Now that emacs-wayland is available in Extra, I think this package has run its course. Run sudo pacman -S emacs-wayland to switch to Emacs 29.1, with native compilation and pure GTK if – like, I suspect, most people – that's what you're after.

I think that, between emacs-git and emacs-wayland, this package is now redundant, so I plan to submit a deletion request for it after a while. If for whatever reason you still find it valuable, please speak up.

@OmayaO texinfo is part of the base-devel group, so any AUR package may freely depend on it to build.

OmayaO commented on 2023-03-09 04:41 (UTC)

it needed texinfo to compile. I'm not sure if it's a runtime dependency or not

not sure but after running this command pkg-config --list-all configure found the dependencies

@TomFryers when I disable ALSA I got stuck in gtk+. I have not been able to compile since 2020 March 01 after changed the SDD and re-installed OS, I use my custom build which have been failing without fail, and need too be sure where I have messed up, but seems like still nowhere.

TomFryers commented on 2022-09-21 16:45 (UTC)

@rhoit Not sure what's causing that, but disabling ALSA in the PKGBUILD will probably fix it. I've gone ahead and set it do be disabled by default (why would I want Emacs making noise?), so it should just work now.

rhoit commented on 2022-09-21 04:46 (UTC)

i'm getting this error

checking for alsa >= 1.0.0... no configure: error: ALSA sound support requested but not found. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

The commit 59206529a17a8ae976072d8306882c4ff37a2fbd made on July 5 broke the version parsing, regarding line 26 in If I understand the pkgver() logic correctly, only a single line is expected for the AC_INIT line, but now there are two lines.

In addition, since they also added quoting using square brackets, just merging the two lines into a single line does not help -- I only get the expected result when I also remove the square brackets. For reference, here is what I changed:

I've switched the remote to GitHub.

You can clone the GitHub mirror and change the remotes (git remote remove origin and git add remote origin <Savannah repository> followed by git fetch) for a faster download
