I disowned the package since I don't have time to keep track of the changes been done on the appimage repositories, also i'm not currently making use of this packaging software. So anyone feel free to maintain it.

I get the following issues:

same problem than carstene1ns, '''cp: impossible d'évaluer 'resources/usr/share/metainfo/appimaged.appdata.xml': Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type'''

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.
