Please do not flag this package as out-of-date if it still builds fine and isn't missing any dependencies or anything

Please add libxmu to the depends. Otherwise the build is not compiling in a chroot.

This was fixed upstream just now. See

Seem like the commit dc6d755ada911dcc02b91a9c3fa6e6da4b544693 accidentally added stb as submodule.

Add git rm subprojects/stb just before git submodule init should fix it for now

This is currently broken due to the gamescope repo adding stb as a submodule without committing the .gitmodules, I think.

I was able to get this to build by setting to the source to the last hash that worked:

There seems to be two new dependencies: libdisplay-info and edid-decode. Both are present at the AUR as git packages.

jgmdev: Done!

jgmdev commented on 2022-11-13 02:44 (UTC)

Can you please add -Dwlroots:backends=drm,libinput,x11 to the meson setup call to enable standalone support which only works with the drm backend and it seems is not enabled by default anymore? This is useful for running for example gamescope+steam-bigpicture from the login manager without having to launch a whole desktop environment, something that helps on the performance deparment. And also -Dwlroots:renderers=gles2,vulkan to allow some more renderers just in case...

On my previous comment, I said that it was necessary to replace git submodule with git submodule--helper, but it seems that there is another - less hacky - way:


git submodule update


git -c protocol.file.allow=always submodule update

There was an update on git. It is necessary to change the PKGBUILD, replacing

 git submodule update


git submodule--helper update

There were some discussions about this subject on this post.
