@gottcode thanks for the feedback. I was able to get it installed.

@pavelC I don't see any warning messages in that screenshot. The text -DQT_DEPRECATED_WARNINGS is just a flag passed during compile to enable warnings, and not a warning itself.

@gottcode Thanks for the quick response! I'm using Qt5.10.1-2 and g++ 7.3.0. Here's an image of where the warnings start:

update: I ran it again. Even with the warnings, I did get the package built and installed.

@pavelC That's strange, I don't get any. Do you have the latest Qt? What compiler are you using? I just built the package with Qt 5.10.1 and both g++ 7.3.0 and clang++ 5.0.1, and there are no warnings for me.

When building the package, there are a lot of DQT_DEPRICATED_WARNINGS that prevent the package from being built properly.

@neo-alquimista Because no Arch Linux developer or Trusted User has started packaging it? I suppose you could ask on one of the mailing lists to see if anybody is interested. I've never requested having one of my projects added to a distro, so I don't know what the proper etiquette is. My projects just end up packaged eventually.

Curiosity: why isn't FocusWriter included in the normal Arch repositories when all the other distributions do?

@pavbaranov For now I just have it rerun qmake in the package section, and that picks up the generated files. The next release will properly detect them, so the hack is short term.

namcap focuswriter-1.6.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar
focuswriter W: Directory (usr/share/focuswriter/translations) is empty

Workaroud: After:
make INSTALL_ROOT="$pkgdir/" install
in the package section, add this line:
cp translations/*.qm $pkgdir/usr/share/focuswriter/translations

@gottcode it worked now. It wasn't downloading all the files properly before, but now it did. For me it seems like a remote issue. When pacman prompted for the installation, the size of install was 0.00 Kb, but now it says 7.xx Mb.
