@io7m: Sorry, I can't reproduce the error you get. I reinstalled the normal juce AUR package and rebuild this package with makepkg. I also tried building with trizen. Both times the package was built successfully.

I admit, I don't know much about how .jucer files are supposed to work, so maybe those outdated paths are a problem. I suggest you try commenting out lines 23-27 in the PKGBUILD and see if the build still fails. If yes, this should be reported upstream.

I just noticed that I have installed a custom PKGBUILD for juce. I'll try to reproduce the error with the normal juce AUR package. In the meantime, if you want, you can try my PKGBUILD:

yaourt -G dexed; cd dexed; makepkg leads to the exact same error, unfortunately.

@io7m: can you try and confirm whether it builds on your system with plain makepkg (e.g. "yaourt -G dexed; cd dexed; makepkg")?

Seem to be having trouble building this:

This is building using trizen. I see some relative paths in Dexed.jucer: Is it possible that the build script is making some assumptions about where things will be (and those assumptions are violated depending on which AUR frontend tool you're using)?

Heads up: unfortunately the Dexed VST plugin does not work on Linux in release 0.9.4. I've filed a bug in Dexed's Github issue tracker. Until this is resolved I can only recommend to return to release 0.9.3 if you need the VST plugin. The new standalone version in release 0.9.4 seems to work ok, though.

Here's a PKGBUILD, which you can use for version 0.9.3:
