@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.

@neo-alquimista I just tested that, and it works fine for me. Is it not downloading the source code for you? Have you set the download helper to something that doesn't handle HTTPS?

@gottcode I extract the snapshot, run 'makepkg -s' in the same folder and install it with sudo pacman -U 'packagename.tar.xz'. Yes, I have base-devel installed. I tried this many times in different installs and also in my other laptop.

@neo-alquimista How are you building it? It builds correctly for me by doing 'makepkg -s'. Do you have base-devel installed?

I have a problem. It's not building successfully. The final product doesn't contain any folders with relevant files in it. It's just .BUILDINFO, .MTREE and .PKGINFO. When installing it with pacman -U (...), pacman later reports it is installed but no shortcut is created in menus and it won't run via terminal. All dependencies are already installed.

@ChokesMcGee It redirects correctly for me and therefore installs work just fine, but I have changed the URL to be HTTPS to remove the redirect.
