@milouse, don't apologize, thanks for your time :) . Hope that will work. I found this ( and this ( which might explain why this dependency had to be set before.

Sorry, I was off last week.

I must admit I don't remember very well why I set this dependency. I think it's because I see it in another appimage package.

I'll push a new package revision without it, and we'll see if it's ok or not.

Is there any legitimate reason for this package to depend on gconf (which is obsolete and depends on python2 which makes it even more obsolete)? I did "pacman -Rdd gconf" and couldn't notice any issue with the AppImage.

As I cannot support all aur helper of the world, without help from them I'll let the PKGBUILD as this.

As far as I understand, yay seems to run makepkg --noprepare --nobuild -c before calling another makepkg, which seems redondant and useless for me. On the other hand, the AppImage extraction is done automatically by makepkg and I see no case where it'd be a good idea to stop makepkg from extracting it, and doing it myself in build or prepare.

Moving the chmod line to the prepare function fix the issue when using makepkg --nobuild -c but doesn't fix it when using yay.

Weird. I already put the chmod instruction in the build function. I didn't know someone may run makepkg --nobuild… Can you explain me when it may be usefull?

However, I fix this by moving the chmod line to the prepare function. Hope it won't break anything else.

Reproducible with makepkg, although only specific flags. Using makepkg --nobuild -c will reproduce it.

It looks like the AppImage contains directories with wrong chmod (/usr/share/icons is missing u+w), this causes my AUR helper (yay) to fail when trying to cleanup the sources directory.

Maybe it should be handled in the PKGBUILD: chmod 775 $srcdir/usr/share/icons

Hi Milouse,

Please update your PKGBUILD for working install.
