Probably because the latest PKGBUILD is still the same PKGBUILD as before. I see something went wrong with the mirroring/pushing to the AUR. Different git issue i.c.w. CI pipeline (repository ownership) so the PKGBUILD was never included. I'll fix that in a bit.

I'm still unable to build after cloning the latest PKGBUILD.

Cloning into 'looking-glass-git/src/looking-glass/repos/PureSpice'...
fatal: transport 'file' not allowed
fatal: clone of '/home/nark/Downloads/looking-glass-git/src/PureSpice' into submodule path 'looking-glass-git/src/looking-glass/repos/PureSpice' failed

@gutash; it's not advisable to use internal/private git commands. There's no telling when those may change or break.

Due to CVE-2022-39253, the flag protocol.file.allow was changed to default to 'user', which disallows the use of file:// clones. The proper way to deal with this is to set the config flag to re-allow file:// clones instead. I've updated the package to explicitly provide this config flag for the submodule update commands.

A recent git update broke some -git packages using submodules. I've seen a common fix between other packages for this, so here's a patch that enables this package to properly build again:

The project already did back in August. Under the default build options, it's not a new dependency for the client. It is now only additionally being used in the client's X11 displayserver component but it's not a new dependency.

Unless you've manually made changes to the PKGBUILD to change the build options to exclude anything and everything libxkbcommon, nothing changed.

Sorry, my bad. The project just added this dependency officially so I just passed along the message. I should have looked at PKGBUILD

Omar007 commented on 2022-07-02 11:55 (UTC)

@NetBoy3: It already has since August last year.

Netboy3 commented on 2022-07-02 00:52 (UTC)

Now depends on libxkbcommon

Package fails to build. I was told by looking-glass maintainers that in-source builds are not supported and that may be a reason.
