@barburger You could use epoch=1 in the PKGBUILD, as described here, and then use a pkgver as described in the original commenter's link.

Hi there.

I'm a disabled fella with a broken usb C port on my Elite controller. Your work has let me game on Linux. You have no idea how much I appreciate this, thank you :)

Also, works great on my dual-boot :)

@katt thank you for the feedback. If I change the pkgver it thinks the new package is a downgrade. Do you know of any ways to deal with it?

katt commented on 2020-06-29 21:54

Please adjust your pkgver to something a bit more sensible, see:

Also all that echoing in package() should really go into an .install script

Almost forgot, curl is in base-devel and does not need to be included in makedepends.

@JudgeManganese it seems to work fine over here now, too :) Thank you! I restarted after installing which might have helped.

@nicoe works just fine here with that workaround. You might need to restart the service or pick it up from a new location since a few comments ago. You can do the following:

systemctl disable --now xow
systemctl enable --now xow

If the issue still persists, you could file an issue with upstream.

I'm getting the following error when trying to install: make: *** No rule to make target 'xow.service'. Stop.

Trying muhgoslav_klose's workaround doesn't seem to work as the service instantly crashes when trying to pair with a controller.

Hi, I had to remove

make BUILD=RELEASE xow.service

to build it correctly. Works flawlessly.

barburger commented on 2020-05-24 14:22

After upgrade you need to reenable the xow.service, because the service location changed and old symlink is broken.

@Jeffrey4l Added.

@bbrks I can build it without p7zip. Maybe something changed upstream.
