@abhixec You need to download the snapshot for the AUR package, which includes all the required files to build. Some AUR packages can be built with just the PKGBUILD, but definitely not all.

Getting this error: ==> ERROR: install file (networkmanager-dmenu.install) does not exist or is not a regular file.

@blueowl, good catch, thanks! Fixed now.

There is a typo in
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_pkgname/LICENSE.txt" "$pkgdir/usr/share/license/$pkgname/LICENSE"

"license" directory should be "licenses" instead. That's the directory where all packages install their licenses.

@xnick I created a bug report for this on Github:

We can continue troubleshooting there. Thanks!

I came across this error today:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/networkmanager_dmenu", line 598, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/networkmanager_dmenu", line 593, in run
gsm_actions, other_actions)
File "/usr/bin/networkmanager_dmenu", line 334, in get_selection
inp_bytes = "\n".join([str(i) for i in inp]).encode(ENC)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 152: ordinal not in range(128)
when trying to launch it.

So it looks like it finds this character "â" somewhere and poops out. Obviously, it shouldn't be able to find this character anywhere in networkmanager's menus, so it should be somewhere that allows for other input (Access point names perhaps). And indeed, after disabling WiFi, it managed to launch just fine. Looking at nm_applet, I can't find â in any of the AP names, but maybe networkmanager handles this by showing a different character? (a for example).

Correct. When something is fixed in the source, you have to reinstall a source-based package. The AUR doesn't see changes to the source, only to the PKGBUILD. That's normal. So if you want the latest changes for any -git or -svn or -hg package you have to 'reinstall' it.

Is it correct that yaourt doesn't see update of the package with your fix? I needed
yaourt -S networkmanager-dmenu-git
to have it fixed.

Should be fixed now with the latest commit.

Networkmanager 1.4.x breaks nmcli-dmenu. Issue here:

For now either downgrade and be patient until I fix it, or send a patch :)
