Can you add

check() {
    cd "$srcdir/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
    cargo test

patched the default path instead, so it works swell without the desktop file as well :^)

The desktop file needs to be modified since gnvim is installed in /usr. The Exec needs to be changed for it to load its own runtime files:

Exec=/usr/bin/gnvim --gnvim-rtp /usr/share/gnvim/runtime -- %F

@trevdev: submitted a couple of patches upstream to fix these issues, if they get merged our problems are solved.

Just a heads up, the .desktop reference is broken on install as well as the icon reference. At least, for me it is.

location: /usr/share/applications/gnvim.desktop

Contents [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=GNvim Exec=/home/<user redacted>/.cache/yay/gnvim-git/pkg/gnvim-git//usr/bin/gnvim -- %F Icon=gnvim.png Terminal=false

Both the Exec/Icon settings seem incorrect. I fixed this manually with the last version but it broke again after updating.

done, thanks for feedback :^)

Please change line 29 of PKGBUILD to

make PREFIX="/usr" DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install

to install under /usr instead of /usr/local
