@a821 Thanks for pointing that out.
I corrected the PKGBUILD (through a pkgrel) by specifically listing all supported architectures in the $arch array ('i686' 'x86_64' 'aarch64').

@Antiz the package should not use any in the $arch array as this is reserved for architecture-independent packages which this package is not (it contains compiled code). You would need to list all supported architectures in $arch. Check

Alternatively for ARM machines and others, the PKGBUILD can be anyway built by passing -A to makepkg(8)

The correction has been pushed !
Everyone should now be able to build this package again.

Additionally, I changed the "arch" variable's value to "any" so you can now build this package on ARM machines as well (such as Raspberry PI for instance).
I also added every past maintainers as contributors.

@Antiz Thank you! Also, don't worry too much about the pronouns thing, I hadn't updated my name and pronouns on the AUR until today. It means a lot more than you'd think :)

@k4rakara Thank you, I adopted the package and will push the corrections as soon as possible.
Good luck for your studies tho, I hope they'll go well !
By the way, sorry for calling you "he/him", I wans't aware of your pronouns back then.

Anyway I'll push the corrected PKGBUILD soon so this package becomes "buildable" again

@Antiz, @zazavo: Apologies for not getting back to you all sooner. I'm currently in the midst of my senior year of highschool, and don't have the time to maintain this package. Either of you are welcome to take ownership of the package.

@zuzavo Well, I gave the needed corrections to @k4rakara by email and I also said to him that if he doesn't have enough time or if he lost interest in maintaining this package, I was down to adopt it and correct it myself.
I hope I'll get an answer, but if I do not have any response by the end of the month, I'll probably submit an orphan request.

Thanks @Antiz. I also sent an email to @k4rakara, but without any result.. It would be fine if you become the maintainer of this package if @k4rakara has no time or lost interest to continue.

I managed to correct the PKGBUILD by modifying the "source" variable's value like so :


I sent @k4rakara an email with the correction so he can either push it or orphan the package so I can adopt it and push it myself.

Here's the corrected PKGBUILD :

# Maintainer: Colin Reeder <colin AT reederhome DOT net>
pkgdesc="PulseAudio control applet"
arch=(i686 x86_64)
depends=('gtk3' 'libnotify' 'libpulse')


pkgver() {
            cd "$pkgname"
                echo $(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)

build() {
        cd "$srcdir/$pkgname"
        CFLAGS+=" -Wno-error"
        ./configure --prefix=/usr

package() {
        cd "$srcdir/$pkgname"
        make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install
        install -D -m644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"

Hello, yesterday I sent an email to K4rakara asking him about if he could solved the problem with the new GitHub standards. I have tried local workarounds but without any success. I hope he responds or fix this issue.
