Thanks for the heads up, the upstream change didn't cause a build failure so I wouldn't have noticed otherwise!

Ropid commented on 2019-07-26 21:18

Upstream has renamed the "build_docs" option into "with_docs". In the PKGBUILD on line 36, things have now to be changed into "-Dwith_docs=true".

Here's the upstream commit where this happened:

Thanks for the heads up.

uthash is now a (build?) dependency.

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.

WorMzy commented on 2018-12-19 09:18

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. :)
