FeedReader migrated to meson build system. Please update PKGBUILD as following:

# Maintainer: Grigorii Horos <>
_pkgver=2.4 # Must be manually bumped when a new stable version is released (see pkgver())
pkgdesc="FeedReader is a modern desktop application designed to complement existing web-based RSS accounts."
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('sqlite3' 'gtk3' 'webkit2gtk' 'libnotify' 'libsoup' 'libgee' 'json-glib' 'libsecret' 'libpeas' 'gnome-online-accounts' 'curl')
makedepends=('git' 'vala' 'gobject-introspection' 'meson')

# Upstream tags point releases in a "stable" branch, so these are not reachable from master.
# Therefore, we use the "no tags" version, but manually prepended by the latest stable.
pkgver() {
  cd "$srcdir/FeedReader"
  printf "${_pkgver}.r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

prepare() {
  cd "$srcdir/FeedReader"
  git submodule init; git submodule update

build() {
  mkdir -p "$srcdir/FeedReader/build"
  cd "$srcdir/FeedReader/build"

package() {
  cd "$srcdir/FeedReader/build"
  DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" ninja install

the current PKGBUILD has a slight problem, feedreader can attempt tog rab full articles when the feeds are truncated, but for that it needs to download files from a different repo which can't be done with a mere git clone, to remedy this here's a PKGBUILD that grabs everything it needs to get said files

apparently, woff2 should be added as a dependency as otherwise I get feedreader: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@carbolymer can't we somehow contact admins directly to get this updated?

Can we get an update on this package?

EDIT: Here's my updated PKGBUILD. Feel free to merge the changes to AUR repository:

feedreader is not using cmake any more. They switched to meson.

So makepkg is not working right now

@arjan5 should be fixed now! Please report any issues you have and i will fix them as soon as possible. Thanks

Sorry, I used the wrong LIBDIR!
Please change it to -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib so the plugins can get loaded again.

Having the same issues as @Markiz. Adding -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib to the cmake command fixes that. FeedReader changed their build process a bit, after which they started installing in /usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib.

Markiz commented on 2017-01-30 04:01

error: it wasn't succeeded to finish transaction (the clashing files)
feedreader-git: '/usr/lib64' exists in file system
