A heads up: Emacs master has now working systemd integration but the logic to isntall the new user service file is partially broken under Arch. This new PKGBUILD adds a small hack to fix this, therefore it is highly recommended you update to this version or at least peruse the fix at the end of the file.

Ah, OK. Ricardo Wurmus patches got in a couple of days ago. I'm running the script through namcap to make sure different option combinations work OK and I'll upload the updated version momentarily.

I'll look into that as soon as possible.

Since some very recent commits, emacs with gtk3 and xwidgets enabled introduces webkit2gtk instead of webkitgtk as dependency. The configure script checks for webkitgtk+, but in Arch Linux this seems to mean webkit2gtk.

Also, combining gtk2 (i.e. setting gtk3=<empty_string and xwitgets="Yes") is not possible and leads to

configure: error: xwidgets requested but gtk3 not used.

I think you need to remove the line

# remove conflict with texinfo
rm "$pkgdir"/usr/share/info/

As a reference, look at and

@yakshaver Err. No. You are expected to install the base-devel group in order to compile *any* PKGBUILD. Picking and choosing is not really an option.

Ahhh I figured it out. I did not have pkg-config installed, which actually causes any dependency checks to fail.

yakshaver commented on 2016-09-07 21:33

Is anyone else having trouble installing this with error messages about alsa support?

@urobyd Update what again? Increasing the release number of the PKGBUILD will not change a colon of its contents; unless you have a patch to propose that I will gladly consider.
