@mank319: Seems like I forgot to add the provided version to the 'provides' array, just uploaded a fix. I must have overlooked that in the PKGBUILD specification in the Arch wiki when initially writing the PKGBUILD.

I never had any problems with dependencies myself (I just installed corebird and didn't have any issues), but this change will hopefully satisfy dependencies. Thanks for reporting this bug! Does the fix work for you?

I am not that much into PKGBUILDs, but is there a slight chance you might not have specified which particular (minimum) GTK version your package provides? I see the entry 'pkgver=3.18.1' in your PKGBUILD, but maybe there is something else to specify?

Trying to install it, I receive the following error:
Failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: corebird: requires gtk3>=3.14

And by the way: Thank you *so much* for providing this patch.
I think I couldn't stand "search as you type" in file chooser dialogues :D

The file chooser behaviour has slightly changed with the update to GTK+ 3.18. Typeahead still works just as you would expect. If you want to make a recursive search, you will have to click the search button on the top right.

Unfortunately, typeahead hasn't made it back into GTK+ 3.18, so I will keep maintaining this package. On a related note, I really like the very nuanced, well-reasoned position of GNOME Dev Matthias that takes into account all the the pros and contras of removing any option for typeahead in an objective manner: ;)

By the way: If you want typeahead, I recommend you to also use nautilus-typeahead:

You are my hero. I still can't understand why this incredible useful feature has been disabled. Thank's alot!

Just fixed that, changed description to typeahead.

search-as-you-type is what nautilus does (recursive search), what you mean is type-ahead. But thanks for going through finding a workaround for this problem :)
