/etc/udev/rules.d/50-companion.rules:31 Unknown group 'plugdev', ignoring.

plugdev is Ubuntu smell and does not exist in Arch Linux. Since you set mode to 666, the devices are accessible by everyone anyway... Definitely an upstream bug since you removed 50-companion.rules. But you could do some patch magic for the next release :-)

Edit: Created upstream issue:

I've been able to build this version with Python 3.10 but I had to disable the seervision-suite module.

I added the following line in prepare(), just after the cd:

sed -i '/companion-module-seervision-suite/d' package.json

What Python version should I use? I tried python36, python37, and python39, but the install breaks on the same lines you mentioned:

error /home/mimoralea/.cache/yay/companion/src/companion-2.4.2/node_modules/companion-module-seervision-suite: Command failed.

  The file is in the program because:

Found 1 error.

@mdeboer Thanks! I'll try with python3.11...

But what about "companion.install"? Raises an error because missing. Did you remove the file from the repo?

Thanks sausix for the addition, I have added that rule, updated to 2.4.2 and updated the build dependencies.

Unfortunately it does not play nice with python 3.11 (fails on compiling native libraries with node-gyp) so I had to require a python version lower than that.

Please note: This package is currently still a nightmare to package, hopefully v3 will fix that. I can't for the life get either 2.4.1 or 2.4.2 to build on my machine as it won't build the companion-module-seervision-suite with "error TS2688: Cannot find type definition file for 'node'.".

Anyway, I'll update the package and fingers crossed!

50-bitfocus-companion.rules could need an addition:
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0fd9:0080 Elgato Systems GmbH Stream Deck MK.2

Version 2.4.2 is also out since February.

not building here:

Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).

mdeboer commented on 2022-01-28 12:21 (UTC)

Updated to v2.1.4 and fix the build process :-)

Thanks @FabioLolix, fixed it now!
