clean chroot build fails:

==> ERROR: makedepends is not allowed to be empty.
==> ERROR: Could not download sources.

Not sure I agree with make(chroot)pkg's policy on this (I can imagine some packages have no makedepends()), but it wants something in that array.

EDIT again: Indeed, not specifying makedepends() at all is the thing to do (delete PKGBUILD line 15).

gettext is in the base-devel group, it's not necessary to include it.

@dominicm Is very simple, as long as there is no release, a git repository is a constantly developing repository and you have to make a git payout of it. (AUR and common sense standards) It is very simple to release a release. Release version 8.4.0 and update this package to that release.

@ValHue Not sure what the distinction between stable in this case is since the old release was broken and the new only fixed the bugs. I don't think there will be new releases any time soon if at all. I any case I will use the git version for now, it's working with no issues.

Dominicm, since there is no stable version in github, there is no release, what I do is create a new package: cover-thumbnailer-git. When the stable version has a new release I will update this one.

I have been in contact with the developer who ended up fixing a bug where cover-thumbnailer did not work for samba shares. I also asked him to create a github repository for convenience. I submitted a pull request with the patches used i this package. The package now works without additional patches at least on my system. Could you update the package from the new repo?

Made minors changes. It works correctly in gnome 3.16.

Apparently the project is abandoned. But with the fix you've applied it works correctly in gnome 3.12. Enjoy it!

0.8.3 is out just change checksum and md5sums=('993d38410104b15e41b1b08fa423b332') cd $srcdir/${pkgname}_${pkgver}_src remove cover-thumbnailer.thumbnailer and its install, not needed anymore (done by the 0.8.3 release).

cover-thumbnailer should work under Gnome 3 now. Thanks for the hint, bzt. Gruß Moritz

bzt commented on 2011-05-28 20:05 (UTC)

To have this working in GNOME 3, you need to create /usr/share/thumbnailers/cover-thumbnailer.thumbnailer with the following contents: [Thumbnailer Entry] TryExec=cover-thumbnailer Exec=cover-thumbnailer %u %o MimeType=inode/directory;

The gconf-schema doesn't get set properly, it isn't working. It can be fixed by typing these commands as root after installations: export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=`gconftool-2 --get-default-source` gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/cover-thumbnailer.schemas Thanks to the Flogisoft developer who helped me with that issue. Cheers, Flo

hi boenki, thanks for the improvement. I've uploaded your new package. Gruß Moritz

the programm still doesn't run here but meanwhile I have almost completely rewritten the PKGBUILD. At first I just wanted to replace your "psychidelic sed-escaping magic". Then I also changed pkgdesc, license, arch, install, depends etc. There's no need to "sed" as it doesn't call the relevant function in packaging-mode ( -p) and "sed -i" saves a lot of code, too. I put the PKGBUILD here: Grüße aus Bonn--Steffen
