Hi, I'd like to suggest to add "" in the provides section as I get a dependency related error without it.

A lot of the maintainers packages have been flagged and/or not updated since like 2015.

The PKGBUILD needs a makeover. The source is dated.

pango-git depends on /usr/bin/pango-querymodules, but it isn't provided by this package nor any of its dependencies.

@zheoffec File a bug to pacaur and let them support pkgbase.

:: Could not read pango-git PKGBUILD: badly packaged tarball - output when installing from pacaur

@yuyichao, okay, thanks.

yuyichao commented on 2013-05-27 15:37 (UTC)

option emptydirs......

techlive commented on 2013-05-27 15:35 (UTC)

@yuyichao, I knew that, I mean, how do you fix it?

yuyichao commented on 2013-05-27 15:34 (UTC)

....... well, whenever u get an error like this from shell, you know it is because the directory doesn't exist...

techlive commented on 2013-05-27 15:33 (UTC)

@yuyichao, then, where is the problem?

yuyichao commented on 2013-05-27 15:30 (UTC)

Fixed. They mustn't! See `pacman --root` as well as any official pkgbuild's.

techlive commented on 2013-05-27 15:21 (UTC)

Got an error: /tmp/alpm_ejsxqj/.INSTALL: line 6: etc/pango/pango.modules: No such file or directory After looking at the pango.install, why all the paths are not prefixed with '/'?

yuyichao commented on 2013-04-21 03:32 (UTC)

I will update pkgver() later, but I will not use makepkg to download the git repo since it doesn't support a lot of features I need. (e.g. switching between multiple remote urls without removing local cache).

haawda commented on 2013-04-21 03:26 (UTC)

I fixed my bug. Nevertheless you can find a pacman-4.1-compliant PKGBUILD at

yuyichao commented on 2013-03-18 13:41 (UTC)

@StefanHusmann and that is your bug.

haawda commented on 2013-03-18 13:39 (UTC)

Well, my tool autoaur cannot handle this, yet.

yuyichao commented on 2013-03-17 13:14 (UTC)

@StefanHusamann This shouldn't be a problem. It is just the name makepkg generate when pkgbase is provided and AUR helper should also be able to handle it correctly.

haawda commented on 2013-03-17 13:11 (UTC)

Right now I am trying. I am currently rebuilding the dependencies. I just saw that fontconfig-git has the same problem.

yuyichao commented on 2013-03-17 12:57 (UTC)

@StefanHusmann Do you have any problem building the package? "pango" is just pkgbase.

haawda commented on 2013-03-17 12:39 (UTC)

This tarball is uploaded incorrectly: drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 pango/ -rw-r--r-- root/root 475 pango/pango.install -rw-r--r-- root/root 1123 pango/PKGBUILD where it should be drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 pango-git/ -rw-r--r-- root/root 475 pango-git/pango.install -rw-r--r-- root/root 1123 pango-git/PKGBUILD Please reupload.

Please add harfbuzz-git as a dependency.

bzt commented on 2011-08-24 09:21 (UTC)

Could you change the provides variable, so it actually provides pango (or use the PKGBUILD from below)?

Franek commented on 2011-08-23 19:58 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD didn't work for me for some reasons. This one does:
