pysolfc command not found

Over the past few days I can no longer run the game pysolfc.

Having checked the Arch packages web site I've noticed that the app is deemed out of date as at 15 November 2019.

The app is installed but when running from the command line it states "command not found".  If it is installed, why can it not find the command? Does Arch / Artix prevent the app from running when classed as out of date?

Installed it out of curiosity, and I'm getting:
Code: [Select]
% pysol 
Traceback (most recent call last):

    from pysollib.main import main  # noqa: E402,I202

Which apparently is because python-3.8 has deprecated time.clock(). This has to be fixed upstream or you could try fixing it yourself by updating the clock function. I'm not sure though why your executable has vanished.

specifically:
/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pysollib/mfxutil.py
line: 146
change:
uclock = time.clock
to
uclock = time.perf_counter
works!
thanks for the hint , nous
(and the executable isn't missing, it's just not called pysolfc)

I was typing the wrong command.  I should have been typing pysol not pysolfc.

I fixed it by following instructions here

This was fixed in git master, and arch linux should use a downstream patch. It
sucks that python keeps breaking back compat but it could be much worse:
