Please note that pacaur is targeted at *advanced users* only. You, user, are expected to be familiar with the manual build process as well as being knowledgeable about pacman, sudo and gpg configuration.
If you are not a makepkg wizard already, help yourself with the wiki and stay away from this helper!

* If you have problems locating pod2man during the build, please figure out where your PATH is being overridden. /etc/profile.d/ from the perl package will ensure that pod2man is in your PATH. (courtesy of falconindy).
* Pod2man issue and using Wayland? Read this:
* In case of a new major pacman release, you'll need to recompile cower against the new libalpm.

AND FOR GODS SAKE, do NOT ask questions to me. I'm not here to fix your freaking INCOMPETENCE.
And do NOT ask me to support your HIGHLY SPECIFIC user case that does NOT concern me. For paying support, see Paypal link in man page.

For people that actually read the man page and still believe they found a bug, follow the white rabbit:

@Spyhawk: Could you please check the latest comments in ? I'm out of ideas what is still wrong with my perl lib packages... Thanks!

I simple rebooted (after updating with pacman) to fix the pod2man issue.
Don't like editing 'deps', so please try this one first.

"Fixed" in the current version.

Hmm.. During installation of 4.7.2 it tries to run COMMAND=/usr/bin/touch /run/lock/ via sudo.
What's that? I only allow to run /usr/bin/pacman.

@bulletmark: Thx. I've updated the pinned comment.

People with that pod2man path error are probably running GNOME with Wayland like me. For a generic system wide fix, see my comment here

@ainola> Thx, will fix in next update.

Thanks for maintaining this, Spyhawk.

$pkgdir and $srcdir should be double quoted to prevent globbing and word splitting.

@bulletmark Thanks, I was having that issue. Adding that path fixed the problem for me.

bulletmark commented on 2017-02-03 22:33

OP, it would perhaps be best to avoid that pod2man error for everybody by specifying the path /usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man in the PKGBUILD. That works, is an easy change, and avoids users having to ensure they have particular environment.
