Please add swayidle as an optional depedency. On Wayland (non-Gnome), swayidle should be used instead of xprintidle to enable smart pause plugin to query idle time.

@TPXP: Please consider including the third-party plugins. See my PKGBUILD.

Updated to add python-croniter as an optional dependency. As for transparency, you should file a bug upstream, I won't maintain patches here ^^

The transparency is gone. Wonder if it's xfce's fault or not.
edit: I was just curious if anyone else has the same problem.

This now requires python-croniter.

EDIT: It's optional for for Health Stats plugin.

Thanks for your comments, and apologies for the delay I didn't have time to update the package in a while.

The offending code for files in the home path is Fixed by setting PYTHONUSERBASE (see

@TPXP As suggested by @yochananmarqos the package should not install things to the user's home directory. The issues I mentioned below about the autostart and icons came are caused by this.

git is missing from makedepends() and python-pip is not required.

The v should not be part of the pkgver. You can use s/^v// to remove it:

    git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Packages should not install anything to a user's home directory. Dirty fix to add at the end of the package() function:

    install -d "$pkgdir/usr/share"
    mv "$pkgdir"/home/*/.local/share/{applications,icons} "$pkgdir/usr/share"
    rm -rf "$pkgdir/home"

Could be just me, but the desktop entry in ~/.config/autostart is a broken link to a desktop entry in /usr/share/applications/. There is no desktop entry for safeeyes in that directory. So I just copy the safeeyes desktop entry from ~/.local/share/applications to it.

I think the program automatically create the broken link in ~/.config/autostart when started for the first time.

There is also a problem with the icon not showing up for different users. Still need to figure this out.
