Thanks! cmake is in makedepends of lxqt-build-tools-git, not in depends. That's indeed a little bit strange - I left a comment there. Anyway cmake should be a makedepends of this package, too, as PKGBUILD does call cmake.

Shouldn't cmake be installed by lxqt-build-tools-git? git was indeed a missing dependency.

I reverted dependencies changes.

Hi, could you add git, cmake and qt5-tools back to makedepends? Without them, this package doesn't build in clean chroots.

These are errors I got from extra-x86_64-build -- -I lxqt-build-tools-git-0.6.0-1-any.pkg.tar.xz:

  ==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.

  /startdir/PKGBUILD: line 36: cmake: command not found

  CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:35 (find_package):
    By not providing "FindQt5LinguistTools.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this
    project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
    "Qt5LinguistTools", but CMake did not find one.

    Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5LinguistTools"
    (requested version 5.7.1) with any of the following names:


    Add the installation prefix of "Qt5LinguistTools" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or
    set "Qt5LinguistTools_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
    files.  If "Qt5LinguistTools" provides a separate development package or
    SDK, be sure it has been installed.

I was able to get it to work. I think I was having a cache issue or being stupid and reinstalling the wrong package. Thanks for the help.

@8BitSloth You need to rebuild lxqt-build-tools-git, and that's precisely the reason I added the version constraint (reference).

As you know, the user is responsible to manually update from time to time *-git packages.

This package is requesting a version of lxqt-build-tools-git that isn't in the AUR.

Components from libxlqt only were transferred to lxqt-build-tools. qt5-tools still represent a build dependency.

AlfredoRamos commented on 2016-09-25 15:27

@jedr93 It's not outdated, it doesn't need any change, *-git packages need to be rebuilt manually.

Upstream switched to using Qt 5 by default.
This has to be reflected by either adding '-DUSE_QT4=yes' to cmake invocation or changing the 'depends' line to provide Qt 5 where definitely the latter seems the right thing to do.

Aside from this I'd like so suggest two improvements.
Download should be handled by HTTPS.
Relying on 'git describe --always' to get the current version, as e. g. done in all LXQt AUR packages, is providing a more helpful result.

You may find a PKGBUILD implementing all these changes at your disposal on

Ok, I don't understand what
"replace#global#cmake\\\ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="\\\/usr"$#mv README\\\n\\\ \\\ & "

I you want as README you can adopt the package cause I don't know what you want.

I don't use Arch anymore either so feel free to OCD the shit out of it.
