Can you update arch to arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'aarch64')? I can confirm this works on such platform.

wayland-protocols is now a makedep.

wayland-protocols may only be a makedep.
And using readelf -d on the binary suggests as much.

@thayne I'm on Gnome Shell / Mutter

@somepaulo: What compositor are you using? That sounds like your compositor uses version 5 of the wl_seat interface, but wev requires at least version 6. I don't get that error with sway (version 1.6.1)

Running wev as my user I consistently get the message wl_registry@2: error 0: invalid version for global wl_seat (17): have 5, wanted 6. Is it just me? Is this about how Wayland is compiled (the only thing I found online)?

I most certainly can (see latest version)

Arvedui commented on 2021-03-20 16:27 (UTC)

can you please pass CFLAGS and LDFLAGS to the make call in build? Something like this should do:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

@qubidt clear buildDir wev

you can see where buildDir is

yay -Pg | jq -r '.buildDir'

the default is

rm -rf $HOME/.cache/yay/wev
