thank you very much! I will look at it in the next week, because I am currently on vacation.

Fails to build.

==> Bezig met het uitvoeren van package()...
/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/setuptools/ UserWarning: The version specified ('22.04.4-0ubuntu1') is an invalid version, this may not work as expected with newer versions of setuptools, pip, and PyPI. Please see PEP 440 for more details.
error: Multiple top-level packages discovered in a flat-layout: ['po', 'debian', 'contest'].

To avoid accidental inclusion of unwanted files or directories,
setuptools will not proceed with this build.

If you are trying to create a single distribution with multiple packages
on purpose, you should not rely on automatic discovery.
Instead, consider the following options:

1. set up custom discovery (`find` directive with `include` or `exclude`)
2. use a `src-layout`
3. explicitly set `py_modules` or `packages` with a list of names

To find more information, look for "package discovery" on setuptools docs.

The source is not working.

@horsemanoffaith I'll be willing to maintain this package, if you add me as a co-maintainer.

horsemanoffaith commented on 2017-11-04 00:02 (UTC)

Thanks for adding me, Louis. Package is updated!

Louis commented on 2017-11-03 10:10 (UTC)

@horsemanoffaith I've added you as a co-maintainer. You're welcome to update the package.

horsemanoffaith commented on 2017-11-02 04:45 (UTC)

New package available... please update. If you'd like, I'd be willing to co-maintain or take over maintaining this package. I maintain many other Ubuntu-based packages here on the AUR.

@abdulhakeem They should all be placed directly in /usr/share/backgrounds and not in its own folder. I might consider changing that when 17.04 gets released. Running this command as a normal user should give you the answer you're looking for: pacman -Qlq ubuntu-wallpapers | grep /usr/share/backgrounds/ | egrep -v '/$|.xml'
