@UshakovVasilii, agreed. In the mean time, it would be good if the maintainer of this package would throw something into the PKGBUILD to force MAKEFLAGS to have -j1 rather than anything else…

I think you need report about parallel build problem.

Hi, @GI_Jack as said @hodge you need compile schemas:
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

I also had a problem with -j5, but not with -j1, tis strange

Alister.Hood commented on 2015-01-05 00:34

It also fails for me without -j1

Hi @aaditya,
Why do you think so? I built Florence with -j6, I don't see any problem.
Thank you

It seems florence does not build parallely; I had to use make -j1 in the PKGBUILD to build it.

As I may not use AUR again anytime soon, I'm disowning the package.
Please do take good care :)

0.6 depends on gtk3 (and other gnome 3 libs). If you want the gtk2 version I suggest you download 0.54-gtk2 or below on sourceforge.

Anyone want to make a pkg for that?
