This package has new dependencies on pantheon-settings-daemon and pantheon-dock, which are not currently provided by any official repository.

One way to build this (in a clean chroot, without an AUR helper) would be to build packages providing them from the AUR first, then build it against them:

$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pantheon-settings-daemon-git.git
$ cd pantheon-settings-daemon
$ makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT
# pacman -U --asdeps pantheon-settings-daemon-git-1.0.0.r18.e4b709d-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst 
$ cd ..
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pantheon-dock-instctl-git.git
$ cd pantheon-dock-instctl-git
$ makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT

@quequotion, Thanks, now I can continue building

@bkb

to have entries in the display manager

I don't think, for this specific thing, the git version was ever required. The "stable release" version should provide the gnome-session and xsession files just as well. Unfortunately neither is available from an official repository yet.

@qkvylq

libwingpanel-2.0.so=0-64

Upstream has changed the whole way they version and name their library, but Alucryd's wingpanel package has not. This package of mine is incorrect also.

In this case, I think you can work around by removing the "=0-64" bit from line 15 in the PKGBUILD (might as well remove it from both wingpanel and gala). Note that in the near future, all packages requiring libwingpanel--including this--may need to be rebuilt if Alucryd changes the library name in the wingpanel package.

I will try to get around to updating this package tonight.

qkvylq commented on 2021-07-27 11:34 (UTC)

The package is no longer being built

yay -S pantheon-session-git
 -> Could not find all required packages:
    libwingpanel-2.0.so=0-64 (Wanted by: pantheon-session-git)

What can I change to build?

bkb commented on 2021-07-26 09:22 (UTC)

Needs a wingpanel version who is not available

Do we still need the "git" version to have entries in the display manager?

quequotion commented on 2021-03-14 04:08 (UTC)

@btd1337

How are you building this?

It should get gala and wingpanel from [extra] when built in a clean chroot, until their sonames bump (when new stable releases get packaged).

btd1337 commented on 2021-03-07 05:59 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-07 05:59 (UTC) by btd1337)

It needs to update PKGBuild dependencies to build works correctly.

depends=(
  (...)
  gala
  wingpanel
  (...)
)

quequotion commented on 2021-01-21 03:49 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-21 11:49 (UTC) by quequotion)

@bkb

Thanks for the feedback! That sounds very familiar.

The symptoms are the same as were had quite some time ago, when gala, cerbere,or g-s-d would fail to start.

To be sure: you ought to have read the wiki, which would have told you that wingpanel is empty by default and plank does not have its autostart. There's a possibility you are looking at empty wingpanel (black or transparent top bar), no plank (missing startup), and an empty background (no theme or backgrounds package). This could be remedied by installing any wingpanel indicator and creating plank's autostart, if that is the case.

I will look into if I can reproduce your situation and if there is another cause (failed to build autostarts, etc.).

EDIT: The package I built in a clean chroot includes all the autostarts it should, in the directory /etc/xdg/autostart/.

bkb commented on 2021-01-20 23:22 (UTC)

This package gives a mouse with the background. But nothing else possible. It doesn't seem to xdg autostart anything, and in fact the installation doesn't seem to copy anything in the xdg start directory

quequotion commented on 2020-11-16 00:39 (UTC) (edited on 2020-11-16 00:45 (UTC) by quequotion)

@btd1337

This package does not depend on the -git versions of its dependencies, although it is a development tip itself.

I believe it will build without any trouble against the stable release of wingpanel, etc.

If that ever changes, or when the new wingpanel gets a release and the [community] package is updated, I will bump the dependency version.

Edit: in the mean time, if you wish to use wingpanel-git with it, you might try obfuscating the library version it installs.

As yet nothing I am aware of is explicitly written for the new version and the major difference between them is removal of previously deprecated methods.

btd1337 commented on 2020-11-06 21:32 (UTC) (edited on 2020-11-06 21:39 (UTC) by btd1337)

It needs update to support libwingpanel-3.0.so

https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=wingpanel-git

quequotion commented on 2020-09-24 14:55 (UTC)

Major changes! I've updated this package, mostly changing the dependencies.

First, I've dropped gconf because it hasn't been needed for quite some time (needs to be dropped from pantheon-session as well, btw).

Also dropped is cerbere, which is deprecated. This change is not reccomended for pantheon-session (5.0.3), which is not using gnome-session's --builtin management to keep wingpanel and plank running.

Following Alucryd's lead, I've set this package to depend on the versioned libraries of wingpanel and gala rather than the packages themselves (this should also be done for pantheon-session). The immediate effect will be that you can install this package and have a working wingpanel (2.0). At some point, it may be required to bump those versions in this package, while pantheon-session will remain behind (as the "stable release").

As far as I can tell, nothing as yet has been written explicitly for wingpanel 3.0 (wingpanel-git), but that time will come.

t3pfaffe commented on 2020-08-13 06:36 (UTC)

wingpanel is failing for me as SolarAquarion described as well

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-08-10 17:45 (UTC)

wingpanel had a soname bump which causes wingpanel-git to fail

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-06-17 01:21 (UTC)

onboard is a dependency now

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-03-30 19:59 (UTC)

you can use the focal branch and do this to make it use the arch paths "sed -i 's+usr/libexec+usr/lib+g' autostart/gsd/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.* "

quequotion commented on 2020-03-27 21:49 (UTC)

Historically the development packages and the "stable release" packages were using incompatible API, but that is no longer the case (at the moment, anyway). To make this package easier to install, and to help installing Pantheon on Archlinux transition to a "stable release" basis, drop its "*-git" dependencies to their stable versions, add conflicts=(pantheon-session) and provides=(pantheon-session), and catch up to upstream (drop gconf and cerbere):

pantheon-unstable with all its git packages is still by definition unstable, you can try launching the components separately in a terminal and see which one gives you trouble.

StinkingFish commented on 2019-02-03 07:22 (UTC)

Also encountered libmutter-2 error, however it passed through it when I tried it again.

It appears installed perfectly, however, when logged-in in lightdm, it gave a error "Something seems wrong" and made me log out.

Any solution?

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-10-31 13:53 (UTC)

quequotion commented on 2018-03-03 13:16 (UTC) (edited on 2018-03-03 13:32 (UTC) by quequotion)

Somehow this package skips over the xdg autostart for cebere, which is a symlink in the upstream package: https://github.com/elementary/session-settings/blob/master/autostart/cerbere.desktop

This is probably the reason why we've been having trouble starting cerbere in ArchLinux.

EDIT, then again, I have r107.17e088e-1 (meson branch) installed. I suppose I'll just downgrade for now.

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-01-02 15:38 (UTC)

@alucryd i transmitted ownership to you

alucryd commented on 2018-01-02 15:32 (UTC)

Thanks but no thanks. I'm sorry but I will not trust someone who copy pastes PKGBUILDs, making many mistakes in the process, with co-maintainership on one of my packages. To me, you really don't seem like you know what you're doing here. The indicator package I just took over was a joke, and this one still lists bzr in makedepends even though it's pulling from git now.

You can keep it, I'll maintain my own on GitHub, my unofficial repository builds from GitHub anyway.

SolarAquarion commented on 2018-01-02 15:23 (UTC)

There is a typo upstream, such that /xsessions/meson.build installs pantheon.desktop to /usr/share/xessions:

Hopefully the elementary devs take care of it soon; otherwise we'll need to patch around it:

quequotion commented on 2017-12-25 14:10 (UTC)

Shouldn't this depend on pantheon-default-settings-git instead of -bzr?

pantheon-default-settings-bzr is bitrotten; dependencies gone missing, etc.

alucryd commented on 2017-05-26 08:36 (UTC)

The Gnome session files still rely on the ugly hack in ubuntu's gnome-settings-daemon which restores the gnome-settings-daemon executable. I modified them for now, which should make pantheon start again. Note that there's an issue when pantheon-terminal is installed which makes wingpanel crash at startup, and even with it uninstalled wingpanel always crashes when any action is performed atm.

quequotion commented on 2017-05-15 16:14 (UTC)

Maybe it would be better to have wingpanel-bzr and slingshot-launcher-bzr in depends(), if only to simplify installation. Also, why not pull in plank(-bzr) as well? Before the recent changes I made to the wiki page, it incorrectly said that this package would pull wingpanel-bzr, slingshot-launcher-bzr, and plank-bzr.

alucryd commented on 2016-09-12 16:52 (UTC)

@jeyhun660: It's all in the name, install wingpanel and switchboard. BTW, those are probably errors on slingshot-launcher, not on this package.

Since they branched upstream, there are no new updates for those pantheon bzr builds. Could someone correct this? Or do I have to use git packages?

gala-bzr in my repo does not depend on granite-bzr, and granite-bzr provides granite, there is no conflict there... I'm not responsible for mistakes in packages I don't maintain so take it to gala-bzr.

Dyamon commented on 2013-11-09 15:34 (UTC)

The pantheon session launches okay, but since wingpanel doesn't work right now, you only get a black screen. I have filed a bug for wingpanel, but still no fix unfortunately. https://bugs.launchpad.net/wingpanel/+bug/1192886

Senth commented on 2012-12-17 03:07 (UTC)

Thanks, i did it the problem persist.. pantheon-session-bzr depend from gala-bzr, and gala-bzr depend from plank-bzr. Then plank-bzr and pantheon-dock-bzr fall in conflict.

alucryd commented on 2012-12-14 11:31 (UTC)

pantheon-dock-bzr provides plank-bzr. You can also ask the gala maintainer to depend on pantheon-dock-bzr as it should, instead of plank-bzr.

z0w0 commented on 2012-12-14 11:05 (UTC)

gala-bzr depends on plank-bzr which conflicts with pantheon-dock-bzr, so how is this meant to work?

alucryd commented on 2012-12-13 18:39 (UTC)

You've got to remove plank-bzr and anything that depends on it, and then you'll be able to install pantheon-session-bzr. Another (dirty) way is this: 'yaourt -Rdd plank-bzr && yaourt -S pantheon-dock-bzr' then you'll be able to install pantheon-session-bzr.

Senth commented on 2012-12-13 18:10 (UTC)

hi, i installed pantheon-dock-bzr first but it's still in confict with plank-bzr when i try to install pantheon-session-bzr. What can i do? Thanks and sorry if i made english mistakes.

OK, I see the situation. Thank you very much.

@xyz3186: Read below. Pantheon-Session does not work at the moment, I've tried modifying it to launch gala and cerbere instead, but I can't load two executables instead of pantheon-session. Only way I've found for now is load your regular gnome session, and run "gala --replace" followed by "cerbere". You should note that your wingpanel will be empty, apart from slingshot. Every indicator I've tried to install made wingpanel crash at start.

thanks. I can install this package now. Another question is how to launch the pantheon-session? I tried to run it via gdm but returned to login screen after a few seconds. The log file under my home directory is empty. Do you have any idea on that?

@xzy3186: pantheon-dock-bzr provides plank-bzr so there should be no dependency problem, just install pantheon-dock-bzr first.

This package required plank-bzr which is one of the dependencies of gala-bzr conflicted with pantheon-dock-bzr.

@helmuthdu: You're right I should learn to read sometime^^ I'll try fiddling with cerbere and see if I can get it to work (just launching it from a terminal throws a lot of errors about wingpanel, but well, gnome-shell is already running).

at the title of the pantheon-session in launchpad: This programm is currently not used see https://launchpad.net/cerbere for our current way of launching and monitoring pantheon

Anyone who can make this work, please share it here. The bug reported here https://bugs.launchpad.net/pantheon-session/+bug/1000170 is what I get when I try to launch the session in a terminal, launching it with gdm leads me to a black screen and back to gdm.
