@Thah. See my comment on 2015-02-07 17:57.

The build error below is probably due to /bin/sh being linked to a not-Bash
shell, e.g. Dash; see my comment on 2015-02-07 09:36: Make uses /bin/sh as a
shell which only guaranties POSIX compliance. The makefile uses bash
extension(s). See my previous comment for a workaround/fix.

Version 0.20-1 compiles fine under Dash but 'make install' still needs Bash.

checkbashisms reports possible problems with brace expansions.

@jefbed. I can't reproduce this - it all works fine for me. The problem must at your end. Are you using an aur helper programme?

Package is not out-of-date, but dependencies have to be fixed. 'pacman<4.3' causing issues with pacman 5.0 installed.

@kachelaqa : superb! many thanks!

kachelaqa commented on 2015-11-26 16:55

You need to install libxkbcommon-x11 (due to bug FS#40468, which has still not been properly fixed).
