The systemd service won't work straight after installation due to the missing `/var/run/spice-vdagentd` directory. It should be created by `systemd-tmpfiles` as configured by `/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/spice-vdagentd.conf`, but that won't happen until the next reboot or `systemd-tmpfiles --create spice-vdagentd.conf` is run. It could be a good idea to do so in a post install script.

spice-vdagentd.service is expecting an environment variable SPICE_VDAGENTD_EXTRA_ARGS but file spice-vdagentd.conf[.d] is providing SPICE_VDAGENTD_ARGS and hence doesn't work as expected.

Looks like libsystemd 229 no longer provides a separate This was deprecated with systemd 209, released two years ago, so I cannot explain why upstream continues to use it. I've updated the package with a patch to get it building again.

Build fails with:

checking for LIBSYSTEMD_LOGIN... no
configure: error: libsystemd-login support explicitly requested, but some required packages are not available

I have all listed dependencies installed. Is anybody else having the same problem?

Downloads from seem to still be working for me. OlafLostViking, are you still having this issue?

OlafLostViking commented on 2015-12-18 11:12 seems to have removed their downloads. Using github with the PKGBUILD on the pastebin[1] works, though.

This is missing a build-time dependency on alsa-lib.

Please apply these changes:
* add to depends: 'alsa-lib' 'glib2'
* move from depends to makedepends: 'spice-protocol>=0.12.8'
* Replace "....bz2" by "....bz2"{,.sign}
* Add 'SKIP' between the two sha256sums
* add validpgpkeys=('94A9F75661F77A6168649B23A9D8C21429AC6C82')
* add backup=('etc/conf.d/spice-vdagentd.conf')
* (bump pkgrel to 2)


(I think that only libsystemd is needed as makedepends, but it works now.)
