It's working, but wlr-protocols-git isn't building correctly using yay. I've left a comment there and hopefully that'll get fixed soon.

I also suggested adding a provides=('wlr-protocols') line to their PKGBUILD. If they do, it might be better to change the dependency in this one to use wlr-protocols instead of relying directly on the -git package.

libxkbcommon and wlr-protocols-git have been added. Hope that works for people now. I am no longer using arch based distros now so I had some issues verifying.

New make dependency: wlr-protocols. Unfortunately, there seems to only be a wlr-protocols-git available, which feels a bit weird to me to depend on, but it needs something as this won't compile at the moment without it.

libxkbcommon should also be added to makedepends= otherwise the build fails with

wl-screen.c:10:10: fatal error: xkbcommon/xkbcommon.h: No such file or directory

wayland-protocols should be added to makedepends.

@DeedleFake Thank you! I have pushed a fix for this. In the future feel free to send patches to

Edit: Here's a patch to fix the problem.

I couldn't find an issue tracker to report this in, but as you seem to be the maintainer of both the actual Wayland port and this package, I thought I'd report it here:

When built using CONF=linux, drawterm produces the following error immediately after being run:

drawterm: sysfile.c:843: starterror: Assertion `up->nerrlab == 0' failed.

With the help of gdb, I was able to track the error to wl-cb.c where it seems to be caused by a call to sysfatal("registration fell short"). I believe that this is because I am running it in GNOME, and GNOME does not have support for zxdg_decoration_manager_v1. Would it be possible to make that usage optional and just display with no decorations if that's not available instead of crashing, by any chance? I'd send a pull request to do it myself, but there doesn't seem to be any procedure for that that I can find. It was a simple three-line fix. Just needed to remove the assertion for wl->decoman and add an if around its usage a few lines below.
