Nice, seems to be displaying the Arch logos properly now.

morgenstern commented on 2022-06-04 04:13 (UTC)

@alex.forencich the Arch logos are distributed with the PKGBUILD and are applied in the prepare() function by replacing the default xscreensaver logo images and bitmaps. However, it looks like some additional xscreensaver logos were added in xscreensaver-6.00 and xscreensaver-6.04.

I have pushed an update that includes additional Arch logos to replace the new xscreensaver ones. Let me know if that resolves your issue.

Is it just me, or has this package not been displaying the Arch logo for quite some time now? Is there a configuration setting that needs to be adjusted to get it to display the Arch logo instead of the xscreensaver one?

Hi, this package is recommended in the wiki.

Initially I had an error, installing via ssh. using the terminal on the actual device it worked fine.

Thank you for maintaining this package.

@lockheed you can find a PKGBUILD for version 5.45-2 in View Changes within the Package Actions box.

Have you reported the issue with fprint upstream?

lockheed commented on 2021-04-22 12:45 (UTC)

6.0 no longer works with fprint. Can someone provide PKGBUILT for previouse version?

It seems like autoreconf is breaking the build for me. Build works fine for the main binaries, but fails here:

cp -p xscreensaver-demo-Gtk xscreensaver-demo make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/nick/.cache/yay/xscreensaver-arch-logo/src/xscreensaver-5.44/driver' make[1]: Entering directory '/home/nick/.cache/yay/xscreensaver-arch-logo/src/xscreensaver-5.44/po' make[1]: No rule to make target 'default'. Stop. make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/nick/.cache/yay/xscreensaver-arch-logo/src/xscreensaver-5.44/po' make: [Makefile:28: default] Error 5

Removing the autoreconf step in prepare() appears to fix this.
