I also get "Error: command install is not defined". I rebuild the package just now.

pacman -Qs texlive-localmanager < local/texlive-localmanager-git 0.7.r3.gbbd8488-1

@hv15 so we can remove this one and install tllocalmgr-git? Thank you very much!

Hi all, I've created a new package-base:, and have requested that this package be merged in.

Package is broken. To install it, I had to manually installed the dependencies (even if it might not be mandatory) then I made a git clone, modified the PKGBUILD with @hv12 patch and it worked.

@sharethewisdom I also emailed XZS and haven't received a reply (yet?). Regarding your three points, I think 2 and 3 are good. I'm not so sure about point 1, doesn't tllocalmgr download tlpdb itself?

I'd be happy to take over maintenance of this package, assuming that's all right with XZS, but am not familiar with the merge request policy.

I did not receive a response to my email to XZS last week (2020/01/16). I hope not to cause offense, but I guess someone could create a new aur package and submit a merge request to take over this one.

I also send the mail to Rémy, and I mentioned my preferences in reference to my patch:

1) add the exception: 'next if ( $col eq "tlpdb" );' at line 230, because could be installed;

2) makepkg not to clean the build and .SRCINFO could be added so that users can add the generated to a custom local repo;

3) add generated packages to a 'texlive-local' group for convenience

Point 2 is so that aur package managers to ignore these packages, (which are not in the aur). See my issue:

I'd like to hear your opinion about that.

So, if I understand correctly, the maintainer of this project has been absent for a while now, and that's why the vanilla PKGBUILD here doesn't build? (i'm getting an error in pkgver()).

Does anyone have news about XZS ? Maybe you [hv15] could become the maintener of the project ? (Indeed, you are now :3)

What is meant by this? Is hv15 co-maintainer?

I've tried with this patch (which has been givne above). But it's with this patch I get the error with the prepare function().

And I'm sorry for the format of my error message : I'vnt found how to properly print it.

edit : OK, i've speaken too quickly : the two PKGBUILD were different. My bad, sorry hv15, and thx for your help. The latest you give works at me.

@LHP22 there was an update to localmanager upstream (see 1), so the patch no longer works. Try the following patch instead:
