This fails to build as appimaged has been put into a separate repository:

Also, it might be a good suggestion to ship appimaged.service with this package, instead of generating it.

Is vim really needed, or is it just xxd that is needed?

building the package does not seem to work on trizen at all and using pacaur / makepgk it always fails at tests at 87%

For me the installation failed with the following message:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
  Could NOT find PkgConfig (missing: PKG_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE)

It seems that 'pkg-config' is a dependency that is not included in the dependency list.

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
