@dvzrv Thanks for pointing out to uncomment the vim plugin installation. Is fixed now. I added also emacs and vim as optional dependencies.

@ptrv: Thx for following up on my suggestion regarding moving in $pkgdir!
What about the vim plugins though? ;-)
Is there any reason to leave their move commented?
I've tried and tested this with current vim and it gets picked up flawlessly.

btw: You can add emacs and vim to optdepends for integrational purposes.

@ptrv: Can you also add the vim plugins at their system-wide destinations, please?
I suggest moving within $pkgdir though, as it is mostly the cleaner approach (will show up properly in pacman's listing of the package's files):

install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags.el" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/gtags.el"
install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags.vim" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin/gtags.vim"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags-cscope.vim" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin/gtags-cscope.vim"

This way vim will pick them up automagically.

@lilydjgw Install file is removed.

lilydjwg commented on 2016-05-07 11:23

The install file is no longer needed as Pacman supports hooks now.

@blueyed Added global patch to use lid-idutils executable

blueyed commented on 2016-04-06 11:10

`lid` from idutils in Arch is installed as `idutils-lid` (

There does not appear to be a `--with-idutils(-lid)` option (should be proposed upstream probably?!) to specify the non-default location.
For now, global could be patched in Arch to use the `idutils-lid` program/location?

+1 on changing python2 to python (remove dependency and udpate to python-pygments). It just works and eliminates the python2 requirement.

eagletmt commented on 2016-01-11 02:20

Please add python2 to the makedepends array.
python2 is required to make the package.

Pity this isn't an official package anymore, as gtags seems to be superior to ctags in every respect.
