I got an error since 1.18-2 with yay:

==> Entering fakeroot environment...

==> Starting package()...

install: cannot stat '/home/user/.cache/yay/lcdtest/src/lcdtest-1.18/build/lcdtest': No such file or directory

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

Can someone help?

The patch is not needed anymore and is causing following issue:

$ lcdtest
fatal error: can't open font
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/share/fonts/TTF/LiberationMono-Regular.ttf", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Made it work when using ttf-liberation-ib from infinality-bundle-fonts:

must be replaced build()

package() {
cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/
patch -p1 <$srcdir/patch
install -d -m0755 ${pkgdir}/usr/bin
install -m0755 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/build/${pkgname} ${pkgdir}/usr/bin
install -d -m0755 ${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/man1
install -m0644 ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/man/${pkgname}.1 ${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/man1

To make it work in line 745 of the lcdtest.c should be following (right path to font):
const char font_path [] = "/usr/share/fonts/TTF/LiberationMono-Regular.ttf";
