mdbtools should be an optdepends rather than depends as openboardview works without it. It is only required for bvconv.sh which will be used by only a few people. mdbtools is AUR only and pulls a lot of dependencies for the build so better not force it onto everyone.

mdbtools is required for bvconv, so would be great to add it as optdep

Also please add python as a make dependency.

The recommended procedure for making packages is now by calling directly CMake, without using the build.sh script, it'll install the new desktop/mime-type files too. bvconf.sh and the LICENSE file will still have to be installed manually. Something along the lines of:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
make

make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

@piernov: Thanks for the feedback, I’ve updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

We merged inflex-ui-features branch back to the original repository.
The git URL is now "https://github.com/OpenBoardView/OpenBoardView.git".

As @swiftgeek said, I'm wondering why it's in /opt, and why the "utilities" folder would be an issue. It contains only one script which should probably go in /usr/bin as well.

Finally, gtk3 is a runtime dependency too. Without it the open file dialog will be unavaible. At least it should be optional if you don't want to add an hard requirement on it.

Yes, because of the utilities folder.

Any reason to put it in /opt/bin instead of /usr/bin ?
