Upstream are tagging releases so it might be nice to switch the pkgver() function to e.g.:

pkgver() {
  git -C numix-icon-theme describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

AUR never contains the files of the project. Find the source of the AUR pkgbuild and report there. In this case you need to go to

There are missing icons for Xfce, such as Xfce terminal, and in the Settings window: Desktop, File manager settings and Xfce terminal. These were not missing in older versions of this package (don't know which one).

It's indeed not needed.

The package numix-folders-git contains a numix-folders.hook which triggers when this package is updated.

As the hook is in the other package, gtk-update-icon-cache is by no means a dependency of this package.

Edit: The upstream URL is outdated, exists

Is this the complete icon pack? Why are there no application icons?

. . . Checking PKGBUILD Checking numix-icon-theme-git-0.r1945.5890eebcf-1-any.pkg.tar.xz numix-icon-theme-git W: Dependency included and not needed ('gtk-update-icon-cache') It seems gtk-update-icon-cache isn't needed.

`makepkg` just pulls new updates from git after the initial clone.

Isn't it better to download the master zip instead of cloning the whole repository? There is around 2K commits for that repository which is not used after download. the same can be downloaded from or, just using shallow clone (with --depth=1)of the same will do the trick

install file removed, added the dep in the common package, cheers.

I think gtk-update-icon-cache can be dropped from all the numix-*-git as we have now the libalpm/gtk-update-icon-cache.hook. A dependency on gtk-update-icon-cache is then needed tough.

alucryd commented on 2015-11-12 08:16 (UTC)

No, the original way was without the leading slash, the leading slash started being accepted not so long ago. Anyway, both work, there is no problem.

Hexcles commented on 2015-11-12 00:39 (UTC)

It seems to me the leading slash of the path in the post-install script is missing. It should be: gtk-update-icon-cache -ftq /usr/share/icons/Numix gtk-update-icon-cache -ftq /usr/share/icons/Numix-Light I checked the adwaita-icon-theme package in extra. Its install script has the leading slash. This makes sense, because unlike during packaging, in post-install absolute paths should be used. And in fact, without the leading slash, it doesn't work (the icon cache isn't updated). numix-circle-icon-theme-git has the same problem.

Thanks, I found the --devel switch to pacman and added it to my AUR heper command (pacaur), now -git packages are updated with the rest of the system :-)

auscompgeek commented on 2015-09-23 09:22 (UTC)

@neitsab: This is because this is a development package. You are expected to update -git packages yourself.

neitsab commented on 2015-08-23 12:48 (UTC)

This package fails to auto-update: I had to manually reinstall it for it to pick the latest git rev.

wooque commented on 2015-03-01 16:49 (UTC)

Newest revision is r289.ec0c844

startas commented on 2014-06-29 17:42 (UTC)

The package is actually made pretty good, that it doesnt care about the version and just gits the latest files, that way it wont become one of those dead packages, that no one updates, or updates once a year.

startas commented on 2014-06-29 17:39 (UTC)

Well, just uninstall the package and install it again. You can check github itsef if there are any changes.

Knalltuete commented on 2014-04-13 10:34 (UTC)

The version number of the package doesn't raise anymore. So it's not possible to get updates, if there are changes on GIT.

The regular numix icon theme has been superseded by numix-shine. As I understand it, numix-icon-theme is still a base icon pack which numix-circle requires atm.
