Using paru, install hangs at qrencode install. Checking processes list, nothing seems to be happening.

EDIT2: Ok yeah this was just a very slow clone of protobuf without any status. Consider adding git clone display to prevent users from thinking something is wrong.

Hi @Alkaris. We specify LD_LIBRARY_PATH in code (by setenv and exec), so it will take it from the LD_LIBRARY_PATH we set. However that error probably means the packages have updated and it's failing to download them. This is fixed in the C# branch, however it won't be ready for a long time. I've also effectively stopped maintaining the old C++ based version, but I'll update the packages to keep it working.

You need to specify where shared object file is for steamclient.so otherwise it'll return this. Because you didn't it won't do anything. Where do you expect it to locate the file?

Failed to dlopen steamclient.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@20Percent: Again, do not manually change the pkgver. Running makepkg -od is enough to generate it.

  • The pkgver function sets the pkgver when makepkg is run, please do not invent it. The leading 'v' should be removed.
  • Please see Cmake & VCS package guidelines
  • lib32-gcc-libs is not optional. It's a direct dependency and fails build without it

  • There are issues with the desktop file:

opensteamclient.desktop: hint: value "Network;FileTransfer;Game;" for key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" contains more than one main category; application might appear more than once in the application menu
opensteamclient.desktop: warning: value "" for key "Path" in group "Desktop Entry" does not look like an absolute path
opensteamclient.desktop: warning: key "TerminalOptions" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated

  • The comments, double-spacing and 8 space indentation is bit much. Keep it simple and under 80 - 100 characters.
  • The application crashes after attempting to login with either QR code or username and password. I'll create an upstream issue

Improved PKGBUILD
