This is less invasive than gnome-terminal-fedora[1], because it doesn't include the notify-feature. Therefore you can just stay with the regular vte and vte-common! To satisfy the makedepends you need probably to install the packages 'itstool docbook-xsl appdata-tools yelp-tools'. You can remove this packages after makepkg was executed successfully.
Top: Workaround with devilspie, fore- and background are transparent.
Bottom: Background transparency with gnome-terminal, better readability.

For those who want the notfiy-feature and some other minor changes, look here:

Hi! I'm trying to build this package but is down, or at least i get a time out error.

How can i make it so if a mirror is down makepkg tries again in a different one instead o cancelling the whole thing?

EDIT: I manually downloaded the tar, checked sha256sum, extracted it to ./src and deleted the source link and sha256sum from PKGBUILD. However, for future reference, isn't it there a way to go to the next mirror automatically?

I can just guess, but it clearly states that the downloaded sources for gnome-terminal are not valid. Probably they are really ditched? So I would delete 'gnome-terminal-3.26.2.tar.xz' (our just delete everything there) and start over again.

Please install the package group ‘base-devel’. It is an implicit requirement for using AUR and includes GCC, PATCH and so on.

Hi Branchard,

I'm running Manjaro, not arch, but I received the same error message. I got around the outdated vte3 problem by installing the vte3-git package instead.

After installing vte3-git, the gnome-terminal-transparency update installed without problem.

I hope this helps you.


branchard commented on 2017-04-27 23:44

Ok Thank you, that works fine !

hoschi commented on 2017-04-27 21:35

In this case you will likely need the old PKGBUILD for 3.22, instead of the current one for 3.24:

I'm looking forward, that this will solve your problem. Probably the internals from gnome-terminal need 3.24 and use some internal number like 'vte-2.91' for the API-Version.

branchard commented on 2017-04-27 20:42

Yea I'm using Gnome 3.22. I'm not able to update vte3 to 0.48, the lastest version on my repos is the 0.46.1.

hoschi commented on 2017-04-27 19:13

Hmm. Awkward error-message! Can you do me a favor and upgrade your vte3 on the current release 0.48. At least, this indicates, you are still using GNOME 3.22. Right?
