Hello Exeat, the community package moreutils ( does also provide a vidir tool - but it's not that obvious because when you query for vidir, you simply cannot find it.

Hi, thanks for your comment. I've just updated the repo, hopefully this works now as expected.

You should edit the PKGBUILD to put the variables inside quotes, as shown, to prevent issues if there are spaces in the current directory name. (Discovered this by trying to build it in a somewhat absurd directory location, but it should have worked anyway, and it works fine with the quotes).

        mkdir -p "$pkgdir"/usr/bin
        cp vidir "$pkgdir"/usr/bin
