I've been running dwm for like, 10 years?, in raspberry pis and chromebooks.

Only now noticed

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

Please change it to

arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'arm' 'armv7h' 'armv6h' 'aarch64')

Thanks in advance.

Depends On      : libx11  libxinerama  libxft
Depends On      : libx11  libxinerama  libxft  freetype2  st  dmenu

Quick question, why the difference ?

I'm not 100% sure, and can't find it browsing the dwm site. Is dwm really still ("officially") dependent on "st" and "dmenu" ? Or is just a "Depends On" tag that needs to be corrected, either in "dwm" or "dwm-git" ?

PS: Tip, there is now an official Arch package called "bemenu" that works BOTH on the console and X/Wayland. Very nice alternative to dmenu.

Look, maybe it will be more convenient. In this case, config.h is not needed in the array. So implemented in st-git PKGBUILD.

prepare() { cd $srcdir/${pkgname%-git}

echo 'Copying config.def.h to $startdir...' cp -fv config.def.h "$startdir/"

if [[ -f "$startdir/config.h" ]]; then echo 'Copy config.h to the build directory...' cp -fv "$startdir/config.h" config.h fi }

Sure, done. I also removed the epoch and made the version conform to -git package practice.

Correct the prepare section:

prepare() { cd $_pkgname if [[ -f "$srcdir/config.h" ]]; then cp -f "$srcdir/config.h" config.h fi }

Two instances of $pkgname/ need to be removed from the prepare section then it works.

My config.h is not being copied to src/dwm and therefore is not being utilized. I even checked taking the config.h that gets created by this package, making a slight modification (changed one colour), then placed that config.h into a newly extracted tarball. Still no. Could you check please?

Somehow, something here is running 'apt-get'.

Hey, I've changed your PKGBUILD so it uses git branches to store user configs and applied patches. Check it out

bidulock commented on 2016-04-18 05:46 (UTC)

The reason for epoch was the the version numbering system was change to comply with VCS PKGBUILD guidelines and the package would not upgrade without it.
