I have adopted this package. Among other changes, pkgver is now fixed. Enjoy using xdotool-git.

Hello lowfatcomputing. Your pkgver() is currently broken and does not return a release number, making pacman think the package is being downgraded on upgrades. Also, the way you build the package still makes the binary vulnerable to code-injections. This is a serious problem and is easily fixed by changing a few characters. Please see my comment from 2015.

Please use «make PREFIX=/usr» instead of «make PREFIX="$pkgdir"/usr». The actual install location can be supplied to make with «make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install» during the installation phase. Otherwise, references to the build directory can wind up in the built binary. In this case, the current PKGBUILD will cause a location in /tmp to be added to the executable’s RPATH, which enables other users to inject code into the xdotool binary, which could then be executed by unsuspecting victims.

You need depends=(libxkbcommon libxinerama libxtst) and conflicts=(xdotool) .
