@muflone: Thanks for the offer, however I don't actually use this, I was just bored.

Please remove replaces directive, in accordance with AUR submission guidelines.

the orphan request filed in the past weeks was accepted. Thanks to alyst for its work.

In the case someone (yochananmarqos, ptr1337) wants to co-maintain the package along with me, please let me know

@yochananmarqos: Thanks a lot! For various reasons (there were errors so I couldn't directly use your version, e.g. in my version I don't install a desktop-file).

This is my modified PKGBUILD which I successfully used to install smartgit because it didn't otherwise work (as described earlier: "ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!"):

Hopefully it works next time I update - or I strongly encourage the maintainer to participate and possibly update the PKGBUILD!

@yochananmarqos: Is that PKGBUILD unrelated to the validation error I now get, see below:

==> Validating source files with sha1sums...
    smartgit-linux-22_1_4.tar.gz ... FAILED
    smartgit.desktop ... Passed
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

? I've updated everything and rebooted and the problem persists... @ptr1338: Yes, I think you and/or other people should be co-maintainer to improve the update issues I think exist here. Also, this has been marked out-of-date for close to 2 weeks now... Maybe another person should take over maintaining this package, because it seems the current maintainer is not even participating, even after people try to reach out...?

I've created an improved PKGBUILD using the system JVM instead of the bundled one.

As far as I can tell, version 22.1.4 is no longer served at (this URL just redirects to the downloads page now)

@Pierre: Thanks for your comment. Yes, I have two screens, however moving the window in between the screens doesn't fix the issue. The only workaround I know is to restart smartgit (which I need to do like every 5min when using the software). Any pointers on how to diagnose that would be very welcome.

Pierrre commented on 2023-02-28 12:30 (UTC)

@jcm do you have multiple screens ? I've noticed a similar issue when Smartgit is open on a specific screen. When I move it to the other screen, it doesn't freeze.

jcm commented on 2023-02-28 10:15 (UTC) (edited on 2023-02-28 10:16 (UTC) by jcm)

smartgit's UI regularly freezes on my computer. The menu bar and context menu still works, but any click on the window are ignored. I have to restart smartgit many times a day. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas how to diagnose/fix?
