@JohnTheCF do you have cava installed from the AUR? I don't know what that is, but I think that is caused by this recent waybar change. This PKGBUILD probably needs to conflict with (and provide?) cava.

Error installing package: waybar-git: /usr/bin/cava exists in filesystem (owned by cava)

This package's PKGBUILD is out of sync with the official waybar in [community], for example missing build dependencies like wireplumber, catch2, and, as well as the ninja build. Here's an updated one.

The pkgver() function is wrong, tag is missing so revision does not match the one reported by Waybar.

$ waybar --version
Waybar v0.9.15-24-g3718902b (branch 'master')

$ pacman -Qs waybar
local/waybar-git r2269.3718902b-1
    Highly customizable Wayland bar for Sway and Wlroots based compositors (GIT)

Please modify pkgver() with git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g' instead.

$ git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Removing waybar-git, updating the system with pacman -Syu, then clean-rebuilding waybar-git fixed the problem for me.

When I am trying to update my system with pacman -Syu I get now:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing spdlog (1.11.0-1) breaks dependency '' required by waybar-git

Can you add aarch64 to the arch=() array? This otherwise builds fine on aarch64.

Should be fixed on master :)

The issue is a missing formatter for std::filesystem::path, which is logged in src/config.cpp l. 33 & 40. You can fix it with appending a .string() to it for conversion to a string.

Here is a PKGBUILD with the patch to do this

And here is the patch isolated:
