goetzc: The release version is used for good reason. Ubuntu's version requires patches to other system libraries outside the scope of a single package. There are likely quite a few good reasons none of the Ubuntu patches you mention have made it into a public release. A PKGBUILD for Ubuntu's version of libindicator is provided by and requires patched versions of GTK. As the majority of Arch Linux users aren't likely to want to adopt Ubuntu patches to core system libraries and rebuild them: we are sticking with the much less invasive release version.

If you had bothered to read the comments you would see this has already been discussed in the past. For users who want to build patched versions of GTK and track the Ubuntu version there is an option. This is for everyone else who would prefer to stick with the distributed binaries for GTK.

I notice you are using the latest release version, but there is also the version that Ubuntu itself uses, which has many patches. You can check it out here:

HotblackDesiato: That is not the version or release number of this package. If I parse the output you shared correctly the package you may be referring to is libappindicator and not libindicator. That package is located here:

As it happens I am also the maintainer of that package and I am unable to reproduce your error. If you would like further assistance please post the complete output of makepkg to a paste site and direct your comments to the appropriate package.

version 12.10.0-10 is broken. Some linkage problem:

We are indeed up to date with the public release here and it works well for most users. I believe a chain supporting the Ubuntu specific releases is in the works for users needing more recent versions dependent upon the Ubuntu patches to GTK to run their applications because options are good.

yea, but i don't want install it

is much effort (and i use Qt)

sl1pkn07, the dependencies needed should be here in the aur.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2016-01-19 01:00

EDIT: BAH! noting to do, need gtk3-ubuntu and some other dependencies

Why is this flagged out-of-date? Libindicator version on launchpad is still at 12.10.1.
