Since yesterday I have an error when building this package.

ERROR: Language Vala does not support position-independent executable

Removing the b_pie flag in /bin/arch-meson seams to fix the build but I'm not sure about the consequences of this change.

Here is the complete log:

@korin43 done, thanks

korin43 commented on 2018-11-28 15:14

This package should depend on gnome-keyring to make password storage work right:

(We use libsecret to try to not be GNOME-specific, but apparently KDE stopped working on their service service backend)

asm0dey commented on 2018-11-09 18:08

@jplatte tank you for notice, fixed

jplatte commented on 2018-11-09 07:24

Why does this package depend on gumbo-git instead of gumbo-parser?

asm0dey commented on 2018-08-14 20:17

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

churro commented on 2018-07-19 05:17

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

TheMatten commented on 2018-07-18 11:26

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

carbolymer commented on 2018-07-14 13:38

Can we get an update on this package?

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