I can't build this package under wayland. the -DBEMENU_X11_RENDERER=ON requires X11, and setting it to OFF still triggers lot of errors like "Package 'xproto', required by 'x11', not found".

I didn't have any problem installing community/bemenu, and I couldn't find a way to tweak bemenu-git's PKGFILE to install successfully. Guess I'll have to wait a bit more before I can use bemenu --line-height.

I can't post the build output right now but this might be dependent on the AUR helper being used. I am using pikaur.

That's odd. The build output does say "-- Could NOT find Doxygen (missing: DOXYGEN_EXECUTABLE)", but the build still succeeds as it should. Could you link the build output here? Also, sorry for the late answer, I really need to improve my email workflow.

Not sure if anything changed upstream, but does this package now require doxygen in makedepends?

I was not able to build until I installed doxygen. (Build would fail at find_doxygen step.)

I wrote an email already but didn't get a reply, so I'll write a comment here as well:

First of all, you should update the pkgver or pkgrel, so that AUR helpers automatically pull the new PKGBUILD. And it would also be nice if you could add -DBEMENU_WAYLAND_RENDERER=ON as suggested by ElVirolo. bemenu should still run under X with that option enabled afaik, but you should still test it first to be sure.

PS: If the email address listed on your profile is out-of-date, you should change it.

For Wayland support, one should add -DBEMENU_WAYLAND_RENDERER=ON at the end of the "cmake" line.

Has anyone tried to contact the maintainer?

==> Starting pkgver()... ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, forward slashes, hyphens or whitespace. ==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: r273.0.1.0-7-g8ad07cf

This can be fixed by replacing

printf 'r%s.%s' "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git describe --always)"


printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

true, this works, thanks cauebs! it does not provide a desktop file so it is visible in gnome, you know how to do this one?

timsn commented on 2019-02-02 18:25

@cauebs thanks for pointing this out! I just tried to install it. Adding a '.' at the end of the cmake invocation (in the PKGBUILD file) works well.
