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:

Hello abdulhakeem! Seems like upstream has bumped the requirement from “0.52.0“ to “0.52.2“. The official package from Archlinux requires only “0.52.0”, maybe I should raise it for my package. Generally I like to keep it aligned to the official one.

Your fix: pacman -Syu

The Archlinux maintainers have provided vte-0.52.2 around 34 hours ago, with an up-to-date installation you cannot hit that problem.

I'm not able to update to the latest version (2018-5-22), error output below:


Requested 'vte-2.91 >= 0.52.2' but version of vte is 0.52.1

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables TERM_CFLAGS and TERM_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... :: failed to build gnome-terminal-transparency package(s)

Hello recolic! I've changed a detail in the package and it therefore uses directly the GNU-Autotools, which it didn't before. Please install the the package group 'base-devel'[1] which is a requirement[2] for using AUR. This should fix your problem[3].

There're some missed make dependencies: autoconf, automake.

Add them to make dependency plz....

@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?

hoschi commented on 2017-12-08 20:16

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.
