OK I understand. However, the pkgver function need to be updated by replacing it with this code :

pkgver() {
    cd "$srcdir/Gitso"
        # hardcoded version + _ + date of last commit as YYYYMMDD
        echo -n "${gitsover}_"
        git log -1 --date=format:%Y%m%d --format=%cd

And the depends line by :

depends=('iproute2' 'python2-wxpython3' 'x11vnc' 'tigervnc' 'python2-setuptools')

I was no longer the maintainer of this package but I took the role again with hopes of actually taking a look at gitso and see if I can fix it - I loved using it but since people can stream displays using Discord and even chrome I stopped using it. I will at least try to make time for updating the PKGBUILD a bit as it is outdated but I can not promise I get much done right away - I have loads of stuff going on.

I verified it and the latest git commit is still from 2015, it is more up to date than 0.6.2 from 2012 so it should not be flagged as out-of-date (the reason things are looking newer in the debian repo is that it has been repackaged recently). The software has not been updated in five years so stuff are bound to break.

I have a strange error on my side when a customer give me access to their computer from Gitso : "Invalid PixelBuffer height of 23760 pixels requested" The issue occurs from several customers.

I didn't find any info on the web about this error, but by looking on the Gitso repository, I have found a new one with a new maintainer :

It's look like the more up to date Gitso version (0.6.2) However, I didn't find the way to install it by editing pkgbuild file because the pkgver function doesn't return a correct result... I have flagged this package as outdated if khampf has time to have a look :)

I needed to install python2-setuptools for it to run.

@Salamandar: I see spelling errors in the desktop file (written before I got involved). I will update it using your entries, thanks!

After a lot of changes and tries, this file shows in my menu with the icon :

Ahah would be great !
BTW is Gitso showing in your Apps list ? Not in mine. I'm trying to figure why but no success…

No problem, it's just that when it got flagged as out of date I got excited about the possibility of a new release :)
