This needs to also provide and conflict with xapp.

"working", yes. "good", no. I've taken this opportunity to adopt the package and base it off of my [community] package.

Things you missed:

  • pygobject-devel is wrong and not needed at all, it does need to be able to import gi under both python and python2 (which means python{,2}-gobject).

  • The pkgver is wonky.

  • Some scripts require python in depends, unless you remove them which I have done because they are useless and require e.g. Debian-specific renames of the gist utility.

  • meson should use the "plain" releasetype in order to fully respect makepkg.conf

I made a working PKGBUILD here:

PKGBUILD needs update!

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/aur-xapps-git/./PKGBUILD: line 27: ./ No such file or directory

xapps is using meson build now.

@kernelmd: It needed some more changes. Updated PKGBUILD file:

willemw, unfortunately I can't test it atm, as I don't have arch installed. The error should be fixed by installing gtk-doc package. Please try it and reply here with the results, so that I could update the package.

./ line 28: gtkdocize: command not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). PKGBUILD of xapps has: makedepends=('gnome-common' 'gobject-introspection')

oberon2007, thank you for feedback. I have just updated the package.

depends=('libgnomekbd') needs to be added. Thank you for the x-apps packages! :)
