@LaserEyess adjusted, thanks!

The new pkg-build is incorrect a bit:

  • libproxy: not needed, there's no direct proxy code in trg (though libsoup uses it, internally)
  • perl: not needed, python-docutils is used instead
  • geoip: removed, unnecessary dep

LaserEyess commented on 2022-10-09 14:47 (UTC)

There's going to be a change in the build deps coming soon: the change from curl to libsoup3

I would appreciate it if people here would test this change out, and make sure there are no major regressions. In theory this should make RPC faster and more efficient, but the most important thing is that it works for just regular usage.

Some other changes you can make:

  • desktop-file-utils is a makedepend
  • libnotify has been removed in favor of glib native notifications
  • Your pod2man env is incorrect and unnecessary, you need to add perl as a makedepend and it will be detected properly

TingPing commented on 2022-01-12 19:22 (UTC)

You can also remove intltool from the deps.

Hey there, this project changed the build system to meson, could you update the PKGBUILD with the following patch?

Okay, since I am using it, I created patch and adopted the package.

TingPing commented on 2020-03-20 08:57 (UTC)

I've disowned the package, it shouldn't be hard to fix it building.

This project is abandoned.
