Good catch! I have updated the .install file!

All the best,

This just bit me again. The .install message needs to be updated to match the true install location.

HalosGhost commented on 2015-12-17 04:22


Actually, it seems that upstream intentionally changed the install location to /usr/share, so that is where I will be leaving it.

All the best,

Ahh yes. That would be because upstream's Makefile does not specify the full install path. That is okay though because I just realized the version I have marked currently is quite wrong. So I will update the pkgver() function and the package() function tonight.

The install location just jumped from /usr/share/zsh/plugins to /usr/share.

Is that deliberate?

Thanks for the heads-up! It seems upstream has added a nice-and-simple `make install` rule to make our lives simpler. I have updated the package to utilize it so you should have everything upstream provides officially now.

All the best,

The .version and .revision-hash files are missing.

stef204, nice! I had no idea that had made it into [community]. The PKGBUILD has been updated. Thanks for the note.

can you please add
to the PKGBUILD?
there is an official package in Community.

It's funny. I've had that in my local copy for ages. Don't know how I forgot to upload the fix. The package has been updated. Thanks for the note.

All the best,

The path to the plugin file in zsh-syntax-highlighting.install is wrong:
/usr/share/zsh/plugins/zsh-syntax-highlight/zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh should be replaced by

Updated for modern VCS guidelines.

All the best,

HalosGhost commented on 2013-09-22 21:44

This package is rather out of date for VCS guidelines. I have an updated package ready to upload if you do not wish to maintain it anymore. If that is the case, please orphan it, if not, please update the package for the latest practices.

All the best,

Tnx for packaging this nice extension.
However please check your PKGBUILD, I think the correct GIT url is:
