Hi, can you please remove the automatic start and unit enablement of this package? I think you copied this from the Debian package, it doesn't belong on Arch.

You can pretty much delete this whole file and stop including it in the package install - the /usr/bin symlink needs moved out of the scripts above and into your PKGBUILD so that the system can properly track who owns it as a deployed "file" - when you link and remove in scripts, it's "untracked" and leads to problems. Link it in the PKGBUILD package() section and the tooling will automatically do the right thing. It will install/remove the symlink with the package on it's own.

E.g. good vs. bad:

$ ls -l /usr/bin/{bunzip2,session-manager-plugin}
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  5 Nov 12 06:52 /usr/bin/bunzip2 -> bzip2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 52 Nov 20 14:41 /usr/bin/session-manager-plugin -> /usr/sessionmanagerplugin/bin/session-manager-plugin

$ pacman -Qo /usr/bin/{bunzip2,session-manager-plugin}
/usr/bin/bunzip2 is owned by bzip2 1.0.8-3
error: No package owns /usr/bin/session-manager-plugin

As Arch is a systemd system, we do not need /etc/init/session-manager-plugin.conf as well. This is the only package out of 1,270 on my system placing a file in /etc/init/ :)

I also ran into this problem on Manjaro. I searched briefly online and couldn't figure what cleanBuild was (I'm new to Manjaro / Arch / AUR).

For reference, the solution that worked for me was:

# remove existing build files
pamac clean -b

# update, which clones a fresh git repo
pamac update

@CallumDenby cleanBuild worked! Thanks, I didn't know that was an option. I wonder why cleanBuild was required.

@jdreaver Do you have any tips to reproduce this? I can't recreate it on my end. Can you post the sha512sum of your download or try cleanBuild?

Thanks for making this package in the AUR!

Unfortunately, I'm getting a validation error on the .deb file in the latest version. This is part of my output when updating with yay:

Thanks @gr211, updated with the changes.

Thanks for this package. Made some changes here

to reflect the fact that files are being moved out of /usr/local into /usr.
