@jose1711: Please remove the uploaded custom .desktop file and make PKGBUILD use the one provided by source. It can be found in the packagers-readme/remotebox.desktop in the source tarball.

Also I propose these two corrections:

pkgdesc="Open source VirtualBox client for remote management"
optdepends=('freerdp: RDP support' 'rdesktop: RDP support' 'krdc: RDP/VNC support' 'tigervnc: VNC support' 'vinagre: VNC support' 'realvnc-vnc-viewer: VNC support')

RDP and VNC clients listed above are the ones that RemoteBox provides a preset for by default.

Starting from today remotebox segfaults on a fully updated (testing) system if trying to attach a cd to a vms controller. Can somebody else verify this behavior or is it just me?

from "As VirtualBox 7 has been released, RemoteBox 3.2 Pre-Release 1 has been made available for those that have upgraded to VirtualBox 7. Note that this is not an official release so please refrain from distributing or packaging it. This release does not use or support any new features in VirtualBox 7, as it only contains API compatibility fixes. If you are dependant on RemoteBox, the current recommendation is to remain on VirtualBox 6.1.x until an official release of RemoteBox 3.2"

But... as one can't update archlinux installations and just ignore the virtualbox update via pacman --ignore (the kernel modules 'virtualbox-host-modules need to be updated)

are there any recommendations besides just 'hold your breath and wait for remotebox 3.2 official release'?

yes, my fault - the notation has changed from 'gtk2-perl' to 'perl-gtk3', that's irritating :(

…to perl-gtk3, not gtk3-perl

@Harvey thank you for your detective work, PKGBUILD has been updated

Ok, couldn't resist - There seems to be only one dependency that has changed to build this successful: 'gtk2-perl' has to be changed to 'perl-gtk3'. Not unforeseeable as this is the first gtk3 version of remotebox ;)

remotebox 3.0-1 does not work for me: Can't locate in @INC (you may need to install the Gtk3 module) (@INC contains: /usr/share/remotebox /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.34/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl) at /usr/share/remotebox/ line 9. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/remotebox/ line 9. Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/remotebox line 23.

And yes. the gtk3 module is installed: pacman -Qs gtk3 local/gtk3 1:3.24.30+90+g20be04f7ac-1 GObject-based multi-platform GUI toolkit
