Upstream URL now redirects to

Should this be reflected in the PKGBUILD?

Can you add git as dependency so we can build in chroot.

betterlockscreen@.service must be updated or preferably betterlockscreen@.service from betterlockscreen-4.0.3.tar.gz must be used in the PKGBUILD. See issue #227 The type "forking" was changed to "simple".

I'm not sure if this is a problem specific to arch, but the systemd service has the following ExecStart line:

ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/betterlockscreen --lock

This is even outlined as a "hint" in the project page on GitHub. However, the PKGBUILD file installs the script to /usr/bin. I believe that at least one of these files should be edited to address this?

I am very sorry, gentlemen. I have been busy with work lately and just saw this information...

I just submitted the rebuild information in archlinuxcn/repo:

Lilac Bot will update the package to the latest version soon.

Is this package now orphaned. There have been several releases since February, but no updates. I am happy to take over maintaining the package if you no longer are able to.

danielgolf commented on 2021-05-29 18:32 (UTC)

I updated the PKGBUILD to version 3.1.1 and wrote a patch to get it running with recent changes of i3lock-color 2.13.c.3-1.

You can find the files under the following guist
