I'm getting an error when attempting to install
[joe@new-host-3 xf86-input-cmt]$ makepkg -sri
==> Making package: xf86-input-cmt 2.0.5-2 (Tue Dec 15 11:24:33 EST 2015)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
error: target not found: libevdevc
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
I've tried installing the dependencies myself but still get the same error. Do I need to setup something to make them work since they aren't getting installed with the AUR package?

use xf86-input-cmt-git for this to work with xorg 1.18.

Remember to update your conf files after (# cmt-post-install install)

doesn't work with xorg 1.18 at the moment

Hi, thanks for the report.
You are right it is missing, but the touchpad is working fine, i'll remove the symlink in xf86-input-cmt-setup for now and add it back when upstream .debs are updated.

Thank you muchly for this package.

However, a strange issue has turned up for me; 40-touchpad-cmt.conf from the upstream package is missing from /usr/share/xf86-input-cmt, and xf86-input-cmt-setup references it in a symlink in your X config.

I'm about to try manually dropping it into place. Is it possible that something regressed in the switch to the .deb package?

That's a fair point.

Upstream was broken for me but since the change to .deb's it's working so thanks for that!

A couple of reasons:
Most chromebook don't have a lot of computational power so compiling can be annoying.
Upstream occasionally broke things and it was annoying creating patches only to realise the issue is fixed two hours later sometimes.
Deb packages don't get updated as regularly and are more stable.

I may create -git versions of these packages though for people who want to use that.

Why the switch to .deb packages?

joebonrichie commented on 2015-08-09 09:59

I just switched this package to install from .deb package instead of compiling and installing from git. The package will also install a script file for you to manually run after install to symlink the correct conf files.

Any issues let me know.

I will be switching the dependencies 'libgestures' and 'libevdevc' to install from .deb packages as well shortly.

the dependency google-gflags has been renamed to gflags, please update.
