clean chroot build fails: upstream is using a deprecated API.

In addition, gtk3 can be dropped from makedepends() (ido-ubuntu already depends on gtk3, although it should depend on gtk3-ubuntu); while python should be added to depends().

In order to clean chroot build, build ido-ubuntu and its dependency gtk3-ubuntu first, then preinstall them:

makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT -I ../ido-ubuntu/ido-ubuntu- -I ../gtk3-ubuntu/gtk3-ubuntu-3.24.11-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Thanks for the update!

Unity may be dead, but Ayatana indicators linger on. It's a sad state of affairs really, rather than coming up with a real standard, GNOME, Canonical, and others all made their own mutually-incompatible variations of SNI for no good reason at all.

@quequotion- the package was not updated by Ubuntu developers until last month, which I was not aware of. I will be happy to update the package. AFAIK, Unity development has come to a halt, so I do not know if this package will need maintenance much further into the future.

I apologize- I rebuilt the package with your comments in mind, then forgot to push the changes to the AUR. I will have the package updated shortly.

It would be really helpful to put those provides and conflicts in, so that this package can be used interchangably with the other one.

I notice you haven't updated the package since 2016, I'd be happy to take over if you aren't interested anymore.

Both packages need to provide and conflict the standard package, ie: package_libindicator-gtk2-ubuntu() { conflicts=(libindicator-gtk2) provides=(libindicator-gtk2) package_libindicator-gtk3-ubuntu() { conflicts=(libindicator-gtk3) provides=(libindicator-gtk3) It is difficult to install this package if the others are already installed; their dependencies need to know this package will suffice; proper provides() and conflicts() avoids forcing users to use dangerous flags with pacman.
