minipro uses an udev rule 61-minipro-plugdev.rules which uses the group plugdev which does not exist on Arch. This produces a systemd-udev error:

systemd-udevd[324]: /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/61-minipro-plugdev.rules:14 Unknown group 'plugdev', ignoring

Thanks @uffe! Looks great!

@thierer and @Synthead: thanks for the heads-up and fix suggestions - new PKGBUILD pushed :-)

Please pass PREFIX to make in build(). minipro --list cannot find infoic.xml without this env var because minipro is looking for infoic.xml in /usr/local/share/minipro.

  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
  make PREFIX="/usr"

minipro now uses an external device database file. To set the directory where the global version of this file is searched to /usr/share/minipro/ (instead of the default /usr/local/...), PREFIX has to be set for make call in build():

Thank you jfcandidofilho and uffe for helping keep this package updated!

EDIT: this is not necessary anymore since @uffe took the job of maintaining the package.


Since the maintainer has yet to update this, I made its PKGBUILD up-to-date. Most people that uses this won't need it though - probably.
