Maybe it's time to merge the two packages into one :p

I have addopted this package so now we have 2 choice for KhronosGroup/Vulkan-ExtensionLayer

@abouvier You have a good point. I ave created vulkan-extensio-layers-git packages in the AUR. It match de vulan-validation-layers Archlinux packages. I added "layers" beacause KhronosGroup/Vulkan-ExtensionLayer have 4 layers available. See the links below. Thanks

This package should be renamed vulkan-extension-layer-git (or maybe layers?) in accordance with other vulkan packages.

Since this package should depend on (published 4 days ago):

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:69 (find_package):
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by
  "VulkanUtilityLibraries" with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "VulkanUtilityLibraries" to
  CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "VulkanUtilityLibraries_DIR" to a directory
  containing one of the above files.  If "VulkanUtilityLibraries" provides a
  separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.

Also, the configuration variable BUILD_LAYERS was removed in

CMake Warning:
  Manually-specified variables were not used by the project:


Finally, VkLayer_khronos_shader_object.json needs to be removed from explicit_layer.d/ so that the directory once again becomes empty for rmdir in the lib32 package() function:

rmdir: failed to remove '.../packages/vulkan-extensionlayer-git/pkg/lib32-vulkan-extensionlayer-git/usr/share/vulkan/explicit_layer.d/': Directory not empty

How about switching pkgver() to git describe --tags --long | sed -r 's,^[^0-9]+,,;s,([0-9]*-g),r\1,;s,[-_],.,g', so that the SDK tag is included in the version (together with the number of commits and git hash)?

@1ace is there some way I can contribute my package changes back to you, if that would help? Thanks for submitting and maintaining this in the first place though!

vulkan-headers>=1:1.3.259, libxcb, libx11, wayland and libxrandr are needed in makedepends.
