Regarding the two previous errors, the path to the archive is wrong, and the symlink needs to be created within the fakeroot environment.

I could install the package by adjusting the package() function in PKGBUILD like this:

package() {
    cd "$srcdir/${pkgname%-git}"
    bsdtar -xf dist/G-Desktop-Suite-*.pacman -C "$pkgdir"

    install -Dm644 LICENSE -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname%-git}"

    mkdir "$pkgdir"/usr/bin
    ln -s "/opt/G Desktop Suite/gdesktopsuite" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/gdesktopsuite"

    rm "$pkgdir"/.[^.]*

bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open 'dist/gdesktopsuite-*.pacman'

I receive the above error when building.

This fails for me:

==> Entering fakeroot environment... ==> Starting package()... ln: failed to create symbolic link '/usr/bin/gdesktopsuite': Permission denied ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

Not forgot, just done incorrectly.

The more you know.

You forgot to run makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO. ;)

post_install() and post_remove() functions belong in a separate install file, not in the PKGBUILD. You don't need any of that as the package() function covers everything. Pacman also automatically updates the mime and desktop database, this isn't Debian.

Runtime dependencies are missing, see the Debian control file. yarn is only a build dependency. The bsdtar command can be used instead of tar and does not require any additional dependencies as pacman requires libarchive.

Please use a temporary Yarn cache as not to clutter the user's home directory.

There's no need to change the file extension from .pacman to .tar.xz, the XZ compression will be detected automatically.

Improved PKGBUILD.
