Consider adding a dependency on the onnxruntime package to enable face tracking functionality. The target name is then opentrack-tracker-neuralnet.

Also, license is ISC and not GPL3.

Can the package name be updated to reflect version scheme change ? (2023.1.0) I know this follows head but it could limit confusion.

In opentrack.desktop path to the icon is wrong: Icon=/opt/opentrack/contrib/cute-octopus-vector-material_15-1831.jpg

Additionaly, OpenTrack cannot get global hotkeys in Wayland session, this can be "fixed" by forcing it to use XWayland with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb

@Moofed Love it when issues fix themselves. Thanks for letting me know.

@dreieck did you forget you are co-maintainer of this package when you made that comment?

The issue with the presets dir should now be fixed in upstream git.

This PKGBUILD wants to install within package() something (/usr/libexec/opentrack/presets) directly outside $pkgdir, which is forbidden:

Please fix.

Thanks for maintaining!

Would it be possible to include Aruco tracking capabilities? Thank you!

I suggest that you add to $pkgver (i.e. into pkgver()) some code to determine the upstream "official" version of the software, and then increment $epoch (i.e.
and then change
provides=('opentrack') to

There is software version present:

In "${srcdir}/opentrack":

git describe:

git describe --tags:

pkgver() could look for example like:

pkgver() {
  cd "$srcdir/opentrack"
  _ver="$(git describe --tags | awk -F- '{print $2}')"
  _rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
  _date="$(git log -1 --format=%cd --date=format:%Y%m%d)"
  _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
  if [ -z "${_ver}" ]; then
    error "Could not determine version."
    return 11
    printf '%s' "${_ver}+r${_rev}.${_date}.${_hash}"

Thanks for your maintanence efforts! (or simpler, like just using "${_ver}" and "${_rev}".)

For me, build fails when I compile with wine support, but succeeds without.

In the PKGBUILD's build() function I had to change -DSDK_WINE=ON to


to achieve compilation without wine support.

EDIT 2021-04-29: Now it works with -DSDK_WINE=ON; there also has been another commit to upstream git repo, maybe that changed something.
