Hi @hero, I thought Git was included on base-devel, added to buildeps! About the guideline, I think that applies for official packages and not for packages from the AUR. This is a workaround as you can see on the previews comments; if you have a better solution for this, it's welcomed!

Hey, so according to this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_packaging_standards packages should never install into /usr/local/.

But what is more important is, that git is missing as a build dependency.

Good idea, thanks vknmnn.

instead of forcing install, PKGBUILD should install to /usr/local/bin which would take precedence over /usr/bin. (line #27) Likewise, spotifywm.so should not be installed to the same directory as spotify, to avoid conflicts on updates. It's enough to just put it in /usr/lib/ and link it in the spotify.sh (/usr/local/bin/spotify)

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/spotifywm.so
