Can you add aarch64 to the arch array? Builds fine here.

Needs wayland-protocols and cmake in makedepends.

This fails in my chroot without wayland-protocols

Adopted the package and changed repository URL, added icon and applied patches suggested in the comments.

Could we update this package to point to artizirk's repository ?

Maybe also open an issue with wlroots or sway upstream and see if we can somehow move the package into the sway organization, so that it can be maintained ?

Looks like upstream repo is gone. I pushed the latest commits with emersion patch here

My AUR manager keeps on asking me for github login details thinking the repo went private.

Seems like cyclopsian removed their github account. wldisplays git source is unavailable. I've also looked up the project/person on and but there's no trace of wdisplays nor of any announcement about the discontinuation of the project.

Any news?

The use-correct-versions.patch seems to not be needed anymore and causes build to fail. Also a conflicts=(wdisplays) may be added because pacman is not prompting to uninstall wdisplays in favor of wdisplays-git and instead shows file conflicts.

Though kanshi is useful in most times, wdisplays still speed up the configuration process by making it much easier with a GUI. Many thanks to author @cyclopsian and AUR package maintainer @KingofToasters :)

@Jaakkonen: Packages in the AUR may assume that packages from the base-devel package group are installed. pkg-config (or rather, its replacement, pkgconf) is part of the base-devel group, so no problem there.
