Oh BTW the versioning is slightly incorrect. Because there is a tag upstream, you should use the second version on the wiki, i.e.

git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

This will mean that the latest git version will be installed as 0.2.0.r6.ga37456c . The current PKGBUILD makes the version r30.a37456c-1, which is actually less than the previously-installed version (i.e. pacman will not update it).

Thank you for the prompt fix! It installs perfectly now.

Re: python-imapnotify. Haha… yes I was the one that made the original comment referencing it on the nodejs-imapnotify package! :D I've just been having some problems recently with the python version, and wanted to try this one again. Thanks again.

I have pushed a new version that hopefully fixes your error. Let me know if the problems continue.

Btw, there is also a python version which is now the developers main version. It is available also via the AUR:

I copied the source of the symlinks manually from the pkg directory (after makepkg), but now it fails with

throw err;

Error: Cannot find module 'imap'

Hi again! This package still fails to install properly, but for different reasons now. It installs `/usr/bin/imapnotify`, which is a symlink to the non-existent `../lib/node_modules/imapnotify/bin/imapnotify`. It also installs `/usr/lib/node_modules/imapnotify`, which is a symlink to the non-existent `../../../../../src/nodejs-imapnotify-git`.

I get the following error when I install.

(1/1) installing nodejs-imapnotify-git
warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/bin/
filesystem: 755 package: 777

It's odd, because the package's usr/bin seems to have normal permissions (755). Maybe I don't understand this error…

@tealeaf -- do you still have this issue? I just tried it and had no problems.

Apologies for the delay in responding.

I haven't seen this specifically mentioned here, although there seem to be a few related issues around the web.

I installed this fine about a week ago, but now when I run a package update, or reinstall from scratch, I get to the:
"==> Starting package()..."
line, and npm sits there using up about a quarter of my CPU without progressing.

I've run the relevant line from the PKGBUILD manually and it hangs on the first package install:
"[..................] | normalizeTree: sill install loadCurrentTree"

From a quick search, it seems that this is a known issue related to installing packages locally, but I haven't found if there is a well-known solution.
