Most of the packages that “require” it are actually Electron apps that copy&pasted their dependency lists from elsewhere or failed to update them: Chromium (and subsequently Electron) haven’t been dependent on this for years.

If you want to help, you can ask the maintainers of all those apps if they really still need gconf.

None that I use still need it (spotify and hamsket-bin), and their maintainers removed the superfluous dependency.

If you got build issues, please make sure

  1. base-devel group is installed [1]
  2. you are not using a broken AUR helper like pacaur. See

If the build is still not working, use clean chroots [2] to build it.

This package still needs gobject-introspection as a dependency. Install this if encountering some M4 file missing errors.

builds fine on aarch64

@HunabKu I can't reproduce unfortunately, for me it downloads just fine.

Seems like a temporary issue; are you still having it?

@haawda: Honestly, that repo is an archive (plus the project is dead anyway), so I don't think it really makes sense to call it -git.

The only reason I removed the commit is because I wanted to clean up the PKGBUILD and it seemed unnecessary to specify the commit since it was the latest one anyway, and it will forever remain that way (since it's an archive).

But yeah I can add it back, for consistency's sake.

If you want to pull from git, but not use a specific commit, the package name should be gconf-git.

@daniel_shub thank you, I completely forgot about that. I did have base-devel installed myself, that's why I didn't even notice that those dependencies were missing.

But yeah, I will be reverting the changes (if people run into issues because they don't have it, they'll hopefully see @yan12125's pinned comment).

@IslandC0der the base-devel package group is an assumed prerequisite for using the AUR. The base-devel package group includes the automake, patch, and pkgconf packages so they should not be included in makedepends.

Thank you @algorythmis and @Soptik, will do.

Soptik commented on 2020-08-30 23:09

patch should be added as a build dependency.
