@yochananmarqos: my bad, I updated twice the package due to this, it has been very busy days for me and had an issue with my PC as well, which prevented me to check and update packages, I am checking many of those

@Sam-Burgos: I deleted my comment for a reason, there is no longer a conflict with wine-gui-git as it was fixed upstream.

The Upstream URL should be the GitHub repo, not the download server.

@yochananmarqos: you were right, I will change the dependencies on this package and create another installer that includes a meta packages for that purpose

This discussion is getting rather tiresome. I have all the wine-staging optional dependencies installed and have never had to install anything else. Yet, these are the packages that would be installed on top of that if I installed your package:

Packages (20) lib32-aalib-1.4rc5-2  lib32-cdparanoia-10.2-3  lib32-gpm-1.20.7-2
              lib32-gst-plugins-base-1.16.2-1  lib32-gst-plugins-good-1.16.2-1
              lib32-libavc1394-0.5.4-2  lib32-libdv-1.0.0-5  lib32-libiec61883-1.2.0-2
              lib32-libraw1394-2.1.2-2  lib32-libshout-2.4.3-1  lib32-libvisual-0.4.0-6
              lib32-libvpx-1.8.2-1  lib32-opus-1.3.1-1  lib32-popt-1.16-7
              lib32-speex-1.2.0-2  lib32-speexdsp-1.2.0-1  lib32-taglib-1.11.1-2
              lib32-twolame-0.4.0-1  lib32-wavpack-5.2.0-1  unixodbc-2.3.7-2

What purpose do these packages serve? If you think they should be optional dependencies of wine / wine-staging, then contact the maintainers of said packages and/or file a bug report.

@yochananmarqos @redtide: the whole idea is to create a metapackage to install several dependencies of WINE and related (the same way Mint does it), I understand that this is ArchLinux and so the requirements are different, however, the idea is to install several dependencies available (either on Arch or in AUR) and to ease some of the configuration or missing dependencies process

In case any dependency might be missing, no longer be available (neither in repos or AUR) or change name, you can let me know so I can change it, remove it or do something about it

I don't get why all those unneeded dependencies for a bunch of desktop files and a menu (for this reason I created my own git version).
