Thanks @Avahe.

FYI, I have just created a nimdow package for people who want to build the binary from source:

You're welcome to take over the package if you feel more comfortable with that.

Thanks kseistrup, I've just updated the PKGBUILD to reflect the requested changes.

The PKGBUILD for v0.7.35-0 has a number of issues:

By using just install -D $something, every $something gets installed with execute permissions (0755: -rwxr-xr-x), which should be true for the nimdow executable only.

Please use specific permissions:

install -Dm0755 "nimdow-$pkgver" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/nimdow"
install -Dm0644 "nimdow-config-$pkgver.toml" "$pkgdir/usr/share/nimdow/config.default.toml"
install -Dm0644 "nimdow-$pkgver.1" "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/nimdow.1"
install -Dm0644 "nimdow.desktop" "$pkgdir/usr/share/xsessions/nimdow.desktop"

The $pkgrel should start at 1, not 0.

Please add:


in case somebody provides a nimdow package that is compiled at install time.

This package messes with files in the builder's home directory. Please fix it ASAP or orphan it so someone else can.
