Bermond: Thanks for the comment :) The reason why I specified wayland explicitly is in the event mesa drops wayland as a dep (probably not likely) we would have issues in this package. I chose to be explicit rather than implicit here.

Bermond commented on 2017-03-02 17:30

You don't need to specify wayland in depends since it's already required by mesa. Just wayland-protocols.
My two cents :)

bro VLC don't run in GNOME 3.22 and MATE 1.16. How can i fix that?

WorMzy commented on 2017-02-20 18:20

Thanks. :)

WorMzy: While VLC itself doesn't technically require wayland-protocols (unless you have wayland installed already) there's some dependency hell going on amongst some of the packages and the GL libs (which VLC does require to compile). To avoid all that I've added wayland and wayland-protocols to the PKGBUILD as well as your request for qt5-x11extras.

WorMzy commented on 2017-02-12 02:35

@erdosain9: make the changes I suggested to the PKGBUILD (see the comment below yours) then rebuild the package.

Some help, please.

Currently fails to build with the following error:

checking for the Wayland protocols... not found
Package wayland-protocols was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `wayland-protocols.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

Fixed by adding wayland-protocols to the makedepends array.

Namcap also suggests that qt5-base should be a dependency, rather than just a makedep. It also says that libarchive, libsecret, and hicolor-icon-theme should be added as dependencies.

The backup array is unnecessary as neither file is provided by the package, and most of the .install file is handled by pacman hooks, so those lines can be removed from it.

I'd also like to request that qt5-x11extras be added to the dependencies, as the qt gui doesn't work if compiled without this package.

agapito: touché, I've removed it from the makedeps. Thanks for the comment!

kdelibs should be dropped from makedepends; is not needed to build this package.
