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:

@lordcriswat: The package includes the patches and the PKGBUILD uses the officiall sources from "". No mirror servers are used by the PKGBUILD itself! Probably your PACMAN has already trouble with fullfilling the dependencies from officiall mirrors of Archlinux, if so '/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist" is your place to go. Sometimes downloaded tarballs are damaged, in this case you can try to remove it from '/var/cache/pacman/pkg'.

@universegears: Thanks! I'm just use gift wrapping paper and make it easier. Nice words make live more pleasant :)

It works perfectly.

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 I got around the outdated vte3 problem by installing the vte3-git package instead.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.

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.
