pkgver is really uncool to identify the git commit - my suggestion is:

pkgver() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname%-git}"
    printf "v%s" "$(git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g')"

@ObscureScience I was able to build and run it without an issue, it might have been a bug at the time you tried to build it. Try it now and see if you still have issues. That being said, the PKGBUILD could still be updated to a new git version.

I've flagged this package out-of-date, because of the need too update the the dependence of gtksourceview3 to gtksourceview4. Though it failed to link for me, with undefined references to lmdb symbols Eg. "mdb_cursor_open".

I'll update here if I find the problem.

gst-editing-services package is needed now to compile

bergentroll commented on 2019-01-08 11:32 (UTC)

FalkAlexander, this PKGBUILD should contains the next lines: conflicts: fractal provides: fractal

Also there is seems a lost dependency: gtksourceview3.

Please add the "libhandy" (AUR) package to the dependencies. Otherwise, the libhandy-sys crate won't compile.

I get this error when trying to install:

libhandy needs to be added to the depends list (it's both a compile-time and runtime dependency).

Gamma commented on 2018-09-24 19:21 (UTC) (edited on 2018-09-26 23:44 (UTC) by Gamma)

Needs dependency: gtksourceview3

(e: both make and regular depend)

svito commented on 2018-09-21 01:45 (UTC)

There is a typo in 'conflics' (missing 't').

Official GNOME packages have also switched to arch-meson wrapper script [1], albeit this is not documented yet in GNOME packaging guidelines :/


Thanks for the package, and see you later :)

For the lazy who just want the package to work:

brainblasted commented on 2018-04-20 03:55 (UTC)

Another thing once that is fixed: The source needs to start with git+http:// rather than https:// or else it downloads rather than git clones, and the package cannot be built

brainblasted commented on 2018-04-19 21:42 (UTC)

Missing conflicts and provides fields. Also, pkgver does not generate. Try cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}/" instead of cd "${_gitname}"

brainblasted commented on 2018-04-19 16:48 (UTC)

Because this is a package, the correct prefix would me /usr. /usr/local would be for user-installed software, rather than package manager installed software.

FalkAlexander commented on 2018-04-17 20:32 (UTC)

Updated pkgbuild, now using meson + ninja buildtools (thx @ brainblasted for the information). @vasya: I think for Arch the rust package is sufficient

vasya commented on 2018-03-24 10:37 (UTC)

It seems that argo-vendor (AUR package) is also required to build this. Otherwise I get this when trying to build fractal-git: Program cargo-vendor found: NO

FalkAlexander commented on 2018-01-11 09:27 (UTC)

Added meson to makedepends.

s.pantaleev commented on 2018-01-06 10:09 (UTC)

meson is required to build this, so it should be added to makedepends.
