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.

Please update it. :)

Now fixed, there was problem with my git repo, since emacs repo is huge I normally clone it separately with --depth=1, where I change few thing
in config, which resulted repo not being updated.


recently it I'm having problem with.

configure: error: The following required libraries were not found:
Maybe some development libraries/packages are missing?
If you don't want to link with them give
as options to configure
