curl is a pacman dependency and will be always be installed

LuckyTurtleDev commented on 2020-12-07 11:39 (UTC)

curl is a missing dependency. I did not see this the last time I hand look at this package.

For the new reCAPTCHA feature you need set the cmake flag -DUSE_QT_GUI=ON and the new dependency qt5-webengine. Without this feature you can not login anymore, because you can not solve the captcha.

Furthermore the liboauth dependency is not needed anymore (see comment from frankyboy).

lgogdownloader: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The solution is to rebuild/reinstall lgogdownloader-git completely.

frankyboy commented on 2019-11-16 07:39 (UTC)

with this comming lgogdownloader is no longer depends on liboauth

tea commented on 2016-12-27 01:47 (UTC)

In order to prevent issues with packages like gog-heroes-of-might-and-magic-3-complete-edition, I've added a thing to provides to ensure that the version of lgogdownloader being 'provided' is the same as the current release - previously, the packages which depend on lgogdownloader were shitting a bit because they had explicit versions listed. The method isn't amazing nor completely foolproof - I'm not a genius at writing regular expressions so a better solution would be much appreciated.

Could you update .SRCINFO with the new version scheme? My AUR helper keeps telling me that there is an update from 2.26.r6.g14d9d3d-1 -> 20160120-2.

commented on 2015-09-09 03:11 (UTC)

That's because you're not looking at the latest one. I deleted the old one and it's apparently been overwritten.

tea commented on 2015-09-08 22:10 (UTC)

Your link actually appears to lead to a samba configuration file.

commented on 2015-09-07 01:50 (UTC)

Argh, apologies for the accidental flag out of date, I was trying to hit Vote. I swear I'm not being that pushy about updating the PKGBUILD!

commented on 2015-09-07 01:47 (UTC)

As a perl programmer the replacement pattern comes more naturally to me. You can actually get rid of it entirely and just use a bare variable by renaming the git repo as it's cloned, as here: Also, I was unaware that github allowed anonymous git access, as I've seen lack of account cited as the problem with using 'git://' instead of 'git+https://' on other PKGBUILDs.

carstene1ns commented on 2015-09-06 20:44 (UTC)

@Celti: great! I actually already requested parts of your changes below... ;) My 2 cents: Using https to access github is a good idea, but your reason is simply wrong. You will not need a github account or ssh at all to clone from the git:// url. The only real benefit in using https here is that git uses a port (9418) that may be blocked by firewalls and the https port (443) is normally not blocked. Any reason to prefer a replacement pattern (${pkgname/-git//}) over a simple "delete from the end" (${pkgname%-*})?

commented on 2015-09-06 16:09 (UTC)

Here is an updated PKGBUILD: Changes include: * Corrected dependencies. * Use HTTPS to access GitHub for use without a GitHub account/configured SSH key. * Get rid of unnecessary $_gitname variable. * Use proper quoting everywhere. * Use proper pkgver() function. * Don't install the manpage twice (make install includes it). * Include the license in the package.

itoijala commented on 2014-08-22 12:01 (UTC)

Please also include the man page in the package.

carstene1ns commented on 2014-06-14 12:30 (UTC)

Every -git package should makedepend on 'git'. And you really should use a better identifier in the pkgver function, e.g.: git describe --long | sed -r 's/^v//;s/-/.r/;s/-/./'

tea commented on 2014-04-21 18:06 (UTC)

haha whoops, sorry! fixed that now

Ner0 commented on 2014-04-21 16:45 (UTC)

You've mispelled makedepends.

tea commented on 2014-02-13 15:18 (UTC)

As far as I know it only needs to be a makedepend since it just creates the manpages at compile time. No need to leave it installed after the fact as per packaging standards.

Daerandin commented on 2014-02-13 13:59 (UTC)

It is listed as a makedepend in the new PKGBUILD, but yes it does not appear among the listed dependencies here.

BlackLotus89 commented on 2014-02-12 22:22 (UTC)

help2man is missing as a dependencie

tea commented on 2014-02-12 12:21 (UTC)

Sorry that took a while. I've updated it.

Daerandin commented on 2014-02-08 20:31 (UTC)

The current git version will not build unless I have the package 'help2man' installed, so you may want to add that as a dependency to this package.

tea commented on 2013-04-05 14:27 (UTC)

Updated to new pacman specifications.
