime today?

Hi Steve,
Deedra and I just got it running.  We re-installed everything from
[testing], and the error regarding the missing gi.repository.gio is
gone.  However, there is one further problem with the orca package in
[testing].  It mistakenly depends on python2-json-py, which is an
older JSON library for Python.
Orca uses the JSON implementation found in Python's standard library,
but this python2-json-py package shadows it.  I'd like to know how on
earth someone came up with that (mis)-dependency!
After you upgrade everything, do
pacman -Rdd python2-json-py
to get rid of it.  -Rdd tells pacman to ignore unsatisfied
dependencies.  After that, Orca should work.  pacman will try to install
that package next time you upgrade, so be careful.  I'm going to bitch
about this on the ArchLinux bug tracker, so it should get fixed soon.
