Sorry, I forgot to remove that file.

It should work fine now.

I tried updating byobu from version 4.46-1 to the latest (5.0-1) just now but I get an error:

install: cannot stat `/tmp/yaourt-tmp-athma/aur-byobu/src/status': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

What can I do to solve this?

Installing screen-git from AUR solves the hardstatus color issue.

zorun commented on 2011-11-24 15:34

Err, upstream has disabled color notifications for everybody except debian and ubuntu, due to a bug in screen that is patched in debian/ubuntu.
This is dumb because it also disable color under tmux...

If you run into such an issue, change MONOCHROME to 0 in ".config/byobu/color" (or ".byobu/color" depending on your config)

Upgraded to 4.44.

This is a major upgrade, as tmux is now the default backend.
The notifications should also be much more hard-drive friendly, since the cache is now in /dev/shm.

See the post_install message for further informations.

As stated by the post-install advice, *check your config*! You should delete or move ~/.config/byobu/status (or whatever the path might be if you're not using XDG) as the format has changed.

Also, don't try to upgrade from inside byobu ;)

@jjj137: thanks for the tip, I hadn't tried to upgrade byobu from byobu ;)

4.20 is out, I'll keep the package up-to-date when I'm back from holidays.

Tip: Don't update this when byobu running, or byobu will crash and update will fail.

Looks like upstream is moving very fast...
They released 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 then 4.4 in only a couple of days.

I think I'll wait a few days before upgrading; there are a lot of new features, some of them untested.

Updated to 3.33

The PKGBUILD now makes use of the auto-tools stuff.
Since the locales are not being installed by a `make install', and since by installing them by hand, they don't seem to get used, I dropped them from the package.

In case someone was actually using the locales (you definitely have to tell me how you managed to get them working!), I'll put them back.
