Hi, yay keeps the package in a place you can look for in the man page, do $ man yay and search for CACHE.

But anyway, definitely do not use an AUR helper for installing st. It's simply not designed to.

I suggest you read and maybe open your own thread in the forum.

markboston, When you've downloaded the package, gunzipped and untared it, there are 3 files : PKGBUILD README.terminfo.rst terminfo.patch

Generate config.def.h by running: $ makepkg --nobuild

Modify it, for instance : #define MODKEY Mod4Mask

Build it without reextracting the source: $ makepkg --noextract

Install the package: $ makepkg --install

It's been a long time, correct me if I'm wrong.

where is the config.def.h file located? ive looked through my whole system and can't find this file.

It's been now 2 months since this (super important) PKGBUILD has been marked out of date, and no response was given.

Has anyone tried to contact the listed contacts ?

Hello, since packages are now compressed with zstandard by default, can you please add that pattern to .gitignore:

diff --git a/.gitignore b/.gitignore
index 2d32340..2d7d03c 100644
--- a/.gitignore
+++ b/.gitignore
@@ -1,4 +1,5 @@

Thank you.

Please consider using the patch(1) options -d and -p instead of --directory and --strip, so that GNU patch is not required.

Do not use makepkg subroutines (e.g. error, msg, msg2, plain, warning) as they might change at any time. To print data, use printf or echo.

This package is needlessly using warning.
