Hello, elisa-git fails to build as the license file is not present anymore (seems that the license is now LGPL3 as also per elisa in community), I think that this patch would be appropriate:

You might also consider incrementing the pkgrel to 2 as the PKGBUILD changed but as the pkgrel would change as well as there are new commits, I'm not sure what should be done.

Suggestion for adding conflicts with elisa package directive

ursus commented on 2018-05-06 15:36 (UTC)

@z3ntu Sure, fair enough. Thanks for including the lib fix ;-)

@ursus: Thanks for the patch. I have not included the changes with the optdepends though as the upstream README.packagers says

Please consider packaging Elisa with all its recommended dependencies. Even if they are not required, a nice fallback is not always implemented and user experience may suffer a lot.

People not wanting baloo or kcmutils can remove the dependencies from the PKGBUILD on their own in my opinion.

Hi @z3ntu and @FabioLolix

Recent versions of elisa-git try to install into /usr/lib64, thus breaking the installation (as /usr/lib64 is only a symlink on arch).

I solved this with the following patch (also moving some of the dependencies to be treated as optional dependencies - following the latest set of commits in elisa):

@FabioLolix Yeah sure. Just pushed the update removing the v prefix.

Hello z3ntu, thanks for poiting out, I have missed that. Would you like to co-maintain this since I don't use much KDE?

z3ntu commented on 2018-02-13 08:12 (UTC)

The pkgver should not contain the 'v' prefix (see
