You've been right, it was an error on my side. My AUR management tool seem to have used an outdated PKGBUILD file. After clearing the caches everything went fine.

I was sure I had checked that and also that I've tried to build the package manually with the latest PKGBUILD, but obviously I didn't do that.

I am really sorry for any inconveniences my actions may have caused.

Regarding the "recommended build instructions": I just meant the build instructions on ddterm's GitHub page. I didn't want to say that arch-meson is broken or not recommended anymore...

make: *** No rule to make target 'build'. Stop.

PKGBUILD doesn't run make since 21.01.2024. Have you tried git pull before building?

I was able to build the package after I've adopted the PKGBUILD file to the recommended build instruction:

What is "recommended build instruction"? Does some Arch guide discourage use of arch-meson now?

For me, the current PKGBUILD works fine.

Update: The following error was just caused by an outdated PKGBUILD. No patch needs to be applied.

The build process seem to have changed and thus building the package is currently failing with the following message:

make: *** No rule to make target 'build'.  Stop.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I was able to build the package after I've adopted the PKGBUILD file to the recommended build instruction:

All good now, thanks!

letorbi commented on 2023-10-25 15:18 (UTC)

@e-v The error seems to be fixed with the latest upstream commit.

Gnome 45 support has just been merged into master, so this should not be flagged out-of-date anymore.


However, I now get the following error when trying to enable the extension:

GLib.FileError: Failed to open file “/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/”: open() failed: No such file or directory

@amezin Now that morealaz has disowned the package, you are the sole maintainer. If you are not happy with this, I would be available to jump in as a co-maintainer or full maintainer.

The master branch it not compatible with GNOME 45, which is the current version of GNOME in the official Arch package repositories.

However, there is a gnome45 branch, which contains the necessary changes to make this extension work with GNOME 45. It would be great, if this package would be based on the gnome45 branch, until the master branch is compatible with GNOME 45 as well. Only one line has to be changed to achieve this:

I've marked this extension as out-of-date to reflect that work needs to be done to be compatible with the official packages again.

zip dependency is not necessary with system-wide/DESTDIR 'make install' - files are directly installed into correct locations. No packing/unpacking happens.

morealaz commented on 2022-11-16 11:33 (UTC)

@amezin: Thanks. I fixed PKGBUILD and made you co-maintainer of the package.
