Is it that easy?

haawda commented on 2017-05-21 12:19

Does not build for me. Can someone confirm this?

I opened an upstream issue for this.

The official package does have it though, and freedesktop associations won't work if this isn't included.

Updated source URL, thanks.

Those namcap 'errors' aren't errors. There's no reason to assume someone has/needs 'desktop-file-utils' and wants their mime types messing with.

Alad commented on 2015-07-13 07:20

Also, namcap output:

geeqie-git E: Mime type handler found. Add "update-desktop-database -q" to the install file
geeqie-git E: Dependency desktop-file-utils detected and not included (needed for update-desktop-database)
geeqie-git W: Dependency lcms2 included but already satisfied

Users can still build a GTK2 version by passing --disable-gtk3 to configure.

Adopted + Updated. Please let me know in the comments if the documentation bug still occurs (that was from 2 years ago so I hope it's fixed!)

Please can you update this PKGBUILD to use the inbuilt VCS sources system?

If you don't want to/don't use this software anymore - I'm willing to maintain this package, just let me know :)

Now the fix for...
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file ‘/tmp/yaourt-tmp-myuser/aur-geeqie-git/pkg/usr/share/doc/geeqie-1.0/html/AdvancedFeatures.html’: No such file or directory to add...
install -d -m755 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/doc/geeqie-1.1/html
...just befere the "make install" line ("1.1" instead of "1.0").

Also, I think it would be good to enable lirc support by adding "--enable-lirc" at the end of "./" and "./configure" lines, and changing the "optdepends" line to something like...
optdepends=('librsvg: SVG rendering' 'lirc-utils: install lirc-utils and reinstall geeqie-git to enable linux infrared remote control support')

This way if it finds lirc installed it enables it, otherwise it silently ignores it.

stativ commented on 2012-06-28 16:47

The fix is pretty simple – add the following line into the package() function just before the "make install":
install -d -m755 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/doc/geeqie-1.0/html

I know about this issue. The geeqie binary was built successfully. But error with doc installations.

This PKGBUILD fails to install, but the problem seems to be in the Makefiles from git.
Here are the relevant messages
make install-data-hook
make[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/yaourt-tmp-myuser/aur-geeqie-git/src/geeqie-build/doc'
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file ‘/tmp/yaourt-tmp-myuser/aur-geeqie-git/pkg/usr/share/doc/geeqie-1.0/html/AdvancedFeatures.html’: No such file or directory

Thank you. I fix PLGBUILD.

stativ commented on 2012-01-06 17:48

Thanks, Zuf, for uploading this PKGBUILD. I didn't have time to create the package myself. As a gift, I've merged the votes from geeqie-svn to your package.

Just one note: use git as a makedepends, it's not needed at runtime.

stativ commented on 2012-01-06 17:47

Removing, replaced by the geeqie-git package.

As I can see main developers switched to git:
