@vith: Thank you. That was the problem.

@Salzi: in pacman 5: "the ability to build a single package in a PKGBUILD has been removed"

Sounds like your AUR helper isn't up to date.

Can not update to the new version. Get the error:

makepkg: invalid option '--pkg'
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build bcompare.

I installed only bcompare without an optional package.

Updated to version 4.1.5-21031.

@vith: You should have kde4-config if you want to use bcompare-kde package. In that case, you should have kdelibs available, as shown in the next command:

[musikolo@MyPC ~]$ pacman -Qo /usr/bin/kde4-config
/usr/bin/kde4-config is owned by kdelibs 4.14.15-1

If you aren't interested in KDE at all, please just ignore the error altogether because the script it's assuming the file existence when checking KDE version. It seems to be a small bug, but nothing be worried about.

Please, let me know if anything else is needed.

Thanks for you feedback.

Seems to work fine but I saw this weird message when installing with `pacaur -S bcompare`. Is that expected?

==> Starting package_bcompare()... line 184: kde4-config: command not found
Please place the following in your .bashrc or .cshrc (etc.)
export PATH=/tmp/pacaurtmp-vith/bcompare/src/install/bin:$PATH

Updated to
- bcompare-gnome renamed as bcompare-nautilus
- bcompare-xfce renamed as bcompare-thunar
- added bcompare-nautilus and bcompare-mate packages
- yaourt issues should be gone (not tested though)

@Musikolo, @blueyed,

Please change Line 48 to

cd "bcompare-${pkgver}"

to enable yaourt style installation.

Thank you.

"bcompare-gnome" fails to install with "pacaur -S bcompare-gnome". This is likely true for all extra packages (see similar reports for yaourt):

==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
bcompare- ... Passed
==> Extracting sources...
-> Extracting bcompare- with bsdtar
==> Starting prepare()...
/tmp/pacaurtmp-daniel/bcompare/PKGBUILD: line 48: cd: bcompare-gnome- No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
