I couldn't get this to build. Based on release notes, probably a compatibility issue with gcc-10. Here are the changes I made to the PKGBUILD to get it to work on my computer:

@mazieres, will do once I update this package today or tomorrow.

Consider moving /etc/systemd/system/spacenavd.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/spacenavd.service, since that's where packages generally install service files, vs. user-edited files under /etc.

rc.d has been removed bcz systemd.

The spacenavd.service file here doesn't work for me. It throws:
spacenavd[2027]: failed to open X11 display ":0.0"
when the service attempts to start, then the daemon does seemingly nothing.

A hacky workaround for this is to
sudo cp /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority /root/.Xauthority
where 1000 is your UID. That allows the root user (and thus the service) to talk to the X server so that the daemon works.

The spnavd_ctl shell script uses xdpyinfo and "spnavd_ctl x11 start" will fail if xdpyinfo is not installed. Can you add a dependency on xdpyinfo?
