I got the similar downloading object problem,sine I'm not familiar with package build process i have no idea where is the problem.The following is the error.

Ok, managed to get it building again with this patch:

Strangely enough, the git-lfs errors have come back. Not sure how to fix them this time.

@Nebulosa I made a copy & paste error with the packageversion, it should be fixed now.

Nebulosa commented on 2024-03-30 20:50 (UTC)

Something wrong with pkgver..

After building the package it switch to ==> Updated version: niri-git 0.1.4.r0.g7ff2de1-1 and after checking updates it shows that it has update again...

cosmo commented on 2024-03-29 17:19 (UTC)

thanks @supreme, I updated the PKGBUILD

Looks like this is failing to build:

Managed to fix by adding git-lfs to makedepends

I've moved default-config.kdl over to /usr/share/doc/niri.

I haven't included the script, I didn't feel sure that it would fit in with the rest of the package, especially since it's not part of the niri repo itself.

Nebulosa commented on 2024-02-21 14:02 (UTC) (edited on 2024-02-21 14:03 (UTC) by Nebulosa)

Yes, /usr/share/doc/niri would be better in that case.

Maybe make a message that you should check latest version of config here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/YaLTeR/niri/main/resources/default-config.kdl

OR:

Add /usr/bin/niri-config-updatescript: https://github.com/YaLTeR/niri/discussions/152#discussioncomment-8450133 with meld optional dependency. Not hotkey, just script.

@Nebulosa The default-config.kdl is useful in the case where you already have a ~/.config/niri/config.kdl, and you want to compare your config against the default. I do think it might be good to move it out of /etc though, would it be better to have it in /usr/share/doc/niri?
