The PKGBUILD should be updated so it installs the .desktop file. There is already a file called in the repository so this can be quickly put in the PKGBUILD.

@shadowcreator sorry O:) I am using AUR helper yay wrapped inside pacui and did not bother to learn ho to pass pacui flag to rebuild with the yay --devel flag. I'll stop doing ver bumping ;)

Also FYI, -git/-"devel" packages don't need version bumps, rebuilding the package updates the version using the pkgver() function in the PKGBUILD.

While building it I noticed a message regarding a missing libutf8proc and therefor a disabled feature: libutf8proc not found, unicode normalization will be disabled
Maybe this is worth adding as a dep?

Edit: I noticed your comment on that specific commit, so currently probably not worthwhile :)

@shadowcreator - thx, I've added it as depends, I am not sure if it would run without it as makedepends only.

Thanks for the package!

libxrandr needs to be added to depends or else a clean system/chroot fails to build the package.

@shoober420 no problem, I was stunned by wayst's performance compared to both wayland alternatives kitty or alacritty.

The refresh rate has nice tty feel and it does not hog cpu that much.

I am considering creating another package for version without X11 support compiled in but even with both enabled, it's stellar.

Currently it segfaults alot, but if you find anything please report it at github :)

@freed00m Thank you for uploading this, I’ve been meaning to try this out. It may replace st for me.
