Your source points to a gitorious page which hasn't had any activity in 9 months.
How about updating the PKGBUILD to use
source=('git://' ...

A cool trick to avoid "$pkgname"::'git:// is to use cd ${pkgname%-git} in pkgver(), prepare(), build() and package(). ;)

@salantrax Added.
@bwrsandman Thanks! Your PKGBUILD helped me to update it.

Builds and runs flawlessly on armv7h; request to add 'armv7h' to arch=().

Here's a PKGBUILD which conforms to the VCS and GNOME packaging standards.

- Sets the version properly
- Fetches from git using makepkg
- Replaced the patch with sed commands
- Formatting for readability

Updated, patched source code to use python2, added new dependencies and improvind PKGBUILD according to Arch's standards.

Please patch $srcdir/$_gitname-build/src/guake file to use python2 instead of python.
You're currently only patching the guake-prefs file in that same directory, so /usr/bin/guake still needs editing after installation/upgrade as per aricart's 2012-11-23 comment.

Also, patching with sed is somewhat unreliable - you should maybe use diff+patch instead :)

This PKGBUILD is working, if you can't compile due to automake 1.13 detection, it's not a problem of this package it's a problem with gnome-common, you can check this bug at: and the solution to fix it in here:

Are you alive?

add guake to the list of conflicts.

hav3lock commented on 2013-02-14 20:22

this can be built using automake-1.12 (AUR). Just run:

$ packer -S automake-1.12 && packer -S guake-git
