IMPORTANT: This package always installs the latest insider build (see pkgver() function), so if you want daily updates, just run "makepkg -si" everyday and it will update. I won't be updating pkgver every single day.

@cauebs: That looks like a problem with your AUR helper. Running "makepkg -si" directly in a clean directory works fine for me.

Did I do anything wrong?

@colemickens: Both packages would have to provide the same icon, in the same location, with the same name and that would cause a conflict.

colemickens commented on 2017-10-11 20:32

I don't understand. The desktop files will still be two unique files, they will just both reference the same icon. That shouldn't cause any conflicting that I'm aware of. But I understand if the change is not desired (it would make it impossible to visually distinguish them). It's probably better for Numix, etc, to support the `-insiders` suffixed version anyway...

@colemickens: Sorry, no. If I did that it would conflict with the non-insiders package and they couldn't be installed at the same time.

Bit of a weird ask, but would you consider dropping the `-insiders` suffix from the Icon= line of the desktop file? I think this would increase the chances of this particular application having a matching icon in various icon sets (such as Numix, for example).

@glek: Fixed, thanks.

The desktop file for this package is not compliant with the standards. Specifically:

* "Utilities" is not a valid category (it should be "Utility").

Additionally, I would recommend adding the "TextEditor" category. My particular desktop environment (Deepin Desktop) used to pick up this package as a valid default application for text editing, but won't anymore unless I add this category and remove the invalid "Utilities" category.

As I said, I don't usually update this package manually since it's an insider build.

I'll probably remove the checksums to make this easier, but in the meantime, try running this:

makepkg -g && updpkgsums && makepkg -si
