Build is broken on 0.4. Swayfx now uses wlroots 0.17:

But the PKGBUILD sets an environment variable pointing pkgconfig to /usr/lib/wlroots0.16:

Commenting out this line fixes it. You do not need to uninstall wlroots0.16 if this line is removed.

I also had to manually install scenefx but that seems to be an issue with aurutils and not with the actual package.

If you still run into the wlroots 0.16.2 problem with 0.4, you need to uninstall wlroots0.16 if you have both it and wlroots (0.17) installed

yay -Rc wlroots0.16 (check that nothing needs it).

Swayfx 0.4 working correctly with wlroots 0.17

Absolutely correct. Uninstalling swayfx, then wlroots0.16, then reinstalling swayfx worked. Thanks for the heads up!

wlroots0.16 had to be installed to use swayfx 3.5, uninstall it and it should build

I'm having precisely the opposite problem of rstacruz, where wlroots requires wlroots >=0.17.0, but pkgconfig says I have wlroots 0.16.2.

Oddly enough, I do have wlroots 0.17.2 as per the last update I did, which makes me wonder where pkgconfig is getting its info from.

Still haven't found an answer so I'd appreciate the support.

Here's the full recording:

Edit: As KatStuffs pointed out, it was an issue upgrading from the previous version

Swayfx and all other Swayfx packages on the AUR do not build on Artix Linux as there is a SystemD requirement despite the original on Github not requiring it.

Since this package is almost a drop-in replacement for sway (the binary is called sway, the config goes in the same place as sway's), I think that it would make sense to also install contrib scripts to /usr/share/sway/scripts as well (rather than the current /usr/share/swayfx/scripts). I personally relied on grimshot being at /usr/share/sway/, and its disappearance there when I changed to swayfx caused some confusion, which I could imagine also happening to other users.

EDIT: note that this is a trivial change to the PKGBUILD: just change the $pkgname on line 76 to sway instead.

I had problems with upgrading wlroots as well. Arch repos now have wlroots upgraded to v0.17, but swayfx needs wlroots v0.16.

The fix was to install wlroots0.16.

pacman -Syu wlroots0.16

Btw, I wasn't able to do this at first because it conflicted with wlroots, so I had to remove wlroots first

pacman -Rsc wlroots
# ^ uninstalls wlroots, swayfx, and gamescope

pacman -Syu wlroots0.16

yay swayfx gamescpoe
# ^ installs swayfx and gamescope again
