After configuring grail to use xorgproto, and frame / geis to use xorg-server, recompiling, I encounter an error stating C compiler cannot create executables. A brief search yielded nothing concrete I could spot but I imagine it could be due to an error in how I have c installed.

Requires libproto, which has been replaced by xorgproto. The dependency can't be satisfied anymore! :(

Could you please update dependencies?

xorg-server-devel doesn't seem to fulfill make requirements, I had to add xorg-server so check passed. Then I noticed my frame package didn't had "oif/frame_x11.h" (so went there and also recompiled it with xorg-server).

Please, could you fix both of them?

This does not require a makedepends on pixman, but does require one on xorg-server to build in a clean container (as with the frame package).

You should add pixman to makedepends, that is required for successful build in clean chroot.

@kiralex thanks for reporting, PKGBUILD updated

there is a warning in geis code, so the code won't compile. I made a quick fix. I just add the -Wno-error flag to avoir warning making error. I know, it is a bad practice when developping in C, but I didn't want to modify the source code of geis. here is my modified PKGBUILD :

Comment by bulletmark on old AUR: Here's an updated PKGBUILD for this package that downloads the 2.2.16 source, applies a patch for this bug from the geis Ubuntu launchpad project, and then builds the Arch package. Get it from It solves the problem with compilation described bellow: geis_logging.h:56:39: error: ISO C does not support '__FUNCTION__' predefined identifier [-Werror=pedantic]

I had a problem with compiling due to lack of 'oif/frame_x11.h'. I already had 'xorg-xinput' installed. But... simple re-installation of grail and frame helped out. Unfortunately, I couldn't catch cause of a problem

Successfully compiled v2.2.17. Simply replace "source= ...blablabla... .tar.gz" to "source= ...blablabla... .tar.xz" and the "md5sums=('550c78b5185b835b80dba14537c2c83d'" to "md5sums=('2ff9d76a3ea5794516bb02c9d1924faf'". Everything woks like a charm.
