In that case I'll switch python-quamash for python-qasync when I get a chance to update this package.

Seems to be working very well. I submitted a PR to the gh repo with qasync as the dependency.

Unless python-qasync can provide the python-quamash API exactly, probably not. You may need to use the -git package.

@daviding; you can build quamash with my comment just below yours over there. Also, the quamash-git is up to date with that fix.

Lastly, @kbumsik, apparently, there exists qasync ( which is a maintained fork of quamash. Would it be possible to use this instead of quamash?

The dependency on quamash is failing.

I've tried my hand at cleaning up this PKGBUILD, please let me know if this works for you.

Same error as in the out of date flag:

fatal: repository '/home/nico/.cache/yay/virtscreen/src' does not exist
==> ERROR: Failure while creating working copy of src git repo
error making: virtscreen

Only works if installed manually with makepkg on Manjaro, does not build via yay. Same problem as reported by other users.

Please change the dependency from python-quamash-git to python-quamash. That way either package can be chosen with an AUR helper during install.

What is $_pkgname_camelcase? There's no reason for a variable that's only used once, especially when it's nonsensical and longer than the value.

EDIT: Here's a proper package using the

pkgdesc="Make your iPad/tablet/computer as a secondary monitor on Linux"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('xorg-xrandr' 'x11vnc' 'python-pyqt5' 'qt5-quickcontrols2' 'python-quamash' 'python-netifaces')
optdepends=('arandr: for display settings option')

build() {
    cd "VirtScreen-$pkgver"
    python build

package() {
    cd "VirtScreen-$pkgver"
    python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1 --skip-build

That's what I thought too, but emptying the cache doesn't make any difference whatsoever.
