very useful on Arch with gtk

+1 for adding it on official repos

@Cromer My apologies for the confusion. Due to keeping gnome-shell/mutter at the previous 3.34 (something I always do to avoid the horde of issues when that jumps to a new version) I still had vala at version 0.46.6-1. After upgrading to vala 0.48.2-1 the build works fine. Sorry for the noise!

json-glibs does not need to be in run deps, it is already pulled in by gtk3.

Also vala in arch linux has the cairo-gobject vapi:

@glitsj16 reverting to cairo with a sed is not needed and not recommended. Cairo has: usr/lib/pkgconfig/cairo-gobject.pc which will handle it. However cairo is missing in the deps for this package, it should be added.

Hi, upstream changed dependency 'cairo' to 'cairo-gobject' for 7.2.1 (see, which doesn't exist in Arch Linux. This causes a build failure:

We need to revert to 'cairo' (which BTW needs to be added to the makedepends array), as that package contains 'cairo-gobject.h':

$ pkgfile cairo-gobject.h

This can easily be achieved by adding the below, either in a prepare() function or integrated into the current build() function: sed -i -e "s/cairo-gobject/cairo/"

Additionally, this package needs to add a run-time dependency on 'json-glib':

$ readelf -d  /usr/bin/pamac-system-daemon | grep NEEDED | cut -f2 -d[ | cut -f1 -d] | sort

$ pkgfile

@sudobash418, the terminal says it wants to build 7.1.2 to 7.1.3. Anyway, I tried downgrading vala but that didn't work, so I did it oldschool - uninstalled vala and then installed vala-0.42. Then I added vala to the ignorepkg list of pacman to prevent it from updating until this problem is solved. And the building of the new pamac-classic worked.

I just pushed 7.1.3 which has a temporary fix in it. Still trying to find a more permanent fix.
