unable to install:

Package cairo-dock was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `cairo-dock.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'cairo-dock' found

Hello, I apology I was thinking to comment the package cairo-dock-plug-ins-extras-bzr.

luolimao commented on 2013-08-28 13:32

It's not a VCS package. If you want to make one, go ahead. I'm updating from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1, and that's all that I can tell that I need to do. The PKGBUILD in the link is for a BZR version of this package. If there is something else that I need to do for this version, you can comment here (I can't read French, sorry).

lesebas commented on 2013-08-28 10:16

The PKGBUILD is out of date as it don't manage the package version with the pkver function as recommended in VCS PKGBUILD Guideline (

Plus, you are using old libs which are not necessary so long and you did not take in charge the session management.

Please update or visit this following thread on the official website of cairo-dock :

Okay, thanks.

Actually, I finally heard back from the upstream devs, and I got a working solution. Fixed and uploaded.

luolimao commented on 2013-04-07 01:27

Go ahead and delete it; I'll re-upload it if I can get it to work in the future.

According to the Arch Packaging Standards, a package should not contain the /home directory.

If you can't found an another way, then I'll have to remove this package from AUR. You could report the problem to the upstream developers:

luolimao commented on 2013-03-26 19:27

Nope, I can't get around it; you have to use sudo in this case. For some reason, installing the plug-ins in /usr/share/cairo-dock/third-party/ doesn't work.
