@gaelic, please update the package version at least occasionally.

Please do not flag this package outdated. It is a git package. Just reinstall it.

Okay, gaelic. I've figured out what was happenning. I initially used pacaur which cloned your AUR package into a directory 'paper-icon-theme-git' and then the PKGBUILD tries to clone the upstream source repo into a directory $pkgname which is set as paper-icon-theme-git in the PKGBUILD. This is where the conflict happens. Simply removing the $pkgname:: from the source array fixes the issue.

I don't know if this is an issue with pacaur or the PKGBUILD?

EDIT: The issue is with how I have configured pacaur. I have both SRCDEST (makepkg.conf) and AURDEST (pacaur env var) set to the same directory causing this issue. My bad.

Hi. This should not be a problem of the PKGBUILD:

hashhar commented on 2017-04-04 06:51

The installation fails (using pacaur) with 'ERROR: /home/ashhar/makepkg/sources/paper-icon-theme-git is not a clone of'.

I changed the PKGBUILD and was able to build using makepkg.

Here's the diff:

Please note: this is a git package. Update it using the --devel flag with yaourt or pacaur. Please do not flag it out of date as long as there are no problems with the package.

# There are always lots of systenm log with journalctl:
Invalid Context= "Mimetypes" line for icon theme: "/usr/share/icons/Paper/scalable/mimetypes/"

# modify following things to fix it:
sudo vim /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
# find "Context=Mimetypes" change to uppercase "Context=MimeTypes"
# find "Context=Apps" change to "Context=Applications"
# cli check
sed -n '/Context=Mimetypes/p' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme
sed -n '/Context=Apps/p' /usr/share/icons/Paper/index.theme

sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/Paper/

I've provided no a patch for autogen. Please report if there are any problems solved.

gaelic commented on 2016-05-28 09:07


can you please provide your automake version:

automake --version

and also ensure you're using automake in /usr/bin if you have other (older) versions installed:

which automake

should give you

I met the same error when run ./ , and what's more
when I clone the official repository from github and then run ./
It complains the same error, err message is shown below:
---snip--- error: possibly undefined macro: AM_SILENT_RULES
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
