Please add 'xcb-util' as depends.

pkgver() prints wrong value: 1.1.r0.g7b86e8b

Added libwm-git AUR package. Installing this after libwm-git fixes the failing build, but libwm is not listed in the dependencies of this package.

I have a fixed PKGBUILD lying around on my box (the patch is literally as simple as adding libwm-git to the dependencies), I'm gonna mail the maintainer about this. If this doesn't get fixed soon, I'll either file an orphanage request or create a fixed aur package under a different name (wmutils-libwm-git?)

Latest release has libwm git repository dependency https://github.com/wmutils/libwm.git

I think that xcb-util-wm should be added as a dependancy, otherwise the build fails.

Thanks!

Thanks, I’m aware of that option; but generally, your PKGBUILD would be much more useful if you adopted the common practices by default; if people see the need to install to /usr/local, they can still do so manually, though it’s not recommended when using pacman.

I agree that renaming binaries is awkward. But the better solution is to just declare the conflict and let people who use wtf decide how they deal with it.

Installing to /usr/local isn’t any better than renaming: Consider someone manually «make installs» wtf at some point. In that case, their wtf installation will unexpectedly overwrite files owned by wmutils-git. This is unexpected since /usr/local should only ever contain things a user installed manually.

This currently installs wmutils into the /usr/local tree. Please don’t do this, the local tree is intended to be used by manually managed packages (cf. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_packaging_standards#Package_etiquette).

There's also an "opt" and "contrib" repository for wm-utils. The below PKGBUILD includes these:
