WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THIS PACKAGE! This is a re-branded OwnCloud's client. The only currently available NextCloud's client is the GIT version (nextcloud-client-git).

REASON: This package does not install a binary version of the NextCloud client software tested and distributed by the community. In fact, it downloads one of its parts from Owncloud's and the other from NextCloud's GIT repositories trying to mix them both somehow together. That's THE WRONG example of a PKGBUILD and AGAINST the KISS principles of Arch Linux.

arch=('x86_64') # there is not an official i686 version, but this one may work
#... and so on, and so forth

@k0ste, thanks, that did the trick.

@DonHugo, something with your system. extra-cmake-modules depends on cmake. cmake depends on jsoncpp.

Anybody else encountering the same error?

==> Beginne build()...
cmake: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in build().

Seems like jsoncpp is missing, should this be added as a dependency or is it just something on my system?

@jplatte, before making a complaint - learn how is delivered archive with the source code. If you already have a solution of the "problem" you expressed, perhaps the best way to solve it is to share your solution with the community.
Best regards.

k0ste: Your PKGBUILD seems to download an archive, then ignore the automatically unpacked contents and clone the git repo in prepare instead to build that. This is not a `-git` package, so you shouldn't be cloning the git repo!

Please read, or if you don't have the time to, orphan this package so somebody else can fix the PKGBUILD.
