@pobrn: That would in principle also do it.

What about

git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'


That's one of the options the VCS package guidelines suggests, and it's used by multiple other -git packages. At the moment that gives a reasonable value: 2.0.12.r2.g2af6b00.

Can you prepend upstream official software version to the $pkgver?

git describe --tags reveals for me currently 2.0.12, which is also what touchegg --version prints out.

A ${pkgver} could then look like:

pkgver() {
    cd "${_pkgname}"
    _ver="$(git describe  --tags | sed 's|^v||' | sed 's|-[^-]*$||' | tr '-' '.')"
    _rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
    _date="$(git log -1 --date=format:"%Y%m%d" --format="%ad")"
    _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

    if [ -z "${_ver}" ]; then
        error "Version could not be determined."
        return 1
        printf '%s' "${_ver}+r${_rev}.${_date}.${_hash}"

which currently yields 2.0.12+r591.20211021.baedd79.

If you change the versioning scheme, don't forget to increment $epoch (i.e. set epoch=1).

And then you can also change

provides=("${_pkgname}") to

Thanks for maintaining!

@chrishoage: thanks, I have hopefully corrected the problem.

Building in a clean chroot with aurutils causes this error

-- Found XINPUT: TRUE  
-- Checking for module 'gtk+-3.0'
--   Package 'gtk+-3.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.19/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:553 (message):

Building the non -git version of this package is successful. Comparing the two PKGBUILD this one is missing at least gtk3 as a dependency

That's because geis is another AUR package :

Install it before installing touchegg or use an aur helper.

"touchegg" needs to be added to $provides, so that touchegg-gcc-git won't complain about unmet dependencies.
