This package is usually not needed to run SteamVR applications. They require libopenvr_api.so, but usually they will package this library with the application.

Even when developing with OpenVR is often included as a submodule and does not require a system wide installation like openvr-git provides.

This package basically installs /usr/lib/libopenvr_api.so, /usr/inlude/openvr.h, /usr/include/openvr_capi.h (with some fixes), which allows applications to link with -lopenvr_api and #include <openvr.h> without having to include openvr in the project. You only need this package if you want to do this.

It also installs the two OpenVR/SteamVR demo applications /usr/bin/hellovr_opengl and /usr/bin/hellovr_vulkan.

Right now it doesn't build as it has a bunch of random patches that are no longer needed and doesnt build anymore.

vulkan-headers is required for openvr-compositor.h, please add as makedepend. Also add gtk-doc, otherwise meson fails to build docs.

This package does not follow the Arch packaging guidelines. Specifically, it installs files to /usr/ which should be located in /usr/share/openvr/.

@haagch I think it would be best to just remove the openvrpaths.vrpath check since it compiles just fine without thet constraint. (lines 51-58 in samples/CMakeLists.txt)

Also namcap detects that gcc-libs is a dependency and it doesn't appear to be pulled in by any of the required or make dependencies.

openvr-git E: Dependency gcc-libs detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6', 'usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1'] needed in files ['usr/lib/libopenvr_api.so', 'usr/bin/tracked_camera_openvr_sample'])

I just forgot to update the PKGBUILD after doing a build locally. :)
