I had to comment out to ignore the systemd service unit file like in the patch below:

 polkit_policy = 'net.reactivated.fprint.device.policy'
 polkit_policy_target = i18n.merge_file(

to avoid the error message (conflicting with open-fprintd.service) below:

@j.r I confirm that the latest version builds successfully for me too, without the dependency on pod2man.

Sorry for the false alarm, not sure what happened.

I have confirmed I cloud build the package! Now open-fprintd is working fine!

@TomaszHerman @KJWRHRO I patched the bug, this package now builds with latest meson

@KJWRHRO There is some issue in recent meson version: Downgrading meson to 0.59.2-1 fixes the issue with build.

I can't build this package. What should I do?

fprintd-clients/data/ ERROR: Function does not take positional arguments.

A full log can be found at /home/*/.cache/yay/fprintd-clients/src/build/meson-logs/meson-log.txt ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... -> error making: fprintd-clients

@stanm builds for me in a clean chroot without pod2man

stanm commented on 2021-08-29 10:40 (UTC)

I had to change PKGBUILD of fprintd-clients to include pod2man as a dependency to successfully install.

@HankvanHinton open-fprintd should provide fprintd I think...
