FYI upstream removed the script:

Changed the upstream URL to pull the skrewball fork now.

Taijian commented on 2022-04-13 18:28 (UTC)

I'd vote in favor of keeping this thing alive and simply pointing it at the new fork!

No need to clutter the AUR even more by keeping a dead project around and then adding a new version... (IMHO)

This project was abandoned by its original author. There is a newly maintained fork here

Not sure if you want to update the repo, or if we should create a new gnome-shell-extension-openweather-2-git AUR package.

I know upstream seems to be dead, however this does still seem to work on gnome 41 (mostly).

I was able to get my location working by editing the default location to use my coordinates, then changing the name. ymmv

Also, should gnome-icon-theme be added as an optional dependency?

lopasilver commented on 2021-12-27 15:36 (UTC)

Hi, As mentioned by Taijian on 2021-01-30, gnome-icon-theme package should be installed if one wants the icons to appears ;-)

Taijian commented on 2021-12-06 15:02 (UTC)

@mschu: Well, it does compile and it can then be enabled. However, the dialogue to add or edit locations seems to be borked for me :(

Also, I sadly think that upstream is well and truely dead at this point, so I'll disown this and move on...

mschu commented on 2021-12-06 10:45 (UTC)

Amending the line in metadata.json

"shell-version": [ "40", "41", "41.1" ],

Makes this extension work with the current gnome-shell.

jtts commented on 2021-09-29 17:38 (UTC)

Unfortunately I'm currently unable to maintain this package, so I'm orphaning it.

Feel free to take up maintaining it.

jkoelker commented on 2021-06-06 03:49 (UTC)

A Gnome 40 compatible version has been pushed to the gnome40 branch upstream:

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-02-01 16:02 (UTC)

Please fix the dependencies:

makedepends=('git' 'gnome-common')

Note: Packages in the AUR assume that the base-devel group is installed, i.e. they do not list the group's members as build dependencies explicitly.

Taijian commented on 2021-01-30 10:53 (UTC)

Hi there,

I just noticed that the weather icons are broken unless the following package is also installed: community/gnome-icon-theme

Maybe you could add that one as a depends to this package? Thank you!

If you want to fix this PKGBUILD you should to change all the URLs in it to:

Baraclese commented on 2018-09-09 22:32 (UTC)

Can't build the github version: uk.po:322:22: syntax error uk.po:323: keyword "msgstr_plural" unknown uk.po:838: end-of-line within string uk.po:878: missing 'msgstr' section /usr/bin/msgfmt: found 4 fatal errors The gitlab version fixes this error.

JamieMagee commented on 2018-07-16 13:25 (UTC)

@jtts: The git repo has been moved to Gitlab

jtts commented on 2017-12-05 16:27 (UTC)

@zfkerr: Sorry for the delay in my reply. ArchLinux VCS Package Guidelines [1] state that increasing PKGREL is only necessary when something changes in the PKGBUILD itself (dependencies, URL, sources, etc), not when there is a new version available.

Unflagging the package.


zfkerr commented on 2017-10-23 22:41 (UTC)

@jtts, could you please every time a new version is released to increase pkgrel so that updates happen automatically by executing the yaourt -Syua command?

jtts commented on 2017-10-21 01:19 (UTC)

Unflagging package. @zfkerr: This is an git-package that uses the development master branch. It does not need to be updated when new version is released. You simply recompile the package, it updates it automatically.

jtts commented on 2015-10-13 15:39 (UTC)

Can't find anything wrong with this package. Unflagging it. If you find something wrong with this package, please post a comment and explain in detail where you experience problems.

jtts commented on 2015-04-23 19:53 (UTC)

@magicfish1990: I don't have any problems to building the package. Can you be more specific? What changes were necessary?

magicfish1990 commented on 2015-04-23 19:03 (UTC)

@jtts: Because I need modify PKGBUILD to build.

jtts commented on 2015-04-23 13:01 (UTC)

@justin8: I checked the project home page and there were no version requirements for gnome-common. There weren't any version requirements on Neroth's extension's homepage either. So I guess gnome-common should also work OK. I'll update the package accordingly. @magicfish1990: Why the out-of-date flag?

justin8 commented on 2015-04-23 11:56 (UTC)

Is it possible to make this depend on gnome-common? or is there something particularly only in the git version that is required at the moment?

jtts commented on 2014-11-10 19:42 (UTC)

Package version should now follow the guidelines.

justin8 commented on 2014-10-21 22:23 (UTC)

Please make this package follow the VCS pkgbuild guidelines; currently the version does not reflect what it actually is, and building a new one is not recognized by pacman since it never gets updated.

jtts commented on 2014-06-01 12:10 (UTC)

@justin8: Fixed the URLs. Thanks!

justin8 commented on 2014-05-31 16:24 (UTC)

Your URL and the post-install script both reference the weather project, and not the openweather one that it uses for the git source.
