This doesn't work?

[fred@laptop ~]$ emoji-keyboard 
This doesn't look like a squashfs image.

Cannot mount AppImage, please check your FUSE setup.
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage 
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option.

Ah, I am still kinda new to AUR handling and I couldn't find that the other night when looking, must've had other stuff on my mind to stop me seeing it right in front of me, I've just pushed that live now.

The PKGBULD tries to move the binary to the target location in prepare() instead of package(). By doing it in package() you avoid having to call sudo; makepkg takes care of this automatically. See here.

Replacing prepare() with the following worked for me using pamac:

package() {
  chmod a+x ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.AppImage
  mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin
  cp -L ${pkgname}-${pkgver}.AppImage $pkgdir/usr/bin/emoji-keyboard

Pamac is available on Arch too, but yes, I'm mainly using Pamac since it's UI based and easier to use. So this was an unexpected problem and first time I've seen it.

@Skalli84, I don't think we're doing manjaro things here.

Do other packages work with pamac?

When updating with Pamac it failed for me: ==> Starting prepare()... sudo: a terminal is required to read the password; either use the -S option to read from standard input or configure an askpass helper sudo: a password is required ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... Solution was to use terminal, but imho it should run with Pamac too.

Hi following - doesnt work, since /dev/uinput is not user writable on arch


as well as

So we need s.t. like:

KERNEL=="uinput", GROUP="uinput", MODE="0660"




groupadd uinput

and maybe the hint to

usermod -aG uinput` 
sg uinput

I tried to update this project. Since 2.2.0, upstream has switched from gtk to electron, and, as a result is now using npm. The source tree with node packages has grown to over 1 GB and build times are very long on my pc. For now I can't do anything for this project, you are better off with a prebuilt version from GitHub -

Is there a way to get this package updated?
