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.

✘ nosync@neutrino  ~  yay -Scc [sudo] password for nosync:

@NoSync Sound like the yay cache is corrupted for some reason. Could you try yay -Scc and retry reinstalling?

Can't quite figure out this.
