What DE are you using ?

I see you're coming from this page :

It looks like you made it work at some point by compining the source yourself. Any news on this ?

@zagg this is exactly the same error I get

libfprint-git get installed correctly but I have an issue during fprintd compilation on this AUR package :

I get "failure in build()" even with the newest libfprint-git

the patch was required for arch on my setup at least. Maybe there are some permissions that i don't have set properly?

Hmm, it also doesn't look like disable-systemd-protection.patch is necessary, at least not on Manjaro. What do you say?

sebirdman commented on 2019-12-28 01:17

Thanks for the suggestion timothy_gu! I've updated the package to add those changes.

I've also updated everything to track the master branch now that our MR is merged.

It doesn't look like gobject-introspection is needed for this package (though it is for libfprint-git). Locally I have found the following dependencies work:

depends=(dbus-glib 'glib2>=2.56' 'libfprint-git>=1.90.0' 'polkit>=0.91')
makedepends=(intltool gtk-doc git pam)
checkdepends=(python-cairo python-dbusmock python-gobject)


check() {
  cd $pkgname_
  make check

python-cairo and gobject-introspection should be build-deps.
