Hey @mchal, that should be fixed now!

Line 16 is redundant as all files in bin/ are already marked a+x, and trying to chmod the not-set-satisfied symlinks in bin/ breaks the build process

Thanks @alerque, most all of these issues should be resolved now!

A few guidelines on packaging that should be fixed:

  • A license file must be installed if the license field is custom.
  • Don't add provides/conflicts for the same pkgname, they are nonsensical entries.
  • The package name should be fig-bin. When this is fixed the package can have provide/conflicts for fig so that people can find it that way with a search.
  • Don't "provide" a bunch of things that are not required by other packages and are not potentially packages themselves.
  • The find/sed shenanigans is unnecessary, just cp usr to the pkgdir.
  • Putting anything in /usr/bin with spaces in the name is ... unorthodox and potentially disruptive. I suggest either putting these somewhere in a private path (e.g. /usr/share/fig/bin/<shell>) or at the very least naming them fig-<shell> or something like that.
  • pkgdesc should not start with (or even include) the package name. Try starting just "Adds IDE-style..."
