@atriix: I have removed all unneeded functionality from your PKGBUILD and added sysusers.d integration [1]. Especially the creation of the plugdev group was really ugly, as it will never be removed after installing this package.

Please update the build script accordingly!

btw: What part of the UI does the patch fix actually? Solaar seems to work without it.

Please don't mark this out-of-date because it is behind git master, this package follows releases. Use solaar-git to follow git.

Thanks for maintaining!

the post_update function can be removed as pacman features hooks that will run automatically.

This issue exists with both old and new receivers.

solaar-cli -d show

Conflict with ltunify-git removed.

However you may want to look at solaar-git instead since there have been no releases drafted since Jul 24, 2013.

Manpage for solaar-cli is missing!

@atriix Can you revert that change? I've adopted and updated ltunify-git yesterday by renaming the udev rules file so the packages can be co-installed.

@jamesan PKGBUILD has been updated to conflict with ltunify-git

jamesan commented on 2016-11-02 10:36

This package conflicts with ltunify-git as both packages install /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/42-logitech-unify-permissions.rules. At a glance, the file as specified in both packages define identical udev rules (except that Solaar includes an additional USB product ID, 0xc52e, for the MK220 classic Nano receiver).

Can either:
1. the file be renamed so both packages can be installed in a system; or
2. ltunify-git be added to the PKGBUILD conflicts variable to acknowledge that both packages cannot be installed at the same time as they are now?

I'm submitting a similar comment for the ltunify-git package as well, as only one PKGBUILD needs to change to resolve this issue.

@Lekensteyn, I guess this also explains why on Wayland there is no tray icon...
