@anerandros The past days I was on a hurry, but I have time now, I can take maintainership of the package again and add the systemd integration support, I already have some ideas on how to enable the systemd service per user by using the postinstall hook and recursing the /home dir for the user accounts and enabling the service.

one more thing dude... the .SRCINFO needs to also have its version number bumped so that PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO are matching. Everything is working though but it rolls it all back at the very. That should be all :-)

Its quite bad though, package buildling-wise. Why'd they set makepkg to validate metadata as a final step, after all the time wasted cloing repos, preparing scripts, the build process etc etc... Its pretty lame to then notice the version mismatch and bail out on the whole thing. The Arch guys aren't stupid though, there's gotta be a sane reason...

I've updated the PKGBUILD with Ozmartian version.

One day, if I'll find the time, I would like to make a new PKGBUILD based on the OA comments on how to package a native version (with systemd integration and all)

amazing thanks. Unfortunately I do not have the time to follow this as intended, given that I'd use your PKGBUILD anyway: would you like to take over?

hey guys,

as has been already mentioned, the issue is simply due to the git repo being checked out to its default branch as set in GitHub by the repo owner. While this defaults to master, you can change the default at any time. So just add a "git checkout master" in the PKGBUILD on line 35 and run "makepkg -is" again... it should then work perfectly..

for those still having issues or too lazy to bother I've put my recent build of the package up on file share incase it helps some of you..

and just incase I made no sense, here is the working version of the PKGBUILD that worked for me..

I am also having the "CMake Error: The source directory "/home/austin/.cache/pacaur/appimage-git/src/AppImageKit" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt." issue.

Here is the full output:

@jgmdev thank you very kindly for maintaining this and being so open about it!

@all some things have changed since my last message, I won't have as much free time as before but I'll do my best to maintain this package. I plan to do some work on this on saturday. stay tuned.

jgmdev commented on 2017-01-04 01:55

@anerandros I disowned it so feel free to maintain it

cga commented on 2017-01-02 13:50


I was wondering if you wuold like to hand over the package.


maxxcan commented on 2016-12-29 13:14

I have the same error:

CMake Error: The source directory "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-maxxcan/aur-appimage-git/src/AppImageKit" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

Do Anyone could fix it??
