There seems to be a missing makedepends, but I'm not sure what it is:

Hi, git makedepend is missing.

Follow-up: upstream (~sircmpwn/ confirmed that GNOME does not support the Wayland protocols necessary for wshowkeys to work correctly.

Can't seem to find a way to report issues upstream, so I'm posting here. After installation wshowkeys segfaults:

$ wshowkeys wl_registry@2: error 0: invalid version for global wl_output (4): have 2, wanted 3 Segmentation fault
