The error seems pretty self-explanatory.

makepkg -C is what you need, no idea if pikaur has an option to pass that through or not.

Updating the package with pikaur is giving me the following error. Any idea what's going on?

Directory already configured.

Just run your build command (e.g. ninja) and Meson will regenerate as necessary.
If ninja fails, run "ninja reconfigure" or "meson --reconfigure"
to force Meson to regenerate.

If build failures persist, run "meson setup --wipe" to rebuild from scratch
using the same options as passed when configuring the build.
To change option values, run "meson configure" instead.

OK thanks, was just wondering if anyone else has seen this.

There's little point in reporting that here. Check out the open issues at and open a new one if your symptoms aren't covered by an existing one.

Latest release


had a very deleterious effect on my Xorg usage. Made vlc full screen video almost unwatchably jerky.

I'll do you one better and add it as a dependency. :)

Anthony25 commented on 2018-12-16 15:55

Hi, Could you add libxdg-basedir as makedendency please?


WorMzy commented on 2018-11-08 22:18

No worries, I've re-enabled the docs for this package by default.

If you want to be added as a co-maintainer for this package btw, just let me know.

yshui commented on 2018-11-08 21:44

WorMzy, sorry, I could've made it more clear in the commit. But my intention of setting build_doc to false by default is so that users who build compton themselves does not have to install asciidoc. For packaging, I think it is better to add asciidoc as dependency and build the man pages.

WorMzy commented on 2018-11-06 12:04

archtom, I'm guessing you are tiiiecherle@github and/or are following this issue? In which case you are building from a commit that predates (by a day) the decision by upstream to remove the asciidoc makedep by default. In that case, you can either use the PKGBUILD from before this package was updated to reflect that [1], or you can uncomment line #28 [2] to add the asciidoc makedep back in for your build. The current version of the PKGBUILD is only expected to build against origin/HEAD, not historical commits. If you run into problems building the PKGBUILD without alterations, then let me know.


EDIT: Bleh, AUR's markdown made this more difficult than it needed to be.
