Thank you, should be fixed now.

makepkg fails building this package, because the install commands in package() refer to different directories. ashwinkj's comment below shows the correct directories.


sed -i '25 s/$_pkgname/freedesktop/' PKGBUILD

In version awesome-freedesktop-git 105.6951b09-3, require("freedesktop") doesn't work anymore. I had to modify the lua install directory to be freedesktop instead of awesome-freedesktop to get it working.

package() {
    install -dm755 "$pkgdir/usr/share/lua/5.3/freedesktop/"
    install -m644 $_pkgname/{LICENSE,README.rst,*.lua} "$pkgdir/usr/share/lua/5.3/freedesktop"

Attention everyone: this package is updated to the new Awesome branch (4.x).

If you're using Community/awesome package, which is currently still at version 3.5.9, for the time being either switch to AUR/awesome-git, or install awesome-freedesktop from Git and revert to latest 3.5.x commit:

$ git clone ~/.config/awesome/freedesktop
$ cd ~/.config/awesome/freedesktop
$ git checkout 2c695a9 .
