I am trying to create an archlinux install that lets me build all of lxqt from git.

It appears I need to build some of the other "git" packages before this will build. Is it possible to get the dependencies in the order they will build?

What @blarneyrabble is saying is correct, AUR helpers tend to think the package has always a pending update to install.

This is due to a mismatch in versioning between the PKGBUILD and the .SRCINFO: pkgver for the former is 0.10.something at present time, while the latter has the titular 0.13 (which is outdated btw, LxQt has been on .14 since January). The installed package will have 0.10, but AUR helpers will normally parse .SRCINFO to decide what to do, they'll see a higher version number and reasonably conclude there's work to do.

Another way to look at the problem is that pkgver() is trying to read version tags from the git repository, but those are horrendously out of date. Even unannotated tags are stuck on 0.11. You may want to bring this up to the LxQt people.

Regardless, the versioning scheme for the package ought to be changed because it does not install tagged releases anyways. You can find more info on versioning VCS packages on the wiki.

For networking applet, why don't we depend on lxqt-connman-applet which has iwd support?

Aberts10 commented on 2018-05-24 19:32

Seems the volume applet is completely non-operating

I think there's a discrepancy in the package name. I'm getting constant requests to update.

0.11 isn't tagged?

nbvcxz commented on 2017-05-15 16:41

marked outdated as lxqt-common is required

excalibur1234 commented on 2017-05-05 11:19

lxqt-common got integrated into all other lxqt packages upstream:

it should be removed from the list of dependencies.

jwhickman commented on 2015-12-03 03:05

It appears that `libfm-qt-git` needs added to the PKGBUILD?
