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).

@Sam-Burgos: lib32-gsm & lib32-unixodbc are in the AUR. Oh, and why sane? That's for scanning.

@yochananmarqos: I would look into removing isdn4k-utils until I got my virtual machine back, because of technical issues I haven't been able to check into this before

As for the dependencies, there are some libraries not available on Arch that are on Debian and derivatives (for example lib32-unixobdc) or other that appear under a different name and I had to add them (like the now-defunct isdn4k-utils and the 32-bit library), as for the other dependencies, the idea is to leave a generic meta package wine installer that allows an almost-out-of-the-box experience with Arch users (I am also missing adding some dependencies that allows seamless reproduction of Windows programs that require ALSA instead of Pulseaudio)

As soon as I recover my VM and make some tests, I will update this package

FYI, isdn4k-utils has been removed from the core repo.

EDIT: Looking at the dependencies in the Debian control file, you're missing lib32-gsm and lib32-unixodbc. Technically you're also missing lib32-isdn4k-utils, but it's obsolete now unless someone adds isdn4k-utils to the AUR.

Why did you add lib32-gpm and lib32-gst-plugins-base as dependencies? lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs is an optional dependency of wine-staging.
