If I'm not mistaken I think perf should be added to the list of dependencies of this package. Without perf, hotspot displays this error message when trying to record:

Please install perf before trying to record.

This is an arch-specific package:

file hotspot
hotspot: ELF 64-bit LSB pie executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/, BuildID[sha1]=e85908f11237a9bb6613c76e800a7f6759622e09, for GNU/Linux 4.4.0, stripped

So archs should be x86_64, see (I'd say for AUR packages it is also acceptable to add further archs such as i686 and aarch64 if the package is known to compile for those. However, one must not any if the resulting package contains arch specific contents.)

Can skip building the tests ? Since they're not run they can be skipped

I have updated the PKGBUILD to install the desktop file from upstream.

UPD: Apparently, already defines the desktop file, but this package doesn't include it. Why's that?

Hi! Could you please add the following desktop entry to the package?

$ cat com.kdab.hotspot.desktop
