I get an error when updating to the latest yay package:

CMake Error at /usr/lib/cmake/Qt5/Qt5Config.cmake:28 (find_package):
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5LinguistTools"
  with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5LinguistTools" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or
  set "Qt5LinguistTools_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
  files.  If "Qt5LinguistTools" provides a separate development package or
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.

@kyechou Problem resolved.

Hi @yuezk, yes, exactly! Thanks @zayatura for the explanation.

What do you mean by providing 'globalprotect-openconnect'? Should I need to add 'globalprotect-openconnect' into the provides field?

The guidelines gives an example on this ( "Include what the package conflicts with and provides (e.g. for fluxbox-git: conflicts=('fluxbox') and provides=('fluxbox'))."

This helps pacman or an AUR helper know that in case the user installs or a package requires "globalprotect-openconnect", there are multiple packages and can, for example, give a prompt.

Hi @kyechou, I will migrate it to pull the code from the Git repo.

And this package is for the purpose of the snapshot version, so it's not that stable. It wasn't intended to be used by normal users widely. For most of the users, it is recommended to use the community version:

On top of what @togusa's patch, this extra diff also creates a better versioning for a git package:

 pkgver() {
-    cd $srcdir/$_pkgname-*/
+    cd $srcdir/$_pkgname/
+    printf "%s" "$(git describe --long | sed 's/\([^-]*-\)g/r\1/;s/-/./g')"

Hi @yuezk, the script still doesn't seem to be pulling from the Git repository. Perhaps you'd like to check out Also, the package should probably provide 'globalprotect-openconnect'.

yuezk commented on 2022-03-02 14:00 (UTC)

@kyechou Will do.
