Hi, just want to mention that there now also git version of this package. Just in case some of you want to live on the bleeding edge ;)

Hi, I took over the maintenance of this PKGBUILD.

I made a few little improvements to it and removed the .install script, since it had no other purpose than remind users to restart Gnome shell after installing/updating (remember to do it tho :p).

I also added the aarch64 architecture to the PKGBUILD since I could built the package successfully on it.

Hi, I've moved to XFCE. As such, I'm disowning this package.

It can be built as simple as following Meson package guidelines:

build() {
  arch-meson desktop-icons-ng-$pkgver build
  meson compile -C build

package() {
  meson install -C build --destdir "$pkgdir"

Hi, sorry for the errors, I've fixed it. Please comment if there's still anything wrong.

There are at least two errors in the PKGBUILD:

  1. Two typos in the source= line: ${_pkgver} is used instead of the correct ${pkgver}

  2. After fixing that, installation of the package fails with the error: "gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons-ng: /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled exists in filesystem".

It gives 404 error. URL is wrong after last update.

Failure while downloading

in PKGBUILD, pkgver variable's usage is wrong.
