Hello again, sorry for disturbing the peace once more, but I got a case that shows my RGB more, so I actually started using this more :P

I fixed up the PKGBUILD so that it ships the included .conf and .desktop file, which includes far more rules and an actually working .desktop file.

I should probably submit some of this upstream but honestly after dealing with qmake I'm mentally spent.

@katt thanks for the suggestions to the PKGBUILD. Changes have been committed.

Please don't set -j, makepkg.conf handles that and should not be overridden.

makepkg should also not touch the users directory (as you do in check())

commit 0ca3781 for latest version 0.4, added .conf and .desktop, updated PKGBUILD package () to install them and the qt/OpenRGB.png as is on the openrgb-git repo.

This package is missing hidapi as dependency. Building in a clean chroot fails without this package.

@dangersalad can you add the udev rules in the PKGBUILD installation process? See:

This is how the -git version of this package does it:

THanks for maintaining this package!
