This is still the problem that was already discussed with user ozky 2015/12.
To sum it up: libfm-qt needs libfm ≥ 1.2.0. When package libfm-qt-git was established this requirement was already met by libfm from the official repositories but there were still some too old versions in the AUR, hence I've set depends=([...] 'libfm>=1.2.0'). Package libfm-git states among other provides=libfm (via variable _pkgbase), but packages "provided" are not assigned the same version as the underlying package itself, here libfm-git, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#provides. This is causing the problem you're facing. A possible solution would have been to make package libfm-git state something like provides=("$_pkgbase=$pkgver" [...]), but the corresponding request remained unanswered.
Anyway there are no longer any outdated versions of libfm in the AUR by now so I've simply dropped that version dependency which should get you started.

Notes
It's not the AUR helpers which are to blame, rather, you'll make the same findings running 'makepkg -s' in a checkout of libfm-qt-git.
The error message could be considered a bit misleading. It's dealing with the package names only while it's in fact an issue with that version dependency.
Recent versions of libfm from community do no longer depend on GTK either.

when i install this package with pacaur or yaourt, "libfm" is still still required as a hard dependency. i have to change the PKGBUILD in order to be able to compile it with "libfm-git" instead of "libfm".

is it possible to change something (i do not know what) to make it possible to compile and install this package with "libfm-git" preinstalled?

("libm-git" has multiple advantages over "libfm", e.g. it does not depend on "gtk2")

Please add git to makedepends.

It seems this package should conflict with pcmanfm-qt <= 0.10 as it prevents the installation of libfm-qt{-git} when this older version of pcmanfm-qt is installed.

ozky commented on 2015-12-04 15:44

This is because i have used only libfm-git without whole lxqt git and pcmanfm-qt git.

@ozky
Tweaking variable provides in package libfm-git is meant to satisfy the need for a distinct version by libfm-qt. It does not influence the dependencies themselves. So libfm-git will still provide both libfm and libfm-extras which hence have to get removed in order to install package libfm-git. All expected behaviour. You may want to have another look into the wiki link provided in my first post.
Those conflicts have nothing to do with libfm-git either. Rather, you have an old version of PCManFM-Qt installed that still provides libfm-qt itself. See "The only problem..." in note to contadino earlier. Before submitting package libfm-qt-git I first considered having a hint displayed but actually found the situation clear enough later, tbh.

ozky commented on 2015-12-04 14:35

This will not work provides=("$_pkgbase=$pkgver" "$_pkgbase-extra") as it still provides package named libfm-git and conflict with libfm. Second thing there is lot of file conflicts with libfm-git.

I got just a compile error with pcmanfm-qt-git, asking for some libfm-qt stuff, thats why I wanted to install libfm-qt-git.

Anyway, removing pcmanfm-qt-git and packages for panel, runner, lximage and menu-cache, then reinstalling everything starting with libfm-qt-git worked fine, even in running session.
Thanks for the hint for the language, good for next time.

@ozky
Not sure what's the purpose of your last comment.
Your initial concern is absolutely valid and an attempt to solve it was already made, see my first reply. For the time being you may download the AUR archive of libfm-git, change the provides variable in PKGBUILD to provides=("$_pkgbase=$pkgver" "$_pkgbase-extra") and build / install the package manually. Package libfm-qt-git and all packages depending on it can then be installed as usual.

@contadino
Package libfm can be replaced with libfm-git without issues here. Packages libfm and libfm-extra have to get replaced by libfm-git which is providing both and there's the version issue discussed with ozky. But that aside no problems. You are aware that using libfm-git isn't mandatory at all and that libfm will do? Also, what's the reason to remove libfm-git? Just installing the package (libfm or libfm-git) that shall be used is OK.
The only possible problem I'm seeing is that former pcmanfm-qt-git packages still comprising libfm-qt conflict with package libfm-qt-git. But this is a normal consequence of the transition and can be solved easily by removing package pcmanfm-qt-git (and possibly lximage-qt-git) while no session is running and then installing packages implementing the outsourcing of libfm-qt.
On a side note it would be good if you posted shell output in English. Can be achieved either by invoking distinct commands with an appropriate LANG variable set, e. g. 'LANG=C yaourt -R foo bar', or by running 'export LANG=C' which will affect the current shell session as a whole until an other value is set.

I get a cicle and will end up removing and reinstalling a lot of stuff....
