plasma-framework-git is now a runtime only dependency to support several QML effects, and kwin is usable without those QML effects enabled. Hence plasma-framework-git should be an optional dependency. This would allow people to use kwin without anything plasma related.

Also missing lots of KF6 dependencies defined at

It's missing dependency on libdisplay-info and (it's different than kglobalaccel)

Hi @QuartzDragon

This issue has been debated a few times, and the main problem with using invent.kde is that the URLs are non-deterministic:

For instance, the plasma-desktop package can be found at "", while kwidgetsaddons is "".

Whereas with github it's always "$package" (with very few exceptions), with invent there's that additional prefix before the package name, which varies with the package and therefore cannot be account for using a script.

This means you would have to find and change the source for every single PKGBUILD manually. Since to my knowledge the github mirror is virtually identical to invent in every single way (apart from the URL, of course), I ended up going for that when we moved away from anongit.

Anyways, let me know what you think, I'm definitely open to reconsider :)

Please change upstream URL to

More consistent with the current state of the project :)

Thanks @zanny, fixed.

Besides kwayland-server-git which I just put up qt5-sensors is an undeclared dependency.

Additionally the install file is redundant, icons are updated by pacman hook now.

Thanks for your feedback, @szbergeron. I've been doing some debugging, and I think including the kwayland-git package as a dependency should be enough. I'm not home at the moment, though, so I can't test that right now.

Seems to need too new a version of kwayland-server, but there is no -git version of that package:
