Problem building on Fedora 20

Asked by Edward Diener on 2014-05-05

When I try to build menulibre on Fedora 20 I get:

python ./ install >menulibre.elog
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 184, in <module>
    cmdclass={'install': InstallAndUpdateDataDirectory}
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/DistUtilsExtra/", line 98, in setup

    __add_imports(imports, s, attrs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/DistUtilsExtra/", line 411, in __add_imports
    elif node.module and __external_mod(cur_module, node.module, attrs):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/DistUtilsExtra/", line 353, in __external_mod
    mod = __import__(cur_module + '.' + module)
  File "/home/fceldiener/Download/temp/menulibre-2.0.3/menulibre/", line 23, in <module>
    from menulibre import MenulibreApplication
  File "/home/fceldiener/Download/temp/menulibre-2.0.3/menulibre/", line 25, in <module>
    from . import MenuEditor, MenulibreXdg, XmlMenuElementTree, util
  File "/home/fceldiener/Download/temp/menulibre-2.0.3/menulibre/", line 55, in <module>
    class XmlMenuElement(Element):
TypeError: Error when calling the metaclass bases
    cannot create 'builtin_function_or_method' instances

Is there some Python package I need to install ?

Menulibre requires Python 3. Please try building with python3.

Can you help with this problem?
