I tried some things and was able to reproduce the issue by manually corrupting the cache folder. I have no idea how this might happen without manual interference, but removing it with rm -rf .cache/yay/josm-latest helped, because it forces yay to re-download (and not just update) all sources.

I'm afraid I can't help you without further details (e.g. relevant error messages from the logs), since I'm not able to reproduce the problem. Maybe your logs contain some useful information enabling you to debug the problem a bit.

I have subversion installed and this still happens.

Make sure you have the package subversion installed, which provides the svn command for yay to download the sources, which contain the desktop files. There's already an issue for this, because the makedepends list is actually evaluated too late:

If you have subversion installed, then maybe the logs show some other helpful messages on what went wrong?

I had the same problem as @ianioc when trying to install via yay -S josm-latest. I got:

==> Starting package()...
install: cannot stat 'josm/native/linux/tested/usr/share/applications/org.openstreetmap.josm.desktop': No such file or directory

Indeed, ~/.cache/yay/josm-latest/src/josm was empty. Maybe it has something to do with how yay handles SVN?

In any case, installing via makepkg + pacman worked fine.

Thanks for maintaining, @hauke96! I'm not experienced with these matters. Do you think this warrants a bug report at yay?

@ianioc Sorry, but the desktop file is already part of the installation and it works on my machine: Please verify that your system uses that path correctly, if you can't find entries in menus or such. I'm not using a desktop environment with search menus and I'm not using .desktop files, so I'm afraid I can't really test this. This package uses the same installation-mechanism as the official "josm" package, is it working there?

missing josm/native/linux/tested/usr/share/applications/org.openstreetmap.josm.desktop

@dreieck Sure and you're welcome :)

Can you please add provides=("josm=$pkgver")?

Thanks for maintaining!

@jronald I'm not related to the official packages in any way. Feel free to contact the respective maintainer or create a pull request in their code base.
