Builds fine here and also fetches submodules. File it upstream, if you have persistent problems with the submodules.

Could you put: "efficient compression tool" or "efficient-compression-tool" in the description to make it easier to find the package?

Presently using the default search settings "ect" pulls in a lot of unrelated packages which makes it harder to find this package and this problem was brought up by a Discord user of a Discord server that i'm in - this is easily fixable by changing the search filters to look for an exact match though.

As @sekret wrote, this package is broken.

The directory also has the pkgver in it, which you'll need to add.

edit: Oh ok, that PKGBUILD is completely broken! Looks like you've changed quite a lot. Please test your PKGBUILDs on your machine before you upload them.

Thanks, done.

Please add cmake to makedepends.

  1. This is not out of date. https://github.com/fhanau/Efficient-Compression-Tool/releases
  2. Added git to make-depends
  3. Could not reproduce libtool errors.

libtool: Version mismatch error. This is libtool 2.4.6, but the libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.6.42-b88ce. libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4.6 libtool: and run autoconf again.
