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…

@mnyolt making it depend on extra/vim-runtime would be a problem as the extra/vim-runtime package is nearly always outdated so it is for an older version of vim than this package provides. As for your other requests I will see to them.

mnyolt commented on 2016-10-24 12:36

Could you please add the same archlinux.vim and system vimrc as the extra/vim-runtime package? As it is now, there is no advanced backspace (try "axx<ESC>a<BS>") and the ruler option is not set.
It would also be nice if gvim-gtk2 could depend on extra/vim-runtime. This would get all the above for free and increase compatibility with extra/gvim.

@Alad Sure and done.
