this package broke xdg-desktop-portal here, something makes the xdg-desktop-portal service don't start anymore.

This works great! Seems like thumbnails work in chrome now, I appreciate all your hard work

It's fine if desktop icons are disabled, wallpaper is then displayed normally.

dudemanguy commented on 2021-04-18 15:08 (UTC)

People have reported issues with xfce and this patch before. Something to do with the glib thumbnail generation here causes problems with some part of xfce.

Mel commented on 2021-04-18 11:56 (UTC)

This patch causes XFCE4 desktop to display just a black background instead of wallpaper+icons. Anyone else having this issue?

Turns out it was a user error of sorts. Since I am on Manjaro and forgot I am on the "stable" branch on this box, I just happened to hit the brief window where the sysprof version in the Manjaro repo was just enough out of date to fail to compile. After installing the git version of sysprof from AUR the project compiled successfully. Apologies for wasting your time.

Erde commented on 2020-11-01 17:44 (UTC)

Could it have something to do wanting sysprof 4 even though the latest version is 3?

dudemanguy commented on 2020-11-01 17:26 (UTC)

That doesn't make sense. sysprof is a makedep of course and should be installed.

Build fails with: Run-time dependency sysprof-capture-4 found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake) Looking for a fallback subproject for the dependency sysprof-capture-4

Thanks a lot! Finally installs with no issue.

dudemanguy commented on 2019-04-21 00:23 (UTC)

I can't reproduce it. The installed-tests should be created after it compiles. I have no idea how that isn't happening for you. That makes me think there is perhaps a missing dependency somewhere. Fortunately, rm has the -f option so I can workaround this without deviating from upstream too much. I'm already skipping the tests, so one extra flag shouldn't hurt. Try it now. Should be fine.

Removing the package cache you mean deleting the cloned repos? Yeah, I deleted that and even cleared all my package cache with pacman -Scc. Git cloned a brand new one and the error still occurs when I run makepkg with -sirc arguments. Running -sir on another clone and going to .../usr/lib/ won't show a file or directory named installed-tests.

dudemanguy commented on 2019-04-20 14:58 (UTC)

Bizarre. That directory definitely does exist. Try removing the package cache and installing it again from scratch.

I get this error: "rm: cannot remove '~/glib2-patched-thumbnailer/pkg/glib2-patched-thumbnailer/usr/lib/installed-tests': No such file or directory" at the end of compiling. It refuses to install.

Your AUR helper and/or makepkg should tell you that glib2 conflicts with glib2-patched-thumbnailer and prompt you to remove glib2. After hitting yes, it'll replace it with glib2-patched-thumbnailer.

Edit: Because GNOME doesn't seem to properly redirect their repo, you may have to remove the glib2-patched-thumbnailer in your cache if you want to update in the future. At least I just encountered a case where this happened.

thanks, now it downloads and compiles. What is the instructions for removing "glib2" and installing new "glib2-patched-thumbnailer". "glib2" is the dependency for most packages. How to swap glib2?

EDIT: already done, pacman just asked me to swap packages, my error was clicking entern button, so I wrote "y" and then clicked enter.

dudemanguy commented on 2018-02-19 16:09 (UTC)

Ah thanks for that. GNOME moved to gitlab and it looks like the redirect from the old url doesn't work anymore, so I corrected that. Also like the gtk3-patched-filechooser-icon-view and gtk2-patched-filechooser-icon-view packages, I moved the patch inside the package. For those updating, please remove the glib-thumbnailer.patch file in your AUR's cache directory so it can be properly tracked and you can avoid errors.

Download fails.

All good now, thanks for the quick fix.

dudemanguy commented on 2017-10-16 16:50 (UTC) (edited on 2017-10-16 19:55 (UTC) by dudemanguy)

Sorry, I forgot to add meson as a dependency.

Since 2.54.1-2 glib2-patched-thumbnailer/PKGBUILD: line 64: arch-meson: command not found Missing build dependency?
