I think yay will support this way of specifying dependencies in the future. At least I saw some statement about it somewhere on GitHub. Note that yay shouldn't be the limiting factor for what pacman/makepkg features to use.

Please fix your packages to work with YAY at the very least. Or consider "fixing" yay instead so that your beloved way of using "depends" works.

What you're doing here just wastes peoples time trying to figure out how to use your great creation (syncthingtray)! Your preferred way to use depends doesn't tell us which package we need to install. Using yay and makepkg it just tells you about missing dependencies that look like libraries. Using this very page i'm commenting on is the ONLY way to see which package i actually need to install.

The result of this is that we - those that want to try this package out - are forced to resolve the dependencies ourselves. This should be a solved problem in linux. Therefore again, don't introduce your own "i know better" dependency hell. Help yay out to resolve this or "follow the crowd" and fix it so it's usable.

These soname depends (explained in the last paragraph of allow tracking dependencies on soname level (as it is done by other distributions often by default). This helps preventing errors because a library cannot be found as pacman can avoid installing an incompatible set of package in the first place. Many official packages use this feature and its use is increasing also in the AUR.

So that would mean that at least yay, paru and pikaur are having the same problem?

What's wrong with using that:

depends=('qtutilities-qt6' 'qtforkawesome-qt6' 'c++utilities' 'boost-libs'
         'qt6-svg' 'openssl' 'desktop-file-utils' 'xdg-utils')

Those dependencies are present in the AUR. The "Dependencies" section on this page shows the packages the dependencies are provided by. Note that the warning message lists certain dependencies but calls them "packages" which is wrong. Dependencies are not the same as packages. You should report a bug on the AUR helper you're using.

I ran into the following error the since the laetest update:

:: error: Can't resolve dependencies for AUR package 'syncthingtray-qt6':
:: error: Dependencies missing for syncthingtray-qt6
:: warning: Following packages cannot be found in AUR:

Seems like there's a wrong sha256 checksum in the PKGBUILD.

bdd40eee7f16e8d4f53d153db4e0288f83b92a39bc33c96b22568f25712fe3d4 works for me.

@Martchus ah okay makes sense. Thanks!

You cannot build the KDE integrations for the Qt 6 version because KDE frameworks have not been ported to Qt 6 yet. (Maybe you could already build some of the frameworks against Qt 6 and use that instead of officially provided packages but I haven't done it yet and therefore Syncthing Tray itself has not been ported yet to KF6.)

@plague-doctor You want to install c++utilities, qtutilities-qt6, and qtforkawesome-qt6 from AUR first, in that order. Then this package will build.
