Geeqie will no longer install in YAY or in pamac. Please update the AUR build. Geeqie is an invaluable tool

I removed lines 34 and 35 of the PKGBUILD before building the package: 34 --disable-lua \ 35 --disable-pdf

The last commit, on 2020-12-10, makes geeqie perfectly usable in Wayland but you have to check "Use GPU acceleration via Clutter library" in Settings → Image.

The pdf preview is a bitmap of the first page (if multi-page document), better than only having a pdf icon.

The github mirror used to be up to date...

For me only disabling lua works ('--disable-lua').

It seems that the correct Lua dependency is 'lua51' instead of 'lua'.

If the build fails with a Lua related error one of the following modifications of the PKGBUILD file may solves the problem:

  • Add the '--disable-lua' option to

  • Add 'export LUA_CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/lua5.1' and 'export LUA_LIBS=-llua5.1' before calling
