Applied that patch (the third portion failed so I manually added it in the prepare section) and did a makepkg -si. Ended up with this error:

Cloning into '/tmp/glava-git/src/glava/glad'... fatal: transport 'file' not allowed fatal: clone of '/tmp/glava-git/src/glad' into submodule path '/tmp/glava-git/src/glava/glad' failed Failed to clone 'glad' a second time, aborting ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting...

The build is currently broken, though there is an unmerged pr to fix it. This change should fix this package by applying the pr's patch during preparation.

As reported by @tilktilk5 compilation fails in the glad submodule / external library. Haven't investigated why, however this is an optional library (for acceleration I believe). Interestingly, it's not mentioned in the documentation at all.

I've created an updated PKGBUILD which doesn't reference glad for the time being and also uses a fork with an additional compile fix:

Running makepkg -si fails, full output:

Needs meson as a dependency

When i install it and run it a transparent window showing to me! why?

@erikdubois: Update - An issue with the upstream Makefile was found that would cause the build to fail like you described when XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is set in your environment, i have submitted a patch upstream. Additionally, i suggest building your packages in a clean env to avoid issues like this.

@erikdubois: Cannot reproduce. Build system & built package look normal. You'll have to provide me with some more info & logs.

Installing glava I get a directory in my root with the name "DG_CONFIG_DIR" with glava and its folders and files inside. I think you want it to go to /etc/xdg... Could you look into it? glava -C does not work since there is no glava folder in /etc/xdg
