Thank you very much for pointing this out, I changed the post_install to simple inform the user to source /etc/profile on its own.

That install scripts run as root isn't the problem – the problem is that environment doesn't magically propagate 'upwards'. You have something like this:

bash (user)
└─makepkg -i
··└─sudo pacman…
····└─pacman -U android-etc.pkg.tar.xz
······└─sh -c ". /tmp/pacman/android-etc.install && post_install"

Changing PATH from post_install only affects that last 'sh' process, not any 'above' processes.

Don't add `source` commands to install scripts. Install scripts are run as root and a `source` command in these scripts does not make sense. And I don't think PKGBUILD can change users' environment. What *.install should do is just asking users to relogin or reopen the terminal, just like what android-sdk does. [1]

The PKGBUILD should run:

source /etc/profile.d/
source /etc/profile.d/android-sdk-platform-tools.csh

That should allow you to run adb immediately after install. Otherwise, you would just have to open a new terminal.

what do you mean with not able to run adb?
Can you provide some logging data?

physicalit commented on 2016-03-13 11:21

not being able to run "adb" after install should be considered a real bug for this package.

works just fine changing the line arch=x86_64 to arch=i686. since this is a 32Bit machine, other than that, all is well! and adb works as well here.

This is a problem with the default "filesystem 2015.09-1" package, where "/etc/profile" sets "/usr/bin" in PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin" *before* including from "/etc/profile.d/". You can edit /etc/profile, removing "/usr/bin", and then, *after* "# Load profiles..." add
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin

It seems a bit odd though, having the overlap with the community/android-tools package, and installing android-sdk-platform-tools in /opt.

Thank you for your package.
I just installed it but I was a little bit disturbed right after because the command `adb` wasn't available.
I had to recheck the PKGBUILD to see what was done exactly.

Wouldn't it be useful to reload /etc/profile at the end of the PKGBUILD or redefining the PATH ?

heyho :),

please add arch=('i686')
i test it out it seems to work just fine on my machine. no reason for exclution for now.
