I'm unable to build the PKGBUILD in a fresh arch nspawn container:

I've installed first git, then pacman -U lua51-5.1.5-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz, and installation works fine. After installation there's no problem tu update lua

The following PKGBUILD fixes lua5.1 compilation issues as well as speeding up compilation time:

@firekage, I had the same problem.
If lua51 is installed on your system next to lua5.3 then what you can do:

clone the github repo:

in the file cmake/ConkyPlatformChecks.cmake, modify the check and library settings for LUA in the following way (close to line 259):
# If we need tolua++, we must compile against Lua 5.1
pkg_search_module(LUAAA REQUIRED lua51)
message(FATAL_ERROR "Unable to find lua51: version '${LUAAA_VERSION}'")
# Otherwise, use the most recent Lua version
pkg_search_module(LUA REQUIRED lua>=5.3 lua5.3 lua-5.3 lua53 lua5.2 lua-5.2 lua52 lua5.1 lua-5.1 lua51 lua>=5.1)
set(conky_libs ${conky_libs} ${LUAAA_LIBRARIES})
set(conky_includes ${conky_includes} ${LUAAA_INCLUDE_DIRS})

Then follow the make and install procedure under the wiki of the project.
At config time set option ON for BUILD_LUA_CAIRO (or IMLIB2 or RSVG)

I cant install it:

checking for one of the modules 'lua=5.1;lua5.1;lua-5.1'

I have lua installed in version 5.3, but it needs 5.1. Could somebody help?

When i'm trying to install the package i get:

Scanning dependencies of target docs

make: *** [all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build conky-lua.

What's wrong and what can i do to repair it?

Could you please add to the PKGBUILD


to the build() options? Would be a convenience for those of us monitoring wireless interfaces.

Thanks regardless, for the pkg.
