@somebody: You'll need to reboot after installing / uninstalling this package.

seems like the package doesn't uninstall correctly? if you uninstall, all AppImages seem to stop working

@darkhorse68 thank you

Would not update with paru. Used git clone & makepkg -si and it updated fine. Thanks for keeping this updated & available.

Recently, I was have trouble installing appimagelauncher and was getting the following error:

==> Starting prepare()...
Submodule 'lib/AppImageUpdate' ( registered for path 'lib/AppImageUpdate'
Submodule 'lib/libappimage' ( registered for path 'lib/libappimage'
Cloning into 
fatal: transport 'file' not allowed

turned out that the git update from 2.38.0 to 2.38.1 broke things, and the transport is disabled by default, and has to be updated manually with:

git config --global protocol.file.allow always

see for more info.

@Nosrep If you are using paru like me, that's normal. Because paru will treat any package which doesn't have a pinned version of git repo as devel package like pkgname-git, even there is no devel package suffix in its name. It will trigger a update once there is any update among its sources. As googletest updates frequently, paru will also report update of this package when there is a update of googletest.

Curently the solution is replacing paru with other AUR helper, or the maintainer change the PKGBUILD to stop updating submodule manually but use command like git submodule update --init --recursive to do the same thing.

There will may be a change of paru in the future, it will add an IgnoreDevel option in the config to let you tell paru which package(s) should not be treated as devel package.

does my aur helper always say to update this because googletest is in its sources? (idk how aur works) is it supposed to do that? bit annoying, none of my other aur packages do that

@dylanparry I got the same error. Your tip fixed it for me too.

For anyone who gets the same error as me (maybe it's just me? :D), I just deleted the appimagelauncher folder from yay's cache, and that did the trick. There's probably a nicer way of solving it though.
