It may be necessary to manually remove xastir (pacman -R xastir) before reinstalling to resolve the conflict of uninstalling lesstif for replacement with openmotif.

Then reinstall the new package.

It appears as though lesstif (which is no longer maintained) has been removed from AUR. I guess it would be good to update the dependencies to use `openmotif` instead. I just re-built xastir with this change made manually and it compiled and seemed to run fine.

Thank you, will fix it.

I'll also switch over the sources source (SIC!) to Github in the process, will take me a couple days to get into it, stay tuned..

Hi! The line "MimeType=text" in both of the desktop files is invalid. It should probably be "MimeType=text/plain". This e.g. makes update-desktop-database output errors.

@netcrusher, how, why? Works fine here.

It seems that the MD5 hashes are broken.

"In 2012, the motif source has been relicensed to LGPL, making the lesstif source redundant and obsolete, as its goal has been achieved, a free motif. As lesstif is practically unmaintained and has serious bugs in the copy/paste realm, I advice to use the Motif source instead of this source."

packages should really depend on openmotif instead of lesstif, and if people really want to use lesstif instead of openmotif, the correct way to do that is "provides=('openmotif')" in the lesstif package.

Ok, thank you for your investigation. But I got it by uncommenting it, so that is ok for me for now. But maybe the sed command needs some quotation marks.

Sorry, I'm not at all familiar with yaourt except what is written about it on the Arch Wiki page.

The error seems to be that the doc directory is not created and so copying files to it fails. I did look into the Makefile but canot find any difference to the other install targets.

I did test build/install on a freshly installed Arch VM and it does work using only makepkg. If you have any idea where yaourt differs from the makepkg way we could figure out how to fix the issue.

This is the error I get, I should tell I am using yaourt. I seems I did not get this error when I used makepkg directly.
