When building this package i had the problem described in this bug post and solved it by adding export PYTHONPATH="/usr/share/glib-2.0".

Since I no longer intend to use distributions with systemd for personal use,
I will abandon this package no earlier than 2015-09-01.
Should someone be interested in maintaining this package afterwards,
he or she can contact me in the interim to become co-maintainer
and then sole maintainer once I leave, to ensure a smooth transition.

Initial AUR4 import.

cyrevolt: Should work now, but you'll still need to disable NM and remove it from the dependencies if you don't want it.

Sadly this package is a bit out of date now - but yeah, here's some fixes needed to build properly:

The git command needs to work recursively, otherwise files will be missing, i.e.:

git clone --recursive "${_gitroot}" "${_gitname}"

And since not everyone is using NetworkManager (me e.g. ^^), it should be easy to quickly edit the configure flags from the PKGBUILD.

To disable nm, e.g., I had to change it to:

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-systemd-input --disable-nm-input

I'll rewrite the PKGBUILD when I'm through with reading the packages standards Wiki page. =)

You'd need to go to the j4tstatus project for that, not the packager, but here is what I can find ad hoc:
The manuals:
The j4tools IRC channel: irc://
i3's manual section on how to use different status commands (such as jtstatus):

Is it possible to have a configuration example ? I didn't managed to configure it to work with my i3 config.
