Thanks, I fixed that issue with the latest commit.

How are you building these. None of the source tarballs have in the root directory (but they do in src), so the "autoconf" line in prepare() fails after the "cd src" line was commented out.

Need to add gawk and libxt to depends=() now.

Checking gvim-gtk2-8.0.0604-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
gvim-gtk2 W: .INSTALL file runs a command provided by hooks.
gvim-gtk2 W: Referenced library 'csh' is an uninstalled dependency
gvim-gtk2 E: Dependency libxt detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/vim'])
gvim-gtk2 E: Dependency gawk detected and not included (programs ['gawk'] needed in scripts ['usr/share/vim/vim80/tools/mve.awk'])
gvim-gtk2 W: Dependency python detected but optional (programs ['python'] needed in scripts ['usr/share/vim/vim80/tools/'])
gvim-gtk2 W: Dependency hicolor-icon-theme included but already satisfied
gvim-gtk2 W: Dependency gtk-update-icon-cache included but already satisfied

Thank you for the package! (I hate gtk3.)

Fixed, sorry I should have figured it out sooner. I build gvim-gtk2 in the Open Build Service (OBS) and that PKGBUILD has libxt as a makedepend already

bidulock commented on 2017-05-04 07:18

Another chroot problem. You need to add "libxt" to makedepends, otherwise the configure script thinks that it can't build a gui (checks for X11/X.h and X11/Intrinsic.h).

PKGBUILD is getting gvim.desktop from one directory above $srcdir and so will not build in a chroot. The command

install -Dm644 ../gvim.desktop ....

is being executed from $srcdir. Please changed to

install -Dm644 gvim.desktop ....


install -Dm644 "${srcdir}"/gvim.desktop ....

You're welcome, 'tis fairly easy for me as I have written this shell script (automatically loaded on shell startup as it is referenced in my ~/.zshrc file): All I need to do to update this package and a few other packages of mine at GitHub is issue the command 'vimup'.

Just wanted to say thanks for always keeping this up-to-date, even with upstream's crazy release schedule…
