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.

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

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

I will wait until this project has compatibility with automake 1.3 (latest from archlinux) to update the PKGBUILD

you need to add python2-xdg to dep and patch for python2

Guake doesn't start for me with the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/guake", line 24, in <module>
import pygtk
ImportError: No module named 'pygtk'

I had to edit /usr/bin/guake to point to python2 instead of python.

Updated, changed python dependicies to support latest changes (python2-notify and python2-dbus), and now it compiles even if there are some warnings.
