xdg-user-dirs is required for the shared directory support.

Thanks @sekret I've added aria2 as an optional dependency

If installed quickget uses aria2c for downloading the iso images etc.

So I think it would be correct to add it as an optional dependency.

@ZorinArch They added the desktop file upstream now so I've updated and included it in the packages here on AUR.

@ZorinArch Yep I noticed it was missing in the upstream package too and thought it would be best to wait for them to add it or make a pull request. There's an issue for it here:

@sgnh Thank you for adding i think it needs quickgui.desktop file to shows in the app menu.

sgnh commented on 2021-11-10 17:05 (UTC)

@sekret It didn't resolve quickgui correctly until I bumped it. It's also not clickable in the dependency list. Not sure if it should be. Package works fine now though.

What was the purpose of your last change? Only changing the pkgrel doesn't really make sense imo.

sgnh commented on 2021-11-10 12:31 (UTC)

@ZorinArch Done :)

Hi @sgnh

Can you please add this quickemu GUI.

sekret commented on 2021-10-09 17:28 (UTC)

I still think those tools would be better included as OPTIONAL dependencies.

We'd have to check if there's an additional tool that ALL supported OSes need. That one then could and should be installed as a dependency, but e.g. swtpm is definitely not required by e.g. the linux distributions, so it should be OPTIONAL.

Still, thanks for including this package here, it's reeeeally nice tool!

Thanks @sekret and @aloxaf. I've added the dependencies and patched the incorrect OVMF paths. The OVMF paths are also being fixed upstream so it shouldn't be a problem in the future.

Please add cdrtools as an optional dependency. I just wanted to install windows 11, which requires mkisofs for installation.

Please also add swtpm as an optional dependency. Windows 11 requires it.

I don't know of other missing optdepends yet.

I met two problems when using this with Win 10.

  1. quickget needs mkisofs(from cdrtools)
  2. Boot from EFI needs edk2-ovmf, and should replace /usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE_4M.fd to /usr/share/OVMF/x64/OVMF_CODE.fd/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_VARS_4M.fd to /usr/share/OVMF/x64/OVMF_VARS.fd
