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 I got around the outdated vte3 problem by installing the vte3-git package instead.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

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?

Hi,
I have the following error:

configure: error: Package requirements (vte-2.91 >= 0.48.2
glib-2.0 >= 2.42.0
gio-2.0 >= 2.34.0
gtk+-3.0 >= 3.12.0
gsettings-desktop-schemas >= 0.1.0
dconf >= 0.14.0
uuid
libpcre2-8 >= 10.00
x11) were not met:

Requested 'vte-2.91 >= 0.48.2' but version of vte is 0.46.1

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.

No problem. I've also learned something :)

@hoschi Curiously enough I did not have pkg-config installed anymore although I do have the base-devel group installed of course. Must've been removed with another package I uninstalled. I did not think about it being a devel package when posting this here. Sorry, my fault then :)

It was already clear no me but nice yet elaborately explained answer. I think this should help others well :)

Hello SunRed! You are alive :)
I'm think everything should working automatically and your generally right. So I thought that the package 'pkg-config' has to be part of base-devel and it is. Furthermore adding single packages from 'base-devel' doesn't make much sense, so I thought adding 'base-devel' would make more sense (gcc, make, autotools, patch...). But the Wiki states that 'base-devel' should be generally installed on machines which are using 'makepkg' and packages from 'base-devel' shouldn't be part of makedepends and checkdepends. So this seems to be intended by Archlinux and explains why the offical package also doesn't include pkg-config or base-devel.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#makedepends
'Note: The group base-devel is assumed to be already installed when building with makepkg. Members of this group should not be included in makedepends array.'

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Usage
'Before continuing, install the base-devel group. Packages belonging to this group are not required to be listed as build-time dependencies (makedepends) in PKGBUILD files. In addition, the base group is assumed to be installed on all Arch systems.'
