@amstan: You could try to convince upstream, that it's a good idea to do another release. See this issue for more info (and maybe start commenting on 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Please don't mark this out-of-date because it is behind git master, this package follows releases.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.

Sorry, I just did mark it out-of-date.

I respect the original idea behind the version of this package, but when upstream doesn't seem to care about making regular releases(none for 5 years, yet still commits in master) is there a point to track it here?

@Lekensteyn: thanks for the hint. It's removed now.

There is no need for the plugdev group, modern systems will use the "uaccess" udev tag that grant the seated user access. (plugdev was needed for older Ubuntus, so not applicable for Arch)

cool, will update tomorrow!

@dvzrv It has been disowned.

@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.

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.
