It doesn't build anymore, looks like they've removed htmlcxx as a dependency and added tidy instead. Builds fine in a clean chroot after adjusting the PKGBUILD.

curl is a pacman dependency and will be always be installed

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

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.
