cmake is missing from the package dependencies, hence the build fails.

My internet connection was really messy the past days, but finally I got my hands on a more reliable connection. I was able to properly test and fix the build process. Also disabled the automatic activation of appimaged system service. Thanks to @ivanruvalcaba, @steadfasterX and the others that reported the issues and fixes.

By the way I disabled the tests that are run by the build and submitted a pull request to mainstream that fixes improper 'if' condition that always triggered the tests.

Please do not automagically start or enable user systemd services. Instead print a notice on installation. Archlinux users want to have control.

This did the trick for me:

I had the following error like EasyToRemember & jeancf already reported:

PKGBUILD: line 66: appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun: No such file or directory

The following change fixed it for me:

build() {
replaced this:

  appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n appimagetool.AppDir appimagetool
  appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n appimaged.AppDir appimaged

  build/out/appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n build/out/appimagetool.AppDir appimagetool
  build/out/appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n build/out/appimaged.AppDir appimaged

  # --> this seems to be more correct for the second one but it has crashed with
  # "no space left on device" while i had plenty of them:
  # build/out/appimaged.AppDir/AppRun -n appimaged.AppDir appimaged

after this it goes further but had give me the next error about AppRun.c is missing which I fixed in

package() {
  cp AppRun.c $pkgdir/usr/share/appimage/


  cp src/AppRun.c $pkgdir/usr/share/appimage/

Then I was able to install but i havent tested yet if the result is working fine :P EDIT: Confirmed to work now :) at least I was able to run the Emteria OS installer fine

why does this start and enable the daemon for all users by default?

mitras2 commented on 2017-12-28 02:27

I can confirm nimbusflow's problem. Same here and sadly no idea why. I can only say that one of my CPU-cores was up at 100% load for all the time of the test that did fail (and it did fail because of a timeout).

Getting this when installing via pacaur and pamac. Any clues as to why? Thanks in advance!

I am no big expert, but how is the following command expected to work when appimage is not yet installed?

# Generate appimage files

appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n appimagetool.AppDir appimagetool

appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun -n appimaged.AppDir appimaged

If it is meant to be a relative path, there should be "./appimagetool.AppDir/AppRun" instead, shouldn't it? (However, there is no AppRun in the $src_pkg folder anyway.)
