Out of date

I'm afraid a new source change is in order:


and add 'ffmpegthumbnailer' to depends

There's a maintenance git here as suggested by upstream:

Thank you! I was able to successfully build it.

orschiro commented on 2014-04-02 17:37

I would like to test spacefm-git. However, the built process fails with the following error. Any ideas what is wrong?

flu, your privatepaste link below is broken. I am orphaning this package now so if you or someone else can maintain it that would be helpful - thanks.

@ivanmmj: That's the best excuse I've heard in awhile. ;) Best of luck!

Sorry, buying a house and have a baby on the way. I wouldn't have time to maintain it. I don't use this package, either. I just noticed the issue and thought I'd help out. Hopefully you'll find someone, though.

@ivanmmj: Okay, trying the shallow clone again. I'm not on an Arch machine atm so untested. If you or someone else would like to maintain this let me know and I'll orphan it.

Also, this changes spacefm-git to a GTK3 build, since [community] spacefm uses GTK3 now. There is also an AUR spacefm-gtk2. Someone could create a spacefm-gtk2-git if desired.

If you use "--depth 1", please make sure to add:
rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname/.git/shallow"
after the following line:
rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"

This will fix the cloning locally from a shallow clone.

Been using full time for months, good work!

@martadinata666: I'm not familiar with globalmenu. If this problem appears to be in spacefm please open a bug report and specify exactly what you're attempting to do in spacefm and what the result is - iow how to reproduce this (without xcfe panel involved). fyi the 'WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT' appears to be an unresolved gtk issue - it usually goes away once you click on the file list after opening spacefm. That warning may be unrelated to the problem you're having. You can open an issue here:

martadinata666 commented on 2012-07-30 11:35

umm, im using globalmenu on xfce4 panel, and got (spacefm:2667): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_event: assertion `WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed when try open menu, the doesn't show it self... this is not happen on old pcmanfm...

IgnorantGuru commented on 2012-07-23 21:32

This package now uses the new --disable-pixmaps configure option to install icons to share/icons/hicolor instead of share/pixmaps, which improves gtk caching. See

IgnorantGuru commented on 2012-04-09 21:25

Ok should be fixed - I tried added --depth 1 to the git clone but then the local clone doesn't work. I have changed it back, but someone might want to try to figure out how to do a shallow clone as it seems unnecessary to download the whole history.

Sadly, I'm having this error:
==> Starting make...
Cloning into '/tmp/pacaurtmp-asdf/spacefm-git/src/spacefm-build'...
fatal: attempt to fetch/clone from a shallow repository
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

IgnorantGuru commented on 2012-04-06 16:02

I added conflicts and provides spacefm - shouldn't be anything else

ridikulusrat commented on 2012-04-06 15:36

No "conflicts" or "provides" for spacefm?

IgnorantGuru commented on 2012-04-06 13:13

This pkg installs the 'next' branch of SpaceFM (the upcoming release as a work in progress, updated more frequently). Alternatively, the master branch is the last released version, which may be installed from
