Arch issues with Python update Adeskbar

With the new python updates in Arch there are some problems with adeskbar:
[quote][paul@archbang ~]$ adeskbar
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/adeskbar", line 30, in
import adesk.bar
File "/usr/share/adeskbar/adesk/bar.py", line 292
print '------------------------------------'

On [url]http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=26910[/url] the Aur page for adeskbar a solution is presented that doesn't work for me. After copying from pastebin the adapted PKGBUILD I get this error:" ERROR: PKGBUILD contains CRLF characters and cannot be sourced."

Solved this by not using geany but leafpad and cut and paste text there.

First uninstall old package.
Put the PKGBUILD and the package.install file in one folder.
Open terminal in that folder and do:
makepkg -sci PKGBUILD
This will build and install the new package.

I also had a problem with oblogout; solved that by
changing first line in usr/bin/oblogout from #!/usr/bin/python to #!/usr/bin/python2 .
