Interesting file manager. Need to try ...

@anika200: Your PKGBUILD does not change anything. There must be a problem on your side I think.

BTW: Bump version to 3.8.1.

At least on my system with Pacman v4.2.1 - libalpm v9.0.1 the build fails because of problems with the build().
This pkgbuild works for me, maybe it helps someone.

# We need to disable the optimizations because of a bug in gcc
# (see for details)
# Ralf added a gcc constraint check to avoid compiling bad optimized code.
# Because we run a recent version of gcc, we disable the check, and
# disable also the compiler optimizations completely. Because the code
# uses some C++11 features, we need to set this explicitly.
# To bypass the pthread bug, the LDFLAGS is set here explicit until
# the bug is solved. See here for more detail and progress:
# CPPFLAGS="-O0 -std=gnu++11" LDFLAGS=-pthread ./configure --enable-xft --prefix=/usr --disable-cxx-check

# make

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
CPPFLAGS="-O0 -std=gnu++11" LDFLAGS=-pthread ./configure --enable-xft --prefix=/usr --disable-cxx-check
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

Can you put this patch into the package?

If zou don't have the time, I can maintain this package.

Ralf's URL has changed.

Please change PKGBUILD download URL to:

and you'll compile fine.

Had a problem with worker 2.19.0-1:- memory leak & dramatic increase in CPU usage - pulsing every so many seconds sometimes on 2/4 cores. I contacted Ralf, & he thinks it may be the new uDisks code, so he asked me to configure worker with --without-hal --without-dbus, both of which I did (even though I no longer have HAL installed), this solved the problem. I expect we will see an upgrade before too long with this uDisks problem hopefully solved.
