This package is obsolete. Go for the official one at community/neovide.

A working PKGBUILD for those who cannot be bothered to compile. Its not perfect and I have not checked each and every dependency if its actually required or not. Hopefully this package can be picked up again soon.....

    sed -i 's/Icon=neovide/Icon=nvim/' neovide.desktop

package() {
    install -Dm755 "target/release/${pkgname_orig}" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/${pkgname_orig}"

Just installed, it crash with this error:

Ignored client type property: "methods" Ignored client type property: "attributes" thread 'main' panicked at 'Failed to create renderer: VkError(ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED)', src/window/sdl2/ note: run with RUST_BACKTRACE=1 environment variable to display a backtrace

Any clue:

Awesome, thanks!

EDIT: Although I noticed you hard coded neovide 0.7.0 in the URL for the desktop file. You should probably use the package version there instead.

Done, thank you. Can you proofread the PKGBUILD?

Edit: Corrected the hardcoded version

This package doesn't install the neovide desktop file, which makes the application much more of a pain to launch.

The desktop file is available in the assets folder of the official Github repository:

The "neovide" AUR package does this already, so you could pretty much copy the relevant lines from there:

Thanks, I wasn't informed on this. This was more of a workaround until someone confronted about the issue.

If you need a Vulkan driver to run this, then you should add vulkan-driver to its dependencies instead. vulkan-driver is satisfied by vulkan-intel, vulkan-radeon, or any package that provides it.
