I have created the package dummydroid-bin, which is a companion software for raccoon.

So I recommend that you

  • add dummydroid to the optdepends array,
  • add groups=("raccoon").

Can you please add

  • provides=("raccoon"),
  • conflicts=("raccoon")?

Regards and thanks for maintaining!

Build fails for me:

==> Starting build()...

Welcome to Gradle 6.8.2!

Here are the highlights of this release:
 - Faster Kotlin DSL script compilation
 - Vendor selection for Java toolchains
 - Convenient execution of tasks in composite builds
 - Consistent dependency resolution

For more details see

Starting a Gradle Daemon (subsequent builds will be faster)

By the way, can you move the download of "gradle", if it still is necessary and cannot be accomplished by depending on another package, to the prepare() function, so that build() does not need internet access?

I'm not a huge fan of shareware feel the latest generation of this app has taken on, and Yalp does a terrific job of the same thing directly on the phone so I haven't been using this for the past few months. I'm disowning the package in the hope that a more interested party might want to take the development process on :)

The description misleading as one expects to have access to the google play store.

@di72nn: That would indeed be better- the only reason I hadn't done it that was from the beginning is because I wasn't aware that this was an option. I'm including that change in the update I'm about to push (once I finish testing the build in a clean chroot) Thanks for letting me know!

Hello prurigro, wouldn't it be better to add `-Draccoon.home="$HOME/.config/Raccoon"` to '/usr/bin/raccoon' instead of patching a source file? Update: replaced `~` with `$HOME`.

@ackalker: I didn't actually realize raccoon took command line args, but it totally makes sense to support them if they exist- thanks for letting me know!

ackalker commented on 2015-07-06 20:17 (UTC)

Could you please support passing command line arguments to raccoon? This is working in raccoon package in the AUR. Perhaps change line 91 in PKGBUILD from: "java -jar -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on /usr/share/$_pkgname/$_pkgname.jar" \ to : "java -jar -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on /usr/share/$_pkgname/$_pkgname.jar \"\$@\"" \ I've tested this change by doing: $ raccoon -h and it works (it prints usage help in terminal). Thanks in advance.
