This fails to build in a clean chroot as krunner is missing from depends(). kf5-config cannot be used during build to retrieve a system variable and causes this to fail to install to the proper directories. Even if it worked, kdelibs4support is missing from makedepends() so it fails, anyway.

Further PKGBUILD critique:

  • This is missing the source() array, do not use Git commands in the build() function.

  • Since this is a VCS package, the pkgver should be generated by a pkver() function. See VCS package guidelines. Do not invent one. You'll have to use an epoch, otherwise the proper version will be seen as older than the current imaginary version.

  • The license is GPL3

  • The _gitname variable is unnecessary as it's the same as $pkgname. See Package etiquette

  • Do not use msg, see Task Todo List Remove usage of makepkg subroutines from PKGBUILDs

Hmm. Looks like the URL part /s/[hex digits]/t/ changes from time to time and is now invalid again (maybe it's a timestamp or something)... sadly I have no idea how to fix this properly.

updated, thanks!

The download URL format changed. This URL works and the package can be built again.${_srcname}-${pkgver}.zip

==> Validating source files with sha1sums... ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Could you please add 'extra-cmake-modules' to the makedepends. Thanks
