Here's an updated PKGBUILD based on @u666sa's notes:

# Maintainer: Maxime Gauduin <>
# Contributor: Balló György <>

pkgdesc='Widgets and other objects used for indicators'
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

build() {
  cd ido-${pkgver}

  export CC=gcc-8 
  export CXX=g++-8 
  export CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-deprecated -Wno-deprecated-declarations -Wno-error" 

  ./configure \
    --prefix='/usr' \
    --localstatedir='/var' \

  cd ido-${pkgver}

  make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

# vim: ts=2 sw=2 et:

COMPILES!!! Just have to edit build file and add after make CC=gcc-8 CXX=g++-8 CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-deprecated -Wno-deprecated-declarations -Wno-error" and of course install gcc8

Maybe a bit late in the battle.

Trying to set up a proper 'xfe4' notification center, which requires ido. ( xfce4-indicator-plugin)

Build fails, I have to change PKGBUILD and add -Wno-error to CFLAGS, or else all warnings are treated as errors.

Something probably changed in two years in gcc.

CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-deprecated -Wno-deprecated-declarations -Wno-error"

Note that I tried ido-ubuntu which in turns fails du to ubuntu-gtk3 dependency issues I didn't wan to dig in.

@ThanosApostolou, please see the ido-ubuntu package. It is at 13.10 with Ubuntu patches. This package causes issues with other users if it's updated beyond 12.10. Until a new base package is released (which could now be in doubt due to Ubuntu's decision to drop development of the Unity DE), this package is not out-of-date. If ido-ubuntu does not work for you, you are welcome to create your own PKGBUILD based off this one.

@horsemanoffaith Please consider to update this to version 13.10 because mate-indicator-applet needs this newer version. Ido-ubuntu needs its own gtk3-ubuntu which many times fails to install. Instead, there is a patch to enable ido to use the native gtk3. You can see the Stefano's pkgbuild and patch for manjaro here:

This patch was originally suggested by a Mate developer who is using it for opensuse:

This package has been reverted back to public version. ido-ubuntu is now available for anyone wanting to build a newer version of ido.

No problem, I can also be found on freenode. While I'm not always in #archlinux or #archlinux-aur I'm often online and hiding in #goat-dev. The channels are of course full of helpful users whenever you need help, granted in #goat-dev we are few and it's mostly nerding about automation on ARM using Go.

Once everything is sorted and ido-ubuntu is healthy I'd suggest a roll back to the public release here. While I may find pulling a specific git commit from the past mundane it isn't so for every user.

horsemanoffaith commented on 2016-02-04 22:10

Okay, I'll email you later.

WoefulDerelict commented on 2016-02-04 22:04

I'll gladly try to answer any questions I can.

Makes sense. I already have the Ubuntu specific gtk packages here on the AUR. I will create a Ubuntu fork for libindicator and libappindicator and delete the other *indicator packages I have created.

On a side note, you sound pretty knowledgeable... any chance you could help me on some Unity related package issues? I have it sort-of working, but I'm coming across some issues I'm not quite sure how to fix.
