Looking at the commit history over at github (and specifically at the commit message here: it seems to me that the ubuntu branch is frozen to be updated in line with ubuntu version updates, while master is the actual development branch where regular updates to the code base happen.

So I think you should rebase to there, as this is a -git package, not a stable one.

Taijian, at the moment branch ubuntu corresponds to release, while the master remained at version 20

maybe I'm wrong

Taijian commented on 2017-10-16 10:25

Is there a reason why this is mirroring the 'ubuntu' branch and not the 'master' one? Master seems to be more frequently updated...

PKGBUILD should be updated--libappindicator3 does not exist (and seems to be unnecessary).

Which method of installation is preferred for this extension -- this AUR package or extensions.gnome web interface?

zman0900 commented on 2014-10-19 22:14

Dependencies say libappindicator{,3} but the names have changed to libappindicator-gtk{2,3}. So if you are using yaourt or similar like me and it fails to find dependencies, just install those first.

Also, FYI, this appears to work fine with gnome 3.14 as long as you modify the metadata.json file. You can add this to the pkgbuild before building until the dev updates the project:

prepare() {
cd "${srcdir}"/${pkgname%-*}
sed 's/"3.12"/"3.12", "3.14"/g' -i metadata.json

Am I correct in assuming that this pacakge is need to show dropbox, megasync, noise etc icons in topbar?

Is there any way to install this without them?

kaptoxic commented on 2014-06-07 23:46

Indeed I can confirm that removing either libappindicator or libappindicator3 makes the installation succeed. Nevertheless, this package should be fixed...

dfk commented on 2014-06-05 01:58

Ah I see. I remember running into a similar problem, and finagling some manual fix to it that I (of course) didn't take notes on at the time. You might always try removing one of the conflicting dependencies and seeing if you can successfully install this.

kaptoxic commented on 2014-06-04 20:13

yes, the package requires these libappindicator packages, but then conflict appears; so I agree, PKGBUILD itself is probably not the problem
so I was hoping for some workaround...
