PSA: I've started hosting this as a prebuilt package in my repository for those that want to install it using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

That's entirely up to the maintainer.

I don't have any opinion on that front I was simply answering your question as to whether the package can be built without Nautilus.

@Dies If it's optional why not have the user include it if they want it? Instead of making everyone who doesn't need nautilus support modify the pkgbuild.

Dies commented on 2021-04-06 18:38


No. Nautilus, Nemo and Thunar are optional dependencies.

You only need their libraries of you want to build the extensions.

Edit the pkgbuild.

Does nautilus really need to be a make dependency? Now I have to pull all of gnome down just to build.

Please avoid installing into /usr/libexec directory. Most simple way is to use arch-meson preconfiguration like this:

arch-meson "$pkgname-$pkgver" build
ninja -C build

@schaetzc I don't know where that came from, but it's probably an artifact of initial attempts to build this when it was crashing like crazy. I'll fix that.

Thank you for maintaining this AUR package. I'm a bit surprised that the build options are set to --buildtype=debugoptimized and not --buildtype=release. Is this intentional? I thought AUR packages were aimed at end users just wanting to use the application. Therefore a debuggable binary doesn't seem necessary.

I built Nemo file manager extension by modifying the build() section of PKGBUILD as follows :

build() {
   cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
   meson --prefix /usr --buildtype=debugoptimized -Dnemo=true build_dir
   ninja -v -C build_dir

It builds the extension and works correctly but throws a warning like this while building :

==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

Should I be worried about this warning ? or, is it just a debug info ?

I couldn't install this package using pacaur - same problem as @matthew2 - until I installed libxml2, then it worked.

@caleb Thanks for responding. I'll keep looking to see if I can find the missing dependency and I'll definitely report if I do.

Thanks for the link to your repo, too. That's quite convenient.
