I have created the package dmenu-wl-dmenu-dropin that provides dmenu and creates the symlinks.

I have removed the dmenu symlinks and will be creating a package that includes these symlinks later on.

This package shouldn't have the dmenu => dmenu-wl symlinks just to make it conflict with dmenu and give headaches to who wants to use X11 and Wayland on the same system.

Those symlinks should be in another package, dmenu-wl-dmenu-dropin, or something.

This package should NOT conflict with dmenu. It only provides symlinks for dmenu => dmenu-wl, etc. This is really bad, cause I have both X11 and Wayland installed and setup to work simultaneously. I want to use both dmenu and dmenu-wl and I see no reason why that shouldn't be possible, despite this PKGBUILD making them conflict!

I would love to receive some kind of response, as architector4 submitted the same request over 1 1/2 years ago.

I feel like this package shouldn't provide dmenu (as it promises to not do in the comment on 20th line in the PKGBUILD). I mean, isn't there a reason the developer named the binary differently?

This package requires wayland dependency otherwise I get this error by buildingi n chroot: ERROR: Dependency "wayland-client" not found, tried pkgconfig

@asppsa I added your patch. Thank you.

Here's a patch for the pkgver issue:

also there's a small error on the pkgver():

Upstream switched to meson. Fixed.
