To whom it may concern: please do not flag the package out-of-date because it's not working with the latest GNOME release. If the extension is not working, it doesn't mean it's out-of-date. The [latest version released[(https://github.com/GSConnect/gnome-shell-extension-gsconnect/releases/latest) is sometimes lagging behind so this PKGBUILD is strictly up-to-date even if the result is not working. As of GNOME 45, all of the extensions have been broken, please allow the developers time to update their project you like to use in your environment.

Hello,

The upcoming version of the GSConnect extension which supports Gnome 45 has added a code change that seems to require a new dependency.

You may see this error in your journal when attempting to run the extension.

JS ERROR: Error: Requiring EBook, version none: Typelib file for namespace 'EBook' (any version) not found  
@/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gsconnect@andyholmes.github.io/service/utils/setup.js:17:34  
@/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gsconnect@andyholmes.github.io/service/daemon.js:42:16

This seems to be caused by a missing Ebook-1.2.typelib file in /usr/lib/girepository-1.0, which is provided by the evolution-data-server package.

Without this typelib file, the server implementation won't start up, so you would only see a "Waiting for Connection" in the GSConnect window.

@postblue: Thank you for your effort.

I saw arash12ir's comment about v55 availability as the package was flagged out-of-date. In good faith, I thought it was a simple version bump as I had so many in the past. I changed the epoch to 2 so everyone can revert to v54.

@postblue: As others mentioned, v55 is only compatible with GNOME 44. See the metadata.json.in.

@chungy

Incompatible with which gnome package in extra repository?

Or you mean with version of gnome packages in general?

chungy commented on 2023-04-12 18:19 (UTC)

v55 isn't compatible with the version of GNOME in extra.

v55 is now available for download.

Notable changes & fixes:

  • add iOS App Store link into preferences-window.ui
  • Show transfered file in folder as default action of notification
  • Calculate a verification key that matches KDE/Android
  • Use addSettingsAction() to launch prefs
  • Keep service alive when locked
  • RunCommand Plugin: add default commands
  • Run Command Plugin: use systemctl for "Restart" and "Power Off" commands.
  • Input Component: allow remote input in lockscreen
  • Port to gnome 44
  • Set Quick Settings tile subtitle on GNOME 44

@AlynxZhou epoch version issued (never used it before, thanks for pointing it out), hope this works as intended now :)
