Thanks for the feedback, i'll update the PKGBUILD this weekend.

The git repo changed to:

and the url to:

E: and 1) "git-pull" should be "git pull", 2) gtk2 and glib2 should be dependencies, 3) this doesn't build even with "export PYTHON=python2" because of some problems with pkgconfig. I tried to manually copy the .h files from /usr/include to the build dir but it failed in the end because of some source errors.

This is so annoying. I _need_ that drop-down terminal. This is the only decent one (for me) and you cannot use it.

I was creating a better PKGBUILD and applied a patch to include correct library but now does a C error, i guess they haven't fixed this issue at guake's source code, so let's wait for new releases.

@mainiak, I'm not sure, but this may be related to python 2 vs 3 transition.

At 1st - there should be makedepends=('git' 'intltool' 'gnome-common')

2nd - I have this compile error:

globalhotkeys.c:21:20: fatal error: Python.h: No such file or directory

Any clue?

Thanks, M.

I got the following error after installing and trying to run...
"Guake can not init! Gconf Error. Have you installed guake.schemas properlly?"

I had to run this command to fix it...
gconftool-2 --install-schema-file=/usr/share/gconf/schemas/guake.schemas

Perhaps this should be added to an install file?

Please add 'pkgconfig' as dependency.
