Thanks for the patch. I've applied your changes.

Can you please install CMakeLists.txt to /usr/src/gmock? There are some programs that can't build without that file. The modified PKGBUILD would look something like this:

I didn't find something like pull requests here, so I just copy-pasted the diff.

I cannot download it with yaourt, and view PKGBUILD fails

Orphaned as I no longer use this.

This package should be resubmitted with mkaurball. See

When I get a chance (probably a bit later in the week) I'll package up 1.7.0.

@roadnottaken: I've disowned this package because I don't really use it anymore. Feel free to adopt and modify it :)

roadnottaken commented on 2013-09-14 21:22

gtest upstream recommends compiling gtest (and by extension gmock) for each project, rather than precompiling as a shared library (see To allow this, could you please modify the PKGBUILD to also install either src/*.cc or fused-src/*.cc into /usr/src/gmock/src/ ? This follows the convention set by the gtest package in community. Note that src includes only gmock sources, while fused-src combines all source files for gmock and gtest (except for the main() function) into a single file.

lpapp commented on 2013-07-20 09:53

I wonder why this package is not yet in the community repository?

@jumpfunky: coreutils is part of the base group. According to the Arch Wiki, the packages in the base and base-devel groups should be installed before installing any AUR package.

Dependency: coreutils >= 8.16 is needed!
With coreutils 8.15 /usr/bin/install cant be found

Updated to latest version. Thanks to Ubuntu packagers for patches and build commands.

google test has disabled "make install" in order to reduce their support costs. See They recommend that each user download and build it with their own compiler settings. It would be easy to patch it to enable global installs again, and I think Arch users are savvy enough to recompile it when needed, but that would be subverting the upstreams' wishes, so I will also stop supporting google mock as a package.

ablakok commented on 2010-11-02 00:15

Done. Thanks.

Cant build after the python3 upgrade. Python scripts in the source need to be changed. Should have interpreter as python2
