sorry, completely forgot to check that. here it is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/nicotine”, line 38, in
File “/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pynicotine/”, line 250, in ApplyTranslation
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, ‘’)
File “/usr/lib/python3.8/”, line 608, in setlocale
return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

It’s an upstream issue that was already fixed in a recent commit. Install nicotine-plus-git from the AUR for now.

I’ll take a look when I get home from work.

In the meantime, please create a new topic in #support:aur since this is a separate issue.

I just discovered it has to do with the locale settings being broken with the update. It happened again.
Solved through other post. Can’t link it.

Sure you can:
