Hello everyone,

I'm currently not using a single snap on my system anymore (not for any special reasons, just happened that way). I'll continue to update this package for some more months, but then I'll orphan it. If someone steps up to take it over, I'll orphan it sooner for that person to adopt it.

It's actually a low maintenance package (just sync with Extra/discover from time to time!) and so it might be a nice first package to maintain if you want to get into it.

mystery solved :)

@iagoiago it's actually snapd-glib that's missing that dependency. I updated it a while ago.

i recall it needing a "valagen" bin i believe. maybe check if something else brought it into your system, as this system's fairly fresh. or ofc it's possible i got confused, and commented on the wrong tab :) ty

@iagoiago It compiles without vala in my test

❯ pacman -Q vala
error: package 'vala' was not found

missing the vala dependency

The following two changes need to be made to the PKGBUILD in order for this package to work properly with AUR helpers like yay:

  1. Line 7: pkgver=5.16.4, NOT 5.15.6
  2. Line 19: Typo: underscore missing from source=("https://download.kde.org/stable/plasma/$pkgver/$_pkgname-$pkgver.tar.xz"{,.sig}) results in attempt to download discover-snap-$pkgver.tar.xz which does not exist on the KDE servers

Apparently git push isn't allowed on the AUR because if it was I would have a fix and a pull request waiting for you.

@michaldybczak AUR isn't for people who don't know basic bash and aren't willing to learn. Anyone can upload whatever they want to it and maintainers change all the time. At least be able to read it once and check the diff on new versions.

michaldybczak commented on 2019-06-02 11:28 (UTC)

@droidman, it's not that simple. I changed version but then sums don't match, so I added 'SKIP' but then build failed anyway, for example:

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n] Apply anyway? [n] Skipping patch.

I'm just an average user and don't have enough technical knowledge to update the PKGBUILD to the current version myself. I thought the reason for such packages is that we - average users - could install it easily and keep it up to date. If that package is just a blueprint and must be maintained manually, this is too much of a hassle for me.

@michaldybczak just edit the makepkg to the latest version, it will just work. If you have more free time than me you're free to maintain it. https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/discover can just build it if you add -DBUILD_SnapBackend=ON .

michaldybczak commented on 2019-05-14 18:17 (UTC)

This package is either dead or poorly maintained. There were no regular updates in the past and we had to ask for the newer version. Now even this doesn't help and the package is at least outdated since 2 months. Maybe there is a way to use git version and compile it with snap? Hmm... I'll try.

This should conflict with discover. (And perhaps provide discover in case anything in the AUR depends on it.)

@reefland try to install snapd-glib or snapd-glib-git with Trizen. If that fails try to manually install it or use yay. I can confirm this builds manually and with yay on vanilla arch.

Tried to install using Trizen, ended with this:
