Thanks for maintaining this! The .install file isn't necessary any more as Pacman will automatically run those commands as hooks (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman#Hooks)

Added a patch to enable v0.7.3 to build against the new Vala.

Cheers!

It appears that upstream fixed the problem with compilation (On Feb 16,2017); if you install font-manager-git, it installs OK.

May I suggest that the package maintainer request that upstream tag a new release so this package can pick up the fix?

Me too: I failed to install font-manager with this:
```
UX/Models/CollectionModel.vala:108.38-108.43: error: Argument 1: Cannot convert from `Gee.ArrayList<FontManager.Filter>' to `Gee.Collection<FontManager.Collection>'
var sorted = sort_groups(groups);
^^^^^^
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
make[1]: *** [Makefile:2115: libfontmanager_la_vala.stamp] Error 1

make: *** [Makefile:544: all-recursive] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

```
Any help please..?

I get the following compilation error on an up to date Arch:

UX/Models/CollectionModel.vala:108.38-108.43: error: Argument 1: Cannot convert from `Gee.ArrayList<FontManager.Filter>' to `Gee.Collection<FontManager.Collection>'

Just a heads up.

The latest version requires --with-file-roller if you still want support for that to be compiled.

This eases packaging for binary distributions.

@JohnRobson

Remove the applications cache folder and try again, i.e.

rm -rf ~/.cache/font-manager/

As always, careful with rm.

@Br1: your issue might be related to this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=199198

@Corax: did the latest PKGBUILD solved the problem?
