I'm confused... I have r82 installed but if I update the package r86 is installed, not r79.

Are you advocating re-installing r79 from my cache?

Checking xsettingsd-git-r86.1b2bcca-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xsettingsd-git E: Missing custom license directory (usr/share/licenses/xsettingsd-git)

Rolled back spam commit performing a completely broken and invalid merge of separate branches, which tried to fix something that @bidulock already successfully convinced the maintainer to fix, 2.5 years ago.

(Seriously, what is with the untested git file merge conflict markers sprinkled everywhere.)

AFAICT this package needs zero changes so it can stay that way...

lfairy commented on 2018-06-29 22:56 (UTC)

Disowned as I no longer use this.

lfairy commented on 2016-03-05 22:23 (UTC)

bidulock: done.

bidulock commented on 2016-03-05 14:20 (UTC)

git should be in makedepends.

kanak commented on 2016-02-19 14:32 (UTC)

Can you add xsettingsd in conflicts and provide fields ?

I'm getting this error... ==> Extracting sources... -> Creating working copy of xsettingsd git repo... fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /dev/shm) Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set). ==> ERROR: Failure while updating working copy of xsettingsd git repo Aborting... I compile in /dev/shm but this is the first time I've seen this error. Could someone please point out where I'm going wrong? I was able to install xsettingsd-git r77.9bc44ad-1 previously. Thanks. Edit: setting GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM=true worked.

Fixed, thanks.

I had to add an mkdir in package() to create the directory the license resides in. diff -ru xsettingsd-git/PKGBUILD xsettingsd-git-mod/PKGBUILD --- xsettingsd-git/PKGBUILD 2015-08-07 06:43:03.000000000 -0700 +++ xsettingsd-git-mod/PKGBUILD 2015-08-08 15:23:28.588060129 -0700 @@ -30,5 +30,6 @@ install -m755 xsettingsd dump_xsettings "$pkgdir"/usr/bin install -m644 xsettingsd.1 dump_xsettings.1 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/man/man1 - install -m644 COPYING "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/"$_pkgname"/COPYING + mkdir -p "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/"$pkgname" + install -m644 COPYING "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/"$pkgname"/COPYING }

Disowned as I have not been actively doing much packaging work recently.

Orphaned (for now).

No longer using this. Orphaning.

Currently not using this. Orphaning.

A "modernized" version of this one:

bidulock commented on 2013-04-16 05:35 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD will no longer build as of makepkg 4.1.0: $pkgdir is not available in build() only in package() so build() needs to be split.

vmll commented on 2012-05-22 22:17 (UTC)

libstdc++5 is linked against. Fixed the CPPFLAGS and arch issues

commented on 2012-05-22 08:53 (UTC)

Nowadays, this one won't build as it is. Prepending "CPPFLAGS=$CXXFLAGS" to "scons xsettingsd dump_xsettings" fixed it for me. By the way, if you have no use for this package anymore, I'm willing to adopt it.

commented on 2011-10-02 15:03 (UTC)

Also, no need to add "libstdc++5" as a dependency.

hatred commented on 2010-11-03 07:47 (UTC)

It is incorrect point arch 'any' for binary packages. Place 'i686' and 'x86_64' instead
