Hi! This is less invasive than gnome-terminal-fedora[1], because it doesn't include the notify-feature. Therefore you can stay with the regular vte and vte-common! To fullfill the makedepends you probably need to install the packages 'itstool docbook-xsl appdata-tools yelp-tools', they can be removed when makepkg was executed successfully. Please ensure that you have installed the package group 'base-devel', which is a requirement to use AUR.

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:

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.'

Package fails build process without pkg-config package. Would be nice if you add it to makedepends.

Upgrade on 3.24.1 is available :)

hoschi commented on 2016-11-08 12:30

I will try to care about the new update on 3.22.1 this week.
Maybe I can use the regular source-tarball from upstream instead of git. This will make the build faster and remove a make-dependency.

// edit
Done.

PS: Git is really great! It is just not necessary in this case.

hoschi commented on 2016-10-20 18:31

You can upgrade now :)
Please note: Currently you need "git" as make-dependency.

lucifermstar commented on 2016-10-19 18:34

Any updates on the upgrade?

hoschi commented on 2016-10-17 07:35

I didn't forget it. I'm looking forward to care about the upgrade this week.
