@rien333 fixed, unfortunately the developer started to use 'nightly' tag release

rien333 commented on 2021-09-24 08:24

@FabioLolix: using the string "nightly" in pkgver isn't really working out for me — for whatever reason, yay thinks kitty-git is always outdated now (i.e. the past week). Perhaps remove it again, since it adds little information anyway?

furo is another sphinx package (python-sphinx-furo), I have added all makedepends at the moment.

I have tried to chroot build without python-sphinx like the community package but the build fails

After attempting to install all of the sphinx dependencies based on the error messages, I get the following error about some theme not being found:

sphinx.errors.ThemeError: no theme named 'furo' found (missing theme.conf?)

Theme error:
no theme named 'furo' found (missing theme.conf?)

I think this now needs community/sphinx_inline_tabs and aur/python-sphinx-copybutton to build without errors (+even more sphinx packages).

Or at least to build the docs - but do we need (all) the docs anyway?

pkgbuild have been updated, it would have been more useful if you tried to build my pkgbuild without glfw-x11 in chroot

I tried with the dependencies from Arch's official kitty package in a clean build:

depends=('python3' 'freetype2'  'fontconfig' 'wayland' 'libx11' 'libxkbcommon-x11' 'libxi'
         'hicolor-icon-theme' 'libgl' 'libcanberra' 'dbus' 'lcms2')
makedepends=('libxinerama' 'libxcursor' 'libxrandr' 'wayland-protocols' 'python-sphinx')

with extra makedepends: git and python-setuptools.

Did not need glfw-x11 nor glfw-wayland.

Edit: I think one key is libxi, which provides the required header files /usr/include/X11/extensions/XInput2.h. With libxi, then there's no need for glfw-x11. libxi is also listed in the dependencies from upstream:

FabioLolix commented on 2021-03-11 21:28

glfw-x11 is needed at build time, you can try it yourself.

pychuang commented on 2021-03-10 22:47

It seems kitty's source code comes with its own fork of glfw. And it links against that bundled glfw. So I think there's no need to put glfw-x11 in the makedepends. Besides, glfw-x11 conflicts with glfw-wayland.

if you came across this

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
kitty-terminfo: /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm-kitty exists in filesystem (owned by kitty-git)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

just remove the file /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm-kitty by

sudo rm -f /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm-kitty

and try installing again.
