Updated PKGBUILD with aichingm's help. His credits were updated.

BTW, I've maintaining this PKGBUILD for 10 years!! :D

@Skatox We changed some parts of the Makefile to simplify the build process for non debian/ubuntu systems, now one need only to run "make build && make install ...".

I updated my PKGBUILD: which builds just fine.

I'm having problems to compile this version, according to the author, some manual intervetion will be fixed on version 3.1. I'm waiting for that to update the package.

Getting an error: Error opening directory “/home/mario/.cache/pacaur/guake-git/pkg/guake-git/usr/local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/guake/data/”: No such file or directory

"...usr/local/lib..." should be "...usr/lib..."

sed is not needed just use 'make install-system INSTALL_ROOT="$pkgdir/" PREFIX="$pkgdir/usr/"' this also fixes the build error.

Also guake is now full python3 so python2-* deps should be dropped.

BIG THANKS for including me as contributor! just one little thing there is an "a" missing in my email (aichingm@g...)

After upstream update to 3.0 compilation hangs on:
