@Bevan, thanks for the report. I've removed the patches, which are now unneeded after

I think both of the patches need to be removed. At least they do not apply to the current version in git and the package built fine without them.

@BrianAllred Should be fixed on our end. If you could ask the maintainer of libfprint-tod-git to add a version field to the 'provides', like this


then things should work automatically.

How do you use a different version of libfprint if libfprint-git is explicitly specified as a dependency? I want to use libfprint-tod-git, but it replaces libfprint-git, which breaks this package's dependencies.

@RainbowNia sorry, but no: this package is explicitly designed to track the latest Git snapshot from upstream.

I cannot use my fingerprint sensor with this version of the package as it now requires which the libfprint 0097 version does not support. Can someone give me a way to install an older version that does not rely on that package?

@jal666 can you post the error log when usbutils is not installed? I can't find where any of its commands (lsusb, usb-devices, usbhid-dump) are needed.

Needs usbutils dep. Thanks!

@tuxflo You need to install the "pam_wrapper" package that's listed as a checkdepends to run the test. But you could just skip the test with the --nocheck option when running makepkg (or your favorite AUR helper).

Patch seems be working but now I ran into: ERROR: Problem encountered: Python3 module 'pypamtest' required by test suite not found

Couldn't find information about the pypamtest package, maybe just exclude the tests?
