There are 2 alternative ways:
1. @aaronfischer splits the package into 25 different ones and whenever there is an update he will have to update 25 individual packages; good for the useres, not so good for the maintainer.
2. @aaronfischer "merges" all the files from the split packages into a single package. This will result in installing binaries, udev rules and .desktop files for 25 devices for every user. Less work for the maintainer, not practical for the users.

As is it, the maintainer maintains one single "split-package" and users that use an AUR helper such as yaourt, can uninstall the packages they don't need. This way users get to keep only the files they need to support their own device and the maintainer does not have to modify and commit 25 packages every time there is an update.

Hope this helps clear it.

@edward_81: Please read the previous comments here. I've talked to Stefan about this. Every version of roccat-tools need a specific version of libgaminggear to work correctly. There are two options here: Consistent/reliable package and a little bit of hasle on upgrades -- or easy upgrade process and the chance of a broken package with weird bugs everywhere. I've choosen the first option.

Is possible to change the dependency line for libgaminggear from:
Because every time i try to upgrade the system with yaourt/aur, it complain that roccat-tool-common need that exactly version of libgaminggear.

When I try to install the XTD AUR packages, I get the following error:

no results found for roccat-tools package failed to retrieve roccat-tools package

CMake 3.13.3 broke this PKGBUILD because it now requires to specify a build directory. As mentioned in CMake's issue tracker it seems that not specifying a build directory was never a supported scenario to begin with.

The fix is as easy as adding a dot:

cmake . -DFOO=bar instead of just
cmake -DFOO=bar

... as can be seen in the git history of another AUR package's PKGBUILD.

The CMake guys recently patched this behavior but CMake will still issue a warning; also, who knows when the new CMake version is due and when it'll land in the Arch Linux Extra repo.

Thanks! BTW, the libgaminggear package is affected by this as well.

Thanks for the hint @astaoth, I've updated the libgaminggear package.

Astaoth commented on 2018-12-28 19:39

Hey here ! I'm not able to build this package ! I get this error :

I then retried after having edited the pkgbuild in order to keep only the nyth part, and here is the error I have :

Any idea of how to solve it ?

EDIT : ok, it looks like I read only the pined comments and not the latests ....

EDIT 2 : same as @gripped, I had to copy the same file from the cmake-3.12 directory. Current cmake version is 3.13.

aaronfischer commented on 2018-08-28 09:45

@gripped: Thanks for your hint. The version of cmake bumped to 3.12. I've updated the package and cranked up the pkgver on the libgaminggear package. Please update the libgaminggear package, then you can install the roccat-tools packages.

Does not build unless I manually copy a file into the scrdir

cp /usr/share/cmake-3.11/Modules/FindGAMINGGEAR0.cmake ($scrdir)/roccat/roccat-tools-kovaplus/src/roccat-tools-5.7.0/cmake_modules

Same error as in other comments "Could not find a package configuration file provided by "GAMINGGEAR0" (requested version 0.15.1) with any of the following names:"

libgaminggear is/was up to date

@foxhunt72: Try installing core/sqlite. Not sure if this is a new dependency. Let me know if this helps. If so, I will put it to the dependency array.
