This is great. The other repos fail for me, endless dependency chasing. This was a breeze.

@Snich, thank you, made the change.

Hi, it seems that the .desktop entry is incorrect. The reason being this line in PKGBUILD:

sed -i -E "s|Exec=sioyek|Exec=env DESKTOPINTEGRATION=0 APPIMAGELAUNCHER_DISABLE=1 sioyek|" "squashfs-root/sioyek.desktop"

It doesn't work because DE looks for env DESKTOPINTEGRATION=0 APPIMAGELAUNCHER_DISABLE=1 executable, treating whole string (including spaces) as file path, which is missing, of course.

  • please rename source to be non-conflicting source=("${pkgname}-${pkgver}.zip::${pkgver}/")
  • conflicts sioyek-git is not needed as sioyek-git correctly provides and conflicts sioyek
  • The GPL3 license is not mandatory to install in Arch/AUR pkgbuilds, as is already provided by the 'licenses' package
  • You can remove 'The latest stable AppImage of Sioyek' from pkgdesc as this is already supposed to be stable and using appimage from the pkgname
