Looks like QtWebKit is being phased out, the only solution is to create our own packages for pyside with QtWebKit.

I’ll try to make a bitmask-dev package later today, they’re on Qt5 so they should have this problem solved. It doesn’t look like they got VPN working yet though.

Hello there,

I just wanted to let you know that bitmask_client is not starting at all with the latest python-pyside-common, python-pyside and python2-pyside packages (1.2.4-5 and 1.2.4-6).
Fortunately, a downgrade to version 1.2.4-4 brings bitmask back to life.


@DoctorJellyface: Many thanks for maintaining this package.

Whops, sorry for the useless rebuild, had a bit a brainfart and promptly lost internet connection afterwards so I couldn’t reverse it.

bitmask-dev doesn't have support for VPN yet, I won't be replacing this until it does. I will make a seperate bitmask-dev package soonish to see where things are at.

Will this be replaced by bitmask-dev (https://github.com/leapcode/bitmask-dev) soon? That page says that bitmask_client has been deprecated.

Encrypted mail, used by mail.bitmask.net, needs gnupg1 to work. Please add it to dependencies.

the bitmask-gui needs qtwebkit. otherwise it tries to start but exits shortly after, because some qtwebkit stuff is missing.
installing qtwebkit from the official repositories solved this.

@mesmer oh, I didn't realise there was a exacutable called 'bitmask_cli'. OK I see now that it needs it, but I still can't find the official list of deps for it and the missing core is troubling me. You can see it in the tree but it isn't included in the tarball...

@DoctorJellyface the colorama is only for bismask_cli
the cli have 2 erros,
1 is the import of colorama(the bitmask uses this module), fix by the aur python2-colorama package
2 - the error in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/leap/bitmask/cli/bitmask_cli.py that dont exist leap.bitmask.core, so just importleap.bitmask and the cli will run smooth

the bitmask itself dont need colorama, just the cli

@mesmer python2-secretstorage should be already satisfied, I added openvpn (thanks! I already had it installed and they didn't list it anywhere so I missed it) but I can't reproduce your colorama error - bitmask explicitly wants coloredlogs and installing colorama doesn't seem to make a difference.
