The two for-loops for the manpages can be replaced by:

# manpages
install -Dm644 ./doc/generated/*.1 -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1"

in package(). Gzip is done automatically.

There is now both =nightly and =stable' in PKGBUILD. The file states "stable rustc".

Hi! Please set the --target-dir option for people that have set target-dir option on ~/.cargo/config.toml. If not set, the target directory is not found and we can't install the package.

See for information on build target

Is this package basically unusable right now via the AUR? I figured this would be fixed a week and a half later...

I tried installing as is and get an error about the target. I change the tool chain to nightly in the pkgbuild and I get compilation errors for swww-daemon.

Did I miss a thread with more info, or if this is something still being explored?

This package can't build because of the export RUSTUP_TOOLCHAIN=stable in the PKGBUILD.

Please change it to export RUSTUP_TOOLCHAIN=nightly

I would recommend sticking with 0.7.3 for the time being.

That did it, @Static_Rocket. Thanks! @HakierGrzonzo, please include


in the PKGBUILD.

Hey @Chais , that linker error you are reporting looks exactly what I saw with the swww-git repo and it's related to the following:

It's the reason why so many official rust packages have the lto option disabled:
