Please do not flag this package out-of-date unless it fails to build due to upstream changes.

Hi, I have a suggestion regarding the PKGBUILD file: Instead of using make to build and install use cmake commands. This will ensure that this package can be built with other cmake generators. I created a diff file for this:

@alerque that's awesome news

I just moved lua-lgi to [community]. That or lua-lgi-git from here on the AUR both seem to work fine with this awesome-git build as of now.

If anybody wants to contribute a patch to backport the Lua 5.4 stuff to Awesome 4.3 so we can get it in official packages before the upstream gets around to a release I'm open to submissions.

Hopefully lua-lgi will be coming to official repos soon...the last tag seems to be patchable to work with Lua 5.4 but I keep coming up with new issues. If I can get it to work then the packaged awesome release should be able to switch to 5.4 too.

@oncomouse You're right. I can build with aurutils but not makepkg alone. I guess there's always uninstall, build, install.

oncomouse commented on 2022-02-03 15:36 (UTC)

@Kritiqual the trick to getting this to work is to uninstall awesome-git, uninstall lua53-lgi, then reinstall awesome-git. That worked for me.

@suffer runningmakepkg -src with awesome-git yields the error that dependency lua-lgi is missing, even if I run makepkg -src first with lua-lgi-git.

@Kritiqual All fine here. Try building both (lua-lgi-git and awesome-git) first separately with makepkg -src. Then install together with pacman -U. This will avoid the conflict since you are providing both together.

For the new version (4.3.1347 - too long), it requires lua-lgi-git, but the old version requires lua53-lgi. If I upgrade awesome, it told me that lua-lgi-git is in conflict with lua53-lgi, and it also ask me to remove conflicting package. I chose either "y" or "n", it will cancel the process Edit: I dropped into another tty, uninstall the current version, and rebuild it, lol
