Cheers for the quick update. I'm not sure it warranted a pkgrel bump, but I doubt it'd cause too much inconvenience to people who already had 1.0.2-3.

That wiki article is wrong and completely out of date. You do not need to include .AURINFO anywhere in the PKGBUILD. Just use an ordinary PKGBUILD and use mkaurball to build the source tarball.

@WorMzy Please see

Why is '.AURINFO' in the sources array?

If get an error like

/usr/bin/ld: hsetroot.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XSetWindowBackgroundPixmap'
/usr/lib/ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status


LDFLAGS="-lX11" in front of ./configure

Can't update hsetroot.
hsetroot-1.0.2.tar.gz download fail.

Looks like the site's been flaky for a while. For anyone interested, someone cloned the source to github:

eigengrau: The maintenance message has been there for at least 4 weeks. Also, the maintainer does not reply to emails (tried to contact him ~3 weeks ago).

silent: Thanks for coming up with this. Will talk to Eric.
