makepkg fails with "==> ERROR: license should be an array"

aericson commented on 2015-07-11 21:42

Migrated the wrong version to AUR4, fixed.

artafinde commented on 2015-07-11 12:41

md5 is still wrong.

aericson commented on 2015-05-28 13:23

Fixed, thanks

for me 1.7.3.zip md5sum is 89e1e830cb9b10ee29bb561ad3c3cde9

Yep, thats the easier setup. Check the man page for aarchup. Wiki is for the old archup. Would be nice if someone could create a page for it. But it's not really a priority. Man page is the most updated doc.

UncleSlug commented on 2015-03-19 01:20

Right i think i got it after tearing some hair out. Edit /etc/systemd/system/aarchup.timer to set the interval. systemctl enable aarchup.timer this periodically runs aarchup.service which runs the noxaarchup.sh script?

UncleSlug commented on 2015-03-19 01:07

The wiki for archup (and sort of aarchup) is horribly out of date. Perhaps someone who knows how this is supposed to be set up and work could update it?

aericson commented on 2015-02-02 07:00

@nbvcxz: Thanks

@Br1: seems fine here, could you try to download the PKGBUILD again?

The display script works now like charm :) But you probably forgot to add pacman -Sy to synchronize pacman databases

@nbvcxz: could you review this please? https://gist.github.com/aericson/e18c6e83a0c4a4b32d3f

aarchup 1.7.0 introduces systemd timer ans new script noxaarchup.sh to . but it sucks for me because in fact it uses gconf (I don't want it). The solution is simple - just change noxaarchup.sh:
call_aarchup(){
dbus=$(grep -z DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS /proc/self/environ | sed 's/DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=//')
user=$(grep -m 1 -z USER /proc/self/environ | sed 's/USER=//')
dply=$(grep -z DISPLAY /proc/self/environ | sed 's/DISPLAY=//')
sudo -u $user sh -c "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=\"$dbus\" DISPLAY=\"$dply\" /usr/bin/aarchup"
}

@dape I will unflag as out-of-date as it's up to date. If you have a bug report please post it at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119129 instead of marking it as out-of-date.

Thanks

@qvamatel just use the --loop-time mode instead of with a cronjob, it's easier to setup

qvamatel commented on 2014-04-01 16:13

Hello!
Hourly synchronization is not work with chronjob in kde desktop.
I see the /etc/cron.hourly/aarchup file and modify the next row:
su - $arch_user -c "XAUTHORITY=/home/$arch_user/.Xauthority DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/aarchup --uid $(id -u $arch_user) --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg"
to:
su $arch_user -c "XAUTHORITY=/home/$arch_user/.Xauthority DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/aarchup --uid $(id -u $arch_user) --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg"
I removed the fourth character `-`.
If I run this command in terminal (with root) then work aarchup and display the update notification. :)
If cronjob run this command in /etc/cron.hourly/aarchup file then not work. :(

Why?

RaphaelRochet commented on 2013-09-26 20:35

Hi, I got it to work with crontab and gnome-shell/gdm .
Details here : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1329897#p1329897
In short, it was missing DBUS env.

aericson commented on 2013-09-11 17:34

will update it soon. Thanks!

Anonymous comment on 2013-09-07 14:41

note: aarchup cronjob was fixed for me by renaming
"aarchup.sh" located in "/etc/cron.hourly/" to just "aarchup".
see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cronie#run-parts_issue
maybe it's good to adjust the example/doc in the package.

thanks!

@amielke

we are all having troubles to make it work at the crontab, if you could let us know how you did it at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119129&p=3 ?

amielke commented on 2013-05-07 12:32

To run this Script under Gnome3, gdm you need to make the following change in /etc/cron.hourly/cronhourly.sh

comment out the line:
# su - $ arch_user-c "XAUTHORITY = / home / $ arch_user / .Xauthority DISPLAY =: 0.0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo . svg "
# IF YOU USE THE followin uncomment GDM PLEASE COMMENT AND THE ABOVE
# su - $ arch_user-c "XAUTHORITY = $ (/ usr / bin / find / var / run / gdm-path" $ {*} * arch_user / database ") DISPLAY =: 0.0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo.svg "

Add the line
DISPLAY =: 0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo.svg

@cvillelk somehow I didn't get notified when you posted that ; /
anyway, fixed it, better late than never.
Thanks : )

cvillelk commented on 2012-01-22 21:43

The PKGBUILD didnt work using an AUR helper (Packer).

==> ERROR: install file (('aarchup.install')) does not exist.
The build failed.

To fix this, I had to change:

install=('aarchup.install') needs to be install=$pkgname.install

I have replied your forum post at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=985452#p985452

it does not work for me, tried launching aarchupstartup.sh but gives me this:
[code](process:1670): libnotify-CRITICAL **: notify_notification_show: assertion `error == NULL || *error == NULL' failed[/code]
