Unlike the package in the main repo, this one doesn't compile with support for i3. This impacts the window switching functionality. Can this be fixed?

Latest build complain about a missing 'xcb-util-xrm' dependency..

@TrialnError: package updated, thanks!

Mostly the missing git submodule handling should cause this.
See for a modified PKGBUILD or a diff with some changes.
Dunno if complete

Hi, I just tried building latest version and makepkg has failed at

./configure: line 4891: syntax error near unexpected token 'xcb-aux'

@TrialinError or @bchretien, could you please guide me towards a possible solution to this? Thanks

Upstream merged a big PR which changed rofi significantly.
Buildwise it needs to be checked if the deps still are all right and if it's necessary to update the prepare function with
git submodule init
git submodule update
as the repo now includes a submodule.

@turtil: thanks, dependency added ;-)

startup-notification is a required dep. fails install without, During the configure stage.

Just a heads up if your colors break after rofi dropped xft: now that rofi is using only cairo, it seems that Xorg color names are no longer supported. So if your Xresources refer to color names, just replace them by the hex-coded version.

@TrialnError: thanks for the notification! Since rofi is linking explicitly with cairo (and not only just through pangocairo), it doesn't sound too absurd to add it as a dependency, does it?
