Thanks a lot! Finally installs with no issue.

I can't reproduce it. The installed-tests should be created after it compiles. I have no idea how that isn't happening for you. That makes me think there is perhaps a missing dependency somewhere. Fortunately, rm has the -f option so I can workaround this without deviating from upstream too much. I'm already skipping the tests, so one extra flag shouldn't hurt. Try it now. Should be fine.

Removing the package cache you mean deleting the cloned repos? Yeah, I deleted that and even cleared all my package cache with pacman -Scc. Git cloned a brand new one and the error still occurs when I run makepkg with -sirc arguments. Running -sir on another clone and going to .../usr/lib/ won't show a file or directory named installed-tests.

Bizarre. That directory definitely does exist. Try removing the package cache and installing it again from scratch.

I get this error: "rm: cannot remove '~/glib2-patched-thumbnailer/pkg/glib2-patched-thumbnailer/usr/lib/installed-tests': No such file or directory" at the end of compiling. It refuses to install.

Your AUR helper and/or makepkg should tell you that glib2 conflicts with glib2-patched-thumbnailer and prompt you to remove glib2. After hitting yes, it'll replace it with glib2-patched-thumbnailer.

Edit: Because GNOME doesn't seem to properly redirect their repo, you may have to remove the glib2-patched-thumbnailer in your cache if you want to update in the future. At least I just encountered a case where this happened.

thanks, now it downloads and compiles. What is the instructions for removing "glib2" and installing new "glib2-patched-thumbnailer". "glib2" is the dependency for most packages. How to swap glib2?

EDIT: already done, pacman just asked me to swap packages, my error was clicking entern button, so I wrote "y" and then clicked enter.

Ah thanks for that. GNOME moved to gitlab and it looks like the redirect from the old url doesn't work anymore, so I corrected that. Also like the gtk3-patched-filechooser-icon-view and gtk2-patched-filechooser-icon-view packages, I moved the patch inside the package. For those updating, please remove the glib-thumbnailer.patch file in your AUR's cache directory so it can be properly tracked and you can avoid errors.

Download fails.

All good now, thanks for the quick fix.
