That works. If 'alice' is automatically added to the 'provides', then I can just add 'alice' to the 'provides' for Alice3 and it should work.

Updated, thank you for the tips, it should work as intended now. According to the wiki pkgname is automatically added to provides=(), so perhaps it'd be easier to use 'alice3' instead of 'alice2', let me know though and I will gladly update it, if necessary.

macxcool commented on 2015-04-28 11:07

Also, could you put in a provides=alice for both Alice2 and Alice3 (perhaps this package should be called Alice2. That way I can package the Sounds from for either or both.

Also, for Java stuff, you should check to see if it works equally well with Java 8. Java 8 provides java-runtime-environment, but some Java stuff doesn't work properly.

bin32 and lib32 are for 32-bit software on 64-bit OS. Won't work on i686. You might have to do an 'if' checking for architechture for the 'depends'.
Thanks for the PKGBUILD meZee. I didn't mean to rush you, I was just wondering what was up ;-)

Updated, let me know if there are any issues, you should be able to run it as a normal user, without sudo.

Just adopted this, I do plan on updating it, just haven't had a ton of time.

macxcool commented on 2015-04-27 18:56

meZee. Are you updating this anymore?
2.4.2 is now the current version. Please disown if you aren't working on it.

I've got a new 2.4.1 source package at:

If this works for people (I've made some changes), I'll adopt.

fails on x86_64, it looks like some kind of ogl binary capability issue.

What about Alice 2.2? Has it been tried?

It seems /usr/bin/alice got HTML garbage when it was saved. Please remove HTML markup and leave only the bash script.

Integrity checks.

I am a robot. It is recommended to keep files in $pkgname/, instead of deep nesting. Suggestion: use "makepkg --source". This robot will not bother you again.

Integrity checks are missing.
