@hasmar04 No, they are part of base-devel, which is an implicit requirement for using the AUR:

patch and make should be added to the required dependencies, failed to install without these on Manjaro 23.1.3.

for my fingerprint to work i need a driver 'libfprint-goodixtls-55x2' it conflicts with the dependency and fails to install any way around this?

Installing ends with these warnings:

chown: warning: '.' should be ':': ‘root.plugdev’
chown: warning: '.' should be ':': ‘root.plugdev’
chown: warning: '.' should be ':': ‘root.root’

Running fingerprint-gui 1.09 fails after:

(process:30267): libfprint-async-WARNING **: 15:19:39.037: usb_open failed, error -3

The package already uses the only release available at so the package is not out- of date. If you want to use the latest git version it should be named fingerprint-gui-git, i.e. it would be another package.

@Hate9: Here's a PKGBUILD using RogueScholar's fork.

@PhotonX I too am running Manjaro on the laptop with the fingerprint reader. I've added the module only in /etc/pam.d/sudo. Perhaps you have the module in some other file under /etc/pam.d and this causes some trouble.

I'm running Manjaro on the machine in question (Arch on a different machine, where fingerprint-gui isn't in use), possibly it is something Manjaro specific... I also need to add that my fingerprint reader isn't being recognized so fingerprint-gui isn't fully configured, just installed. Not a big deal if the issue cannot be reproduced and fixed, since I cannot use it anyway. Just left the comment here in case somebody else stubles upon the same problem.

@PhotonX I'm unable to reproduce the bug, on my PC pamac can install packages without problems.
