Liked the PKGBUILD but was a little bummed when I noticed it made adding patches a little more difficult. Made an autopatcher to simplify the process a bit. Let me know if there are any improvements I could make to this.

This contains the absolute path to the directory where the PKGBUILD is located, which is usually the output of $(pwd) when makepkg is started. Use of this variable is deprecated and strongly discouraged.

I found time to update this, but just stumbled upon your post after updating. I’ll have a look at your PKGBUILD and adjust accordingly. Thank you good sir!

Active maintainership on this package is great news. I recently started working on a couple issues with the aur/st package:

  • making the configuration via config.h visible to the user
  • making working terminfo entries available in the package

Feel free to have a look at my solutions and copy them or improve upon them as you please.

Love this terminal, I’ll maintain this package. Give me a day or two and I’ll have a working PKGBUILD.

I have one st build with easy changeable colorscheme, check that out also.

Can someone please take a look and tell me what I'm doing wrong ?

I have a few questions/comments about this package

#1: You remove the terminfo file; but st-git needs its terminfo. The one packaged with current ncurses does not work with st-git. We need to install that terminfo somewhere.

#2 Your various FLAGS alterations should probably be submitted upstream, not here, no? However, it looks like they were all implemented by now, with the exception of CPPFLAGS, and I assume they did that for a reason. You can take those out of the PKGBUILD.

#3 While we're taking things out of the PKGBUILD, your personal customizations to config.h should probably go in a config.h, not the global AUR package.

#4 Thank you for switching to the tag versions rather than date, but you forgot to update SRCINFO!

great idea prash, I included that.

Please replace line 49 with
patch -Np1 <"$srcdir/$(basename ${file})"

That way, users can include URLs for patches hosted at They might have to modify the sha1sums array, but that's something they can figure out while modifying the source array.
