This package fails to build since the latest commit. The icons were moved from src to the root of the repository.

@j1simon I try your PKGBUILD it works well but if I use -b option, the --dest is invalid, let's wait author to fix this bug

@Sherlock-Holo The developer of this theme/icon set is very fast ;-) and he has fixed the error in install script, now your PKGBUILD could be so simply like this:

pkgbase=canta-theme-git
_pkgname=canta-theme
pkgname=('canta-gtk-theme-git' 'canta-icon-theme-git')

    git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-\)g/r\1/;s/-/./g'
}

  cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}"
  mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes"
  ./install.sh --dest "${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes"
}

package_canta-icon-theme-git() {
    pkgdesc="Flat icons for Canta GTK theme"

    mkdir -p "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/icons/Canta
    cp "${srcdir}"/${_pkgname}/src/icons/Canta/* "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/icons/Canta -R
}

The background image in Nautilus, IMHO, is unnecessary and sometimes hinders the visibility of the content. I suppose that's precisely why the creator of this theme has made 2 installers: the main one without that image. In any case, if you want to install the image by default with this package, you should wait for developer to fix this error: https://github.com/vinceliuice/Canta-theme/issues/39

@Sherlock-Holo The folder structure should be (inside /usr/share/themes/):

Canta
Canta-compact
Canta-compact-square
Canta-dark
Canta-dark-compact
Canta-dark-compact-square
Canta-dark-square
Canta-light
Canta-light-compact
Canta-light-compact-square
Canta-light-square
Canta-square

One folder for variant. And inside of every variant folder must be these:

AUTHORS
COPYING
gnome-shell
gtk-2.0
gtk-3.0
gtk-assets
index.theme
metacity-1
unity
xfwm4

In your case, inside /usr/share/themes/ only there is the folder Canta.

But also the installation script is wrong: https://github.com/vinceliuice/Canta-theme/issues/38

When he fixes that error, the package step should be easy (the build step is unnecessary):

...
package_canta-gtk-theme-git() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}"
  mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes"
  ./install.sh --dest "${pkgdir}/usr/share/themes"
}
...

actually with my gnome-tweak-tools, I can see all canta theme such as canta-dark canta-light and others, don't you choose those? I can use them normally and pacman -Ql canta-gtk-theme-git can see like /usr/share/themes/Canta/metacity-1/build/Canta-square/metacity-1/build/Canta-square/unity/launcher_pip_btt_37.svg things

@allen2003 @Sherlock-Holo the Nautilus background image is optional. Canta has 2 installers: one with background image and another (the default) without it. Personally I prefer without image.

j1simon commented on 2018-09-25 16:01

This theme has several variants but this PKGBUILD only install one. If you see the install.sh script in github:

...
THEME_NAME=Canta
COLOR_VARIANTS=('' '-dark' '-light')
SIZE_VARIANTS=('' '-compact')
RADIUS_VARIANTS=('' '-square')
...

You should see the PKGBUILD of materia-theme-git: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/materia-theme-git/

Sherlock-Holo commented on 2018-09-19 08:29

@alien2003

it should be fixed now

alien2003 commented on 2018-09-19 08:12

This theme has such a beautiful Nautilus background. It is broken in latest update. You need to run " Install_with_background_img" instead of install.sh to make it work.

Please fix it
