OS: Manjaro XFCE Stable branch
Catfish does not run, and when I run
catfish in the terminal, I get the following error message
Traceback (most recent call last):

A different issue was posted here.
Related Arch Bug: FS#71600 : [catfish] fails to launch
Workaround from the Arch bug tracker:
can be worked around by editing /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/catfish_lib/catfishconfig.py line 30 to say:
catfish_data_directory = "/usr/share/catfish’
Can this package be downgraded in the official repositories for the stable branch, because catfish is an important component of the XFCE desktop for file search?
I didnt receive an update
All mirrors are partially or fully out of date:
I received the update. Thanks
I have 4.16.1-1 and I still have the issue
editing the config file, catfish works in terminal and Thunar now, but doesn’t launch from (XFCE) applications menu
You need the version 4.16.1-1.0. Now it works for me, from the terminal, from thunar, and from whisker menu.
The config file was already edited in this version.
In case you still have not received this version as an update, wait for the mirrors to sync, or change your mirror.
really weird, as of now I can still only see 4.16.1-1
I’m on the stable-staging branch, I feel like some packages from stable don’t get released to the staging branch?
