I've reported it upstream:

1am workaround: cmake -DCOMPRESS_EXECUTABLE=no

The manpage installed by this package has incorrect name/format:


man says 'bogus filename'. I tried manually (un)pack into 'xkb-switch.1.gz' and it worked. Upstream manual page is plain text so I assume it needs to be fixed here right?

Thanks for the package btw

Agreed, updated with new dependencies as well, just in case they are not already installed..

The PKGBUILD's source line should be changed to the following (or equivalent) so that the downloaded file is guaranteed to be unique. ( for reference read at the warning @ )

I've recieved this message when I tried to install it:

The solution is to install libxkbfile which should be added to the make dependencies.
