I'm disowning this package for someone who uses it regularly to adopt.

Example files changed recently, needed following change to package properly:

When people have set CARGO_TARGET_DIR it will compile into that folder and the build will fail. A easy fix is to add --target-dir target at the end of the cargo invocation

That will make in that instance to put the target dir in the expected location

libdbus and pkgconfig are also a dependecy of this.

This package is not outdated since it builds from git master and there's no need to update the build or package sections because there weren't any changes in packaging.?

@enricostn This package is made for official archlinux rust package that's why it has makedepends for rust. If you're using rustup then you'll have to build the package manually.

  1. Clone the i3status-rust upstream repo and cd into it

  2. Then run ~/.cargo/bin/cargo build --release (I think this is where rustup install the binaries) and this should produce the binary file in target/release/i3status-rs

  3. Put that file somewhere where you have exported path, ~/bin or something

Hi, I installed rust using

But I'm still getting:

$ makepkg ==> Making package: i3status-rust-git 0.9.0.r634.g79b0ea2-1 (Sun 14 Apr 2019 05:44:21 PM CEST) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Missing dependencies: -> rust ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

Rust works as expected for everything else but compiling this package. Any hint? Thanks!
