for those having the error when running noVNC: "No package metadata was found for websockify" I fixed it with the following command:

yay -S --rebuild --noconfirm websockify

it rebuilds websockify. Python upgrade from 3.10 to 3.11 caused this at me.

i'm getting the following error when attempting to build this package, anybody else getting this?:-

error merging novnc: fatal: No current branch.

looks like the error is only triggered if using a helper, in my case 'yay', makepkg builds ok, the issue looks to be a commit that has been done on another branch, it can be worked around by doing the following:-

git checkout master

Warning: you are leaving 1 commit behind, not connected to any of your branches:

d04332d fix: add which as deps & rename service file with @

If you want to keep it by creating a new branch, this may be a good time to do so with:

git branch <new-branch-name> d04332d

branch 'master' set up to track 'origin/master'.

Then use yay to build.

"which" is a member of the base-devel group. If I recall correctly, AUR users / package builders are implicitly expected to have the base-devel group installed and so there is never a need to explicitly add a dependency on any package in that group in a PKGBUILD.

@v3d @romstor @dejavu Fixed, thanks.

Please add which as dependency. As v3d already mentioned, it is required to find websockify. This took me some time to get novnc working again.

novnc.service should be a template unit novnc@.service to accept %i parameter. Right now unit doesn't start and gives an error. See systemd - Using Units - ArchWiki for more details.

P.S.: It would also be good to add usage example into unit comment systemctl start novnc@ip:port as @yjun's comment will eventually be buried "off-screen".

v3d commented on 2022-02-13 22:51 (UTC)

This should depend on which since it uses it to determine if websockify is installed

@yjun Added, thanks.

With community/tigervnc 1.11.0-6 (maybe earlier) I have problems that the screen is not redrawn. I open the novnc/websockify/tigervnc screen, it works. I click several times/type something in the terminal, cannot see it on the screen.

After a while novnc reconnects.

At the same time connection to the vnc via vinagre stays OK.

Anyone seeing this problem too?

Description=noVNC Service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/novnc --vnc %i


systemd service for noVNC, put it to /etc/systemd/system and type systemctl start novnc@ip:port to start service
